Ah, kirby grips. I love them, but I probably hate them even more. Although they can help jazz up an otherwise plain hairdo and instantly make your plaits prettier, their tendency to disappear at the speed of light is — and you'll probably agree with me here — quite irritating. Over the years, I've tried multiple times to think of a way to store them so that I would never lose them again, and I've finally cracked it thanks to Muji, the brand that every beauty-lover turns to for makeup storage.
On a recent trip to one of its stores, I came upon the Hairpin Case (£1.25), a small, clear container that seems to have been made with people like me in mind. It's sturdy and big enough to contain a lot of grips, and it will fit in even the smallest of my handbags. Thanks to this little trick, having to frantically search every corner of my house for my hair pins has become a thing of the past, and trust me when I say that it's the best £1.25 you'll ever spend.
