The new year has already started off with quite the bang, and not in a good way. The pandemic is raging, everyone’s getting sick, and we’re all likely feeling a little burnt out at this point. Such is life under capitalism, right? To give you something to look forward to this year, we spoke with celebrity astrologer Lauren Ash of Lauren Ash Astrology, who revealed the best dates to update your look in 2022. There’s a lot going on astrology-wise this year, so you don’t want to opt for a dramatic hair change when it won’t work out in your favor. Read on to discover when it’s safe to make updates to your look in 2022!
Best Dates to Update Your Look in 2022
February 4, 2022
Venus retrograde and Mercury retrograde will both be over by this point so you’re pretty much in the clear to do whatever you want to your hair. “If you can put off that Valentine’s Day spa day until February 4, do it,” Lauren says. “Mars in Capricorn will be sextile Jupiter in Pisces. This energy brings direct communication and good judgment that should allow you to be successful. If you’re looking to make a bold change to your look at the start of the new year, mark this date on your calendar.”
April 12, 2022
Lauren notes that there’s a “Jupiter and Neptune conjunction in Pisces” on this date, which is “the defining transit of the astrological year.” Because of this, she points out that “we’re feeling very dreamy, creative, expansive, and romantic. Everything seems a little brighter moving into the summer months. This is the time to take a chance on that fun, new hairstyle you’ve had saved on your vision board.” Make an appointment with your stylist now before you forget.
July 16, 2022
On this day, “Mercury conjuncts the sun in Cancer, which will bring a serious but warm vibe to our personal relationships.” Lauren notes that “we’ll be seeking out the people and places that make us feel safe to express ourselves. This might be the time to go back to your natural color or revisit an old hairstyle you loved.” A little blast from the past, we love to see it.
October 22, 2022
There’s an exciting transit happening on this date so we’ll let Lauren elaborate. “Venus creates a Venus Star Point in the sign of Libra (the moment when the sun aligns with Venus), which happens once every 12 months,” she notes. “Your self-love energy is majorly reflected back to you at this time. Many of us will feel in touch with our beauty and appearance. This is a great day for self-pampering or getting a trim ahead of Halloween.”
December 9, 2022
“Venus in Sagittarius is square Jupiter in Pisces,” Lauren says. “With both of these placements being heavily influenced by the planet of luck, good fortune, and attraction, this is the perfect time to get crazy with your color. This is the time to make a big change while you can because Mercury will return retrograde in serious earth sign Capricorn on December 29, 2022.” You don’t have to tell us twice.
