Instagram is a fantastic tool to market your salon for free. Here's how to set up an account:

Download the Instagram app from the App Store. Click on the icon to open it. Click 'Create new account'

Add in your mobile number and you will receive a code via text to verify your account

Add in your name.

Create a password 

Then you can change your username or 'instagram handle' which is what people will use to find you

Follow the next steps to select whether you're 18 or over. You can then choose whether to connect with your phone contacts and your Facebook friends or skip to the next page.

Then add a profile photo.  You can choose whether to take a snap then and there or use one from your camera roll. 

Once you've added your photo you can then start choosing your followers or skip to the next page. 

You'll then land on your profile page. From here, you can click on your menu (3 lines in the top right hand corner) and edit your profile. In here you can put a bio about yourself and add in your website or link to your Facebook page. 

Now it's time to get snapping and posting! Please see our additional article on how to build your Instagram profile
