Let Your Zodiac Sign Guide You to the Haircut Trend to Try This Fall
Why spend hours, if not days, pondering your next haircut when you can let the universe decide for you? (We're not being sarcastic, we really mean it.) If you're an astrology-lover, chances are you already let your zodiac sign and monthly/weekly/daily horoscope guide plenty of choices you make, so what's one more?
Your zodiac sign can be a very telling thing — it reveals your strengths, your weaknesses, what your key personality traits are, and more. With this in mind, it's easy to understand how a particular sign can match up with a particular haircut trend for fall. Buzz cuts are bold and rebellious like an Aquarius, while textured layers with bangs scream carefree and fun-loving, which perfectly sums up Leos.
If you're contemplating what haircut trend to try this season, let the stars guide you by picking a hairstyle based on your zodiac sign.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Invisible Layers
As a Capricorn, your key personality traits include being ambitious, but also practical and realistic. You need a haircut that looks natural and fits your down-to-earth beauty vibe, like a cut so subtle, you can barely see it. "The term 'invisible layers' refers to removing weight and adding movement into a haircut while creating a finished look with minimal or no layers at all," Omar Antonio, hairstylist and global top artist for Sebastian Professional, told POPSUGAR.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Buzz Cut
A true rebel at heart like yourself should have a haircut that matches your bold personality — like a buzz cut. "Cutting it all off feels fresh and new," said Larry Sims, celebrity hairstylist and cofounder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The Shag
You're empathetic, creative, and romantic, meaning a retro-inspired shaggy haircut will fit your overall vibe perfectly. "Shaggy layered looks are for the more fashion-forward and will offer style without the need for constant upkeep," said Joseph Maine, celebrity hairstylist and cofounder of Trademark Beauty.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Curtain Bangs
As a fire sign, you're confident, passionate, and not afraid to make a statement. Therefore, pulling off curtain bangs should be a walk in the park for you. "Curtain bangs are making a comeback because of the '70s inspiration in the current fashion scene," said Michael Bowman, a stylist at NYC's Rob Peetoom salon. "A more modern twist would be to make the bangs a little shorter and textured in the center, so they can also be worn as a full textured fringe on days you want to change it up."
Taurus (April 20-May 20): The French Bob
Yes, Tauruses are best known for their stubbornness, but who said that had to be a bad thing? You need a powerful haircut to match your powerful personality, like the insanely chic french bob.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): The Clavicut
You're outgoing and adaptive but also indecisive. The clavicut is a collarbone-grazing style that is the best of both worlds: short enough to pass as a long bob, but long enough to hit your clavicle.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): The Lob
Cancers are compassionate and loving but also security-seeking. You're probably not one to go too bold with your hairstyle, so the lob cut is a good fit for you. "It [looks good on] all hair types and face shapes," said master hairstylist Edward Tricomi of Warren Tricomi Salons. "This cut features back strands resting on the nape of your neck with the face-framing strands dipping an extra inch or two until they kiss your collarbone — an edgy yet sophisticated hairstyle, all at the same time."
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Textured Layers With Bangs
You are creative and bold and enjoy being the life of the party — the haircut equivalent to that is textured layers with bangs. "This cut screams volume, carefree, and easy," Sims said.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Soft Blunt Bob
Creative, kind, and reliable are all words to describe you, but you also tend to be an overthinker. A fitting haircut for your personality is the tried-and-true soft blunt bob. "Shorter lengths will continue to reign with softer edges and more movement, but this year, bob haircuts will become softer and a little more grown out," celebrity hairstylist David Lopez said.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): One-Length Cuts
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pixie Cut
We can't think of a better haircut for an intense and seductive person like a Scorpio than the pixie cut. The extrashort length is chic, no-fuss, and daring.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Long Lengths
You're adventurous, fun-loving, and free-spirited but also minimalist and low-maintenance when it comes to your appearance. To you, a short haircut looks like more work in upkeep than it's worth. Long, butt-grazing lengths it is.
