About WhataBabe

On Etsy since 2011

Welcome to What a babe!

I have been to the popular children's stores and have seen the "competition's" hair accessories. You will not be disappointed when you choose What a Babe for all your bows. I offer high quality, boutique style hair accessories at an affordable price. My accessories are checked and double checked for quality control, mountings are tested and double tested, and ends are decoratively cut and heat sealed to prevent unraveling. Try What a Babe!

I take care to create quality, handmade items you and your loved ones are sure to adore. Please contact me with any questions or requests!

**My Quality Control Experts are a 4 year old and a 1 year old. The 4 year old has been at this for a long time, and she takes great pride in her work, putting each hairbow through vigorous pulling and testing, muddy yards, long active days, and through the washer & dryer. ;)

Hello and welcome to What a Babe where quality really matters. I offer lined hairclips and heat-sealed ends so your bows will last! (If you'd prefer yours be made differently than described or pictured, please ask!) I strive to offer you products I value for my own little ones so you will be able to enjoy them as well. I try to keep regular business hours of Monday through Friday, 9 AM-5 PM, although I occasionally respond to emails on the weekend or at night. :)

I will usually finish your custom orders in 3-9 business days and will try to keep in contact with you to let you know a timeline. Larger orders may take a little longer (about 7-12 business days depending on the size of the order). Please let me know if you are in a time crunch and I will try to work with you!

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
As with any handmade items, no two are exactly the same. The beauty is in the uniqueness of the item! Please understand this is why I do not accept returns. If you feel misled in some way, please message me and we can talk through it. I love my customers and want to work on making you a happy camper! :) Much of my business is through repeat customers who love the quality and uniqueness of items they have received from What a Babe!
I accept payment directly through Etsy (including the Etsy gift card!) and through Paypal which includes all major credit cards.

Your payment clears instantly with most credit cards. If you pay through Paypal using an eCheck from your bank account, it takes about 1 week. It is not me causing the hold up. It is the connection of your bank and Paypal. If you need your order ASAP, please pay by credit card through either direct checkout or Paypal.

As soon as your payment clears, I will create your custom order, and then ship your items (usually within 2-5 business days). If payment has not cleared within 8 days, I will relist the items.
When shipping your item, I will use as little packaging as possible so as to lower your cost and minimize waste. If you would like, gift packaging, insurance, or delivery confirmation may be added for an additional charge. I currently ship orders to the US and Canada.
Additional policies and FAQs
I very much appreciate positive feedback when you receive your order! Please let me know through private message if you are unhappy in any way before leaving negative feedback and I will try my best to fix any problems.

I strive to design and create safe, quality items. All of my items are made with non-toxic glue, in a smoke-free, pet-free studio.

~~ƸӜƷ~~Small print: Baby shoes are not made for walkers. Please supervise children with any shoes, hair items, accessories, toys, etc. :) Customer acknowledges that many hair items have very tiny pieces that may end up in baby's mouth and torn off. I do my best to fasten things as well as possible (some things are unable to be sewn on...please ask before you order if you have questions!), but babies surprise us with their power sometimes! :) ~~ƸӜƷ~~
