My daughter has a thick of platinum-blonde hair, but as an infant the baby-fine strands had a hard time holding on to decorative clips. And, there's nothing more annoying than having your lil darling decked out in a dress and being asked if she's a boy!

Then, I found these fool-proof barrettes by No Slippy Hair Clippy. The $6–$20 handmade bows are velvet lined with a magnetic clip that secures them to the hair shaft and won't do any damage if your tot tugs at them. Available in everyday and soirée styles all named for lil girls from Ava to Lola to Kennedy, you can find the perfect accessory for any outfit. And, this mom-owned company makes special varieties for holidays and birthdays.
