Have you ever wondered what the stars have to say about your hairstyle? At times, following trends might not be for everyone. Haircuts (like fashion, makeup, and a lot of other aesthetic factors) can say a lot about who you are, what you like and what your lifestyle is like.
And if you’re looking for a way to tell the world that you’re a Gemini (yes, I know you love that), then look no further than these hairstyles designed specifically to channel your best Zodiac energy. It took me a long time, but I curated this lovely guide to find the perfect zodiac sign hairstyles for this summer. So what are you waiting for? Check out what the stars are suggesting for your hot girl season!
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19) - The Money Piece Hair
Oh Aries! Sorry to say but sometimes it’s easy to mistake you for the crybaby of the Zodiac. But don’t worry, here I’m only going to mention your good characteristics… The perfect hairstyle for you is fiery; it has to make you feel like a superstar, and most importantly it has to let the world know that you’re a number 1.
This is why following trends and keeping up with celebrity-like looks is a good choice for you. Zodiac hairstyles can be a bit tricky when it comes to your fiery personality, but have you heard about the Money Piece hair? This look is both edgy and classy, flirty and playful, fashionable and modern but still winking at the divas of the 90s, where it originally comes from.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) - Expensive Brunette
When thinking about Taurians, a lot of zodiac and fashion experts easily get confused and go for the same, old, safe options. Whilst working on this zodiac chart hairstyles article I found out why: sometimes less is more - but it doesn’t mean it has to be outdated and plain. Thankfully, hair experts agree with me and they are constantly working to find new trends and innovate what we already know about hair and hair colours!
I really hope you’re into earthy, rich and deep tones my dear Taurus. In order to show how grounded, practical and classy you are, you will need to give a try to brunette shades. Whether you’re going for a silky lob (you should definitely try the glass hair trend!) or long, flowy tresses, make sure your hair colour is on point - with the right amount of undertones, so you don’t ever miss out on movement and depth.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) - Double Dutch Braids
Gemini! Popstar of the zodiac, queen of everything and social animal - the phrase “what she wants, she gets” was made for you, wasn’t it? So don’t be afraid of flexing long, fierce braids and show the world your war face. Well, not in the literal sense, but you get me.
If you’re still recovering from that trendy, 90s bob that everyone got last year, don’t fret: you can always add volume and length with clip-in hair extensions and make sure that everybody’s attention is on you. On a day in which your hair needs to carry the weight of your dreams and the endless possibilities that life offers you, braid your hair and… Game on!
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) - The Crown Braid
Cancer, being a summer child isn’t easy, I know. Perhaps spending majority of your birthdays home alone with your family as all of your friends were on holiday made you a bit of a lone wolf, but that doesn’t always mean that you have to keep it lowkey. There’s a lot of goodness in you to show, and what’s a better hairstyle to do it than the crown braid?
Also known as the milkmaid braid, this mediaeval hairstyle has protected millions of women over time. Easy to say that for this reason, this is a timeless classic… Just like you. Traditional, elegant and with a boho-chic vibe - if your hair doesn’t allow you to achieve this hairstyle, you can always do it with clip-in hair extensions. On top of that, if you own old hair extensions that you’re not using anymore, did you know that the crown braid is one of the 9 exciting things you can do with old hair extensions to give them a second life?
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22) - The Big Bouncy Blowout
I mean, this kind of goes without saying - you’re the lion of this roster, no? So what are you doing with your mane? As the Lannisters would say, hear me roar! It might be a stereotype, but usually hair is a big part of Leo's pride, so show it off! Retro trends and big bouncy blowouts are all the rage. Look at Matilda Djerf, the influencer and business woman that made this look her signature hairstyle!
Paired with face-framing bangs, you can easily achieve this hairstyle using jumbo velcro rollers or by curling your hair with a large barrel on your curling iron. Unless you were blessed with thick, luscious hair, you will inevitably have to add some volume and length to your mane with hair extensions. You can either get a full-head of double weft clip in hair extensions for maximum volume, or go for tape-in hair extensions for a more long-lasting effect.

