Getting lost in the cyber space that is Pinterest is a bit like falling down the rabbit hole to Wonderland – somehow hours go by in minutes, obligations fall away and you’ve accumulated dozens of creative ideas you’re reeling to try.
If you don’t have the time to explore for days on end, we’ve collected a quick snapshot from the INSTYLE Pinterest boards. With boards pertaining to hair, beauty and fashion – not to mention exclusive magazine shots and all the imagery from Styleicons – it’s the daily dose of inspiration guaranteed to spark your imagination.
Which of these 14 looks is your favourite?
1. Coat of many colours
Pinterest knows no geographic bounds, meaning shots like this British wonder can be found in a matter of clicks. This image merges creative colour, styling and beauty seamlessly in a total look sure to inspire the editorially minded.
2. Love from L’Oreal
This L’Oreal Professionnel shoot in the March April 2014 issue of INSTYLE was an exercise in Chanel levels of chic. Usually reserved for the glossy pages of the mag, Pinterest delivers the inspo right to your desktop.
3. Pretty in pastel
Want new twists on old styling shapes and no inhibitions when it comes to colour? Pinterest has you covered.
4. Cara in coral
INSTYLE’s Pinterest is filled with beauty as well as hair, and Cara Delevigne’s coral lips and bold green eyeliner is certainly a look worthy of our boards.
5. Tests of texture
When you travel to the farthest corners of the internet you’re bound to find the weird and the wonderful – take this artistic look from American stylist David Barron, who’ll make you reconsider your approach to texture.
6. Into the jungle
We like to add a bit of colour to your fashion routine, and we do it with trendiest, most vibrant shots we can find.
7. Crown of curls
Pinterest is where stylists show off their creative chops and this shot has it all – from clashing textures to a commercial colour you could recreate for your clients.
8. Spanish style
Our fashion boards are inundated with international fashion trends to keep your stylistic mind racing. Take this sophisticated black and white shot from Vogue Spain that had us almost wishing it was winter again.
9. Bold over
These editorial beauty images are a great way to start considering the different facets of a total photographic look. A bold lip and strong brow never goes astray.
10. Animalistic Avant Garde
The huge scope of creative images on Pinterest means that we frequently venture into the realm of the Avant Garde, and this fascinating look from the runways of Jean Paul Gaultier is a great place to start.
11. Fresh faced
The online coverage of international fashion weeks on Styleicons means that the looks will show up on your Pinterest home page. This naïve and purposefully haphazard look by Wella Professionals for Haider Ackerman at Paris Fashion Week is a personal favourite.
12. Something for Kate
This 70s inspired, blue matador-esque shot of Kate Moss for AnOther Magazine, outlines just why it’s important to keep up to date with the fashion greats.
When we dig into the INSTYLE archives we’re guaranteed to find old gems, and this culturally inspired shot by Caterina Di Biase for our July August 2014 issue is at the top of the list.
14. Creative colour
There’s no limit when it comes to collection imagery sure to inspire, and it’s all readily collated on our Styleicons board. This combination of pastel hues and braids from the Rokk Ebony Colour Competition is a great shot to rehash.
Pinetrest ensures there’s something for everyone, whether your tastes range from commercial to the conceptual. Tap into the well of ideas that is Pinterest and get pinning!
