How to Organize Little Girls Hair Accessories: 20 Perfect Hacks

Little girls love hair accessories almost as much as moms love clean bathrooms. But with young daughters come big accessory messes.

Organizing their hair accessories allows you or your daughter to find them quickly and keep the bathroom or bedroom clean.

It teaches girls independence and responsibility as they learn to keep their accessories organized and the bathroom clutter-free.

It also allows them to get ready by themselves when they can see what they have and where to find it. 

If you are struggling to keep your daughter’s hair accessories organized, or want more creative ways to store them, read on to find 20 ideas on how to organize a little girl’s hair accessories.

How Should Girls Store Their Hair Accessories?

You may organize your girls’ accessories differently than someone else, but no matter the way you do it, there are some practices to follow to make things easier and keep things cleaner.

  • Easy to See. Easily being able to see all of the hair accessories allows for a faster morning and a cleaner bathroom. If your daughter can’t find the scrunchie she wants, bows will be flying, clips will be scattered, and the bathroom will be messier than ever. 
  • Central Location. Keeping hair accessories in or near the bathroom provides easy access while fixing hair. You don’t want to search around the house for a hair accessory when it can be right at your fingertips. 
  • Clear Location. If kept in one spot, a child can easily return a hair accessory. This way they aren’t confused about where the product goes, and there is less chance of it getting lost. They also should have designated “homes”, so your daughter knows where each of them belongs. If you find a hair accessory out of place, you can say “Oh, this bow needs to find its home!” and she will know exactly where it goes.
  • Separated. Keeping accessories separated helps protect the products so they don’t get tangled or damaged. And nothing is more frustrating than when you’re in a rush and the accessory you want is tangled with four others. Who has the time to sit and untangle? 

4 Different Ways to Organize Little Girl Hair Accessories

There are many different ways to organize a little girl’s hair accessories. What works for one person may not work for another. Find what works best for you and your daughter. Here are 4 different options to consider:

  • Color. Sorting by color allows for an easy way to match outfits, a faster way to find a specific accessory (ex: a girls’ favorite hair bow), and it is more aesthetically pleasing, rather than having a bucket full of colors. It also helps younger children learn their colors and practice sorting them by colors. 
  • Type. Organize by the type of hair accessories. Put all the scrunchies together, the bows in a separate container, and the elastics somewhere else. This allows for children to pick which type of accessory they want and with easy access. Rather than looking through a basket of accessories, they can look in a specific place for the bow they want. 
  • Child. If you have more than one daughter, you can separate their hair accessories. This works well if you have kids of different ages or girls who like keeping their things separate. Siblings share a lot as is, separate their accessories to let them have their own belongings. 
  • Size. Keep larger-sized items together, and smaller accessories together. This will allow your daughter to pick what size she wants with the outfit she has on. If she needs a smaller clip to keep her hair back, she can easily find it. Or if she wants to stand out a little more with a big bow, she knows right where to look.

Now that we’ve talked about strategies for organizing your little girls’ hair accessories, let’s get to the products that will make it easier.

Organizing Scrunchies

Inside the tower, is extra storage space for clips, bows, or other accessories you just don’t have a place for. The tower also makes for easy on-the-go access. 
  • Tree Stand. Rather than taking all of the scrunchies off the tower to get to the one you want at the bottom; the tree stand provides six different branches for multiple scrunchies. Sort them by color, material, or your favorites. It also provides simple, but trendy decor for any bathroom or bedroom. 
  • 3 Tier Holder. Perfect for a girl with lots of scrunchies and bracelets, the 3-tier stand keeps everything together with a nice display of all your scrunchies.

  • Oatmeal Box. For all my DIY people out there, this allows for a fun craft activity with your daughter – while creating a way to store her headbands. Take a cylinder oatmeal box, and cover it with fabric, for quick and easy headband storage.  

Organizing Clips
