The astrology of 2022 so far has been a lot, and that’s putting it very gently. We had a Venus retrograde and a Mercury retrograde, but thankfully, every single planet right now is stationed direct. And we have an exciting illumination to look forward to—the full moon in Leo on February 16. “If you’re looking for a reason to finally make a major change to your look, the Leo full moon is it,” reveals celebrity astrologer Lauren Ash.
She shares that because this full moon is taking place in the fire sign of Leo, it’s “illuminating major themes of passion, creativity, and confidence. This moon cycle is a colorful one and will leave a lot of us looking to seriously switch up our style. When the Full Moon enters Leo it’s all about expressing our most authentic selves.” Before you grab the scissors or the dye, we had Lauren detail how each zodiac sign should change up their look. Scroll below for your complete full moon in Leo hair horoscope to get your salon appointment booked!

Aries (March 20 – April 19)
Time to switch up your look in an unexpected way, Aries. Lauren shares that “you’ve been working hard to keep things running smoothly. Now is the perfect time to get in touch with your wild side.” In order to do that, she suggests going for “a stylish shag and fringe combo to tap into your inner lion energy” this full moon in Leo.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As Lauren points out, you aren’t the most spontaneous sign, Taurus. You like familiarity and the Leo full moon this month will have you craving it even more. As far as style goes, Lauren shares that “you’ll want to spend this full moon in Leo at the salon getting your signature style touched-up. As one of the two Venus-ruled signs of the zodiac, you’ll be feeling more in touch with your self-care side this full moon cycle.”
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Are you ready for a blast from the past, Gemini? This full moon will have you feeling extra nostalgic and is “inviting you to reflect back on previous plans, dreams, and expectations.” Lauren suggests you use this time to “get in touch with your inner child by sporting a retro Y2K hairstyle for the next few weeks.” So grab your butterfly clips and scrunchies and let your inner child run free.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Before we get into your full moon in Leo hair horoscope, Lauren has something very exciting to share. “The full moon in Leo is illuminating your money houses, Cancer. Your hustle at work has brought some serious windfalls your way,” she exclaims. We love to see it. But, she also reminds you that it’s okay to splurge on yourself from time to time. And now is the best time to do so. “Treat yourself to a sweet, romantic blowout ahead of Valentine’s Day and you’ll enjoy luxurious volume and body all week long,” says Lauren.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
You already love the spotlight, Leo, but now is really the time to step into the limelight even more. The full moon is in your sign after all. “You’ve been feeling yourself lately and it’s time to let that confidence shine,” notes Lauren. “If there was ever a time to do something crazy, like finally get those bottleneck bangs you’ve been eyeing, now’s the time to take a bold and dramatic risk with your hair.” We can’t wait to see what you do!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
We know you’re a perfectionist, Virgo, but the full moon isn’t a fan of that. “This full moon is begging you to let go of the reins and truly take a risk,” shares Lauren. The best way to do that? “Call up your stylist and set an appointment with them to do whatever they want with your hair. If that feels too risky, you could try exploring some new styling products outside your usual routine.”
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Though now is a great time to switch up your look and try something different, Lauren stresses that it’s “important for you to keep things balanced.” So for your full moon in Leo hair horoscope, she suggests trying Korea’s rose brown hair color. “This gorgeous foil to rose gold and blush-tinted brunette shade is full of vibrant dimension, just like you, Libra!”
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
While some of the other signs are being asked to go bold during this illumination, it would be in your best interest to remain professional, Scorpio. “This full moon cycle is illuminating your career and work life,” says Lauren. “Though the craziness of last month may have you wanting to do something drastic, hold off for a bit. Now’s the time to choose a style that will impress the right people.” She suggests going with some sleek and trendy low bun hairstyles to give yourself that professional flair.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
You’re already an adventurous sign, but this full moon has you ready to dive off the deep end. Lauren says that it’s “asking you to break down the few remaining barriers you have. You’ll be feeling inspired to explore new and unexpected adventures this moon cycle.” This means going bold with your looks as well. Why not use this time to try the octopus haircut?
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Capricorn, now is the time to let go. You’ve been feeling it lately so use this full moon to release any unnecessary baggage that’s weighing you down. Lauren recommends going with a big chop during this period. “We already knew the chic bob haircut never went out of style but now is the perfect time to try one of a dozen stylish new bob variations we’re obsessed with,” she says.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Romance is in the air for you, Aquarius. As Lauren notes, “With the Full Moon happening in your sister sign of Leo, you’ll be feeling especially drawn toward your passions and partnerships. It’s time to embrace your sappy, romantic side this Valentine’s Day.” Still, we understand that you may want to remain somewhat rebellious and not give into traditional hairstyling norms. In that case, Lauren says you should rock a crimped hairstyle for the holiday.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19)
Lauren advises you to “expect the unexpected during this moon cycle, Pisces.” Things may feel a little out of sorts for you but Lauren knows how you should handle it. “If you’re looking for a way to make sense of the absurdity of this Leo full moon, consider making the ultimate IDGAF statement with a shaggy pixie cut. This cool girl cut will leave you feeling free to take on whatever the universe throws your way,” she says.
