Attempting Aloha: {Prep} {Primp } {Pretty} - How We Organize Hair Schtuff

{Prep} {Primp } {Pretty} - How We Organize Hair Schtuff

 Aloha Friends,

Sorry if this looks like duplicate posts! I originally intended to include this stuff in the pleated basket liner tutorial, but it was getting way too long, so I thought I'd share hair pretties in their own separate post!

With three girls (plus mommy), hair supplies are abundant. Ours, however, were getting a little unruly... Ok, truthfully, I had them all shoved in an old cardboard baby wipes box, and I'd curse almost every morning as I rummaged through it to find specific items (*crap* and *shasta* are curse words for me in case you're wondering).

So when I had some left-over hardware cloth from my Ballard-inspired wire wall baskets, I decided to make a few more that would fit some of our hair schtuff.

HERE is a tutorial for the wire baskets.
HERE is a tutorial for the pleated basket liners.

I made three of the little lovelies, tied a jute bow at the top, and made a few labels. I was going to go with "Hair Crap 1", "Hair Crap 2", and "Hair Crap 3", but the linguist in me wanted something that rolled off the tongue. ;)

So I went with {Prep} - Sprays, gels, detanglers, defrizzers, and water bottle.

{Primp} - Brushes, combs, and clips that hold hair up while...well...primping.

(That pic looks better if you cross your eyes at it.)  ;)

And last but not least - {Pretty} - Headbands, elastics, bobby pins, and plain ribbons.

Of course, there wasn't enough room for ALL our pretties...luckily this was the one area I had already organized and given a home.


MUCH better than cardboard wipes box!

 And just in case you decide to sort through your own pretties:

Hi Charlie! I've been over here a while back, but just found you at UCreate and wanted to say hi again. These baskets are SO CUTE. I am looking for toy storage ideas for my playroom this weekend, and these might make the cut;)

Hey i stumbled across your blog/ super cute. Can i ask a super random question?? my husband is deployed right now. we want to move to hawaii when he gets back this nov. we have no kids and nothing tying us down so we figured it would be a perfect time. did you say the switch was pretty easy? did you send your car over or buy one, how did you go about finding a house? so on. we only want to go very short term. so we would prob rent. but i will take any advice i can get from people who decided to move there.. my email is luckyou7@hotmail.com thank you so much.
