Dear Mummy, gone are the days of struggling to find hair bobbles in the midst of the school run. No more hair clips stashed at the bottom of your bag, down the sofa, in my toy box, you get the idea! You see we’ve found something that is going to change your life and mine!
It’s called the Hair Helper and it is a great way to organise all your hair accessories, a bit like a jewellery box it displays all my crowning glory embellishments in one place. On my wall. You see my mummy is fed up losing meters of hair ribbons and clips which seemed to go missing in our house. A bit like the missing sock from the laundry basket we never know where they have gone and have lost lots of money on hair accessories over the years. Not anymore!
Without all the hair bands and clips on it the Hair Helper looks a bit odd but it comes to life as soon as you populate it with hair accessories. Ours looks like a rainbow spectrum of colour and we love how it looks with everything on. In the box is a link to the YouTube demonstration to see it in action.
You can add stickers to the frame to personalise the product but my folks and I agree we much prefer it plain. When ordering off the website it’s nice that you can select your ribbon, add stickers (if you want) and frame choices. The Hair Helper starts from £17.99 and you can tailor it to your preference. They have a pink version and white version of the frame and it would be nice if they incorporated some other colours like red or black for more modern monochrome bedrooms and interiors in the future but as the ribbon’s are detachable there’s nothing stopping me and mummy getting creative with acrylic paint and glitter!
We opted for white as it could be put anywhere in our house, however we’d be interested to see whether the white plastic would discolour to yellow/cream in time. We chose pink and turquoise ribbons as they go with my bedroom and my mummy’s room. We like that you can get gingham and dotty ribbon styles too.
It’s really lightweight even with the hair bobbles on and sits flush to the wall, until you add bulky hairbands, so we opted to only put a few on. We like that you can also add a hairbrush clip to the side of the frame to keep my brush nearby (this is also included in the box with fixtures). Overall we’re really happy with this product and love the idea. Excited to see how they move forward with the initial design and there’s so much more scope for an accessories holder like this. It has real potential to be a useful gift.
So what do you think of the Hair Helper? I think it’s genius and such a simple idea. It would be lovely if they expanded the materials and went a bit more upmarket with better finishes like wood or marble instead of plastic, then it would be stylish as well as practical. Still, it would make a great Christmas present this year, especially if filled with hair accessories!
