While we’re a tad obsessed with the 30 second cooking ones, and the 90 second crafty ones, it has to be the hair tutorials that have us losing hours to watching mermaid braids, twisted upstyles, and curly blowdries on repeat.

Now, while we’re not encouraging you to abandon all productivity, these Instagram accounts can serve as a big help when you’re planning your wedding.
Bringing you ideas on your big day hair, and giving you tips on keeping your mane looking its best in the lead up to your wedding, these videos can also equip you with serious skills for styling your hair in all the big events ahead of your wedding (we can’t always have a hairstylist on speed dial, right?).
But not all Insta accounts are created equal, and we don’t want you wasting your precious lunch break watching bad ones on loop, so, we’ve put together a few of our faves.
Whether you’ve got a natural fro or long straight locks, are looking for a halo braid for your bridesmaids or trying to perfect a rehearsal dinner chignon, these talented Insta hairstylists will guide you on your way.
(Just don’t blame us when you’ve lost an hour to watching one of them artfully diffuse their curls!)
