Snaps of stylist Anh Co Tran embracing gorgeous, willowy models (with amazing hair, natch) abound in his Instagram feed, along with inspiring cuts that reflect his “lived-in hair” trademark style. Fans include Anne Hathaway and Julianne Moore.  

Picture the scene: You’re at your stylist, ready for a cut or color. You pull out a magazine clipping of something that looks kinda/sorta like what you want, only you’d change this and tweak that, and maybe actually it’s not at all what you had in mind. Flash forward to today, when you can zip out your iPhone and flip through a zillion images of inspiring tresses, courtesy of the artists who wield their magic wands (or combs) and create gorgeousness on a daily basis. Following hair stars on Insta is a pet hobby of ours, giving us umpteen ideas for our next big transformation along with a voyeuristic look into their often wacky, always exciting lives. From ombre rainbow braids on street style stars to sleek runway shots from the lastest shows in Paris, our favorite ones to follow all bring their own joie de vivre to their work. Here’s a selection of our faves right now—we accept full responsibility if you’re running to the salon after you finish reading through.
