From Which John Hughes Film Are You? quizzes to the popular Myers-Briggs test, we’re always trying to define and deepen our understanding of ourselves. Before all of these, people looked to the stars for guidance (and no, we don’t mean red-carpet celebrities!).
Whether it’s our careers or our love lives, the twelve zodiac signs give insight into our individual paths and personalities, both the brag-worthy and the opportunities for improvement.
Did you know that you can consult the constellations about your hair, too? A ‘do that’s on point can make the difference between a good or bad day, so help bring out the best of yourself with a shade and style that’s in sync with the sun and stars.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Can we just call you CEO Capricorn? You’ve been known to be a perfectionist with every single hair staying in place (how do you do that?), and people often look to you for guidance and leadership. As driven as you are, family always comes first, and you’ll always make time to braid your niece’s hair.
To help you stay fearless, get your hands on hair color that adds depth and dimension, whether you’re brunette, blonde, or auburn. Use your determination and grow those locks long. Your office strut will be that much more powerful. Or, try something new and unexpected with an asymmetrical bob… just try to resist trimming it back to even layers at home.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Oh airy Aquarius, how we envy your cool confidence, comic prowess, and knack for new technology. Your open-mindedness has earned you a loyal crew that loves basking in your fun-loving company, and they can usually find you marching in protest of injustice (if you’re not communing with nature in the mountains).
We know you love to keep up with the latest gadgets and trends, so experiment with a daring ‘do. Make a statement with dramatically darkened hair. Or, play up that cute smile with an edgy pixie that frames your face with fluttery tendrils.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Known to be quite the healer, people flock to compassionate Pisces for advice and warm hugs. After helping friends by lending an ear, you’re ready to dive into new creative projects or go dancing to build up those good vibes.
Use your sharp insight to pinpoint the most flattering trend, and treat yourself to a new hair color or style. Play up your naturally glamorous look with vibrant tones and don’t be afraid to own it. Or, frame your face with wispy layers that hint at your ethereal, dreamy side.
Aries (March 21 - April 20)
It’s no mistake that you’re one of the fire signs, awe-inspiring Aries. Ruled by the planet of energy and the mythological god of war, you were born to be fierce. You shine in the spotlight, and everyone wants you on their team (they certainly don’t want to be your opponent!).
Keep that energy positive by adding rich, vibrant tones to your luscious mane. They’ll showcase the depth and dimension you have in spades. Or channel that prima donna ballerina discipline and pull it all back into a sleek side bun for days when nothing should get in your way.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
Tasteful Taurus lives for the finer things in life. On your best hair days, you seek to satisfy all your senses—from sharing a wonderful meal with friends, to sleeping on a satin sham perfect for pillow talk, you love revelling in the lap of luxury.
Try something new to add exciting elements to your repertoire. Consider bangs to frame your graceful features. Or offset your chic coif with natural-looking color that almost sparkles in the sun with dimension to add a fun edge to your go-to elegance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You’re definitely a gem, Miss Gemini. Is there anything you can’t do? A Jill of all trades, you’re always on the move, planning the next great idea or adventure, and telling all your friends about it. Your fashion-forward outfits always complement your seemingly always-perfect hair.
Channel the duality of your star sign with a customized hair color routine that shifts from fiery to icy cool with easy changes of semi-permanent gloss. If you love long hair, ask for layers that flatter your features, or try a short cut that suits the shape of your face. Either way, the world will be your oyster.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Compassionate Cancer, your friends refer to you as the psychic mom of the group. If you’re not out searching for antique treasures, you’re at home cooking comfort food (or baking surprise treats) for those you love.
Remember to take care of yourself and your hair. Express the many facets of your personality with trendy ombre locks. When it’s time to shine the spotlight on your enchanting face, pull it back into a high ponytail.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You are known for your boldness, lionhearted Leo. Your heart is almost too big for your chest, and you leap to the rescue of your friends fearlessly. No wonder they praise you so much!
Own your wild side by letting your hair go free and untamed with a texturizing mist to create the coveted tousled look. Infuse your mane with golden tones, and—whether you’re a brunette, redhead, or blonde—you’ll radiate like a natural-born leader.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Even the virtuoso Virgo can use some guidance to gain peace of mind. Amplify your perfectionist nature by keeping things simple, so your wisdom shines through.
Embrace the concept of perfecting the little details by selecting a hue that’s close to your natural hair color with glints of complementary tones. Let your post-shower waves hang loose, even if just for one day to see how you like it. Discover the joy of unplanned beauty!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Ah, the ever diplomatic and noble Libra. You are always fair-minded, and friends come to you for judicious rulings in all matters. We could write a poem about your charm, which we’re sure you’d read and adore… if you hear us over the chorus of your admirers!
For a landmark change, try a rich, vibrant color just one shade deeper to convey the gravity of your personal style. Style hair with products that fight frizz while delivering hair care benefits that add softness and shine. You’ll be immeasurably happy with your look.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 22)
Mysterious and misunderstood, you’re drawn to uncover the hidden meaning in everything. You have a natural power and intensity that people find intriguing. Underneath it all, we know you’re secretly a sensitive Scorpio.
Invite the world in by brightening up your hair color, a little or a lot. You’ll still have people wondering about you as you go about your day looking ravishing. On days when you feel more reserved, tie hair into a loose braid and pair with that trademark enigmatic smile.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
Self-reliant Sagittarius, you inspire the people around you to find their own paths and feel optimistic. It may be all those travel snapshots you share on Instagram!
It’s hard for a bad hair day to bring you down, but even free spirits crave a little control. Tame frizz with a lightweight hair primer to add to any style you choose. Then declare independence from salon scheduling with home hair color that frees you up to live your life.
