Beautifully Organized: Bobby Pins and Hair Elastics

On most days, I tend to put my hair up in a pony tail, bun or chignon – any of you do the same? Here are a few ideas for keeping all those bobby pins and hair elastics organized and easily accessible:

Designate a specific spot for each type of hair accessory so that when you need an item you know where to find it.  (1) A small clear vanity jar can beautifully hold hair elastics.  (2) A paper clip holder works great for bobby pins since the magnetic ring makes them easy to dispense. (3) A larger container with dividers is great for separating out different sizes/types and for holding larger quantities.  (4) Magnetized boxes and magnetic strips (5) adhered to the inside of a cabinet door are perfect for small spaces.

Where do you like to store your hair accessories?  Share your ideas with us in the comments section!

    I feel like bobby pins are like socks. I don’t know where they end up! I havea bowl for them but I’m always running out of bobby pins. Love the ideas you have.thanks

    I put my bobby pins in a pandora charm box (took out the cushion, obviously!) I love ring boxes and this way I have an excuse to keep them on display!

    I put my Bobby pins in an empty tic tac container. Easy to dispense and small to store!

    I store mine in an egg cup, like the one found here:

    I store my bobby pins and elastics in one of these small containers from World Market… it works great! I like the egg cup idea too.

    You can put your bobby pins in a tic-tac, empty, box. Fit as many as you need inside, close lid, and go! Great for your purse so their not everywhere! (:
