Just a few select phrases stand between you and the next haircut that’ll make you feel like a million bucks—or the one that’ll make you start internally hyperventilating from regret. Describing exactly what you want to your hair stylist is anything but easy, especially for those who have a vision in mind they can’t quite articulate. Not to mention, everyone thinks a little differently. Our words might not paint the same pretty picture in our hairdresser’s head as in our own; it’ll still be a pretty picture, just not our pretty picture. The most foolproof way to make sure you and your stylist are on the same page before the scissors start snipping is to do your research before your appointment. Bring along tangible inspiration in the form of a cut or color carefully selected from your favorite Instagram account. With a clear vision set from the get-go, there’s infinitely less room for error. To help you find your next million-dollar hairstyle, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Instagrammers that post more perfectly layered, brilliantly styled haircuts than you’d ever need. Make sure to give these hair gurus a little love, and peruse their accounts before your next salon appointment.
