With fall on the horizon, there are plenty of new trends and styles popping up in the fashion and beauty world that are chic and cozy for the autumn season. And while you might be looking at unpacking your sweaters or trying out fall’s newest nail trends, you can’t forget about your hair.
But what new style should you try? There are a ton of new hairstyles that have been popping up this year, and what better time to refresh your look than with a chop this autumn based on your zodiac sign? Whether you’re a Gemini wanting a moody mixie, or a Taurus looking to try some tendrils, these are the haircuts to get according to your sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
As a fire sign, Aries knows how to bring the drama. And because of that, a delightfully shaggy wolf cut is a great option for the sign that likes a little bit of edge.
Euphoria star Barbie Ferreria works as the perfect inspo for your hairstylist. Just show them this pic of her with voluminous bangs and choppy ends and prepare for a fall makeover.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Tauruses are all about timeless glamour. To match your penchant for all things that are luxe, go for a more subtle haircut by trying out some tendrils. This style will highlight your cheekbones and jaw and looks great with an updo or a messy ponytail. And, if you’re someone who wants a change without losing the length of your locks, it’s a simple change to make. Megan Thee Stallion rocked some softly curled tendrils at the Grammys, proving that they’re a style that is sticking around for quite some time.
If you’re wanting your tendrils to be a little more dramatic, try bleaching them or dyeing them a bright colour to liven things up. Dua Lipa’s bright blonde tendrils are the perfect Y2K take on this classic look.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Geminis aren’t always the most decisive signs, which is why selecting one cut requires a lot of patience. However, a mixie haircut is a great option for Geminis who don’t feel like committing exclusively to one look. Part pixie cut, part mullet, the mixie is a unique cut that frames pretty much every face shape. Ask your hair stylist for long bangs and let them start chopping!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancers are a sign that appreciates romance, so these gorgeous lobbed box braids are a dreamy trend to try out for those with textured tresses.
If you want to experiment even further, try switching up the colour of your braids to add another layer of excitement to your new style. We love these sunset-coloured braids that are super in right now, since it feels like pretty much everyone is trying out life as a redhead.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
For any Leo, it’s well-known that your hair is your crown. This is why curtain bangs are a great option to really show off your glorious mane. You can get curtain bangs if your hair is long or short, but we personally love the drama of wispy curtain bangs and a long, layered cut.
Take notes from Sabrina Carpenter and ask for a cut that sweeps your eyes and makes your cheekbones look as sharp as ever.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos love structure and routines, so having one for your hair makes lots of sense. Try this rounded curly haircut that takes its cues from the ’70s with its disco-inspired shape. It’s perfect for organized Virgos who want to take their time detangling and diffusing their curls to get the perfect amount of volume every time.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras know how to light up a room, and they tend to do so effortlessly. This makes a long lob the perfect option for a friendly Libra who wants to look warm and approachable, but also that they just woke up looking perfectly chic.
Take a page from Kaia Gerber’s stylebook and opt for a few layers to give your haircut some body. If you’re feeling extra bold, you can also ask for some bangs to spice things up.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpios are always loyal to what they love, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want to change up their style every now and then. If you already wear your hair short, have fun with your boring bob by getting your ends cut blunt and then bumping them out into this ’60s-inspired style rocked by Lizzo.
Everyone knows that Scorpios are infamous for being intense, but that doesn’t mean they can’t also be playful when it comes to their personal style, which is precisely why this fun style is the perfect fit — it’s not the typical angled or inverted bob that you might expect for this water sign.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
A fiery Sag deserves nothing less than a cut that lets them embrace their natural beauty, which is why a short curly cut will showcase your hair doing its thing. Keke Palmer’s shiny coils are the perfect source of inspiration, as the voluminous cut showcases her hair’s beautiful texture while also drawing attention to her eyes and forehead.
Although it’s a simple cut, it’s versatile in that it will allow Sags to style it a myriad of ways, from braids to twists or puffs.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
If there’s one thing Capricorns are known for, it’s their relentlessness. This is why the ultimate chop, a buzzcut, is perfect for the sign who doesn’t need hair to get in the way of their ambition. It takes a great deal of confidence to pull off such a bold cut, but if there’s any sign that can do it, it’s the Capricorns.
With no time to be wasted on styling their hair every morning, after doing this cut, Capricorns can continue to focus on taking over the world.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquariuses might be seen as a chill sign, but that doesn’t mean your hair can’t wow people. We collectively lost our minds when Emma Chamberlain showed up to the Met Gala in a platinum blunt bob, and even though it’s a simple cut, nevertheless it’s just so easy and flattering.
If you have long locks and you’re looking to finally make a big change, a sharp bob like this is the perfect cut for you. Bonus points if you’re willing to change your hair colour too.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces, you are a true creative. This is why you need an unconventional, artsy cut that speaks to your soul, like this feathered half-shaved cut. The dimension of Halle Berry’s bleached swooping half-shave is a great way to show off any cute earrings you have, plus because it’s a shorter cut it’s easy to style and manage.
If you have curly hair, this style also works. Just be sure to lay down your edges and then fluff out the top to pack in some volume.
