One of my friends calls hair accessories and hair bows “hair pretties” so that is how I titled the post.

A recent client has three daughters and they have LOTS of hair accessories. They had tried to find a way to organize the cabinet where they kept these things but nothing ever worked and the cabinet would always end up a mess with all the hair pretties thrown in.

Steps to Organize Hair Pretties

Here is the before picture of the cabinet under the girls’ bathroom sink.

First, we sorted through all the hair accessories, bows, ribbons, clips, ponies, headbands, etc. This probably took the most time. They were all over the bedrooms and bathroom. The space under the sink was not being used efficiently so we decided to use it for all the hair accessories.

Then, we purged. We went back through each pile and got rid of styles they had out grown or no longer use.

The third step is to assign homes. We planned out where each type would “live.”

The fourth step is to set limits. Using the three drawer containers we created homes for each category. They fit nicely under the bathroom cabinet which was a bonus. Then we labeled the drawers for each category: ponies, head bands, ponies with decorations, clips, etc.

To make the bow holders we attached ribbon to a piece of Velcro at the top and bottom and then attached it to the inside of the cabinet door. The Velcro has adhesive on both sides so we didn’t even need glue. Then we clipped all the bows to the ribbon.

Finally, we set up a way to maintain this system. By setting limits using the drawers and the ribbon strips we create a natural maintenance signal. When the drawer gets full and won’t close or the ribbon cannot hold another bow it is time to purge in order to maintain the system.
