Amini was arrested on September 13 in Tehran for "improper dressing" and died three days later in hospital, sparking a wave of protests in Iran that have so far killed more than 130 people, according to human rights groups.

"Mahsa Amini was abused by the morality police until she died. She was only charged for wearing the veil in an inappropriate manner. She died because a few strands of her hair were visible," read the text accompanying the video on the Instagram profile posted by #soutienfemmesiran (Supporting the women of Iran).

The post quickly spread to other social networks.

"Women in Iran expect support from the international community. This is a nice way to show that support," he said Reuters the French lawyer Richard Cedillo, who initiated the action.

"This is only the first step, I hope that everyone in the world will follow it, not only the actresses but everyone." Men could also get a haircut, I think that will also happen," Cedillo added.

Lawyers, media personalities and other women in France followed the example of famous actresses.
