Do you enjoy experimenting with your hair? Well, the next time you visit that salon to try a new cut, check if it goes with your sun sign. Believe it or not, the trend of getting haircuts to suit one’s sun sign is steadily on the rise.
It is believed that sun sign-suitable haircuts will boost confidence and also help you advance in life. True or not, what’s the harm in trying? Read on to find out your ‘lucky cut’.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Those born under this sun sign are usually blessed with healthy, shiny hair. Energetic and optimistic, Arians are born leaders. Ideally, they should opt for a step-cut. It’s okay to keep your hair long, but try getting flicks to break the monotony.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taureans are known for their dependability, patience and perseverance. The bulls are not very fond of change and can be quite stubborn. They should go for really short hair. A bob cut would be the best.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Intelligent and curious, Gemini people are generally restless. They are always on the lookout for something new and will not stick to anything for long. It’s best for Gemini to keep long hair. That will help them try out various haircuts as frequently as they want.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The crab is moody. While they may exude kindness and warmth at times, they can also be grumpy, snappy and aloof. Soft-hearted with a tough exterior, Cancerians should ideally keep shoulder-length hair. Blunt, U and layer cuts will suit them.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22)
The lion loves drama and attention and is egoistic. Leos believe in living life to its fullest. Social, cheerful and ambitious, these people should go for catchy hairstyles. They tend to veer towards eyeball-grabbing, not-for-the-faint-hearted haircuts.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22)
Born perfectionists, the Virgos get easily tired of the imperfections around them. Reserved and shy, they can also be logical and rational. Being more susceptible to hairfall, they shouldn’t choose too long or short hair. Keep it a little below shoulder-length.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22)
Diplomatic by nature, Librans seek balance and harmony in life. They love to be admired and respond well to praise and flattery. Blessed with naturally soft hair, they should keep their hair medium-length.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
Scorpios are full of contradictions. They can be wonderful friends, but also deadly enemies. They are passionate about everything they do. Long hair that curls at the ends is the best for them. Grow your hair and get those soft curls at the tip.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
Fiercely independent, Saggis cannot be pinned down. They are straightforward and honest, but also sensitive to criticism. Cheerful by nature, Saggis with wavy and straight hair should go for a feather cut. If the hair’s extremely curly, go for a bob cut.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
Those born under this sun sign have a strong desire for success, money and power. Blessed with a strong sense of humour, these people are basically loners. It’s best for them to grow their hair long and go for a layer cut.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Original and unconventional, you will never find an Aquarian following the crowd. Stubborn, loyal and kind, they are idealists. Young Aquarians can go for a cap cut. Get short flicks in the front and go for long, wavy hair behind. Try high ponytails.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
This sun sign represents eternity and spiritual rebirth. Intuitive, emotional and sensitive, Pisceans easily empathise with others. They are also very creative. Those born under this sun sign should go for a wavy, permed look if they have thick hair.
