Help !!!Need some organization tips for Hair Accessories and Jewelry

Hi all, since Spring is around the corner (hopefully) I was trying to get a head start on some spring cleaning. I am having trouble trying to keep all my hair accessories and jewelry under control. They usually end up piled in a corner on the bathroom counter or on one of my dressers. I am looking for a creative way to store all my many hair accessories in an attractive and inexpensive way. I have hair clips in every size imaginable (large to super tiny) and tons of elastics, barrettes, bobby pins, foam rollers, combs, hair jewels, headbands.

And the second thing is storing jewlery. I have three jewelry boxes but I find that everything gets thrown in and is getting damaged. And how can you keep necklaces from getting tangled up together. I have found many for my necklaces tangle together or by itself and almost snapped some trying to untangle them.

If anyone has any ideas it would be very apprectiated.
Sorry for the long post and Thanks for your thoughts and ideas ahead of time.

I've made these 'things ' for my daughter and I to hold all our hair clips/ ties. Mine is a dolls straw hat ( from the dollar store) with lots of yarn braids about 1 foot long glued to the inside. This hangs on the wall as a decoration so all you see is the top of the hat with the 'hair' hanging down. The hat is decorated to match my room so it fits in. My dd's is a round peice of wood painted like a face with braided yarn ponytails at the side, this also hangs on the wall.
On each braid is where you clip your hair things.
I find these keeps them all nice and neat and you can see them all to choose what you want.
To keep my necklaces from tangling I use a plastic coat hanger, which I have wrapped in lace, just to look a little nicer, hanging on my closet wall. The necklaces hang on the bottom part they don't get moved around again you can see what you are looking for and no tangles.
Hope this is of some help

Hi.. *s*
Any kind of clip goes well on rope type things...and they stay out of the way... for jewelry they have special boxes just for necklaces...and those for rings and earrings and bracelets.....have you seen them? *s*

Ice cube trays! I've been collecting pretty rings, earrings, and necklaces for at least 50 years and have a ton of stuff. In desperation I bought a stack of ice cube trays in a color that coordinates with my bedroom. Put them side by side in a drawer and put on jewelry item in each "cube" You can stack the filled trays just like you would in the freezer. Works great -- keeps everything clean and tangle free, and when I'm looking for something all I have to do is lift a tray.

Love to all

My 2 daughters have hundreds of hair accessories! To keep them organized I covered a 3' board with velvet material and attached it to the wall with cup hooks. I screwed on rows of hooks across the board to hang scrunchies, headbands, beaded hair ties and such. At the very bottom I screwed in a row of hooks and tied long strips of wide ribbon from this. On the ribbons I attach barrettes and clips. I keep all plain hair elastic in a basket. This has worked very well for me- I can instantly pick out what goes with their outfits in the morning since each row and each ribbon is color co-ordinated.
For all their necklaces and bracelets I use wooden coffee cup "trees" and set them on their dressers. I don't know what to do with earrings yet since they just recently got their ears pierced!

Get yourself a tackle box! It is perfect for holding small clips. Have your child decorate it. Easy to move from mirror to mirror!

I keep my hair bows in what looks like a shoe bag, smaller, and made out of lace. I found it in a thrift shop. There is a picture above my dresser with little cup hooks at the bottom. I hang my hair bow bag on there. For my bobby pins, I keep them in a Whitman's Chocolate box, the one that holds 4 pieces. I keep it on the computer desk where I set my hair nightly before going to bed. The jewelry boxes, I just pile two on top of each other. I have pins in one, earrings in another, etc.

I keep my necklaces and bracelets on tie or belt holders. They hold quite a few. I bought a plastic holder for nails and screws and that kind of stuff and use it for earrings and odd pieces of jewlery. It has about 15 drawers in it. Also bought a craft organizer. It has about 15 sections in it. I find I wear the same pieces over and over again, but it is nice to be able to find a special piece.

I stuck push pins in the wall in a row for the necklaces. I can see them all at once and it is easy to choose.

Towels. I have purchased pretty towels or decorated plain ones to match mine and my daughters rooms (and my collection has now extended into my craft room) I use paper clips for each item and open the paper clip half way (a U shape on each end) and poke one side through the towel and leave the other side hanging down. Place the jewelry or hair item on the bottom half of the clip. It works for every type of item you have and you can place the rings across the top, earrings and pins will poke right into the towel, bracelets hang in the middle and necklaces hang across the bottom on a row of paper clips. On another towel, you can put hair clips across the top and middle and the hair bands or scrunchies can hang on clips closer to the bottom where they can hang longer.

I have used every type of jewelry box, accessory box and hair clip container ever made and this idea works best for me and you can always see exactly what you have and the necklaces never tangle this way!
