The 10 Types Of Girls You Find On Instagram

When it comes to Instagram, it’s important to stay true to your personal brand, whatever that may be. Whether you’re obsessed with pictures of overpriced avocado toast or can’t go a day without snapping a selfie, it’s more than likely that your ‘gram game is mostly the same thing. Realistically, if you’re an Instagram user, you’ve been all 10 of these ladies at one time or another – but there’s probably one that you absolutely hate.

  1. The Brunch ‘Grammer. Another day, another bougie brunch that this girl felt the need to share with the world. The brunch ‘grammer is guilty of being a serious drinker, which means that her breakfast Instas usually come through your feed close to 4PM. She spends an exorbitant amount of money on poached eggs, avocado toast, and latte art (that she’s almost always too hungover too eat).
  2. The Selfie Queen. Every picture is proof that she’s trying to make a boy jealous (you can tell by the cleavage shots aplenty). She looks good, but you can’t help but wonder how long it took her to get ready — and where she plans on going with full makeup, fake eyelashes, and in a spandex dress at noon on a Monday.
  3. The Trust Fund Baby. This girl goes on vacation more than you order delivery, and that’s really saying something. Whether she’s eating at a restaurant that takes weeks to get into or posing with a celebrity, her life is the ultimate Instagram-worthy moment. Her life is so bougie you debate befriending her, if only for the bottle service and access to entire football teams.
  4. The Girlfriend. Her entire feed is one big #MCM and it’s kind of driving you crazy. Spoiler alert — no one cares what your boyfriend made for dinner, no one wants to see the wilted bouquet he bought you, and your sunset photo is downright cheesy. There are no photos of her friends or even of what she made for dinner — unless he’s in them, obviously. Her hashtags drive you absolutely insane. He’s not #sohot and their #love would exist without the hashtags to prove it.
  5. The One Without A Filter. This girl has no filter, and not just when it comes to her ‘gram game. She shares her daily life constantly, whether it’s her eyeliner streaked cheeks post-break up, inspirational quotes, or exactly what she’s doing/thinking/eating. She uses Instagram like Foursquare. You can’t help but feel like you know more about her than you know about yourself.
  6. The Party Girl. You legitimately don’t understand why anyone would hire this girl or how she even gets up for work in the morning. She has no shame which makes her feed wildly entertaining… but it also means that if the police ever stumbled upon what she was posting, she would probably be in prison by the morning.
  7. The Amateur Fashion Blogger. She calls herself a fashion blogger, but you’re pretty sure the majority of her wardrobe comes from Old Navy. She’s somehow always on crazy expensive vacations and posing in front of  exposed brick or carefully curated graffiti. No day job means she can devote her ‘gram to a desk set up that would never exist in an office and makeup tutorials midday. Every photo is beyond perfectly filtered, which makes you wonder what her life actually looks like when the camera’s off.
  8. The Girl With The Brand New Baby. You love kids, but that doesn’t mean you want one today. Luckily, you can live vicariously through your Instagram feed. This girl won’t stop showing off her baby, from its first steps to its first word (obviously mommy). Same goes for girls who ‘gram their pets endlessly. Whether it’s a cute kitten or an adorable puppy, it’s an entire feed of nuggets (which is far superior to selfies).
  9. The Meme Teen. Tweens are way better than grown ups when it comes to social media, but you’ll never understand the wide array of memes the youths in your life come up with regularly.
  10. The Wannabe Chef. It’s impressive that you’re cooking more than take-out Chipotle, but no one wants to see the beyond basic chicken you made. Almost anyone can boil water for pasta, so no one’s going to be liking the store-bought sauce monstrosity you cooked up and needed to share with the world. It’s like Kris Jenner’s cookbook — recipes that literally anyone (including a Kardashian) can make.
