If there’s anything we learned in 2020, it’s that there’s so much in life we can’t control. Yep, last year was a doozy, and it’s time to change things up in the year that lies ahead. The hair risk to take in 2021 is at your fingertips, and it may just be one of the only things you can guide in the year to come.
Depending on when you were born, you have just the look for you. Keep reading for the hair risk to take in 2021, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Bleach Your Hair and Add Dark Roots
Aries, your bold sign is all about making a statement. You’re not one to hold back in any aspect of your life, and an edgy new ‘do is just what you need to live up to the Aries we all know and (try to) love (we kid… kinda). We think no look will help you make your mark quite like bleach locks with dark roots. We’re thinking very Kristen Stewart 2020 vibes here.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Add Bold Color Dimension Into Your Natural Hue
A grounded creature of habit, it’s not like you to make bold moves, Taurus. With that said, no one’s expecting a 180 from you in the hair department this year. But you can still take risks without going unrecognizable. Take your traditional hue and spice it up a bit with some bold high or lowlights to add some needed dimension to your look.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Try Peekaboo Highlights
Gemini, you’re a fun-loving individual who wants to dip your hands in everything, but can’t just can’t commit. You take flack for being so indecisive in all aspects of your life—and hair is no exception! Peekaboo highlights are just your jam because at some points, your hair will look like one solid color. Then, depending on how you move around or style your strands, there can also be a bold appearance of a highlighted hue.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Cut Curtain Bangs
Bangs are a risky move for anyone. Depending on your face shape and how the bold look is styled, they can be a big mishap. But given your romantic, delicate disposition, curtain bangs are your calling, sensitive little Cancer. Like you, they’re dainty and light, yet hold an impressive presence. Unlike things that easily cause a Cancer pain, these are almost guaranteed not to flop because they’re easy to restyle if you aren’t into their intended look.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Go Big!
Leos don’t enter a room quietly, and this year it’s time to let your hair make all the noise. Mighty Lion, go big or go home. Take those luscious locks and either curl them to perfection or air-dry or wear as is. Whatever you do, big hair is your hair risk to take in 2021. Make it count!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Get Bold Lowlights
Virgo, you’re known to stick to the tried and true, so we get how hard it is for you to even consider a hair change. You’re much more about practicality than prominence. You go with what you know—but 2021 is your year to change it up, even if you do it mildly. Getting bold lowlights is just what you need to kick things up a notch, while sticking to the base shade you know and love.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Get Extensions
Long and luscious is the name of your game, Libra. As a lover of all things beauty, it only makes sense you emulate the looks of your fellow scale, Kim Kardashian. Sew in some extensions and whip your hair back and forth. This look is hands-down your hair risk to take in 2021.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Lighten Things Up
Dark and dreary is your disposition of choice, Scorpio—but given the way of the world the last couple of years, this is the time to go a little lighter. Whether it’s a subtle highlight or a feathery trim, it’s time to give your heart a break. You hold on to a lot of tension, dark Scorp; loosen some of it with a airy new ‘do.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Do a Bold Chop
Free-spirited Sag, 2020 had your wanderlust-ful self feeling locked away due to the pandemic. And quite frankly, who knows if things will be any different in 2021? Therefore, let loose in ways that are in your control. Doing a bold chop will be just the release you need to get out of your stagnant rut, keeping you fresh in the unpredictable months to come.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Switch-Up Your Part
You have far concerns than anything having to do with your hair, practical Cap. When you’re itching for change in your life, it’s definitely more in terms of your career than your tresses. Either way, it couldn’t hurt to hop on a hair risk in 2021—even if that means doing something subtle. Switching-up your part is ideal for you. It requires no maintenance, and if you’re over it, you can instantly switch to something else.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Play With Pastels
You’ve never been one to care about what people think, exploratory Aquarius. This is the year you’re destined to finally take the plunge and give yourself the pretty pastel hair makeover you’ve always wanted to try. If worst comes to worst and you don’t love it as much as you thought you would, no one’s going to see you right now anyway, so you have time to fix it up.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Go Au-Naturel
It’s no secret that you can get, ahem, lazy, wildly imaginative Pisces. With your head up in the clouds much of the time, it doesn’t always leave room to doll yourself up when it comes to your ‘do. But that’s ok. Instead of forcing effort when you’d much rather chill, we say you embrace your natural, air-dried locks and make it a whole look, instead of throwing your hair up in a boring, messy bun time and time again.
