January 20 - February 18
Remember when you promised yourself that you were going to spruce up your house and spend more time with family as your NYE resolution? Yeah, you should start thinking about that again. Consider why you made yourself that goal and use it as motivation to stay focused. Just make sure you have the time and resources to devote to it – the end result will be amaze.
Mane Attraction: Love the look of those big barrel waves but hate how much time it takes? We totally feel you. A rounded hot brush is so easy peasy and the curls you can get are totally maje. Brush through the hair, making sure to use rounded C motions and wrapping hair around the barrel as you reach the ends. The result will be soft curls full of bounce and body.
February 19 - March 20
Feeling like you’re being pulled in a hundred different directions lately? It’s not just you, there’s really a lot being asked of you right now. Take it one step at a time and don’t be scared to ask for help or, even more difficult for you, independent Pisces, don’t be scared to accept help when it’s offered.
Mane Attraction: You’re busy right now. The topknot is the girl-on-the-go’s best friend and you’re no exception. Spray some dry shampoo in all over hair and messily gather at the crown. Pin with bobbies and lightly tug for an undone look. Spray with a light-hold hair spray and you’re one and done.
March 21 - April 19
Happy birthday season, Aries! It’s your time to shine, just keep in mind that you should be prepared to think on your feet at that presentation you have coming up. Prep for rapid fire questions. While we’re talking about all of your successes, keep an eye on your dolla, dolla bills this month; it’s true that you’ve put away plenty of padding in the bank but let’s just keep it that way, okay big spender?
Mane Attraction: Flat waves are all the rage and not just because you can whip them up in a snap, either. Step into Spring with these ‘S’ bends by feeding 1-inch section of hair into your flat iron and twist your wrist away from your face, creating tension with the hair over (not under) the iron. Slide the iron about two inches down and flick your wrist so the hair is now under the iron. Continue alternating directions and spritz with a light-hold spray for IRL sea-inspired mermaid waves!
April 20 - May 20
Pragmatic Taurus, feeling a bit charitable this month? Your kindness will be returned to you in dividends, just be careful not to let others understand the vastness of your wealth; some things are better left unsaid! That light at the end of the tunnel you keep seeing? You’re THIS CLOSE to it – keep going, girl!
Mane Attraction: Show off your tresses while embracing one of Spring’s biggest trends – twisted, piecey styles! Start by grabbing two large pieces of hair in front of the ears and loosely twist away from the face. Pin in the back with bobby pins for a style that’s equal parts Juliet and Gigi.
May 21 - June 20
The seas have been a bit choppy with bae lately but it’s nothing a little QT can’t fix. Communicate heartfelt emotion and your SO will hear you loud and clear. Also, that hurdle is actually just a little baby speedbump – hop, skip and jump right over it!
Mane Attraction: Soft waves are so in for Spring. Start by curling hair, haphazardly alternating curls facing away and towards the face. Twist hair before curling for lived-in bends that screams I-woke-up-like-this. Finish off with a medium-hold spray.
June 21 - July 22
It’s time to buck up, Cancer! They don’t understand why you’re so focused on that goal but in time, your work will speak for itself, per the usual. Confronting conflict is cringe-worthy, yes, but sometimes very necessary. Just don’t get too worked up, not that we worry about that with you, cool-as-a-cucumber Cancer.
Mane Attraction: Keep it simple but elegant with a low pony that’s perfect for running from the office to happy hour. Straighten strands with a 1-inch flat iron and spritz hair with a shine spray. Create a side part and sweep hair back into a pony, keep it low on the nape of the neck. Tie with an elastic and wrap a small piece of hair around the elastic and pin. Voila – tres chic tresses!
July 23 - August 22
We get it, rarely are the opinions of others’ worth a listen. This time though, someone that you consider #lifegoals is trying to help you. Do yourself a favor – LISTEN! It’s an uncomfortable topic but you’ll thank them later.
Mane Attraction: Spring is the best time to try something outside of your comfort zone. Give yourself a show-stopping style by curling hair and sweeping into a half-up pony just above the ears. Keep it piecey and tug hair at the crown to give it a lived-in look. Secure a small piece of hair around the elastic for an additional touch of glam.
January 20 - February 18
All that hustle you’ve been busy grinding away at has finally paid off and you’ve nabbed that job of your dreams. Congratulations! Now you’re going to have to put some of that girl-time on the backburner – but only for a bit as there are lots of new job-related responsibilities in the pipeline. There’s only 24 hours in a day and you need your beauty sleep, girl! Just remember, it’s all about balance.
Mane Attraction: Keep it simple this month and embrace those gorgeous natural curls of yours! Brush through a curl defining serum with a wide-tooth comb and use your ionic dryer with the diffuser attachment. Apply a shine serum and watch those heads turn!
September 23 - October 22
Feel like things are getting a little comfortable with you and your SO? There’s nothing wrong with that. You’re totally 100% yourselves with one another and that’s incredible – kudos to you both for building that! Rekindle the spark with your fun-loving side that everybody loves. You two little lovebirds, you!
Mane Attraction: You are always #hairgoals, friend! Surprise ‘em by keeping those locks bone straight with a deep side part. So chic, so simple and yet, so beyond stunning.
October 23 - November 21
You’ve got a plan up that delicate sleeve of yours and we like it! With creativity and inspiration oozing out of your pores this season, you’re poised to manifest innovation at work and at home. Think it through and keep your eye on that prize. It’s just about to be yours.
Mane Attraction: What’s better than bouncy big-body curls? You’re jonesing for a change and we’ve got it for you! Using your rotating iron, wrap a 1-inch section around the barrel, making sure that hair is flat against the surface for more defined curls. Wrap towards the face for extra drama and brush through with a paddle brush. Sexy Scorpio strikes again!
November 22 - December 21
Whatever you do – JUST. STAY. CALM. Yes, there are a lot of fires this month for you to put out but there’s a reason that burden has been placed on you – you’re always the one to keep things in line and in order. Take it slow and methodical, slow and easy wins the race. Rethink any sudden changes this month, it might be just a bit too much for you to juggle.
Mane Attraction: Double Dutch braids are so cute this season and not just for the gym. If anyone can pull of this style, it’s you, Sag! Part down the middle and braid starting at the crown. Spray with a dry shampoo for extra grit and hold and tie with a clear elastic. We want this to look more polished than undone so spray with a max hold hair spray and head out the door.
December 22 - January 19
You’re very persuasive, Cap – use it to your advantage this month! People around you trust that projects or causes that you’re involved in are legit so ask for the help and support that you need, and you shall definitely receive.
Mane Attraction: Bohemian style suits you so well! Run a texturizing spray throughout your hair for volume and grit and create some bends in the hair for additional texture with your favorite styling tool. The messier the placement, the better. And you want to keep this undone, so leave the ends out and focus on the shaft of the hair. Throw on that flower crown you saved for #festivalseason and you are set for fringe, lace and an arm full of wristbands.
