Local mum of 1 Fiona, lets us know how she started her handmade bow business and after 7 years, she shares what she’s learned along the way!


After finding it almost impossible to purchase quality hair accessories for her own bub that didn’t leave marks on babies’ soft heads, Fiona set out to create her own handmade hair accessories and bows. Little Bow Co is a Camden based boutique hair accessory brand. Little Bow Co’s range has grown & evolved to include custom orders and special requests, whilst continuing to make our signature bows.


A Bit about Fiona & how Little Bow Co began

I’m a mum to an almost 8 year old, I’ve lived and worked in Camden for most of my life. I started making hair accessories shortly after my daughter was born because I couldn’t find quality accessories that didn’t leave marks on my baby’s precious little head. Word then spread and I began making them for friends and family. I then realised that the demand was there, I figured out how to create a website and I officially launched Little Bow Co on my daughter’s 1st Birthday!

The Best part of my job

I absolutely love creating special pieces for my customers, seeing them wearing them and hearing how much they love them really makes my day.

My one piece of advice to someone starting out in a new business

Starting a business is always daunting, it took lots of trial and error to perfect the bows, and find the right glue and fabrics that would withstand the test of time. I poured hours in to get it right and wouldn’t settle for second best.

Just believe in yourself, be unique and be you. Don’t worry what everyone else is doing, you will get copycats just take that as a compliment.

My customers love…

At the beginning of the year, it’s always school bows. I do have a large range of local school fabrics and if I don’t have the fabric you’re after I can custom make alternatives.

As for most popular bow our Molly Bows are always a winner.

Molly Bows are available in Single clips or headbands.
Clips are a metal alligator clips with teeth to grip and the middle of the bow wrapped around the centre.
Headbands are soft nylon that are super stretchy and will fit from newborn to adult.


Another popular item is our personalised baby swaddles and sheets. These have quickly become a ‘go to’ baby gift for so many customers!

My top tips for sorting your hair accessories

Sorting your accessories into different types works well. Keep all your hair elastics in one container, and Scrunchies in another.
Hair accessory hangers are also great. I have one for my daughter and it hangs on her bedroom door so all the bows clip onto it so they don’t get squashed in drawers you can also easily see and grab what you need!

Seven years ago I started this little business. 
It all started with making some bows for my daughter not knowing if anyone would like what I created but I took the leap and launched my website with a small selection of bows. I still remember how excited I was when I got my first order and still to this day I get very excited for every order that comes through.
I  wanted to say a massive thank you to my customers! If it wasn’t for you and your continued support I wouldn’t be where I am today.
