Instagram is one of our favorite places to find haircut inspiration, our daily dose of unicorn hair colors, and other women dealing with the ups and downs of having curly hair. This is especially helpful when you don’t have many curly family members to look to for tips and tricks, or curlfriends to share in your natural hair journey. We rounded up some of our favorite curly girls to follow on Instagram in 2016...warning: serious hair envy ahead.
