Feeling a bit more secretive and sexier than usual? Blame it on Scorpio season. The sun has officially entered the water sign and things are about to get intense, emotional, and did we mention sexy? There’s a lot going on this season, what with the eclipses and Mars retrograde shaking things up a bit. Because we aren’t exactly astologers, we can’t tell you precisely what to expect—but we do like to consider ourselves hairstrologers, meaning we know a thing or two about how astrology pertains to your hair. To celebrate our beloved Scorpios this season, we put together a Scorpio hair guide that covers the best haircuts, hair colors, hairstyles, and more for your zodiac sign. Scroll below for all the inspo you need!
Best Haircuts for a Scorpio
Because your sign tends to be intense and a bit secretive, we’ve rounded up a few haircuts for your zodiac sign that exude these qualities. Some make a bolder statement than others, but they all play highlight to your creative side.
An undercut is the perfect haircut for you, dear Scorpio, because it is equal parts secretive and creative. You can have fun with the design, while also keeping it hidden when you want to keep that side of you hidden.
Fringe of every variety is perfect for your sign, though we had to personally recommend vamp bangs. They have “I’m a Scorpio” written all over them. Plus, not many people would be bold enough to try them on for size, except for you.
As the ruler of the 8th house (which pertains to birth, death, sex, transformation, mysteries, etc.), you tend to experience transformative periods more often than most. You’re likely to reinvent yourself every few months going through a continual death-rebirth process. When you’re in that “death” phase, opt for a buzz cut. This daring chop will give you the blank canvas you need to start all over.
There are many layers to you, Scorpio—just like an onion, as Shrek would say. A short, layered bob will satiate your need for stability—you are a fixed sign after all. While the cut is dependable, it won’t ever turn out exactly the same every time, giving you room to play with it.
Best Hair Colors for a Scorpio
You’re alluring, sultry, and sometimes emotional—you need a hair color that balances your multifaceted personality. Darker shades always work, though don’t be afraid to have fun with some color.
We know you were expecting it, but jet black really is the ultimate hair color for a Scorpio. It is one of your lucky colors after all. And given you’re ruled by Pluto, the planet of death and god of the underworld, it just makes sense.
Because you are a very passionate sign, have some fun with a red hair color. We’d suggest going with the sultry red velvet because it taps into your mysterious nature but is also a bit playful.
Two-tone shades are a fun way for you to show off your creativity. We particularly like the skunk hair trend because there are so many ways to create this look. You’ll still hold onto your individuality while partaking in a trend so no, you won’t be considered a sell-out, Scorpio.
For those who don’t want to go all the way black (we don’t blame you), why not try a dark blue? In some lighting, it’ll still look black, but you get a fun pop of color thrown into the mix.
Best Hairstyles for a Scorpio
As the transformative sign you are, it doesn’t feel right telling you the best hairstyles for your sign because you theoretically could rock any style you like—but, we know a few that work for every type of Scorpio out there. Just know that these aren’t the end-all-be-all as far as hairstyles go.
We picked the bubble braid simply because it looks like a scorpion’s tale. See what we did there?
There’s something so sleek and sexy about a wrapped ponytail. This style is perfect for date night or even a night out with friends.
Not every single one of you likes slick styles and that’s A-okay with us. For those of you who want to rock your natural texture, do it. We’re all about the bedhead style for Scorpios.
Side braids feel fairly secretive, given you can only see them from one side. They’re a fun way to add some dimension to an otherwise boring hairstyle without needing to venture too far outside your comfort zone, Scorpio.
Best Hair Accessories for a Scorpio
Of course, this Scorpio hair guide wouldn’t be complete without some hair accessories for your zodiac sign. Some will help you create the looks above and others are more practical necessities you’ll use no matter what.
A good flat iron is a must for you, Scorpio. When your hair isn’t tousled, you like it to be stick-straight. We suggest investing in the Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener. While the price tag is high, it’s so worth it to get the sleekest hair possible. Not to mention, it travels well with its cordless design.

Small Elastic Hair Ties
For hairstyles like the bubble braid, side braids, and even the wrapped ponytail, small elastic hair ties will come in handy to secure these looks. This jar from Amazon comes with over 2,000 elastic hair ties so you won’t run out…well, at least not for a while.

Strong Hold Hairspray
To ensure whichever style you go with stays put all day and night, you need a strong hold hairspray in your hair care arsenal. We’re fans of the Aveda Firmata Firm Hold Hair Spray because it offers an extra-strong style control in a non-aerosal formula.

Let’s be honest, you’re going to cut your hair at home whether we tell you to or not, Scorpio—we know you. When you’re in that transformative period and what to shave your head, at least use a good pair of clippers. That would be the Wahl Elite Pro High Performance Hair Clipper Kit.
