Hair tools are items that you likely use on a pretty regular basis. Because they’re items that are used so often, the way you store them is pretty crucial. Let’s face it…when we use things regularly we don’t want to spend a lot of time searching for them or pulling them out of a storage that’s complicated. Efficiency is key, especially when it comes down to getting your hair done in a timely manner in the morning. That being said, we don’t want to have our hair tools out all over our bathroom counter either. Fortunately, we’ve discovered some fun options for storing your hair tools to give you some inspiration.
Use Hooks in the Cabinet
If you style your hair in your bathroom, you probably want to maximize your counter space (and not have to look at your hair tools every time you’re not using them) but still be able to access the tools easily. One of our favorite options for storing your hair tools in your bathroom is to use hooks on the inside door of your cabinets. This allows you to store the tools in a way that’s organized and streamlined, and incredibly easy to get to. Not to mention, because they’re stored on hooks you won’t have to worry about the cords getting twisted every time you go to use the tools.
Upgrade a PVC Pipe
No, this doesn’t have anything to do with construction or plumbing, other than where you’ll need to go to purchase the actual pipe. If you’re someone who likes to have your hair tools on your counter top or vanity, using a PVC pipe is a really fun option for storing your hair tools. You’ll need to, of course, begin by getting that PVC pipe. Once you have the pipe, decide the color you want to paint it. Painting the pipe is going to give it that upgrade so it will no longer actually look like a PVC pipe. After painting the pipe your chosen color, you can simply place it on your bathroom counter, vanity, or wherever you get ready and store your hair tools with the tool part placed into the pipe and cords hanging down (or staying plugged in). This makes styling your hair easy and functional.
Utilize a Magazine File
Another common item you probably didn’t think was a fun option for storing your hair tools. The great part about magazine files is they’re available in a wide range of different colors, textures and prints so you’re able to find something that will go with the theme you store your tools in adding to the décor of everything. Another great attribute of this method is you don’t have to do anything other than actually purchase the magazine files and place them where you want to have your hair tools stores. Simply store the hair tools in the files with the tool facing down and voila!
