20 Must-Follow Pinterest Boards for Hair and Beauty

If you like a good hair tutorial or makeup tip — or anything useful, really — then you must have a Pinterest account by now. It’s where all the best and beautiful ideas come to be shared, especially under the “style” category.

But not all Pinterest boards are created equal.

So I scoured the site to find my 20 favorite Pinterest users that you should absolutely be following:

    Boards to Follow: ALL of them. has quickly become one of the best Web sources for easy-to-follow beauty tutorials — all of which can be found on their Pinterest page. Although they have brilliant ideas for makeup fixes and DIY beauty products, it's really their hair tutorials that hooked me.

    Boards to Follow: "Primp," and "Wear."

    Speaking of The Beauty Department, its founding celebrity, Lauren Conrad, has an alluring Pinterest page all on her own. Beyond TBD, Conrad pulls inspiring photos and ideas from all over the Web. Although she has her hands in plenty of fashion and beauty biz — from Web sites to fashion collections — her Pinterest page isn't one big self-promotion, which is cool.
