INVESTAR HOLDING CORPORATION
POWER OF ATTORNEY

THE UNDERSIGNED hereby appoints the Corporate Secretary, any Assistant Corporate
Secretary, and the Chief Accounting Officer of Investar Holding Corporation (the
"Company") (individually, an "Agent"), each with the power to act individually,
as the Undersigned's true and lawful attorney-in-fact, possessing the power and
authority as follows:

                To execute for and on behalf of the Undersigned, in the
                Undersigned's capacity as an officer or director of the Company
                and the Bank, Forms 3, 4, and 5 in accordance with Section 16 of
                the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange
                Act");

        ii.     To do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the
                Undersigned that may be necessary or desirable to complete and
                execute such forms, to complete and execute any amendments
                thereto, and to timely file such forms and amendments with the
                Securities and Exchange Commission and any stock exchange or
                similar authority; and

        iii.    To take any other action in connection with the foregoing
                matters, which may be in the best interest of or legally
                required by the Undersigned, it being understood and agreed that
                the documents executed by the Agent hereunder shall be in such
                form and shall contain such terms and conditions as the Agent
                may approve, in such Agent's discretion.

By execution below, the Undersigned hereby further grants to the Agent full
power and authority to do and perform any and all acts requisite, necessary or
proper to be done in connection with the exercise of the specific power and
authority granted herein, as the Undersigned might do if personally present,
with full power of substitution or revocation, hereby ratifying and confirming
that any and all such substitutes shall be empowered to do and exercise the
rights and powers granted herein.

By execution below, the Undersigned acknowledges that neither the Agent, whether
appointed or substituted hereunder, nor the Company is assuming any of the
Undersigned's obligations to comply with Section 16 of the Exchange Act, and
that each Agent is serving hereunder solely at the request of and for the
convenience of the Undersigned. The Undersigned further agrees that this Power
of Attorney shall remain in force and effect until the Undersigned is no longer
subject to the reporting requirements imposed under Section 16 of the Exchange
Act with respect to holdings and transactions in the Company's securities, or
until earlier revoked by delivery of written notice of revocation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Undersigned has caused this Power of Attorney to be
executed and effective as of the date set forth below:
