the beauty dept hair instagram

Let’s be honest… if I were to log actual hours spent on my phone looking through Instagram at all the women with good hair, no doubt I would be in absolute shock! No apologies here, though. When I find a good head of hair on insta, I go into some hypnotic state and all of the sudden find myself deep-creepin’ those curls, braids, waves and windblown strands for an unhealthy amount of time. In this new series, I want to shine some light on those who I think are really ahead of the game in the hair department and tell you a little bit about them so that maybe they can bring some beauty to your daily feed as well. Here we go…

Hair goals, beachwave goals, air dry goals, freckle goals, bronze goddess goals… I could keep going with the goals list, but you should just go see for yourself. There’s no way you can look at Jessica’s photos and not want to run to the beach, apply coconut oil to your hair and go play in some clear blue lagoon.

Origninally, I was drawn to Hannah Faith’s page because of her feed. It clear that she’s an artist first and foremost, and happens to have one of the best heads of hair on instagram, in my opinion. Here you’ll find so much beauty inspo intertwined with travel, taste, colors and other girl bosses. Bonus follow: her creative agency @weareinbloom!

There’s no way I need to tell you why this Kiwi kills the off-duty-model-beauty game. Her hair is so perfectly undone and makes me never want to touch a hair brush again (#InShowerCombOutOnly!) Even though she’s from New Zealand, she’s giving me vintage French film girl vibes AF.

I love blonde wood and I love blonde waves. How can you not be obsessed with this woodworking STUNNER?? She’s killin’ the game with her inlay art pieces all while looking so flawless, you’d never know she lifted a finger. Luckily she told me her top 3 hair faves: THIS LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER, THIS DRY SHAMPOO and THIS SALT SPRAYGet them all and grab a piece of art while you’re at it!

Rarely am I blown away by someone’s hairstyling range but this girl is off the charts amazing. She explores so many looks and nails them all so perfectly. From her gorgeous, voluminous, bouncy natural coils to her bantu knots to having faux locs on lock, I would say she’s my new favorite. It took me about 3 seconds to find her youtube and subscribe. Mega fan of this baby face beauty.

That brings us to Alanna Nicole who is quickly style blogging her way to the top! But wait… can we pleeeease talk about that hair color again tho??

I stopped in my insta tracks when I realized this is the girl everyone brings me pictures of as hair inspo. She’s in all the Planet Blue look books and you may also recognize her from some Wild Fox shoots as well. I recognized her from the torn magazine pages that get shoved in my face more often than I can tell you. Enjoy following this blonde bombshell.

You will be blown away by this angel-faced Brit. Her hairstyles are perfection and her lip color choices legit had me bolting over to ASOS since she’s also an insider there. Be prepared to creep deep into her archives of both hair and makeup.


name: frida aasen

This girl gives me all the modern-day Brigitte Bardot vibes. It’s almost like a doll and an angel and supermodel had a baby named Frida. I just want her to clog up the feed with her perfect blonde windswept vacation hair. PLEASE!?


name: rachael ann lunghi

This girl is a baddddd ass. She’s a stylist, she’s a florist, she’s a gorgeous vision. Her page is full of beauty in so many forms. She’s positive and powerful and real and her posts are so meaningful. Follow her for perfectly curated feminine realness.




Doing your own hair for your wedding is just straight up INTIMIDATING, amiright?? Well thank goodness for this epic, game changing PEARL HALO because it’s about to take all your day-of struggles away. I’ve uploaded a quick video to our INSTAGRAM to show how unbelieveably easy this is! It’s kind of crazy that it can be so simple. And yes, it’s fairly expensive, but most likely less expensive than having a hairstylist come do your hair on your wedding day. If you’re on a budget, you can go get an epic blowout at a salon somewhere and then pop this in! Here’s how it works…

Start with whatever texture you want; waves, curls, straight, natural, whatever! Dana is a lucky girl… this is basically her natural wave with a couple taps of the curling iron on random pieces that wouldn’t behave. (uggggggggh I want it).

Next, add a bit of DRY TEXTURE SPRAY. This is great for adding texture AND slip prevention. Once you spray that, IF you feel the need, you can lift the top layer of hair and do a little tease/backcomb patch just behind the ear right where the combs will slide in. I recommend doing this if you’re planning to wear this all day or if your hair is shiny/slippery.

Then you just simply slide the piece in to place and you’re DONE. Yes, it’s that easy!! Now I’m going to show you a ton of photos from different angles so you know what it looks like all around.

And here’s a slightly closer shot. You can see that the band the pearls sit on is solid which makes this feel very secure!

What do you guys think of this accessory? I think LELET needs to make a million different kinds of these immediately because they’re just plain incredible. For those of you who will ask, the difference between this and this REVERSE HEADBAND I posted a couple weeks ago is this is solid and doesn’t bend the way the chain one in that post does. And while you KNOW I love that chain, this one stays put and might be my new favorite because it’s less likely to move.
