I’m always looking for an excuse to do my hair. Chop it, dye it, bleach it, fail to bleach it on my own in my bathroom, you name it. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a new ‘do, but maybe that’s the Aries in me talking. Speaking of which, I thought it’d be just the best excuse to blame dying my hair pink on what the ~stars~ had decided for me. Behold, your next big statement.


Aries (March 21 to April 19)

You’re pretty headstrong and like to make a statement, regardless of how subtle you think you’re being. (Psst… you’re not being subtle.) As a fire sign who’s ruled by Mars, it’s only right that you opt for a shade of red. Not feeling very Britney-Spears-look-three-from-Toxic? Run away with me and let’s dye it pink together. It’s in the family of red, so close enough.


Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

You’re a person who knows what they want and are loyal as hell. While you can be stubborn, you’re really just stuck in your ways, and that is by no means a bad thing. While you can play it a little on the safe side, you get a high from shaking things up. When you do, people notice. An ombré it is for you. Baby steps.


Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

You’re a special breed! I’ve never met a Gemini I didn’t love. You’re a curious, adventurous soul with a two spirits living inside of you (not trying to be a creepy witch, you’re literally the sign of the twins). You’re always changing your mind and flipping between interests and you need a hair color that can keep up with all of your back and forth. You represent joy and happiness, making the color of your sign yellow. A rich, honey blonde would be it for you; looking like a ray of sunshine with a shade that can work with any mood.


Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Hot summer babies, how ya doing? You’re a nurturing, sweet soul who genuinely enjoys taking care of those around them. Honestly, truly, bless your heart. You’re definitely on the sensitive side, but in this day and age, we could use more people with a soul, so embrace your emo. Though you’re on the verge of tears 60 percent of the time, you’re a strong person. Go out and dye your hair a deep chocolate brown. Mostly because dark hair looks fantastic with a tan.


Leo (July 23 to August 22)

Hello, little lion man. You are king/queen of the freakin’ jungle that is your life. You’re ruled by the sun so you’re literally a force of nature. You’re an intense human being… one might even say… dramatic? Due to your spotlight chasing ways, you need to make sure everything around you is louder than you need to be. For that reason, you’ve got to go platinum blonde. You’re failing the universe if you don’t.


Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

On the outside, you look sweet and innocent, but on the inside, you’re breaking down every little detail in front of you. You’re analytical but a softie, always there to lend a shoulder and to listen to your friend cry about the guy you explicitly told her not to hook up with anymore. You can be a little too critical at times, and when you are, it’s best to take a breather outside. You love the good ol’ outdoors and are ruled by Mercury. Your detail-oriented ways would know how to upkeep a grey-blue dye job, so maybe it’s worth looking into.


Libra (September 23 to October 22)

What a fabulous human being you are, Libra. You’re ruled by Venus and love all the finer things in life. You’re lavish, you’re beautiful and the world is yours. You can get anyone to do pretty much anything with your sweet personality, not to mention you’re quite the charmer. How did you get so astrologically lucky? You’re a social butterfly who loves being out in pretty places talking to pretty people for as long as the night allows. To compliment your regal ways, throw some shades of purple in your dark locks for a little pop of color that will only be caught by juuuust the right light.


Scorpio (October 23 to November 22)

F*cking Scorpios are really something, but you don’t need me to tell you that! You’re mysterious, powerful and a little bit insane, but in the best way. Everything about you is intense, from your sense of style to your personality. You’re fiercely loyal and do not take backstabbing lightly. It’s hard not to notice you when you enter a room; you really can command attention. For that reason, you can be a little M!SSUNDAZTOOD (P!nk reference, anyone?), but it’s okay! Who needs people and their judgement, anyway? Dye that hair of yours raven black and continue to instill fear in the hearts of many, Scorpio.

Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21)

I feel like 80 percent of everyone I’ve ever known is a Sag. All of those people are wonderful, loving creatures, which makes sense when your ruling planet is Jupiter, the happy planet. You’re a free-spirit who loves juggling a million things at once, have them be friends, activities or goals for yourself. You can’t help it, you just want to jump into something new! You’re also one to tell it like it is and though you may be harsh at times, people love you for it. Due to your noncommittal but adventurous lifestyle, it’s going to be a dark red color from me. But make sure it’s a temporary color.


Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)

I swear to God, every Capricorn I know could be President. Actually, I take that back, that statement really doesn’t say too much anymore. Let’s pretend I said that eight years ago. Know what I mean? They’re all powerful, brilliant, kick-ass people who are the best at whatever they do. They don’t have any time for games. Get that hair done to a nice caramel brown and carry on with your running-the-world business.


Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

You do whatever the hell you want and I respect that. You make your own path and are very much your own person, but you really thrive in a crowd setting. You’re a fresh-faced people-person who is popular without trying. What can you say? You just love putting yourself out there with people! To match your ever-so-bubbly personality, ask for a champagne-blonde color next time you’re at the salon.


Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

You’re full of ideas and love getting inside of your own head. You’re a creative type who enjoys an artistic escape, have it be through writing, dancing, film or music. You have a zest for life and are one compassionate being with a soft spot for helping others. You’ve been known to get in your feelings and can be very “woe is me” (Justin Bieber is a Pisces, so) but people know that just comes with the territory. To compliment the colorful part of your personality, go with a lilac color. Spice things up. Get the people talking. You love nothing more than some healthy attention!
