Looking to spruce up your hair, but not sure where to find inspiration? There’s no better place than Instagram.

The photo-sharing app is a treasure trove of hair-themed accounts that provide endless images of perfectly tousled cuts, magical rainbow locks, clean fades and gorgeous curls. And thanks to Instagram’s Favorites feature, you can save all the pics you love in one place, making it easy to show your stylist exactly what you’re looking for when you’re sitting in the chair.

Before you head to your next hair appointment, get inspired by 15 of our favorite hair accounts. They take hair goals to a whole new level:

1

A post shared by Lust Hair (@lusthairnz) on

Lust Haircare's Instagram account is loaded with brightly colored hair inspiration -- which makes sense, considering Lust is a semi-permanent hair color brand specializing in vibrant shades. If you've ever contemplated dyeing your locks blue, pink, orange or any other color of the rainbow, scrolling through this account might just be that final push you need to go for it.

Curly girls will find plenty of inspiration on stylist Leysa Carrillo's account. Carillo is a Cuban stylist based in Las Vegas known for "her hair color transformations on textured hair." Whether you want to update your color or enhance your natural curls, there's no shortage of photos to bring with you to the salon.

The livedinhair account by celebrity stylist Anh Co Tran really delivers on its name, providing endless photos of tousled hair that looks effortless and, well, lived in. Tran, who's made a name for himself thanks to his "lived-in hair" styles, is a celebrity stylist based in Los Angeles and calls himself "the master of extensions."

Canadian salon Good Day Hair Shop's account is pretty much like a colorful mood board with plenty of hair inspiration -- especially in the form of pastel and rainbow hues -- mixed in with cool images that complement the account's overall Tumblr-esque aesthetic. Who says you can't mix your hair inspiration with pictures of rainbow birds and Rihanna?

A post shared by Dominick Serna (@domdomhair) on

Stylist Dominick Serna is an expert in giving hair "undone modern texture." What we love about his account, aside from all the photos of sleek bobs and perfectly tousled beach waves, are the video clips that give a little insight into his cutting process and technique. They can help you better describe what you're looking for when you get to the salon.

If you're looking for textured or sleek bobs, stylist Julie Holbrook's account is for you. Holbrook is a self-proclaimed lover of pink and short hair, and you'll find plenty of images of both -- and much more -- on her account.

Curly Naturals, curated by the folks behind hair care line Breahni, features images of curly girls from all over Instagram rocking their natural curls.

A post shared by B E C S • M K (@becs_mk) on

Instagram user becs_mk isn't a stylist, but she's a self-identified "hair adventurer" who loves documenting her pixie cut in all its blond glory. She makes a great case for getting chopped.

A post shared by @citycurlstudio on

City Curl Studio's Instagram account is the place to go for curly hair goals. Like some of the other accounts on this list, City Curl Studio in Staten Island, New York, shares videos of their stylists at work, often using a dry cutting method to really embrace the shape of each client's curls. Dry cutting is great for curly hair, so if you want to try it out, ask your stylist or find a salon (like DevaCurl's Devachan) that specializes in the technique.
