Top 10 Fastest-Growing Instagram Accounts

By Editorial Staff

In the world of likes and follower requests, just about anyone can reach a vast variety of people in their audience of followers. Gone are the days of 150 likes being a “good amount.” Now, if you’re not reaching 800+ likes and just as many new followers, you’re not trying.  Some people can hit at least 500 likes on a photo without even trying. It may seem daunting, but fear not loyal readers! We will show you the fastest-growing Instagram accounts, and we might even give you a few tips on how to get your own account to hang with the big dogs. 

  1. Elle Valera


Fastest Growing Instagram Accounts Elle Valera's Instagram Profile

Let’s start our list slow but steady with fashion model Elle Valera, aka @curvyelle.  Elle boasts a respectable 33,000 followers and a steep 99.1% increase, meaning she essentially doubled her follower count. Perhaps it’s her body-positive message or her eclectic and funky fashion choices, but there is no doubt that Elle has gained traction and a solid following. There is much to learn in the way of fashion and self-confidence from the self-proclaimed “mermaid.”

Corey has increased her following by 126.16%, sending her on her way to a solid audience. She not only utilizes several Instagram accounts, but she also has a YouTube channel with her husband as well as a vlog channel. Her audience enjoys photos of bikinis and abs galore, and also beauty/fashion recommendations and the antics of Corey and her husband, Travis. Her up-close and personal posts about her everyday life invite followers, as many can relate to life with a spouse and kids. 

  1. Hunter Schafer


Fastest Growing Instagram Accounts Hunter Schafer's Profile

Hunter Schafer (@hunterschafer) brings up our next spot with a 154.14% increase in followers, which is doubling her previous follower count and then some! Hunter identifies as she/they pronouns, inviting just about everyone to follow and relate to her. She represents a member of the LGBTQ+ community thriving and following their dreams, which can be the food of dreams for younger followers looking for proof they can follow their dreams, too. It doesn’t hurt that Hunter is Instagram verified and stars in the new HBO show, Euphoria. Followers can enjoy little behind the scenes nuggets of content. 

  1. Naomi Scott


Naomi Scott's Instagram Profile

Naomi Scott, aka @naomigscott, is another quickly growing Instagram account, perhaps thanks to her casting in the new reboot of Charlie’s Angels. With an increase of 156.9%, Naomi’s Instagram account is a prime example of how behind the scenes content and content that really comes from the owner of the account goes so far with followers. Followers get a real-life peek into Naomi’s life, and can live vicariously through her glamorous events.

Golf professional and athlete-extraordinaire, Gary Woodland (@gary.woodland) brings us to our sixth spot on our fastest-growing Instagram accounts list. Gary has increased his following by a comparable 157.73%, bringing his final count to 94,600 followers. It’s no surprise with funny videos of his kids and impressive action shots from his golf game that more and more people are discovering Gary as an athlete and entertainer? Believe it!

  1. Maura Higgins


One of the Fastest Growing Instagram Accounts Maura Higgins

Our number one fastest-growing Instagram account brings us across the pond to another Love Island contestant, Maura Higgins, aka @maurahiggins!

Maura has easily increased her following by almost 10 times and is continuing to grow!

As you can see, all it takes is some subtle changes to the content to grow your Instagram following… or starring as a contestant on a hit reality TV show. However, you get there, take a page out of our list— whether you post about your everyday life, fitness, or your travels. The one thing all our list members share, and that is a really great message. You get back what you put out, people, so put out love and kindness. Sure there may be haters along your road to success, but it’s nothing every fast-growing Instagrammer has to endure. If you want to hang with the big dogs, do as the big dogs do.
