Barrettes and other hair accessories can begin taking over a bathroom or dresser top, and they can become unorganized very quickly. This makes it especially difficult to find certain ones. Try these creative ways to store barrettes and hair accessories, and never have trouble finding specific colors and favorite styles again.
Store Barrettes on Strips of Ribbon
It is easy to make a stylish yet practical holder to store and organize barrettes. It requires a plain round metal key ring and a length of wide ribbon. Simply thread the top of the ribbon through the key ring, and secure it tightly. Hang it on a wall hook, and fill it with clasped barrettes. They will be easy to store and view when looking for the perfect barrettes to coordinate with outfits and accessories.
Use Clear Plastic Jars to Hold Hair Elastics
Some people suggest using glass jars to store ponytail holders, small barrettes, and other hair accessories, but glass can brake, especially when little hands put pressure on the rims of the jars. Do not risk using glass in a bathroom to store hair barrettes and accessories. Opt for clear plastic containers instead. Use extra-large peanut butter jars and other plastic containers to store ponytail holders, barrettes, and other hair accessories. They can still be seen, and little hands will not get cut.
Place Hairbrushes and Combs in a Utensil Organizer
Instead of hiding hairbrushes and combs in a drawer, store them within easy reach in a rotating utensil organizer on the bathroom countertop. Store brushes with handles down, and arrange combs accordingly. Kids as well as adults will be able to find exactly what they need in a matter of seconds.
Keep Small Hair Accessories in an Ice Cube Tray
No other drawer organizer is cheaper and better for holding small hair accessories than a simple plastic ice cube tray. Place one or more ice cube trays in a bathroom drawer, and use them to store everything from hair elastics to tiny barrettes and clips.
Tuck them into a Shoe Organizer with Clear Pockets
Another one of the best ways to store barrettes and hair accessories is in a shoe organizer with clear pockets. Store them in lower pockets for kids to insure everything is easy to see and reach. Teach the kids to put the barrettes and hair accessories back when they are finished and everything will be easy to find.
