All dressed up with somewhere to go? ‘Tis the season, after all. Hopefully you’ve got your going-out outfit figured out, but have you thought about the most important part of any evening look—your hair? Whether you’ve got big parties planned or just a night of fun doing your own hair in the bathroom mirror (hey, sometimes, those are the best nights of all), we’ve got the 7 Instagrammers you want to follow for gorgeous going out hair, from long hair to short, from braids to bobs to updos to the very grandest of ta-da’s! Ready to double tap? Let’s do this...

holiday updo


We love Amber’s playful use of hair accessories and endless array of long hair styles using clip-in extensions, from braids to easy, messy buns. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that her fashion is to-die-for, too.

Major girl crush here. Taylor LaShae is a bit hard to define: actress, model, social media Influencer and definite trendsetter. But her wavy bob and messy fringe is why we follow her. It just goes to show that with the right cut and a whole lot of confidence, you don’t necessarily need anything fancy to command attention.

The descriptor on this Instagram account is “Big Hair, Big Dreams”, and we’d like to add: #BigHairGoals. With absolutely stunning curls, Sarah’s feed is full of effortlessly coifed updos, half-up styles, beautiful blow outs, and truly some of the best natural curls we have ever seen. Luckily, she posts easy-to-follow tutorials for how to get her hairstyles, so we can all dream big.
