15 Simple Ways to Organize Your Hair Accessories

15 Simple Ways to Organize Your Hair Accessories

15-simple-ways-to-organize-your-hair-accessories-today

We have all been there.  It’s 20 minutes before you need to walk out the door, and NO ONE can find a single hair tie, headband or matching hair accessory?  With three long haired ladies in our house, there has ALWAYS been an influx of hair accessories.

Beautiful accessories.  Broken accessories.  Missing accessories.  And even “someday” accessories.  Having so many accessories was not only overwhelming, it was unmanageable.  I am embarrassed to say, that for many, many years we did NOT have a reasonable storage solution for our accessories.  Hence the broken and missing part.  In my defense, we didn’t have internet or a computer, let alone Pinterest, but at some point I said “Enough is Enough” and found pretty, creative ways to store our accessories.  You can find more about those here.

NOW, we have this amazing thing called Pinterest, where you can find oodles and oodles of DIY, zero budget hair accessory organizing ideas with a variety of designs and patterns.  I gathered 15 of my favorites here, today, in hopes of inspiring YOU to organize your hair accessories, so that you don’t have the stress and tears we did over broken and missing hair accessories.

Headbands

1.  Transform an oatmeal can or hot chocolate container and use the inside to store loose items such combs, brushes, headwraps and more.  Find the complete tutorial HERE.Hot Chocolate Headband Organizer

2.  Add hooks to the bottom of a picture frame or bulletin board.  This works great for cloth headbands and jewelry as well.  Find the complete step-by-step tutorial here.

4.  Don’t have enough counter space to have an organizer on the counter?  GO vertical with this idea.  Complete tutorial and detailed photos can be found at Baubles n’ Babbles.  I am thinking of doing it with our hot chocolate container organizers from above.

5.  Add chicken wire or ribbon to an old frame.  This way YOU control the size, design and number of items you can keep.  A step-by-step tutorial can be found here.

6.  Change up a lamp shade.  I absolutely LOVE this idea from Bethany at PinkandGlink.  Photo and tutorial can be found here.

7.  Use a belt or ribbon.  It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s FREE.

8.  Purchase small clear pocket organizer for less than $10.  They are often double sided and have a variety of pocket sizes.  BONUS:  It hangs in a closet, as well as on a door or wall.

9.  Hanging cloth organizer with ribbon added.  You can even make it dual purposed and organize all your supplies in one place.  Amanda at Heartland Happy shares this photo and clear step-by-step tutorial here.

    Thanks for including me in this round-up. I found so many good ideas! I LOVE the lampshade idea and I need to make at least one of the ponytail holders. Those things get everywhere! I’ll share this link on my social media!

    I love your ribbon headband organizer and I believe we are going to use your tutorial to create one we do our bathroom makeover next year so we will definitely be linking to you again. Just wish we had room for the lamp shade one too. It IS absolutely adorable.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    These are great. Number 8 is my favorite. I already use #16. #12 is a great idea. I will certainly start using that. Thanks.
