Shoes for Hairstylists

Many of us spend time on our feet throughout the workday, but these lovely ladies take the cake! From cuts to color and everything in between, these fabulous hairstylists go the extra mile for their customers, and they need all the support they can get.

We spoke to Ryan McCann at PinUp Hair Emporium in San Rafael, CA, and Lauren Ramey at Elements McLean in McLean, VA to get their take on the best shoes for hairstylists!

“When I’m on my feet all day, it’s important I have supportive shoes that keep me focused on the job at hand,” says Ryan, who specializes in vintage-inspired edgy cuts and colors. She’s been in the business for 11 years with no intention of slowing down. “Vionic shoes have the support I need. They look on-trend and stylish. You’d never know I was wearing orthotic shoes.”



Across the country, Lauren co-owns a salon with her father called Elements McLean. The two have been working together for years, even through Lauren’s recent pregnancy! “The Orthaheel technology is keeping my plantar fasciitis from killing me at work,” she told us a few months ago.

Now that she’s given birth to her beautiful baby girl, Lauren still turns to Vionic for the support she needs throughout the day. “I never realized the damage I was doing to my feet by wearing flat, unsupportive shoes,” she said. “I bought three pairs of sandals for summer. I love to wear black because we work with so much color in the salon– it’s easiest to keep clean!”
