The Top Five UK Influencers to Follow

Tamzin Meyer December 17, 2021

If you are anything like me then you are most likely glued to Instagram, trying to get in on all the up and coming trends that influencers have branded ‘the next best thing.’ I follow a lot of UK influencers so it is only fair that I share some of my favourites with you. Then you too can bless your ‘gram with the most aesthetic feeds!

#1 – @mollymae

Molly-Mae Hague is my all-time favourite influencer, fully embracing her Love Islander turned girlboss aesthetic. With 6.2 million followers, you cannot go on social media without seeing one of her posts. There is nothing that the Hertfordshire born beauty cannot do, with her iconic fashion sense, platinum locks and extremely hard work ethic, securing her hundreds of brand deals and a dream job as the Creative Director of PrettyLittleThing.

She is absolutely bossing her way through life, being an absolute queen at the age of 22. She has bagged herself a dream career, has Tommy Fury as her boyfriend and has her name on endless PR lists. Her feed surely highlights this success. Currently, Molly-Mae’s feed is all about those autumn-winter colours, showcasing a black, white and brown wardrobe.

Head over to her gram and you will be sure to see many oversized jackets and blazers. Nobody pulls off work attire quite like Molly-Mae!

#2 –  @saffronbarker

Saffron Barker is one of the biggest Youtubers of the modern day. After years of dedication on Youtube, with her own success inspiring her brothers Casey and Jed to pick up the camera, Saffron has become a household name (well she is one in my house anyway!)

Her success has seen her compete on Strictly Come Dancing and release ranges with In The Style and Primark. Saffron’s Instagram portrays her glam persona perfectly, providing followers with serious hair and makeup goals. The amount of holidays she goes on is enough to make us wish we were jet-setting off with her, but luckily for us, we can be there in spirit, living all of her superstar adventures from the comfort of our homes.

#3 – @anastasiakingsnorth

Most will know Anastasia Kingsnorth for her successful, self-titled Youtube channel. Being BFF’s with other popular influencers like Saffron, Anna has made quite the name for herself. Her Instagram is just as successful as her Youtube content, with her feed ensuring that all eyes are on Anna like the star that she is. Her content usually involves a rather plain and minimalist background which does wonders in showcasing Anna’s well put together outfits.

If you are wondering what to expect, her feed reminds me of Molly-Mae’s but with a bit of colour sprinkled through it. Anna herself has been a girlboss from a young age, working on building her empire, now with 1 million Instagram followers under her belt. She has come a long way from her early Youtube days as ‘Floral Princess’ and has turned into a true social media queen.

#4 – @kaci.jay

Kaci-Jay Conder may only be 16 years old but this has not stopped her from making a name for herself. Being a part of the Youtube channel, Dad v Girls, the youngster has 646k followers on her personal Instagram account and has even had her own clothing edit with In The Style, which I could not help myself from buying. Her Instagram account sees her style different looks, especially rocking a statement tracksuit, even modelling for her family’s clothing brand, Des Vu.

Kaci-Jay loves a good posey pic but don’t we all?! One thing is for sure, this is a girl that is certainly living the dream.

#5 – @jesshunt2

Whether or not you’ve heard of Jess Hunt before, you have certainly seen her face. The model, who has her own makeup brand called Refy Beauty, has been the face of many brands before starting her own. She has had the pleasure of working with all of my fave brands, including PrettyLittleThing, Lullabellz, and Oh Polly.

She is an Insta goddess and takes the phrase ‘golden hour’ to a whole new level. Her feed consists of the most well thought out aesthetics I have ever seen, with each post contributing to the overall chic vibe Jess embodies. Jess’s style just screams luxury and sophistication, which just has to be admired.
