Feed idea #1. Back only
Let’s start with a simple and beautiful feed idea: Show the back of the hair only. Like @aimeeleahair .
Super fast for you to take photos of your clients hair. Plus, it makes your feed look cohesive super quickly and easily.
Feed idea #2. Tiles
The Tiles grid layout is one of the easiest feeds to create.
Just alternate between 2 types of posts. It can be quotes and photos like @scissor.tech .
Let your imagination go wild. You can also alternate between:
- Photos and videos
- Before and afters and photos
- Reels and photos
Feed idea #3. Color theme
Do you have a brand color?
Use it like @hairbytalen . She is using the same pink background for all her posts.
Feed idea #4. Same background
If you don’t have a brand color but still want your feed to look cohesive: Use the same background.
It can be a wall in your salon, plants, a colored sheet you set up. You choose!
For example, @jodieday.com.au keeps a white background:
Feed idea #5. Lifestyle photos only
Don’t want to share photos of your clients in the salon? Share the end result in real life.
Like @millie.hairstylist does:
Feed idea #6. Client Testimonials
Why not share testimonials of your amazing clients from time to time?
That’s when planning your feed with Preview can be super helpful.
For example, @dalalkassemhair posts testimonials every second row:
Feed idea #7. Reels only
Want to keep it simple? Love Instagram Reels ?
Why not post only Reels videos?
The videos can be:
- Hair tutorials
- Timelapses of transforming your clients’ hair
- Before and afters only
Like @ulyana_nik_hairstylist :
Tip : Schedule your amazing Reels with Preview App , on your phone or computer.
Feed idea #8. Columns
Want to create a layout? The Columns style will make you stand out for sure.
Think about your feed as having 3 columns. Each column can have its own theme.
- Photo (left), quote (middle), photo (right), or
- One color per column (like @catecutdye did – see below)
- Any other idea you have!
Feed idea #9. Rows
Each row can have its own theme.
For example, @artstudioestetika features one client per row.
You could also show photos of same client from different angles.
Feed idea #10. Educational
Want to share hair tips and tricks? Are you a hair educator?
@the.blonde.chronicles is mixing educational posts and hair inspiration.
Feed idea #11. Before & Afters
You can’t go wrong with before and after posts. They are AMAZING to get you new clients.
People want to see transformations and your SKILLS.
@glamnchiseled is the queen of showing before and afters:
Feed idea #12. Fun and games
Want to have a good time with your followers?
Not all your posts have to be photos of hair.
Play games, share memes or cute content – like @luxyhair does.
It can get you more comments and engagement as well
Feed idea #13. Borders
I LOVE this Instagram feed idea for hairstylists!
Each photo has space to shine, because there’s a border around them.
Check out beautiful @lok_lau :
Tip: You can add borders to your photos with Preview App very soon too!
Feed idea #14. Rainbow
One row = one color.
Follow the colors of the rainbow to transition from one row to the next.
I couldn’t find a hairstylist with a Rainbow Instagram Feed (I’m sure there’s someone out there though).
So here is one I created using Preview App :
Feed idea #15. Puzzle
And one of my other favorites: The Puzzle Instagram Feed.
Such a beauty!
Awesome if you want to make a statement.
Which one was your favorite?
I hope you are feeling inspired.
Have a ton of fun creating your feed!
