15 of the best Instagram lifestyle hashtags to get your photos noticed

In my last post, I told you about how I’d put together a quick and comprehensive guide called How to Grow Your Instagram Following in 3 Simple Steps. I am such a firm believer in committing to your Instagram if you want to see real growth.

If your Instagram account is an extension of your business or your blog, then it’s beyond crucial that you devote the right amount of time to it. Hashtags, of course, are a huge part of growing your audience. You’ve probably been told that using too many hashtags makes your posts look junky. It’s just the opposite, in fact. If you use hashtags strategically then there’s no reason your content needs to look cluttered.

I fancy myself a lifestyle Instagrammer. I love to share photos of my daily life with the occasional selfie thrown in for the sake of posterity. Because of the content I share, finding Instagram hashtags that were suitable for lifestyle photos was job #1. If you aren’t trying to grow your audience, then what’s the point?

Today, I’m sharing with you a selection of 15 of the best lifestyle hashtags I use every single time I post on Instagram. These aren’t all of them, but they’ve helped me grow my Instagram account immeasurably and because of them, in part, I receive 250-400 likes on each post.

Trust me when I say that it took me a long time to find a set of lifestyle hashtags that actually work with my following. Remember that the number of likes you receive is going to also depend on the audience you have at the time. Not everyone will receive 250-400 likes. Some may receive more and some may receive less. The premise, however, is that consistent use of strong, engaging hashtags is key to growing your Instagram following and, with it, your engagement.

    This is a great post! I think hashtags are important on instagram! Before I started blogging I never used hashtags on my instagram account but once I started my engagement and number of likes increased so much!

  • I use a lot of hashtags, but I’ve never really understood the importance of them. Thanks for the enlightenment and the hashtags that actually work for you, awesome! xoxo Robin

  • I believe hashtags are everything when you want your posts to get noticed in Instagram apart from the content! Thanks for sharing this!
