30 Female Hairstylists You Should Be Following

In the era of the #MeToo movement, it seems as if this year's International Women's Day holds more weight than those that came before. And, on a day that's all about empowering women and recognizing their strength, I'm especially grateful for social media, where an overflow of strong, influential and inspirational women are only a click away. 

To honor the day, and shed light on a group of ladies who inspire us and others, we rounded up 30 female hairstylists that you should be following on Instagram. From talented stylists, to colorists and salon owners, these ladies have a strong social presence, share a ton of beautiful work and inspire others in the process. Let's hear it for the girls!
