While horoscopes and astrology are popular for explaining different facets of personality and the future, they can also be used to help guide one's hair care and styling choices. Factors such as your astrological sign and the position of the moon can help determine which style would work best for you and the best time to get a haircut.
First Quarter Moon
The first quarter moon occurs when the moon begins to move away from the sun and lasts for about a week. Because hair growth slows during this time, it is a good opportunity to refresh your look with a slight trim without losing much of your hair's length.
Full Moon
A full moon occurs when the moon is exactly opposite the sun. During this time, hair grows at an average rate, making it a great opportunity to get a haircut that will stay fresh for some time. Hair will grow at an even pace, keeping your new cut looking crisp and bright.
Third Quarter Moon
As the moon moves back towards the sun, hair growth slows dramatically. This is a good time to cut your hair short or to trim your existing short hair. Because hair growth is so slow, women with short hair won't have to make frequent trips to the salon to maintain their cut.
New Moon
A new moon occurs when the sun and moon are in the same position in the sky, approximately every 28 days. Hair is known to grow rapidly during this time. This is a good opportunity to allow your hair to grow if you are trying to grow it out, or a chance for you to try out a new cut without having to make a long-term commitment to a new style.
Follow the Signs
In addition to observing the position of the moon, knowing your zodiac sign can help you choose the hairstyle best suited to your personality and lifestyle. Capricorns (December 22 to January 20) tend to have classic tastes, avoid trends and fads, and prefer trusted hair care products. Aquarians (January 21 to February 19) are highly individualistic and like to set their own trends. Those born under the Pisces sign (February 20 to March 19) tend to be very artistic and prone to changing their hairstyles often.
Astrology or zodiac sigs for your hair horoscope
Another sign known for bold and daring styles is Aries (March 20 to April 19), who are often the first to try the latest and edgiest trends. If your sign is that of Taurus (April 20 to May 19), you will most enjoy classic, understated looks rather than following trends. You will be more satisfied if you stick with the haircut that looks best on you. Unlike Taurus, Geminis (May 22 to June 21) are known for frequently changing their hairstyles, often making dramatic styling changes every day.
Another sign known for liking classic hairstyles is Cancer (June 22 to July 23). Cancers are ruled by emotions, dislike change, and tend to prefer traditional hairstyles. Contrary to Cancer's aversion to daring hairstyles, Leos (July 24 to August 23) prefer bold and dramatic hairstyles that complement their intrepid personalities.
If you are a Virgo (August 24 to September 23), you tend to be a bit of a perfectionist and prefer natural or organic products. Libras (September 24 to October 23) desire balance and want their hair to be in harmony with the rest of their look. Scorpios (October 24 to November 22) are dramatic and confident enough to wear very eccentric hairstyles. If you are a Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21), you tend to prefer simplicity in both your hair and styling products.
By noting the position of the moon and your astrological sign, you will be better able to find a hairstyle that is perfectly suited for you. Ask your stylist or astrologer to help you determine the best time for a haircut and the style that best suits your personality and lifestyle.
