The new year always comes with a desire for change, both major or minor. If you’re ready for a shake-up, a new hair color is a perfect way to kick off 2022. Switching up your hair color is one of the easiest and most exciting ways to revitalize your look and sense of self. Even adding in a few highlights can be so transformational. So, as you play the Rocky theme and gas yourself up, here’s the 2022 hair color trend ideal for your zodiac sign, according to experts.

For the bold and daring Aries, you’ll likely want to start the new year with a bang. Hitomi Ikeda, a hair color specialist at Rob Peetoom, calls this vibrant shade “vampire red,” and its fierce punch matches your energy perfectly.

As creatures of comfort, Tauruses are not too fond of change. But, you don’t have to do a major haul to feel transformed. For that, “super subtle, neutral highlights with very low maintenance” are what Marcy Cline, an NYC hair colorist, recommends.

Since you’re known for your split personalities, it only makes sense that Geminis would rock a half-and-half, dyed hairstyle. It’s graphic, modern, and will get you all the attention you crave.

Lean into the forest nymph you’ve always wanted to be and go for an earthy, chocolatey brunette color. If you want something a little more daring, Irinel de León, a Mane Addicts hairstylist, suggests adding some cherry tones to your brown.

Leos command and demand attention, which is why it’s time to finally give in and bleach your hair. Your fearlessness and confidence make you the ideal zodiac sign for this Marcy Cline-approved dye job.

Practicality is the name of the Virgo game, so balayage hairdos are very well suited for you. This style is “hair that is darker at the root and blonder at the end,” celebrity hairstylist Jennifer Korab says. “This look is low maintenance and adds a lot of dimension.”

Kim Kardashian, Gwen Stefani, and Naomi Osaka are all Libras, so to say Libras like dramatic, iconic looks is an understatement. As lovers of shock and awe, Sienree Du, a Mane Addict stylist, says light colors are calling this sign. “Soft, pastel colors in block coloring dominate a more bold look,” she tells Elite Daily.



Scorpios thrive on intensity, and nothing is as intense as graphic, streamlined highlights. You can place your highlights in random patches or create your own, unique take on it.

While known for their wanderlust, a Sagittarius’ style is usually more on the low-maintenance, chill side of things. You can play to both your sense of adventure and relaxed nature by going with streaks of a fun color of your choice. If you’re unsure what you’re feeling, Ikeda says pink will be trending for 2022.

With all the projects you’re working on, Capricorn, you don’t have a lot of time to worry about your hair. Thus, Korab’s 2022 color pick, honeycomb blonde, is the perfect fit for you. It’s a bold changeup from your usual look without demanding you find a whole new wardrobe to match.

The Aquarius, rebel of the zodiac, doesn’t like to play it safe. That dedication to staying off the beaten path is shown with their hair choices. When it comes to the unexpected, de León sees green in your future.

Pisces have a reputation for being creatures of habit, but their imaginative streaks often take them out of the box. So, a playful dye job is just what the hairstylist ordered. Something like blending your color into the top of your hair (to get a lived-in look) is a recent trend, according to Lorena Martinez, a colorist at Maxine Salon in Chicago.
