If you have little girls in your family, you will know how difficult it is to store hair clips and hair bands. We have tried all sorts of storage options but the usual boxes and bowls just mean that everything gets lost in the bottom or spills out over the edge. When The Hair Helper got in touch, I went for a quick browse on their website, and knew straight away this was going to be the answer to all our problems.
The idea behind the Hair Helper is so simple. It’s a plastic frame, and you can choose 3 different coloured ribbons from the wide range on the site to create your own personalised hair accessory holder. You can even add letters if you choose, so you could have a child’s name across the top. Assembling the Hair Helper is really easy – you just loop the ribbons through the slits in the frame and secure with the velcro tabs at the back.
In my mind, there are 2 ways to use the Hair Helper. If your daughter only has hair clips, you can hang the holder up and simply use the ribbons to store hair clips. Once pulled taut, these ribbons are very supportive and will easily hold a full line of hair clips with ease. The fact there is a lot of hand room around the frame and ribbons makes it easy for little ones to remove the clips too.
If you have a little girl who is also partial to a headband, there are hooks at the base of the frame which you can use to store those too. I have found in the past that headbands stored in boxes always end up broke, so this is a real plus point for me. The headbands simply slide over the plastic hooks, which are strong enough to hold as many as you can fit on, and to remove them you just slide them off!
There is even a plastic hook included with the Hair Helper which you can attach to the side of the frame to store a hairbrush – sadly Gemma’s hairbrush is too wide for this loop, so we are going to get her a slimmer one to put in there – it is just so useful in the mornings to have everything to hand so Gemma can select her hair accessories easily before school.
Would I recommend the Hair Helper? I absolutely would. It’s made a real difference to us in terms of storage – not only are all the clips and headbands easier for Gemma to find, it also looks so much neater and prettier than a box or bowl with everything falling out. A total winner for me, and something that is well worth investing in if you have little girls!
