5 Hair Artists to Follow on Instagram

Hair artists to follow on Instagram.
Sounding off on the beauty industry's unsung heroes.

Curating the perfect main page feed on Instagram can be hard. You must discover accounts that inspire and reflect your passions. You have to search out people that consistently deliver satisfying content. For myself, I like to follow a mix of artists, creatives, and beauty accounts (ok, and maybe a puppy page or two). I’ve noticed that I rarely follow hair stylist accounts, as they can be few and far between. After a little research, I’ve found a few feeds that will inspire and bestow beauty and wonder to your infinite scroll, not to mention, make you want to head to your local salon ASAP.

Masami is arguably the coolest hair stylist/colourist/burgeoning creative in NYC (I implore you to find someone better, I’ll wait). Her client’s cuts reflect an androgynous and effortlessly sick style, and her feed is filled with the types of chops every art gal dreams of- ruffled pixie cuts and messy bangs... the styles you might be too afraid to rock, but by following you can experience vicariously.

Justin is the celebrity hair stylist responsible for Jennifer Aniston's gorgeous mane. His minimalistic feed showcases 3 dynamic shots of his recent clients, taken in front of a white brick wall. If you’re into a clean, consistent, and organized aesthetic, and love to marvel at beautifully coloured hair, follow him.

With her work featured in ads for the likes of Kenzo, Calvin Klein, and DKNY, this hair artist has some definite merit within the fashion world. Her feed isn’t commercial at all, but rather features obscure and beautiful snaps of her life, her work, and pictures for her film "This Hair of Mine," which is "a film exploring the African Diaspora through hair.”


One of the most well known names for hair in the fashion world, her Instagram is rich with BTS for shows like Balenciaga and Opening Ceremony. Floating between her work is a bevvy of political advocacy (LGBTQ+ rights, Standing Rock, and resistance versus Trump); one can’t help but be inspired by this hair stylist.


Mischa is a renowned hair stylist with Bumble&Bumble. Her feed is glowing with neon hues and bright novelty do’s. Hit the follow if you are in need of some colourful, outlandish, and delightfully bizarre hairspiration.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
