System Update: Hair Accessory Organizer

Dec 3

in january of this year, i shared a very simple hair accessory organizer created for the little girl in our life….

if you’d like to see how i assembled this with a very simple organizer and command hook, read about it here.

the system is still working very well – love it. easy to access and in close proximity to where we get her dressed. the 2-sided hanging accessory holder has been a great place to stow away her dress up jewelry too…

which i realize is seriously lacking. maybe Santa can plan on bringing her more dress up clothing and jewelry.

while the system has been working well for us, there were some tweaks that recently came to mind to make it that much more perfect.

and since this project was one of the first here on the blog, it’s been buried away where new (read = all of you!) readers may have missed it.

aaaaand it was time to update her hair accessory supply.

anyone with a daughter can understand the wide array of hair types out there. we have a daughter with very thin, wispy hair…hair that is still growing in on various parts of her head. she had the baby mullet going on well into toddlerhood and only now, at almost age 3, has hair that is willing to be clipped back in one fell swoop. even then, however, her hair falls out of any accessory with very little movement on her part.  so, we are always on the search for the perfect hair accessory that will keep her hair out of her face – securely and for a long period of time.

each time i go to a children’s clothing store, i scour the hair accessory section to see if we can find something new and different. last week, i found a few new clips at target that seem pretty tight/secure and worth trying. along with a few pretty bow clips from a local children’s boutique…

i went through the hair accessory organizer first to remove what i know isn’t working for us. those will be donated….

the remaining clips were sorted by type and color…

i added all of the bow / alligator clips, large rubber bands and headbands to the bottom portion of the organizer first…

the remaining smaller clips were sorted by color and added to the top portion….

i have the tee-niny plastic rubber bands sorted in a pill organizer…

but the pill organizer wasn’t fitting well in the small pockets of this organizer, so i quickly fixed that. how? i snipped the threading out of one side of the top row…

making a larger pocket…

now it slides in perfectly…

i did the same thing on the bottom row of the organizer…

now, her brush fits inside as well!…

now we are back in hair-doing business…

and dress-up business…

the updated hair accessory organizer…
small items like this are tough to organize, so if you are looking for a system to corral your child’s hair accessories – please try this one! super easy to put together and simple to stay on top of!

have a great monday!

    The pill box idea for the little rubber bands is great. Thanks for the tip!

    I have had good luck with shelf liner for my daughter's fine hair. The shelf liner is that grid material, you just glue a small section onto the clip.
