1. Catch My Face

This really fun trend has been trending and creators can’t seem to get enough of it. All you have to do is try to catch your eyes, nose and mouth correctly by blinking. If you get it right, you complete your face, haha! If you ask me the difficulty level of this challenge is medium, so why don’t you try it out too!

2. #Baby

This hit number by Justin Bieber received an interesting twist and the internet cannot get enough of it. This Reel trend has an amazing dance routine and creators are adding their own generous sprinkle of sass to it. This one by Jannat Zubair is done so well and smoothly that I may have watched it on loop.

3. Jeff Bezos

This one trend is the perfect way in which one can summarize their journey of ‘then and now’, and can highlight the fact about how long you’ve come. The ‘then and now’ bit can be shown in just two photos. I love how Anushka Sen has taken a few shots, compiled it and added a touch of swag along with her two pics. Also, special mention of how this Reels audio has such a motivating vibe.

The #blinkat4 challenge is yet another super cool challenge where you have to blink exactly at 4.000. And trust me this one can get quite tricky, cause there are plenty of creators who have missed the 4.000 mark by just a few seconds. Also, I love how Siddharth Nigam has just quite easily done this one, don’t you agree?

5. Photo Crop

If you’re looking for an Instagram trend to do with your group of friends then this one sure is gonna be a whole lot of fun. In this trend, you simply have to not get clicked by the crop box. Sounds easy, but can be tricky, so how about you give this a try. Also, Mrunal Panchal and Anirudh Sharma look super cute in this one?

6. F.R.I.E.N.D.S Audio Challenge

Who does not love the TV series F.R.I.E.N.D.S right? And if you love this series, you will defo know the title track of it word-by-word, amirite? This trend is about not knowing the words but knowing at the exact moment where the clap comes in the song. Anam Darbar tried this trend out with Naveen Sharma and it sure does look fun. BRB trying this trend out right away!

7. #QuestionsIGetAskedAs

First of all, let’s talk about the audio of this Reel trend, it is so catchy that it may have lived in my mind for longer than usual, rent-free! But what I love about this trend is how creators are highlighting the most asked questions along with their wacky reverts. In this Reel, I love how Ashi Khanna has answered the questions straight to the point, you go girl!

8. 1,2,3… Loading

This is a super cute trend that has been making rounds too. All you have to do is use the ‘Loading’ filter and after the count of 1,2,3 the screen freezes and the loading graphic appears. This is an amazing filter to try out with your friends, just like the way this Teen Tigada trio did it. So, what are you waiting for try it out ASAP!

So here are a few Reel trends that made creators go gaga on the ‘gram. While these trends may have a basic outline, I love how creators own them all by adding their own unique twists to them. I’m going to be saving all of them and will try them out, but do you have a favourite from this list, do tell us know in the comments. Also, on a side note, hope you all are staying home, staying safe and booking your vaccination shots.
