Instagram Reels are the way you can create more brand awareness for your Salon. Whether you are a hair salon or a spa, Instagram Reels are an excellent way to develop brand awareness on a platform that’s all about engaging. This post will share 31 Instagram Reel ideas to help you get inspired to make those Reels for your business.
First, why do I need to do Instagram Reels?
Instagram Reels have become the most popular way to get noticed on this platform in the last year. While experimenting on this platform, I found that Reels allowed my brands more engagement and likes than any other avenue on Instagram. The easiest video was my Roasted Beets, Parsnips, and Carrots Recipe, which received 14,074 plays and 266 likes, 123 saves, and 49 shares! Crazy, right? It was the shortest Reel, coming in at just .06 seconds. I know what you are thinking; that’s not in the salon industry. Instagram is about beauty and style; you can do much more than me. Are you ready to try Reels?
