Best Hair Inspiration on Instagram

7 Instagram Accounts to Follow If You're Stuck in a Hair Rut

Are you bored with your everyday hairstyle? Well, Allure recommends these Instagram accounts to get endless styling inspiration delivered straight to your feed.

If you're tired of scrolling through an endless loop of the same ten repinned images on Pinterest (seriously — I think it's almost worse than the commercials on Hulu) in search of hair inspiration, grab your phone, go to Instagram, and follow these hair wizards immediately. Then do a little dance, because congratulations, you just had your last ever I'm-so-tired-of-my-hair day.

Who it is: Christina Butcher, the curly-haired blogger behind
What to expect: Gorgeous updos, loose chignons, boho braids, and frame-by-frame how-tos, all expertly lit and cropped to make the rest of your feed look like a hot mess. Plus, proof that you can do something with curly hair other than that 24/7 topknot.


Who it is: The Stevie English Hair salon in Australia
What to expect: Movie-worthy before-and-after hair makeovers that save you from having to watch She's All That and The Princess Diaries 20 times in a row. Think: drab blondes dyed fuchsia, scraggly lobs cut into sexy angled bobs, and bangs, bangs, bangs.

Who it is: Shir Ben-Zikry and Sophie Rose, two braid-loving teens
What to expect: Straight-up braid porn, without any annoying product ads or inspirational memes to slow you down. Be prepared to get lost in a sea of cool-girl fishtails.

Who it is: Tangela Jones, a blogger and the founder of
What to expect: All the best hair inspo from the natural-hair community, like dyed Bantu knots and frizz-free wash-and-gos, collected and regrammed for complete curl envy.

Who it is: Kayley Melissa, a hair and beauty vlogger
What to expect: Hair ideas you can actually see yourself wearing—or better yet, attempting—with links to easy-to-follow YouTube tutorials.

Who it is: Sarah Potempa, a celebrity hairstylist who works with Aussie
What to expect: Behind-the-scenes pics of styles Potempa does for photo shoots, as well as a slew of insanely intricate braids for her #365daysofbraids challenge that will make your own plaits look like child's play. (Seriously—she recently braided the word "JETS" into someone's hair.)

Who it is: Steph Brinkerhoff, a hair and makeup artist in Utah
What to expect: Hundreds of soft, beautiful styles. Think Southern belle crossed with Harlequin romance, but in a good way. Chances are, though, you already have a dozen of Brinkerhoff's updos pinned to that secret wedding board. Don't worry; we won't tell a soul.
