If you follow me on Snapchat (christinestvil), Periscope, Instagram or really any other social media channel, then you already know how much my girls and I love GaBBY Bows. Gabby Goodwin and her mom, Rozalynn have solved the age-old headache of missing and/or disappearing barrettes. They’ve created a double-face, double-snap barrette that holds hair in place and doesn’t slip out. Genius, right?!
So what makes these barrettes so dope and why should you want them for your own little girl, or friends and family members of little girls? Here are 5 simple reasons:
My girls love wearing beads in their hair. But momma ain’t always got time for that! So GaBBY Bows are a great alternative and they are equally as excited to wear them. Actually, they’re more excited to wear them because they know who is behind the creation. They love watching Gabby on Periscope and can’t wait to meet her one day.
I don’t know about you, but I was so sick and tired of buying and replacing the regular barrettes pretty much every time I needed to do the girls’ hair. Those cheap barrettes add up over time. Ever since I found out about GaBBY Bows through Black Biz Scope sometime last year, we have been using them. We’ve been collecting them but have not had to replace any.
If you have little girls, you know they can be picky. And if you have girly girls, you know they have to have a say in everything. My oldest girl is very much into fashion and what she wears, and how I do her hair. Both girls have specific color choices every time I do it. So I appreciate the fact that Gabby Bows has a variety of colors and designs for even the pickiest of girly girls.
I really love the fact that the GaBBY Bows design is super simple to use that even my 5-year-old (who was 4 when she started using them), is able to put them in her own hair. Seriously, both of them even recently demonstrated their skills on Periscope.
One of the things I used to hate when I used the “other” barrettes is when the hair would twist and the design would be backward. With GaBBY Bows, you will always see these cute designs that currently come in “Little Lady” and “Sweet Pea” styles and assorted colors.
Check out Gabby and Rozalynn in their interview below that recently aired on The Real.
We love GaBBY Bows so much that we wanted to give away a trio set of these fabulous barrettes for the little girl in your life. Simply use the giveaway widget below to enter.
And even more exciting, GaBBY Bows currently has a Kickstarter campaign going to raise money for the release of new designs. They are soooo close to reaching their goal of $25K. If they don’t reach $25K, they won’t be able to keep any of the money raised. I can’t have that on my conscious, so in addition to the giveaway, I’ve also just pledged to support this campaign. Will you join me, and invite your family and friends to do the same? The giveaway will run from now until the end of their Kickstart campaign, on July 31, 2016.
Check out Gabby’s Kickstarter campaign here and the adorable video of how it all started, why they’re doing this campaign, and what’s in store for this 9-year-old kidpreneur and her mom.
This is not a sponsored post. We just truly love this product and want to see Gabby Bows available at every beauty supply store across the country.

I would have to say to utensil that helps you put beads on instead of aluminum foil but Gabby bows is my favorite hair accessory because they stay in place until I remove them!!
Christine St.VilJuly 20, 2016 at 1:41 PM
Oh yes! It took me forever to figure out what that plastic little utensil did. I was mad I did it the hard way for so long LOL But I agree, the Gabby Bows definitely stay in place 🙂

I hate my daughter thinks she is to old to wear her hair like that. She is the in between age so I keep her hair braided but these are super cute and I love the colors

The product/ inventions that has made my life easier is from another BlackBizScoper Gwen Jimmere’s Naturalicious it has cut down my wash day tremendously! I also love GabbyBows I have bought several packages for little girls that are here already also for little girls that are on their way into the world! I wish GabbyBows was around when I was younger than I wouldn’t come home from school without my barrettes. When you have GabbyBows you will have no more lost barrettes!!
Christine St.VilJuly 20, 2016 at 1:46 PM
Yes! Gwen’s Naturalicious product is such a great invention. That’s awesome, thanks so much for helping to spread the word about this fabulous product 🙂

Wow, so many inventions have made life easier. I will say my mobile device. It has become a one stop shop for connecting with people, family, doctors, etc. It has become the hub of my life.
Nori and I are going to do our part to support. I want to sit down and do it with her so she can see little miss Gabby is a kid just like her.

#Blackgirlmagic to the fullest! SUPER cute and very inspiring. My daughter is 10 so she’s a little too old for barrettes but these would be perfect for my 2 1/2-year-old niece.
StacieJuly 20, 2016 at 7:08 PM
Good for her! I’ve heard about these somewhere. My gbaby could really use these. I’m always finding barrettes all over my house. I’ll be sure to share about this.

Can you believe I am tearing up reading and watch this? Wow its just amazing what an idea and the positivity and instillment of dreams you can put into your children can manifest. Sometimes people forget children are little humans, and these little humans are highly creative and can really change the world because they arent tainted like many adults. They already believe in the impossible they just need someone to believe in them back and Gabby is so blessed to have a mom who enriches entrepreneurship. I really wish it was instilled in me as a child or I would of been a childhood entrepreneur too! If I see some Gabby bows in the store I am buying them to support this princess!
