Planning on dyeing your hair anytime soon? Before you decide on a shade, we wanted to share the worst hair color for each zodiac sign.
We’re going based off of sun signs here, though you can also look at your rising and moon signs for which hair colors you should avoid. Ready to find out which color you shouldn’t dye your hair? Scroll below!
Aries (March 20 – April 19): Pink
Red is the best color for an Aries, there’s no denying that. While oranges and yellows also work, pink should absolutely be avoided. Though it’s basically a much lighter shade of red, it doesn’t suit the passionate, energetic personality of an Aries. It really will subdue the sign and dim their sparkle.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Red
While red is great for an Aries, it should be avoided by a Taurus. Taurus is a very stable and grounded earth sign, so earthy tones work best for them. Red is far too harsh for their practical personality. They’ll really stand out with this color, which isn’t something they enjoy. The sign prefers to blend in, so fiery red strands won’t make that possible.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Brown
Gemini is known for having quite the personality, which is often reflected in what they wear and how they style their hair. The mutable air sign is really one big ball of fun. They get a bad rap, but we sure do love ’em. All that to say, a basic brown hue should never be this sign’s go-to hair color. It’s too boring for their vibrant ways.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Gray
Being a cardinal water sign, Cancer tends to be very emotional. We all know this and so does the sign. What Cancer may not be aware of is that their personal style can deeply impact their mood. So dyeing their locks gray will make them moodier than anyone would like to deal with. Steering clear of this shade will save this sign in the long run.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Blue
Anyone with a Leo in their life knows they shine like the sun. Simply put, they’re radiant. Sunny, shiny hair colors work great for their confident personalities. Blue, on the other hand, will only subdue them. It’s a very demure shade for a sign that’s ruled by the sun itself. Not to mention, it’s a little too out there, as far as hair colors go, for this fire sign.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Orange
Virgo is the hardworking analytical of the zodiac. Orange is too bold for this earth sign. Much more common hair colors suit their practical nature. Anything too bold will leave them feeling out of sorts. If any Virgo in your life is thinking of going orange, talk them out of it.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Green
While Libra is a very sociable, fun-loving sign, bolder hair colors aren’t the best for them. Green is especially the No. 1 color the air sign should avoid. It won’t due them any good and will really throw off their balance, which won’t benefit a Libra at all. Sticking to more neutral colors is what’s best for a Libra.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Yellow
Not all Scorpios are the same, but they all tend to be pretty intense. And they like that. They enjoy parading around with is edgy, brooding demeanor. They’re not sunshine and rainbows by any means, which is why a Scorpio should avoid dyeing their hair yellow. Though it is intense, it’s too bright and cheerful for the water sign.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): White
Sagittarius has a warm and welcoming personality. They’re a very generous sign who loves to make people laugh. The fire sign is anything but icy, so obviously dyeing their locks white is a huge no-no. Sagittarius is too bold, daring, and blunt for that shade. You know it’s true.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Purple
Capricorn exists in a very black and white world. For that reason, more traditional hair colors tend to be more alluring for the earth sign. Any color this is loud won’t jell with their disciplined ways. This rings especially true for the color purple. Any Capricorn would surely feel unprofessional in this hue, which is a feeling they try to avoid at all costs.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Gold
An Aquarius often isn’t afraid to stand out. They tend to deviate from the norm and march to the beat of their own drum. While that seems like gold would be a great hair color for them, it’s not the case. Gold is too flashy, too showy, too gaudy for the air sign.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19): Black
For the sweet, empathetic zodiac sign of Pisces, black will do them no good. The hue is far too dreary and dark for someone with such an endearing disposition and positive outlook on life. Black will leave them feeling down and may unearth negative feelings.
