Nobody loves self-care as much as a Taurus, and it’s time to show off all the growth you’ve done in 2021. Stormi Steele, the founder of Canvas Beauty, hints at what she calls “vacation hair” (big and tightly curled hair) taking over in the new year. While you may need to stock up on hair products to achieve this look for your respective style, you’ll also need a little TLC to fulfill all your hair dreams.

Given your penchant for indecision yet want for big strokes, baby bangs are the haircut for you, Gemini. Sienree Du, a hairstylist with Mane Addicts, loves this look for its punk sensibilities, which fit right in with your desire to fight authority. And, since you’re prone to flip-flopping quickly, this haircut grows out quickly in case you hate it.

Change isn’t your favorite word in the dictionary, so a little is all you’re looking for when it comes to your 2022 hairstyle, Cancer. That’s why Irinel de Leon, a Mane Addicts stylist, sees curtain bangs for you. “It’s not as full of a commitment as the full bang. It provides a change with versatility as well,” she says.

Leos are always at the forefront of trends, so rest assured that they’ll be rocking the super hip mullet in 2022. “In recent months, I’ve seen everyone from Rihanna to Dream Doll and Cardi B rocking the rock-inspired hairstyle,” Stormi Steele, the founder of Canvas Beauty, says.

Comfort comes first to Virgo, followed closely by their want to be uber fashionable. That’s why you should follow in the steps of celebrities like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato and get a lob. It’s not as intense as a full-on bob but will let you fulfill your short hair-inspired fantasy.

Libras are softer beings, often with a serious dedication to their aesthetic. Rather than do a massive change, something smaller like bangs is right up your alley. “Long, wispy bangs will be trending for 2022. It works with any face shape leaving a soft, stylish look,” Raven Hurtado, a stylist at Maxine Salon, says.

Scorpios are usually at the forefront of the fashion scene, so you likely played around with a shag cut or full-out mullet in 2021. While that style’s still going strong, you’re probably looking for something even more iconic to rock in the new year. An overgrown mohawk is the next step to take your look to a whole new, drastic level.

You prefer to be on the go, so a hairstyle that requires a lot of upkeep isn’t for you. To keep your length, “I recommend adding layers for texture and movement also so that it doesn’t feel heavy or bulky at the bottom,” Hurtado says. “If cut right, it can be air-dried and it’ll look great with the natural texture.”

With all of your projects going on, there isn’t enough time in the day to spend hours on your hair. Luckily, “the Rachel” is coming back, according to Alex Brown, a Chicago-based celebrity hairstylist. “It gives movement and texture to a long-haired haircut,” she says.

Pisces tend to stay away from bold haircuts, but your desire to constantly change makes you the perfect candidate for a blunt bob. “Clients can flip [the haircut] in towards their face, flip out, or keep straight or wavy. Again, [it’s] a really versatile look and a nod to the ‘90s vibe coming back,” Megan Driggs, a stylist with Covet and Mane, says.
