January 20 - February 18
Happy birthday, Aquarius! Celebrate your season by switchin’ it up and trying something new – check out that new studio class at the gym, finally jet off to that vacay you’ve been dreaming about or venture out with a different style in your tresses. Whatever you do, make sure to plan, plan, plan – something a bit unexpected is on the horizon.
Mane Attraction: Remember that new hair style we mentioned? Try a soft blown-out look that captures your effortless Aquarius panache.
February 19 - March 20
Work and school feeling like a bit of a drag? Remember to take care of yourself while also progressing towards those #goals – just remember that it’s all about balance. Ace that presentation or exam and then hit the sheets for some much-needed zzzz’s.
Mane Attraction: That topknot suits you. Sneak in a blingy bobby in the back under that bun for an unexpected hit of style.
March 21 - April 19
That cloud that’s been following you around these past few months? It’s finally on its way out so get ready for some fun in the sun! You can let loose so schedule some time with the girls, they’re going to be beyond thrilled to see that beautiful face of yours!
Mane Attraction: Aries, you’re always so adventurous so try out that fishtail braid you’ve seen your favorite It-Girl sporting. Pro tip – start with a clear elastic to keep hair in place and then snip it when you’re done. You’re welcome.
April 20 - May 20
Your flight to girls’ weekend maybe a bit delayed – like a few things this month. Don’t let others’ tardiness get you down; thankfully, you’re known for being the patient one. You know what they say about preparation? Major key.
Mane Attraction: Drape your front layers behind your ears and pin for a romantic, effortless look. Run a large-barrel iron through the ends and you’re golden.
May 21 - June 20
You have a lot on your plate this month. Just remember, compromise is your friend. You’re only one person and there’s 24 hours in a day – no matter how hard you try to fit in 25! Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was Beyonce.
Mane Attraction: Try something a little different this month – a sleek, straight style with a middle part is ever the classic choice. Use a straightener to define the ends and finish off with a matte pomade to control flyaways.
June 21 - July 22
You can see a good opportunity from a mile away while others may not be able to look that far. Keep your wits about you and always listen to that Cancer intuition. It’s (usually) never wrong!
Mane Attraction: Done right, a high pony is youthful and elegant. Wrap some hair around the elastic and leave the ends straight for a graceful sway.
July 23 - August 22
Avoiding an awkward convo with someone in the fam? Time’s running out and eventually, you’re going to have to face each other. Stick to your guns while also maintaining kindness – use this as an opportunity to acknowledge the good that you love about them while identifying the conflict. Kill ‘em with that Leo charm!
Mane Attraction: Messy waves are easy but so effective, especially when they’re a little lived-in. Spruce up second-day hair with a couple of curls with a 1 ¼” barrel and then run some dry shampoo through with a touch of sea salt spray and just like that, you’re Gigi.
January 20 - February 18
Accept that you and bae will never agree on that one thing, it’s not worth the constant battle. Learn to receive their side of things while staying true to your own ideals, just don’t let it be a deal-breaker. Why? Because by the end of the month, you’ll both have more clarity.
Mane Attraction: A thick, braided pony takes you from gym to happy hour with the girls in a snap. The key is making sure the braid is the star of the show so keep it sleek in the front and pull hair into a high pony. Add some texturizing spray before braiding, making sure to gently pull at the pieces to give it a fatter, more full appearance. Secure with a small elastic and you’re ready to conquer that spin class.
September 23 - October 22
Feeling like you just can’t keep keepin’ on anymore? Grit your teeth and just ride it out - this feeling is only temporary, we promise. Accept that the situation is out of your control but everything will go back to normal very soon.
Mane Attraction: You’re known for being a vixen, so let your hair follow suit. Soft waves with a deep side part matches your flirtatious ways. Give yourself an easy blow-out with a round brush, making sure to pay close attention to the ends. Move your part to the side and tuck behind the ear. Such a glamazon!
October 23 - November 21
The unknown has always given you the creeps but it also gives way for some excitement this month. Yes, it will seem daunting at first but it’ll reinvigorate some, shall we say, more stale parts of your life.
Mane Attraction: Give your hair a romantic feel; throw in some curls with a 1 ¼” barrel from mid-shaft to the ends then tousle strands with your fingers. Part down the middle and sweep the hair around behind your head and cross where they meet. Secure with some bobby pins and pull out some shorter layers around your face.
November 22 - December 21
It’s the month of love and Cupid has his eye on you, girl! Be open to meeting someone special, or at least flirting with someone special, and you’ll realize that it’s fun on the lighter side of life. Loosen up, don’t take things too seriously.
Mane Attraction: Keep it smooth and glossy with a ton of volume for a straight, defined look. Blow out some volume to avoid limpness and finish with some oil on the ends to nail down that editrix style.
December 22 - January 19
You’ve been killin’ it at work, you finally nailed that promotion and…now what? Develop a financial plan to continue your successes into the future. Don’t forget to ask for help where you need it but be ready to accept it when it comes. Keep it up, Cap!
Mane Attraction: You’re always the practical one so we get that you want to keep it simple but consider switching it up a bit. How about throwing an unexpected upside down braid on the back of a topknot? The key is to braid with your head upside down, gathering hair on the crown. Once you get to the middle of the head, gather on top and secure with an elastic. So easy but so Instagram-worthy.
