We've extolled the virtues of bobbi pins and banana clips, and now it's time to pay tribute to the mighty hair bow. With its cutesy shape, it can sometimes be a little too sweet, but we've found some options with edge: ♥ Bandana Bow Clip, DirtyRoseCreates ($2.50, pictured). These durable alligator clips fit dual personality tomboy-girly girl types.
♥ Duct Tape Hair Bows, iheartducttape ($3). This crafty shop will custom make a bow from any duct tape you can find -- the current featured designs include Paul Frank monkeys, blue paisley and SpongeBob (they also makes duct tape headbands!).
