Ponytail Streamers

Ponytail Streamers
Another one of our most popular products are ponytail streamers. These beautiful bows work best for preschoolers and up. Pull hair half up or into a full ponytail. Each bow is made with 6 streamers of varying widths. The ends are heat-sealed to eliminate fraying. Streamers can be made with a high quality hair elastic or the most popular way, attached to a partially-lined alligator clip. This option gives moms and girls the best control in regards to placing the bow and making it centered on the ponytail.
These are great for cheerleaders or future cheerleaders. Choose from a variety of solids, stripes, polkas and prints. In the next few weeks, more and more ready to ship streamers will be photographed and added to our website,

Tuxedo Bows

Tuxedo Bows
Introducing Hair Bows for Older Girls - Tuxedo Bows! Simple in form, but oh so cute in hair, the tuxedo bow is a great option for older girls that like to accessorize without looking too frilly. Princess Prettys tuxedo bows come attached to a french barrette or a snap clip. French barettes are best for girls with a lot of hair or thick hair, where snap clips work best for those with not a lot of hair or hair that is fine.
Small tuxedos are made with two loops of 7/8 inch grosgrain ribbon and large tuxedos are made with two loops of 1 1/2 inch grosgrain ribbon. Both sizes are made to be 4 inches across.
The color and pattern combinations are endless. Look at our website, in the next coming weeks to see new tuxedo bows. We will also be offering a "Create a Custom Tuxedo Bow" option, where you will be in charge of creating a bow specific to your princess's wardrobe. Princess Prettys offers tons of solid and polka dot ribbon choices, along with a wide variety of novelty prints. Check under "Color Chart" on our website to view choices.

Gearing Up for the 4th of July

Summer has almost reached its middle...can you believe it is almost the 4th of July? I am busily trying to get my stuff together for the Grandville, MI show. I ordered a ton of new novelty prints, including zebra print, ice cream cones, cherries, turtles, goldfish, baseball, soccer and basketball. I have also gotten 3/8 inch ribbons to match the Gymboree lines from 2008. These are going to look great in korker bows and woven headbands.

If there is anything that you want to order on the website, or custom order, choose local pickup at checkout and I would be happy to bring them to the Grandville show for pickup if you are already planning on attending.

Rockford Start of Summer Show a Success

Hello all! I am fresh off the Rockford, MI craft show and I am sunburned and tired - but still really happy! It was a 3 day show and I was able to get my business cards out to a lot of people. The hand bags and diaper bags that I added to my booth were a big success, and I am anxious to get more together for the Grandville show. I want to give a HUGE thank you to Kelly Bennett, my friend and partner in crime for helping me on Friday and Saturday. If it wasn't for her, my tent would have flew across the Rockford Dam and bows would have littered the streets. Thank you also to Casey Bennett, her brother and Rockford Firefighter for bringing me some cement blocks to weigh my tent down.

I decided to offer face painting on the 2nd day to kids and it went over big time. Every child walking around had my art on the cheeks and I had a line of children all day long. It was fun to do and it was great to hold up the mirror when I was done and see a big smile spread across their faces.

I had a great time, minus the sunburn, and I look forward to coming back next year.
