ETA: It's similar to this http://www.stacksandstacks.com/small...rce=googlebase
When they were little I found some great hanging holders that have a coat hanger at the top and hang on hooks on the back of their bedroom doors, the type that have pockets. Each holder has 6 pockets. I bought 2 for each of my girls, so they had 2 hooks each on the back of their doors. The ones we have have see through pockets, so you can see quite easily which clip etc is in which pocket.
Similar to this pic except ours do not hang over the door and have less pockets.

DD has a couple of baskets in different sizes that she keeps in a drawer in the bathroom. One holds all her hair bands, a smaller one holds bobby pins and clips etc. I like the way the baskets are open for ease of access, but they are tucked away in a drawer so they aren't in view.
We use a child's gardening caddy from the garden section of Target. It is similar to this, garden tools removed of course. The big middle section is where we keep the spray bottle, hair spray, hair brush, comb, and hard headbands. We divide the little hair pretties up amongst the other pockets. There is even room for a tube of sunscreen!
1. for hair bands, scrungies, etc --- she painted and decorated one of those things that looks like a bunch of chopsticks in a base used to dry plastic bags for reuse. The bands go on the sticks loosely.
2. for clips, barrettes, etc --- she took a pretty picture frame, covered the cardboard back with pretty fabric, and strung sturdy fat ribbons across in horizontal rows. The clips get attached to the ribbons in pairs and look beautiful, are easy to find.

So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!

pony tail holders - stand-up paper towel holder like this http://www.google.com/products/catal...CC8Q8wIwAzgA#p or something less involved. i used to have a little bottle dryer thing from ikea that i stood my finger puppets on, that could work too.
headbands & brushes - can of some sort wrapped in fabric or decoupaged w/ paper - headbands go around it, brushes go inside it.
these can all be put on (or hanging from in the case of the ribbon) a little wooden shelf attached to the wall.
I made one for my friend who has heaps of hairtoys. I made the divided pocket slant downwards (in a wave pattern, actually) so some of the pockets were shorter than others. And I made some of the divisions wider than others. So she had some tall, skinny pockets for hairsticks, a short, fat pocket for her wide-toothed comb, etc. I also added a strap over which to thread bobby pins; and the whole thing rolled up and tied with ties, and I put a wee pocket on the outside as well.
I think I might make another one for me to take to Disneyland next year; maybe a bit bigger so I can fit my brush in there as well. You could add press-studs on one of the fatter pockets to close it, to keep elastics safe.
I've also considered doing a wall-hangy thing for the bathroom, with similar pockets and straps and such. Maybe I could combine the two - no reason the holder wouldn't hang up as well as roll up!

I like to keep hair elastics on a ring that can open and close. You can see all of the elastics (their colour and size) and you just have to rotate the spot where the ring opens to the location of the elastic you want.
I found that putting the elastics over something like a bottle or a tube stretched the smaller ones, and it was a pain to get them off if you wanted one that wasn't close to either end.
I hate digging in baskets, especially if I'm looking for two barrettes that match.
For barrettes and clips hanging up some long ribbons and clipping the barrettes and things onto them was what worked for us too. Then you can see all of the clips at once.
