It’s that time of the month again—a new moon! Each new moon signifies change and fresh starts. It can relate to a new project, fresh goals and obviously, transformed hair! The new moon in Aquarius, particularly, can incite feelings of rebellion and spontaneity. In other words, this could be just the push you need to take on that bold chop or go for that vibrant hue.
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Brave, outspoken Aries—nothing can affect your stature. You speak your mind and don’t hold back. Let your hair match that sharp tongue with sharp, blunt lines of the Mia Wallace bob (with or without fringe). With the new moon in Aquarius, now’s your time for razor sharp edges.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
Now’s the time for your stubbornness to take a backseat, Taurus. Let go of control and allow yourself to breathe freely. The Aquarian moon is the time to play with texture. Add some layers or style your hair with a dry texture spray to zhuzh it up a bit.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Oh Gemini, your playful personality will thrive under the Aquarius moon. Let your inner child explore your surroundings. Shaggy layers polished off with a hair cream and strong hold hair spray for a piece-y look is your next adventure.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Forever a trendsetter, you’ll try anything once, Cancer. You have a take-it-or-leave-it charm that makes heads turn, leaving the rest of us wanting more. Undone beach waves and a boho braid for an accent piece pays homage to your moonchild sign, while embracing the no-holds-barred vibes of the new moon in Aquarius. Now’s the time to set yourself free. Pro tip: Use a dry texture spray to help hold a braid or accessory in place.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
“You have the heart of a lion” is not just a saying, Leo. You have an abundance of generosity and love to give. Your heart is larger than life and your hair should match it, too—especially at this time of year. Pump up the volume with an at-home blowout for your next night out.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Practical, efficient and thoughtful, Virgo, you’re the most meticulous when it comes to perfection. But your rebellious side will come out to play during the new moon. Go for fierce, sleek and textured ponytails that are smooth and glossy in the front. Additionally, textured, voluminous high ponies at the crown will fit the mode this month.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
You love taking your time and living with intention, leveled Libra. Harmony and peace in perfect balance is your bread and butter. Long and glamorous is your hair mantra. Continue keeping your locks glossy and strong—but don’t be afraid to shake things up with fresh layers or temporary color no one will expect.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
You have an air of mystery about you, dear Scorpio. But also fiercely passionate and unwaveringly loyal, once you have your heart set on something, nothing holds you back. You’ve wanted to make a bold move for a while now, but have been waiting for the extra push to do so. Let the new moon in Aquarius be just the nudge you need. It’s fringe time and you know it. Blunt, curtain or wispy, no more excuses to make the change.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
You have a reckless curiosity about you, Sag. You love making radical decisions, and love to live in the present. Your indecisive personality will leave you with one foot out the door. Bold, contrasting money piece highlights match your zealousness—this time of year more than ever!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
Wonderfully ambitious and determined Capricorn, you’re ruthless when it comes to achieving your goals. Nothing is off limits with you, that includes haircuts. A pixie cut to you is what a power suit is to the woman in the corner office. Embrace change under the light of the new moon in Aquarius. You’ve got this.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
This is your time to shine, Aquarius. Your innovative spirit and love of the unconventional gives you freedom to do as you please. Statement color is a thing in 2022, but it’s not for the faint of heart. From bold, high-contrast, face-framing highlights, to more electric orange, pink and periwinkle shades, the spotlight is on you, Aquarius. Make your move!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Awaken your inner artist under the new moon, dear Pisces. You naturally let your emotions run deep and hold on to past feelings. Open your heart and let your creativity free. This is your time to embrace that new hair color you’ve been pondering. Keep it warm and golden, whether it’s a blonde, red or brunette.
What you do on the new moon is your business, but HERE‘s why you should never cut your hair on the full moon!
