With the world going digital in nearly every way imaginable, one of the best places to find inspiration as both a hairdresser and a client is Instagram. It's an easy and effective way to get your work out there as a stylist and a great way to market yourself to potential clients or employers within the cosmetology industry. Take a look at a list we've put together of the top 10 Instagram accounts we think all hairdressers NEED to follow (besides @toniguyusa, of course).
1. @thecutlife – 1.2m followers
This Instagram is for scissor happy hairdressers. This page shows a range of textured cuts in all different lengths although the majority of the photos posted on the account flaunt shorter cuts. It spotlights the hairdressers and clients who are in love with their hair, whether it’s natural or relaxed.

4. @jaymz.marsters – 45.8k followers
Attention-grabbing vivids are kind of this England-based hair colour wizard’s thing. Marsters pulls his inspiration from popular Japanese culture and incorporates futuristic concepts infused with his affinity for candy and cartoons to create his unique colours and effects. It’s clear that he is a born creator a pioneer in a new era of hair colour.
5. @andrewdoeshair – 127k followers
This guy’s scissor game is (literally) on point. An expert in scissor bald fades which is an astonishing skill in itself is all about creating cutting edge cuts that are unique and don’t necessarily follow all the rules. He’s also not afraid of a little blood (his own, don’t worry) by way of some insanely sharp scissors to get a client’s cut just right.
6. @ricardodinis – 13.3k followers
The Global Artistic Director for Aveda and the king of straight edged cuts, Ricardo Dinis creates unique bold cuts with some of the cleanest lines in the game.
7. @hairgod_zito – 298k followers
Take a leisurely scroll through his Instagram feed, you’ll realize that “hair god” is a very fitting nickname. It seems as though Hairgod_zito, aka Rickey Zito has rainbow hair down to a crazy beautiful science. From contrasting root colour blocked looks to perfectly melted multi-tonal hues, this colour connoisseur does it all and does it exceptionally well!
8. @mikeyyyyyyy_ – 64.1k followers
This bad boy hairdresser creates looks that match his personal style: Edgy. Dark. Undeniably cool. And that’s a grand total of 7 Ys, in case you were counting.
9. @behindthechair_com – 941k followers
This one is kind of a given. This list would not be complete without Behind The Chair, the largest online hairdresser community and hair industry magazine in the world. Their Instagram is an amazing way to get connected and get your work out to the rest of the hair industry and potential clients actively seeking a new hairdresser.
10. @jenatkinhair – 1.7m followers
