Introduction to Zodiac Signs
Before we do a deep dive into our carefully curated style recommendations, let’s quickly recap the history of modern day zodiac beliefs that influence decisions and beliefs for millions of people each year.
For thousands of years, humans have tried to interpret signs in the seasons and stars. While the formal study of these phenomena and natural patterns are known as astronomy, a parallel set of beliefs and study known as astrology has become widely practiced and referenced in pop culture. One of the best known astrological systems is called the zodiac.
Tied to ancient roots, the word zodiac quite literally means “cycle or circle of animals.” There are a total of 12 “signs” in the zodiac. Each zodiac sign is represented by a unique symbol and associated with a specific constellation. Different cultures have also associated distinct animals or mythical creatures with each zodiac sign. However, most of us know the 12 zodiac signs because they each correlate to a time of year.
Over time, the zodiac signs, seasons and creatures have become associated with moods, habits, preferences and distinct personality traits. Many people consult the zodiac for insight about themselves and what the future might hold. Because zodiac signs are believed to reflect and predict such personal characteristics it makes sense that these internal qualities also be reflected outwardly through jewelry, fashion and hairstyles.
That’s right! There are specific ways to use a hairstyle for your zodiac sign, and we’ll cover all of the top recommendations in this article.
Finding Your Zodiac Signs
The first step to finding a hairstyle for your zodiac sign is to learn the sign that correlates with the month in which you were born. Below we’ve listed each zodiac sign and it’s related time of the year. As noted in each section below, zodiac signs are all also categorized according to the four primary elements: fire, water, earth and air. The unique aspects of these elements are said to describe the qualities of the three zodiac signs in each category. However, the signs are also believed to indicate much deeper and more intimate information about individuals. The personality qualities attributed to each zodiac sign might give you just the inspiration to find your next hairstyle.
To decide on a hairstyle for your zodiac sign, consult the sections below for more complete descriptions of each sign and our recommendation for how to wear your sign proudly.
