I was tired of having all of our hair rubber bands making a mess in the bathroom. To remedy this situation I found two caribbeaner clips to contain them. I separated out the small and large rubber bands, then put them onto the clips. Now we can find the right size and color when we are getting ready, without digging around and making a mess.

Here is a quick and easy way to organize hair clips. Take a length of ribbon, fold one end over to create a loop, and safety pin it in place. Install an adhesive hook where you want to hang your hair clips, then hang up the ribbon by the loop. Now simply clip your hair clips to it, and "Walla!" you have the perfect place to display and store your clips!
Between my daughter and I, we had a lot of hair accessories. I bought a small three-drawer organizer to put everything in. I put rubberbands and bobby pins in a drawer, headbands in another, and barrettes/clips in the third drawer. It makes it easy to find what we are looking for and keeps things from getting tangled together.
I use paper towel tubes and slip them on to the tube. When I want a certain color, they slip right off of each other, not disturbing the ones left on the tube. They sit in drawers easy. I have three of them going right now.
Take apart a wire hanger. Bend it with pliers into the shape of a head making loops on the side for eyes. Tie the wire together with a few pieces of yarn. Now unravel some yarn. You can wrap yarn around two chairs or someones hands. Cut the yarn once you get the amount you want, then cut the yarn in half. Tie it in the middle with a piece of yarn. Braid both sides, tie end with yarn or ribbons.attach the (hair) to the wire face with pieces of yarn. Now it is ready for clips and hairbows.

This is a dual purpose tip. If you are someone who has to wear or likes to wear wigs or even other types of hair accessories that can be hung, I have the perfect time and space saving solution. The over the door shoe racks are awesome. You can hang one of each wig on the hook a shoe hands on.
Cover Pringles can with contact paper or wrapping paper that would match your bedroom or bathroom. We use one as a hair scrunchy holder and store hair clips, etc. inside.
Those clear plastic Crisco stick shortening tubs make dandy drawer dividers in bathrooms and girl's dresser drawers. They make it really easy to find what you are looking for.
This is a guide about storing bobby pins. Bobby pins seem to often end up all over the bathroom and other areas of the house.

I am looking for tips on organizing hair bands and accessories.
Get a few "cup hooks" for $1 or so at Walmart and a wooden dowel from the craft section that will fit snuggly into the cup hook. Thread accessories onto dowel and slide into cup hooks.
I attached this to the sides of my desk ( had a corner desk ) and threaded necklaces on one, hair ties on the other. It worked great ( until my nephew pulled out the dowel and all fell on floor lol ).
Hair accessories. I have purchased plastic bins. Some plastic bins have several sections in them, other plastic bins are larger, and hold big bows.
Toilet paper rolls! I used 2 for all my daughters hairbands... it is not the most attractive thing initially but once all the bands are on it really looks quite nice. It fits in her drawer neatly, and is easy to maintain.
I found a ring at Walmart (looks like a bracelet, but it has an overlapping opening) in the hair accessories. I hang it in my bathroom and all the hair elastics get stored on the ring, instead of being all around the house. It also makes it easy to recognize which ones are stretched out.
I have a pretty plastic basket that I use. I clip jaw clips and such around the edges and hang hard plastic headbands over the edges, or lay them in the bottom of the basket. I put all my scrunchies, elastics, hair clips (the ones that are like quilters clips), barettes, fabric headbands etc. in seperate ziplocs by category and place the baggies in the basket. I even put my brushes, combs and hair-trimming scissors in the basket as well. Hope this helps! :)
I bought some gum that had a big circular container. I think it had like 60 pieces. Anyways I put my hair ties in that then I went to the dollar tree, and they have those hang up organizers kind of like a mini shoe organizer. I hung that up in my bathroom and hung all of my hair accessories in that.
I received one of those shelves that are used over the back of your kitchen sink from freecycle. I decided to use it in my bathroom instead. It has drawers in it, so I have elastics in one, barettes in another, etc. It really works out well.
I love the unused shower curtain rings, and use them for so many things. For this, I submitted a photo, and you can hang them just about anywhere. You can put them in a drawer and seperate by color or size, etc.
These little gems can be used for more than shower curtains, so please enjoy my submission from last year.
I bought one of those 3 tiered hanging vegetable baskets at the dollar store. You know the ones. There is a little one at the top, then a medium sized one in the middle, and a large one on the bottom. It works like a charm and I can put everything in it from soaps to brushes to hair ties etc. You can see what you have and everything is right there at your fingertips!
