12 Arizona Influencers Worth a Follow in 2021
Updated: Aug 8, 2022
Instagram is dominated by whatever is current in pop culture, fashion, and beauty. But not all of us live in a state where that "must have teddy coat" can be worn more than 2 days out of the year. I often see Instagram influencers who live in warm states, like Arizona or Florida, wearing snow clothes when it's snowing in other states but 80 degrees outside so they can sell winter clothes to their out-of-state followers or keep up with the influencers in other, colder states. I also see a lot of Instagram influencers who live in warm states that build or renovate a home to look like a northern Vermont house, complete with snow pitched roofs, instead of the standard southwestern adobe or ranch.
After going through my Instagram feed, I realized I followed very few people from Arizona. This skews the content and algorithm to show me content that doesn't reflect the place I live. So in 2021, I've made an intentional move to follow more Arizona influencers. Below are 12 influencers on Instagram from Arizona who are making great content that I follow.

The photographer behind many "then and now" shots of Arizona, Rachel's content is the "americana" vibe I love.
