Moms and grandmothers everywhere are learning how to make adorable hairbows for their daughters and granddaughters. And we’re going to show you the ribbon that makes the best hair bows.

Grosgrain Ribbon

Almost all hair bows are made from grosgrain ribbon with only a handful of exceptions. The reason? Grosgrain ribbon is easy to shape, heavier in fabric to keep its shape, and provides a good grip for gluing onto alligator clips. The grooves seen on grosgrain ribbon make the ribbon much more pliable to adjust, hold, and glue. The glue seeps into the bumps on the ribbon and therefore creates a stronger hold. It can be difficult to glue other types of ribbon onto metal because of how smooth the metal is, but grosgrain ribbons make it a breeze to create beautiful hair bow pieces.
