10 Instagrams to Follow for Hair Inspiration

Remember when I posted about my hair wrap obsession? Then you know I love getting hair inspiration off instagram and Pinterest. I follow so many inspirational women to help me along with my journey! Whether it’s letting it all down or having it all done up, there are way too many hairstyles I like out there to count. That’s why I’m officially putting it all in one spot – here on my site!

1. @honeyscurls

Honeys Curls Natural Hair

Courtany of @honeyscurls has some drop dead gorgeous natural curls! I peruse her feed when I need a reminder of what a little patience and hair know-how will do! She posts natural hair tips for those interested.

2. @shinestruck

Shinestruck Natural Hair

Youtube hair and beauty guru Shinestruck never ceases to amaze. Head to her instagram you’re not sure what ‘do you’re coveting at the moment and simply want to be inspired – there’s a huge variety!

3. @amberfillerup

Barefoot Blonde Braid

If you’re not already following her blog Barefoot Blonde, chances are you’ve seen photos of blogger Amber all over Pinterest and Instagram. Her hairstyles usually consist of big, voluminous braids, beachy waves and some stunning updos.

4. @Hairbyadrianatesler

Hair by Adriana Tesler

She works with all sorts of ladies and a variety of different hair types, so she always opens my eyes to new ideas. If you like how I wear my hair on The Real, you’ll love her insta too. PS: More of my hairstyles from the show are featured on Karim Odoms’s instagram @jeugemaster…he’s responsible for the long waves I’ve worn lately!

5. @bwatuwant

This natural beauty’s profile says ‘some curly fro encouragement’ and it is just that. It’s also nice to see the different colors she tries out on her mane too… In love.

6. @mimiikonn

Mimi Ikonn’s instagram feed is all about beauty and fashion (and some good-looking eats!), but it there are many inspiring hair pictures too, like this style created with paper towels and water. Intrigued? Check it out on Instagram.

8. @happilynaturallit26

Along the same vein, this is another account that I love seeing in my feed. With just about every fro imaginable and lots more, those of you rocking a natural look will get lost in this collection. And don’t be surprised if you see a couple of familiar faces in the mix! ;)

Where do you go for hair inspiration?


  • Thank you for this great post! I am always looking for a lil hair inspiration and see what others are doing! Where I get some of my hair inspirations is fro @moknowshair ( has beautiful curly hair!) & @carolsdaughter! Great pages! Thanks for this Tamera!

  • Darlene

    Only natural styles. But we won’t judge. Love your show. Be Real.

  • Jessie

    #5 Gorgeous stunning thick curls!

  • NAF

    I go to Naptural85. She has an instagram, facebook, twitter, and youtube channel Naptural85 for hair styles and tips and DearNaptural85 is her vlog and it’s family fun filled. Absolutely love her style and how she grew her hair waistlength in 4 years.

  • Guest

    I loved your post, but I was sad to see that all of the people you featured have relatively loose hair patterns. Although it is certainly up to you to decide who to feature, I wish the list were more diverse.

    P.S. I follow Naptural85, I think she is very relatable, has gorgeous hair, and very helpful tutorials.

  • Natural Encouragement

    Much loveeeeee!!!!

  • Great list :) I love stacyhashh, naturallytash, Jouelzy, and Annisa Li Mara…and who doesn’t follow Naptural 85! I reference her YT based on where I’m at in my hair journey!

  • Mia003

    Um why are most of these women blondes with blue eyes? Where are the natural black girls not just mixed girls with light features. Oh and I’m mixed by the way and don’t understand this mixed obsession and light hair/ eyes obsession. Black is pretty too.

  • I’m not on IG, but another great person to follow is Kimberly Elise. I think at ikimberlyelise she posts a lot about natural hair.

  • chynijamz

    I like @sunkissalba. Shes very natural with her hair makeup and lifestyle..

  • Ciara Miles
