My cute bathroom is wee and severely lacking in under-sink storage, so I keep hair appliances and brushes in my bedroom, in a slide-under-the-bed storage container from Ikea. They’re a little out of the way there, but I rarely use hot styling tools these days because I have to choose between A/C power and blowdryer power — they run off the same circuit in my old-building apartment, and can’t do so together. Plus, the only outlet in my little bathroom is a single, two-prong type built into a light fixture over my pedestal sink.
But if my place had more modern wiring, accessible outlets and wall space, I’d want something like this Style & Go Hair Care Valet cabinet ($169 USd).
Baskets under the sink or stand-alone drawer units work as organizers, too, as do these caddies from Solutions (left and lower right) and Home Depot. But I like the shut-the-door aspect of a cabinet, as well as built-in housing for a power bar and cords. I also dig the idea of everything being at exactly the height I need to use then put away. Tidy and convenient.
Designed by inventor Marcy McKenna, the Style & Go Hair Care Valet cabinet is sold on HSN in the US. According to the website, they don’t ship north of the border.
Has anyone seen anything like this in Canada? What do you use to keep your hair appliances accessible and neat?
