Instagram Story Highlight Icons


What I'll be talking about

In this episode, I'll be talking about Instagram Highlight Icons for Hairdressers and why I created 15 hair themed designs as a giveaway for my listeners to help you slay your socials. 

I have also created a very special gift for Hairdressers, Colour Lovers and Salon Owners.
Life is hard enough as is. Take some of the stress out of your social media personal branding with these customisable 15 hair themed Instagram Highlight Icons to help lift your social media game and personal branding (they're the freebie resource for you)!

Instagram Stories only last for 24 hours usually, unless you add them into your highlights. This means more people can see them. 

Stories are a great way to share fun, spontaneous and authentic posts plus services you want to promote. Saving your stories into highlights builds more views and impressions per story. It allows you to share more of your team and your business on your profile – not just your feed and your disappearing Instagram Stories. If there is content that resonated with your audience in an Instagram Story, add it straight back into your Highlights. 

I like to view Instagram Icons as a menu of sorts that is permanently displayed at the top of my feed for easy access. Things I suggest to include are – team profiles, opening hours, products you love, photos of your salon work and client testimonials plus anything else that helps your ideal client or customer know how to book you and what your style is. 

My business grew when I started to utilise my Instagram Highlights with a strategy to attract my ideal clientele and communicate with them with pre-empted questions answered. I created this episode to help you to slay your socials and scale your biz. Branded hair themed icons can help clients know your services on offer and products you love, plus how to do business with you.