6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22) - The Glass Hair Trend
Virgo, you love tidiness and orderly things so much - why don’t you apply it to our hair too? This silky, sleek hair trend has taken over the internet and can now be seen everywhere on social media - from TikTok tutorials to Instagram before and after videos. As more and more celebrities engage in this trend, it’s easy to see why it’s so alluring and how it can easily make any outfit look as classy as ever!
After reading what Chris Appleton had to say about this trend and how to get it at home, I decided to write an article about Glass Hair for Cliphair. You can also apply it to your hair extensions, so what are you waiting for? Grab your blow-dryer, your brush and… Your wallet - we’re going shopping for glass hair juice and heat protectant to obtain the sleekest look of the year.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22) - The Messy Bun
Libra, you’re characterised by balance and harmony and have a naturally classy vibe and an eye for the beauty in this world. Your pleasant aesthetic and the fact that you like surrounding yourself with authenticity, hearty meals and a tight-knit net of close friends says a lot about you. And let’s be real, you like to keep it simple and to be real to the world.
This is why it’s important for you to show the world that sometimes less is more. The messy bun has been deemed as a stay-at-home hairstyle for too long, and more and more people are finally acknowledging the unique artsy vibe of this hairstyle and how it can easily look classy and cosy even on a day out, at work or for a brunch date with your friends. You should give it a try!
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) - The High Ponytail
Oh well, aren’t you something to see, my lovely Scorpio? Passionate, mysterious, loyal… A deep thinker and a romantic character like yours cannot be seen with a basic hairstyle or a basic look, ever! If you’d like to spice things up a little, take it from the celeb world. The high ponytail will never, ever be boring (nor will you!).
If your natural ponytail doesn’t quite cut it, opt for a wrap-around ponytail hair extensions. You can literally clip it on your hair and style it in a matter of minutes; it can be worn high and fierce and low and elegant, or again tousled and puffy for a more playful finish. The world is your oyster, with a clip-in ponytail.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) - The Lob
Oh, to be a globetrotting Sagittarius in this world! Truly, this fiery fire sign (see what I did there?) doesn’t know any limits. There’s nothing a true Sag cannot achieve if they put their head and heart to it! For the woman on the go, this middle length haircut will be a real life-saver. Trendy, comfortable and versatile - just like you need everything in your life to be - the Lob can be styled in different ways and can allow you to play around with hair extensions and clip-in ponytails for a sudden change of head.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) - The Hair Shag
When it comes to organisation, planning and making business nobody knows better than a Capricorn. And to a Capricorn, one of the most valuable resources ever is: time. That’s why the hair shag is the perfect haircut for you!
As I was working out picking hairstyles based on zodiac sign, my immediate fear was to disappoint the fashion expectations of a Capricorn. But then I figured it out!
This style can be worn tousled and scruffy like a trendy, rockstar-like bedhead or curled up with the aid of flexirods to get romantic, nostalgic ringlets for a change. Save precious money and time with the hair shag!
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) - Curtain Bangs
Curtain bangs are everywhere on the internet, and it’s easy to see why. Not only is it one of Hollywood’s favourites, but it’s easy to style and works with pretty much every hairstyle you can think of. Which is perfect for an indecisive Aquarius.
The artists of the zodiac, aka the Aquarians, like to change, to experiment, to innovate and to test new limits.
They’re creative and have a natural love for knowledge and science, but they also dip a lot in fashion and trends (because there’s no way an Aquarian won’t try to express their creativity in the way they wear their hair and clothes too!) Therefore, curtain bangs are a powerful ally for someone that keeps on changing their haircut and hair colour.

12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20) - The French Braid
Pisces is an adorable sign, and I won’t apologise for saying that. Empathetic, romantic, emotional and driven by their love for someone, something or even somewhere - a Pisces woman is a woman that knows all about commitment and love, and she unapologetically expresses everything she feels on the inside.
Whether you’re going to run towards your loved one to be held in their arms or having a good cry at the end of a stressful week, the ideal hairstyle to do this in is a braided hairstyle. Not only braids are trendy and practical, but they’re also excellent protective hairstyles for you tresses. Do I have your attention?
