Magnetic strips are great for storing bobby pins
Bobby pins have a tendency of disappearing from a dresser, much like socks in a dryer. Despite your best efforts, bobby pins seem destined to vanish into thin air, only to reappear hours later in the most incongruous of locations. You can prevent these hair clips from getting lost around the house by attaching them to a magnet. This will ensure that your bobby pins don’t go anywhere and that you can easily access them whenever you need them.
If you’re dying your hair, try Vaseline beforehand
No one wants to be the one whose at-home dye job backfires and leaves them with a splotchy new do. Applying vaseline to the skin surrounding your hairline (including your ears and neck) before dying might help you prevent this common hair mistake. Any stray hair dye will bead up on the vaseline instead of your skin, and can be easily washed away.
