I like that these canvas makeup bags have different colored zippers. The colors help distinguish between each bag’s contents without forcing a label on the bag. Put hair clips and barrettes in one, hair ties in another, scrunchies in a third, then headbands in the fourth. Toss all your hair accessory bags in a bathroom drawer for easy access.

DIY and Upcycled Hair Accessory Organizers

If a dedicated storage solution isn’t in the budget right now, don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to get creative and upcycle objects you already have in your home for free. Here are a few clever ideas for DIY hair accessory organization.

Upcycled TicTac or Matchbox for Bobby Pins

Does anyone still carry around TicTacs? If you have an old TicTac container, you can easily repurpose it for bobby pin storage. I used to do this when I was a dancer in high school and was constantly pinning my hair into a bun. It works perfectly!

Upcycled Paper Towel or Toilet Paper Roll

Keep your hair ties contained by stretching them around a toilet paper roll. It doesn’t get much simpler than this!

Upcycled Lidded Tins

Upcycle cans and other tins to repurpose as hair accessory organizing solutions. This particular example shows how you can create a cute lid for decorated tin cans, but you can simply clean out your can, coat it with some paint, and put it in a drawer to start organizing.

Hikidashi Boxes

Hikidashi boxes can take many forms – but the most basic version is an upcycled cardboard box. Save boxes from product purchases and repurpose them as drawer organizers. You can cover them in matching contact paper, paint, wrapping paper, or leave them as is. 

Rods and Clips

This would be a more advanced DIY (you can purchase a completed version of this project on Etsy). Even so, using inexpensive craft supplies and a bit of skill, you can create your own version of the organizer you see above.


No matter how you organize your hair accessories, I hope your new system saves you time and brings you a sense of calm in the morning!
