Little girl's clothes are fun to trim with buttons, lace or ribbon and we (my 4 year old and I) like coordinate hair accessories. A whole spool (18 ft.) of polyester ribbon is less than $2. at JoAnn's. Sometimes I just cut a length of matching ribbon to tie arround braids or pony tails. I've also hot glued ribbon, buttons, bows or my favorite, ribbon roses to metal hair clips, that just slide into hair. I got the idea when I saw some for sale for $6. each (not per pair) with a bow glued to it at my DD's "children's" hair salon. The clips are the inexpensive metal kind that are designed to hold hair back while styling as they are quite unattractive unless covered. My daughter's hair is not thick but not baby fine either. These clips may slide out of super fine hair. I've seen regular barrettes in the craft section that are meant to decorate, but we've done well with the slide in kind.

The clip I believe you are speaking of are called alligator clips. I use them to make baby hair bows, however, I cover the clip with grosgrain ribbon. This keeps it from tangling or slipping out of fine hair. I then glue the bow to the grosgrain covered alligator clip. Hope this helps.
