Celebrity Hairstylist: @jenatkinhair

If you’ve ever envied the tresses of celebs such as Cindy Crawford, Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Alba or any of the Kardashian sisters, you’ve seen the handiwork of Jen Atkin. Her feed is full of styled snaps of her famous clients plus product recommendations, tutorial teasers and tips.

Grammed by @jenatkinhair: Atkin’s weekend hair essentials include Sachajuan’s Ocean Mist styling spray, available at The Glam Room.


Makeup Maven: @icovetthee

UK-based Alix Coburn was made to be a YouTube star: She has fresh, fair and glowing skin that makes products absolutely pop during her makeup tutorials, and her British accent makes taking in the tips feel like a dreamy day at beauty school. Follow her on Instagram for favorite products and teasers of her tutorials.

Grammed by @icovetthee: Coburn turned us onto products by fellow Brit Charlotte Tilbury. Her current obsessions include the Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadow and Colour of Youth lip and cheek glow, available at Nordstrom.


Best Barber: @inthecut305

Gentlemen not blessed with Jared Leto-type locks also often find themselves in need of a little hair inspiration. Suggest your guy follow Hamlet Garcia, co-owner of the His & Hers Parlour in Miami’s
hip Wynwood neighborhood, where dreams of rock n’ roll-inspired pompadours come true—and then get photographed and posted online.

Grammed by @inthecut305: Pompadours require good products and Garcia often grams demos using ADH Dry and Wet, available at andrewdoeshair.net.


Green Beauty: @kimberlyloc

On her blog, kimberlyloc.com, Kansas Citian Kim Wallace reviews natural beauty products (everything from coconut crème foundation to avocado oil-based deodorant), shares recipes for DIY treatments and documents her nontoxic makeup looks. Her Instagram is equally well stocked with product profiles, and the best part? Each good’s ingredients always fit into the caption.

Grammed by @kimberlyloc: Going green doesn’t have to mean skimping on style with products like Fior Minerals Organic Eyeliner (available at fiorminerals.com) or Au Naturale Pure Pro Lipstick (available at aunaturaleglow.com).


Healthy Hair Pro: @moknowshair

If you are a woman with naturally curly hair, do yourself (and your waves or spirals) a favor and follow Kansas City native Monica “Mo” Stevens on Instagram. Stevens isn’t a professional stylist but her own perfectly coifed crown of bouncy red curls is all we needed to see to trust her natural hair maintenance, styling and product tips.

Grammed by @moknowshair: Stevens travels a lot to spread the gospel of going au naturel, and her packing snapshots are goldmines for product inspiration. On a recent hop across the pond, she packed the tgin (Thank God I’m Natural) Moist Collection, which includes a Honey Miracle Hair Mask, available at Target.
