Trend #1: 90 second Reels
Instagram has recently announced it exceeds the duration of Reels to 90 seconds. We believe that lengthy Reels will become trendy for this summer and beyond because Instagram promotes those creators who use the new features of the platform. When the platform launched Reels in the first place, it prioritised the content of those creators who opted for Reels to promote the new feature.
Expectedly, the same will happen this time, so jump on the bandwagon and create longer Reels!

Trend #2: Snatched
Before transitioning, make a gesture as though you're trying to grab something with your hands and lip sync the words 'Snatched' by Big Boss Vette.
This trend is perfect for the creators shooting the makeovers with clothing, makeup, and alike!
Trend #3: My First Instagram Like
The trend's name speaks for itself: you need to show your followers the first post you ever liked on Instagram. To do so, go to three lines on the upper right of your profile screen > Your activity > Interactions > Likes. Then filter the results from oldest to newest to find the first post you reacted to on the platform.
You can use a track from the Instagram library or create your own!
