We like to think of Instagram as a VIB (Very Important Bride) pass to the most breathtaking wedding venues, the dreamiest dresses, and of course, gorgeous wedding day beauty looks. Not sure if you're following the right crowd? For starters, if you're not already doing so, our own Instagram will keep you double-tapping all day long. But if you're specifically looking for tons of hair inspiration, we also happen to know some of the coolest stylists in the industry, whose feeds are veritable treasure troves of braids, beach waves, updos, and stunning hair accessories. Here, we round up the seven pros that are about to make your Instagram feed a whole lot prettier.

Sarah Potempa for Amazing Braids

Just when you think you've seen every braid imaginable, Aussie celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa seriously ups the ante. She posts her fresh interpretations of plaits on a regular basis. Whether you're looking for an updo, flowing waves or something in between for the big day, the founder of the famous Beachwaver is a genius at creating perfect, glossy curls.

Riawna Capri for Short Hair Inspiration

We can't tell whose hair we love more: Riawna Capri or her celebrity clients. As the woman behind Emma Roberts, Hilary Duff, and Nina Dobrev's famous bobs, she's got us convinced that the lob is more versatile than ever. If you're thinking about going short for your wedding day, look no further than this Instagram feed where Capri posts gorgeous shots of freshly cut strands and the awe-inspiring ways she dresses them up afterward.

Kylee Heath for Modern Accessorizing

Sophisticated, incredibly chic hair is the name of the game over on this celeb stylist's Instagram feed. Whether she's whipping up a chignon or creating an intricate twist, expect to see red carpet 'dos that easily translate into wedding-worthy looks.

Kristin Ess for Gorgeous Ponytails

Not only is her affordable luxury hair-care line for Target a cult-favorite, but she's also a co-founder of The Beauty Department, our longtime go-to site for amazing hair and makeup tutorials. Ess is BFFs with much of her celebrity clientele so her feed feels more like a personal diary than an Instagram account. When she isn't documenting a Pinterest-worth style on Lauren Conrad or Lucy Hale, she's giving us all the half-up, full-on updo and ponytail inspo.

Mara Roszak for Out-Of-The-Box Ideas

Red carpet regulars like Emma Stone, Cara Delevingne, Bri Larson, Olivia Wilde, and Daisy Ridley–to name a few–have Roszak on speed dial. And though most of us mere mortals can't call the in-demand stylist at the touch of a button, we can be the first to see her eye-catching unique looks fresh off her Insta feed–ahem, Billie Eilish. The best part is that the stylist isn't shy about sharing her tips and tricks. From the key products it takes to get the look at home, to the exact brands of hard-to-find hair accessories, we're always finding something new to obsess over.

Johnny Ramirez and Anh Co Tran of Ramirez|Tran Salon for Great Color

Despite the celebrity trends, you won't find crazy rainbow dye jobs on this duo's page—just a slew of gorgeous, natural-looking styles that you can actually picture yourself wearing on your wedding day. Their "Lived-In Color" dye process lets the look last for six months (a technique so good they got it trademarked). Plus, they also know how to provide the kind of hair movement that you thought was only reserved for princesses in storybooks, which looks special enough on its own for your big day. We can only chalk it up to pure hair wizardry.

Jen Atkin for Stunning Texture

No one knows how to masterfully mix a cocktail of hair products for the perfect texture quite like Jen Atkin, and she recently invented her own Ouai haircare line to prove it. Her account is also full of Kardashian cameos—say what you will about them (and we're sure you have), but one scroll through her feed and you have to admit the sisters do have covetable strands.
