London Fashion Week: The best Instagram accounts to follow for hair inspiration

Now we’re not all able to sit front row for what is arguably the hottest ticket in town, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get our fix of style inspiration from across the pond as London Fashion Week makes its way to the cobbled streets of the UK’s capital.

The fashion elite flock to London twice a year for a preview of the coming season’s fashion trends and while we can appreciate a good outfit as much as the next woman, our interest lies behind the scenes. Backstage is where you will find the hottest hair styles, learn styling techniques and tricks only the best session stylists know, so you see what really goes into having model-worthy hair.

For an access-all-areas experience to London Fashion Week without even having to move a muscle, look no further than your own Instagram feed. We’ve rounded up the accounts you need to follow to see a behind the scenes look of next season’s hair inspiration.

So head over to your Instagram feed. London’s calling.

 Sarah Harris, Fashion Features Director at British Vogue

Not only is she Fashion Features Director at British Vogue, Sarah Harris is one of the most photographed members of the UK press and fits right in amongst top models. As well as being incredibly stylish, what really makes her stand out is her stunning long silver hair. Silver hair has been a trend for some time now but Sarah Harris has previously talked about how her hair naturally turned a silver shade at 16 or 17 and she has always embraced this. Little did she know that it would soon become her signature trait coveted by many.

Sam McKnight, Professional Hair Stylist

Known as a hair legend, Sam McKnight has worked on some of the most famous heads of hair in the world and we get a front row seat in his salon as he regularly posts step-by-step guides to his many hair styling sessions so we can have a go at creating these looks on ourselves at home.



Karlie Kloss, Model

Where else are we going to get a better experience of what it’s like to be at London Fashion Week than following a supermodel who will bring us along for every step of the way. Karlie Kloss is fun but informative with Instagram where she gives us a peek inside Fashion Week and shares posts on how her hair is being styled before she even steps foot on the catwalk.
