Over the hecticness of life, our bathroom drawers often become a neglected place where hair ties, bobby pins, combs, hair brushes, and other hair essentials mingle to create a mess. Which (we admit) is not the look we're going for. Luckily, the new year is also the ideal time to throw out those bobby pins and other hair accessories that are old or no longer your style.

    Clear Containers

    It's always easier to know where things are when they're stored in transparent containers. Hair YouTuber Loepsie shows us how easily bobby pins (and other hair accessories) can be stored in clear acrylic containers in her "Hair Accessory Drawer | Organize With Me" video.

     

    Organize your hair accessory drawer with clear containers that let you stack and section like items so you can keep your bobby pins away from your hair elastics or separate your black bobby pins from your white bobby pins. Plus, because most acrylic containers can easily be moved and switched around to fit your organizational needs, it's easy to grab and go when moving from one hair styling station to the next.

     

    Bobi Organizing Tip: Bobby pins and hair ties organization needs to get messy before getting neat. When sorting your hair accessories into clear containers, don't be afraid to get rid of what you no longer want or use to make room for new items and your essentials.

    White Plastic Bins

    Very similar to the clear plastic containers, these white plastic bins are a great solution to store your bobby pins when your drawers are a bit weathered looking inside and you're like for a cleaner look. They are stackable and come in various shades and configurations to fit your hair drawer just right. We found these on Amazon and they are great for bathroom organization and all kinds of drawers in the house.

    Aesthetic Ceramic Jar

    Bobby pins storage looks different for different people. But if bobby pins are one of the only hair accessories you reach for, then dedicating a small, aesthetic ceramic jar to house them in is an easy, cute way to store them. Just like you use them in your kitchen to store sugar or coffee, a cute ceramic jar with a lid can store your bobby pins and keep them neatly tucked away from your other hair accessories. Plus, since it looks so cute, you can keep it out on your bathroom counter or vanity for easy access.

     

     

    Tiny Baskets

    For those who love the more natural, organic, bohemian vibes, there's nothing cuter than a tiny basket bowl you can keep your small accessories (like bobby pins) in. Find a woven or rope basket that's cute as a button and small enough to function as a bobby pins holder. You can keep it on your vanity, bathroom counter, medicine cabinet, or tucked away in a bathroom drawer that's easy to access when you need to grab a few for your updo.

     

    Because it's in a small, lightweight basket, you can grab it and go—carrying your color-matched bobby pins from the bathroom to your bedroom (or wherever else you get ready). This bobby pin organizing hack is also great for those on a budget since these small baskets can be found lying around your home or in thrift stores for less than a few dollars.

    Magnet Holders

    Strip magnets are an oldie but a goody way to organize your bobby pins. Because bobby pins are made of metal, a magnetic holder will keep your bobby pins locked to its surface and thus not scattered all over your bathroom drawers. You can find magnet strips from most major retailers, such as Amazon, or make your own. And because a lot of other small bathroom essentials are also metal (think hair clips and grooming scissors), strip magnets can be used to keep all of your things in their right places.

     

    We also love these magnet wrist wraps. They're perfect for hair styling because you can grab them right from your wrist and tuck them into the hair in the fastest way possible. This is the most efficient way to organize bobby pins when you're using a ton and it's no wonder it's adored and used by hair stylist everywhere.

    Old Candle Vessels

    Transforming small candle vessels into super cute bobby pin holders is one way to get some extra life out of that expensive candle you bought. Diptyque candles always make a gorgeous vessel, but you can use any empty candle jar you have on hand, as long as it's small enough to fit your bobby pins comfortably. Don't know how to clean out the leftover wax? This article gives an easy candle upcycling how-to.

    Egg Cups

We just love multi-functional home finds. These mighty must-have beauty tools certainly deserve to be displayed beautifully on a pedestal on top of your vanity.
