I wish now, that I had gotten a giant ass bow for her when she was a newborn but I didn't. And then she didn't grow hair for nearly 2 years. Bless her heart.
She's going on 4 now and has gotten some hair accessories along the way. She calls them hair pretties.
Look at that sweet face. A mugshot, 16 years in the making
Before I just had them all lumped in a box in her dresser, but it was messy and unorganized. I wanted a way for TGD to see all her choices but in a way that wouldn't drive me nuts or require any work on my part. Lazy parenting FTFW.
So I made this hair accessories organizer aka hair pretty holder to hang in our bathroom.
All of her hair pretties are hanging out for her to see - flower clips or headband? the eternal question - and choose in the morning.
It was a simple thing to make too - just some foam board, fabric, ribbon and pegs. I did have to fiddle with the head band holders but after some more hot glue, they are now even and can hold several more head bands.
I decided to use 4 ribbons for hair clips. Then I added two loops that attach with velcro to hold her ponytail holders and then the two pegs for head bands. I attached it to our linen closet in our bathroom using command strips. I imagine when TGD gets a little older, I can hang this in her room.
For now they keep my bathroom and her room hair pretty clutter free.
