I’m all about finding ways to organize my home for free by repurposing items I already have. So, when my daughter’s collection of ponytail holders, hair clips, and headbands got out of control, I found items in my stash of random containers to organize everything.
Ready to take control of all those hair accessories around the house? Here are five simple hair accessory organization ideas you can use right now.
1. Organize Hair Clips With a Memo Board
This easy memo board hack was my first attempt to organize hair clips for my little girl before her collection exploded. Luckily, I already had one in storage so this project was free for me.
To make a DIY hair clip organizer, all you need is:
Simply loop the ribbon through the mounting hook on the back of the memo board, tie it in a bow, and hang it on a wall or door with a Command Hook. Easy peasy!
2. Store Hair Brushes and More in Glass Vases
Short glass vases are great for organizing hair elastics, clips, and brushes (and a random bouncy ball!) because kids can easily see what’s inside. You can take it one step further by labeling the vases and decorating them with washi tape.
3. Re-purpose a Ring Holder for Hair Elastics
Ring holders make great storage for hair elastics! I found this one on clearance at Target a while back (it’s no longer for sale), but a similar style will work well to organize stray ponytail holders. We keep one in the kids’ bathroom and another downstairs in our family command center.
4. Use Dollar Store Baskets in Drawers
Cheap plastic baskets from the dollar store are perfect to organize hair elastics, bobby pins, and more (like nail polish!) in the bathroom. Since the baskets are low-profile, they easily fit in vanity drawers.
5. Keep Brushes and Combs Tidy in a Magazine Holder
My hairbrushes and combs got lost in the big bottom drawer of my bathroom vanity before I stashed them in this plastic magazine holder from the dollar store (these are similar). It fits perfectly in the drawer, but would also work well tucked in the under-sink cabinet.
