Em­ploy An Insta Hus­band

Look (UK) - - COVER STORY -

Let’s hear it for the un­sung he­roes of the blog­ging world: the boyfriends, the hus­bands, the ama­teur pho­tog­ra­phers. Oth­er­wise known as ‘hu­man selfie sticks’, this un­der­rated group is ev­ery blog­ger’s right-hand man. So much so that there’s an In­sta­gram ac­count ded­i­cated to sup­port­ing them (@ig.hus­band, if you were won­der­ing). In fact, they were be­hind the In­sta­gram hus­band video that went vi­ral in 2016.

Even celebs are get­ting in on the ac­tion. For­mer US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama has been given the ti­tle since stand­ing down, and last month Ryan Reynolds se­cured his own sta­tus as Blake Lively’s of­fi­cial Insta hus­band af­ter snap­ping a se­ries of photos of Blake pos­ing on the beach (left). Se­ri­ously cute be­hav­iour, guys.

But while you might al­ready have or be tempted to em­ploy your very own other half to snap away, you need to re­mem­ber two things; firstly, their cam­era skills may never live up to your ex­act­ing stan­dards – just look at Ryan’s blurry shots of Blake. Se­condly, it can se­ri­ously af­fect your re­la­tion­ship. In a re­cent US study, it was found that 25 per cent of all ar­gu­ments the sub­jects re­ported were some­thing re­lated to so­cial me­dia. As Fash­ion As­sis­tant Bri­die Wilkins knows only too well..

We would ar­gue con­stantly

‘Be­hind ev­ery cute girl on In­sta­gram is a guy like me…’
