We’ve probably already nailed down achieving an “Instagram-worthy” face. Thanks to makeup and an array of filters we could choose from, taking a gorgeous #iwokeuplikethis photo is effortless.

We can’t say the same about hair. “Instagram-worthy” hair is just elusive. No filter seems to be able to get it to look natural or right; so what is it that the picture-perfect influencers know that we don’t?

If you’re ready for good hair days, especially in your photos, read on for the tips that influencers practise but probably won’t share with you.

1. Never take a photo without styling your hair

Just like how you’d apply some makeup before you snap a photo for the ‘gram, your hair could certainly do with some styling.

Some hard work is needed to look great in your social media photos all the time. The must-have tools to arm yourself with?

  • A hair straightener: This can be used to straighten out weird kinks and bed-hair, and can also be used to create va-va-voom curls.
  • Hair volumising clips: These are put on the roots of your hair to create instant volume.
  • Hair spray: Done styling your hair? Make sure they don’t budge by spritzing some hair spray to set it.

2. Lighting matters

The gorgeous hair colour that you’ve just got at the salon won’t show up in your photos unless you get the lighting right. The best hair photos are actually taken in natural light, but with some shadows so light hits at different spots; this makes your hair look shinier.

If you’ve already mastered regular photos, consider a back-lit photo. While back light is usually seen as a no-no in photography, when done properly, it could actually make great hair look more obvious, as its silhouette is emphasised.

3. Give your scalp and hair more love

Just as a good facial can help you see a more radiant complexion that looks good even without makeup, scalp and hair care is key to achieving Instagram-worthy tresses you covet.

In fact, if you care about how your hair look, chances are you might be going for chemical processes (hair bleaching, dyeing, and perms) or using lots of heated tools to style your hair. These can be damaging to your scalp and hair, making your tresses look dull and frizzy over time.

Many influencers with great hair go for scalp treatments to keep their crowning glory in tip-top condition.

For instance, online personality Wendy Cheng (better known as Xiaxue), who has more than 590,000 followers on Instagram, visits TK TrichoKare (pronounced as Try-ko-care!) regularly to treat her scalp, scheduling her appointments especially after she has bleached her hair.
