For the season’s latest hairstyles you don’t have to look much further than your feed.

Less than a decade ago, trends in beauty remained relatively consistent for seasons at a time. Now, however, beauty inspiration doesn’t only come from runway and celebrities. Everyday we’re privy to the personal lives of social media personalities and starlets which helps influence our hair color and style options. Online platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube have given birth to plenty of the moment looks and are at times the most influential. Don’t believe me? Click through to the notes to see the looks that produced all the likes and are trending in real life. –– Michelle Rotbart

Mermaid Hair

Type in the hashtag #mermaidhair into Instagram and you’ll get lost in a sea of marine-inspired manes and tendrils. While this look maybe photo-ready, take note that it’ll be difficult to make the dive into this style. Talk to your colorist about up-keep and in the meantime try out a wig or washout spray color.

Glitter Roots

This style was definitely born for the Internet. I can’t imagine wearing this look everyday, but if you’re ready to sparkle, mix a dollop of glitter with gel and paint on roots with a brush. Let sit and then seal with hairspray.

Lived-In Texture

Social media has definitely made model-off-duty style go viral. This look is ubiquitous with models and cool girls just hanging around. It’ll give you major style points and effortless sex appeal.  Talk to your stylist about a layered lob and some perfectly- imperfect hand paintings.

The Half Bun

Forget the lazy-day topknots and wear the half-bun. I’ve seen it on The Kardashians, Nasty Gal, and all over the festival scene. It’s easy to do and flattering for all hair types.
