How to Make a Hair Dryer Holder

Every bathroom should really have a hair dryer holder. Hair dryers should not be left to sit on the bathroom sink, especially if they are plugged in. If a holder was not included when you bought your hair dryer, there is a simple solution, you can do to make your own holder. Your hair dryer will hang neatly within reach but out of the way.

  1. 1

    Measure the width of the part of your hair dryer that can slide it into a holder. On some hair dryers, the handle is best, while other hair dryers have a straight section along the blower part that would be suitable. Write the measurement down so you can take it with you to a hardware store.

  2. 2

    Take the measurement to the counter at the hardware store, and ask for help finding a spring clip that will fit. When you look at their assortment of clips, make sure you get one that is rubber coated.

  3. 3

    Find the stud in the wall in the area where you would like to mount your spring clip. You can use a stud finder or a long thin nail that you poke in every few inches until you hit wood. Lay the spring clip against the wall and mark the screw holes with a pencil. Remove the clip from the wall and drill pilot holes for the clip.

  4. 4

    Anchor the clip to the wall with the included screws if they are long enough to go into the stud. If little screws were packed with the spring clip, then use 2-inch-long screws, which will provide enough support the pushing and pulling that occurs when the hair dryer is removed and replaced.

  5. 5

    Open the spring clip, and slide your hair dryer into the clip. It should fit snugly and tightly, out of the way of your sink counter and ready to be used.
