Websites like Seventeen Magazine and Buzzfeed have amazing tutorials like this and this, and Pinterest has a great stock of hairstyle pictures that’ll be sure to give you tons of options. So whether you use it as a guide to bring to your hairdresser or as a tutorial to DIY on prom night, they’re definitely worth looking at. You can even make a “hair inspiration” folder on your computer to save all your favorite styles.

2. Celeb stalk

Is there a celebrity that you just can’t get enough of their hairstyle? Whether it’s Ariana Grande’s infamous ponytail or Taylor Swift’s gorgeous, curly locks, you can use their look as your inspiration.

3. Start collecting magazines

Whether you’re checking out street style pictures of Blake Lively out grabbing Starbucks or are drooling over one of Vogue’s photoshoots, take time to circle, cut out, or highlight some of your favorite looks. It might be fun to make a day of it and have your girlfriends over for a hair inspo party (the more magazines, the merrier)!

4. Ask your hair stylist for inspiration

Is there anyone that knows your hair better than your hair stylist? If you go to the same hair salon on the regular, you might want to ask your hair dresser for any suggestions that he or she might have for your hairdo. More often than not, you can schedule a practice run so that they can try out different styles and make sure the one you’ve picked looks 100% like how you wanted it to.
