If you’ve ever envied the way some people can pull off the trickiest styles effortlessly, you’re not alone. And if you’ve had second thoughts about trying the look yourself, there’s a solid reason for that.
Weirdly enough, when we were born plays a big role in styles that fit us best. Just because your pal pulls of a pixie doesn’t mean you’ll feel confident doing the same—and vice versa for a look you’ve managed to master.
Keep reading for the perfect hairstyle for you, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Classic Pixie
There’s no one busier in the zodiac than Aries! The energetic fire sign is legitimately always on the go (and very much by choice). That said, the last thing they need is extra getting-ready time tacked on to their very busy day. A classic pixie will help them essentially roll out of bed ready to go. Well, not so fast—an Aries still loves making a noticeable splash, so even though this look will take less time than some others, diligent Aries will still style it to perfection to be presented at its best.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Shoulder-Length, Straight-Across Bob
Grounded Taurus knows when to take risks—and when to go with what’s tried and true. And when it comes to hair, their motto is, “If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.” A shoulder-length, straight-across bob looks good on literally everyone, so if hair is one less thing this sensible sign has to worry about, then they are all for it!

Indecisiveness is part of a Gemini’s charm—but how can we blame a sign who wants to have their cake and eat it, too? Luckily for this finicky sign, there’s just the hairstyle for them. The half-up, half-down look let’s them do partial flirty pony, and partial long locks. A win-win if we must say so ourselves! View this post on Instagram
