For Hair Bows: Single or Double Prong Alligator Clips?

I hate to take up a whole thread to ask this little question, but is it better to use a single or double prong alligator clip for making hair bows? They are for personal use, just want to do some cutesy ones as a craft project with my oldest DD.

My SIL made me some and she used the double kind. The can also be clipped onto a woven headband for little girls!

I don't think there's a huge difference in the end product. But when I have the choice, I go with the double prong. For me, they are easier to cover and craft on.

Use the double pronged one since it holds the hair tighter, especially if the hair accessories that you are doing is bigger or heavier than the normal ones. If it is for huge bows, I definitely suggest a double prong clip.
