Looking for Hairspiration?

From natural hair to weaves, a simple and nice hairstyle will complement any outfit and makeup and instantly smarten your appearance. However, it’s hard to think of a new hairstyle every morning, especially when you are pressed for time. I sit down with Racheal Adjei, a Media and Communications graduate and the founder of the hairspiration app, which gives its users hairstyle inspiration.

Hairspiration was thought of years ago – but not in the form of an app. I remember looking for a hairstyle I wanted to do for my first day of Uni and wondered why there was no easy way to find hairstyles except for Google really. I never knew that years later I would actually end up having to do it myself! I had noticed that even on google most black hairstyle images were that of celebrities, and to be fair as much as they have great hair there wasn’t as much variety as you would think there is. A lot of us ladies get stuck wearing the same style time and time again. Very rarely do we try something new, there was a time when literally every girl I would see had a side or middle part weave no matter the occasion the hairstyle was the same everywhere I went. I wanted to switch it up, it’s boring.  At the same time a lot of us are scared to try something new especially if you don’t know a stylist who can really pull the look off for you. Some hairdressers are great at certain things but not others.  Currently, Hairspiration serves as a gallery for hairstyle inspiration, which anyone can try but is centred on Black Hair.



It’s everything in one place, yes you can look up hairstyles on social media like Instagram, but it can be chaotic because you’re likely to follow so many different pages for different things, one that does natural hair, and then one that is great with colouring. Hairspiration has an Instagram and we post different hairstyles too but there is hardly any order with such platforms. Hairspiration is in categories to make your search easy.



The future of Hairspiration hopes to be a long lasting source of all black hair, natural hair, locs, weave, relaxed hair you name it, it’s there.  It’s brings everything that is great about black hair together in one platform.  Hairspiration App is working with salons and stylists, to showcase their work, making it easier to connect our users with stylists they know can pull of the type of hairdo they want.



Within the app there will be a listed menu where they can view hairstyles from the following categories and ‘star’ hairstyles into their favourites section – which certainly comes in handy when showing your stylist what you want.


My thoughts- I have personally used this app for the last month to test out its ease of use and its style gallery. It’s quite easy to use- everything is divided into different categories with clear pictures which are easy to understand and follow.  She also features simple hair care advice, mini product reviews as well as video tutorials for some styles. In conclusion, I will recommend this app for all your hairstyles in one place, instead of looking at many different sources for it. Try it out, it’s completely free!


Hairspiration is available to download from the App Store or Google Play.
