Your 2017 Haircut Horoscope (& How To Style It!)

PHOTOGRAPHED BY KAT BORCHART.
What can't a horoscope do? We use our astrological signs to help us predict and plan every part of our existence — from our sex lives and career endeavors to our vacation plans — and beauty inspiration is no exception. In fact, from nails to makeup, the planets hold more wisdom than you may think. That is, if you know how to interpret it.

This time, we sought out resident R29 astrologers The AstroTwins for help with our hair. Using some of our favorite cuts for 2017 (all of which were created by top stylists in L.A. and NYC) the cosmically-gifted duo assigned each sign a chop that will enliven, complement, or harmonize with the year ahead. Consider it the shakeup you need to make the planets work for you this year.

"We look to Jupiter, the planet of risk-taking and adventure, which will spin through Libra until October 10, shaping trends for the upcoming seasons," Ophira Edut, one half of the sister duo, says. Fret not, because no matter where you stand on the role of the planets, the cuts ahead are foolproof for every texture and lifestyle. Want even more?

The AstroTwins Say: "With Jupiter in your romantic seventh house, go for soft and flowy this year. Aries tends to be very straightforward, but the year ahead will show your softer, less in-your-face side, so it's important to choose a haircut that reflects that."

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter is in your practical and natural sixth house, which favors simple, no-fuss styles. The sixth house also rules health, so an easy, after-workout style is great.

"Taurus tends to go for no-nonsense styles and traditional cuts, avoiding anything too edgy, but it's a good year to try something that's a little bit of both."

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter is in your fierce and dramatic fifth house, which says big and bold. Pump up the curls, waves, or whatever your natural texture is with a short cut that amps up the volume of your strands.

"Gemini tends to be more playful, so a cut that adds volume is ideal this year. You aren't afraid to make an impact, and the bigger your hair, the more your true self can shine. It's time to turn up the volume on your personality!"

What To Ask For: A classic shag with round layers. Tell your hairstylist you want layers that are about the same length throughout your hair, which will create the shag look — and note that the chop should be tailored to your texture. The front, face-framing section should be shorter either way, which creates the necessary fringe. Learn more here.

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter in your feminine fourth house, which makes this the perfect year for soft finger waves and long hair. Think: Goddess meets bodice-ripper heroine.

"You will have a romantic year, so you'll benefit from romance novel hair: Victorian and free. Add curls if they don't come naturally."

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter is in your playful third house, so go eclectic! The lion's mane is very important, but this year it is all about lightening up and being more fun. This year, Leo will be a bit more tomboyish, edgy, and eclectic. You may want to change your hair a lot this year — and you should, starting with this edgy cut."

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter in your luxe and sophisticated second house favors traditional, simple, sleek — a structured cut that's also chic. It’s a mix of practical and sophisticated.

"Virgo enjoys the process of getting ready, so take the time this year — make a ritual of it. You want a look that's refreshing, but not over-the-top — it's not a wild year for Virgo."

The AstroTwins Say: "With Jupiter in Libra, dare to try a bold and experimental trend. Libra’s are going out of character this year; they do not tend to be edgy, but they are going incredibly bold this year. While they veer towards feminine and soft... it's time to push yourself out of your comfort zone, dear Libra."

The AstroTwins Say: "With Jupiter in your fantasy-fueled and artsy-chic twelfth house, channel your inner mermaid with an indie-rocker edge.

"Scorpio is somewhat in their zone — with a little bit of mystery and imagination thrown in. Let your inner rock star come out with bangs — and keep the length feminine with an edge."

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter in your innovative eleventh house says modern and a little bit of androgyny — more playful and cool than sexy. This year calls for quirky and choppy, with different layers — nothing too fussy or polished.

Sagittarius likes to be on the go, so you can wake up this year with a bit of bedhead and head right out the door with a style that still looks good. It's time to show off your cool personality."

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter in your outspoken and future-forward ninth house says big and bold, playful, and in-your-face. Make a statement, be free, and take a risk.

"Aquarius is already quirky and colorful, and it's okay to be a little too much this year. You can have a wild, voluminous, textured haircut. In fact, you should. Too much of a good thing is just right for you this year, Aquarius."

What to ask for: A mid-length base cut with soft layers throughout and symmetrical face-framing layers. The goal is to chop into the length to volumize your texture. The shortest pieces start around the cheekbones and get longer as you go toward the back of the head, which keeps it modern. Get more details here.

The AstroTwins Say: "Jupiter in your sexy and mysterious eighth house favors a vampy style and something to hide behind... Pisces, this is the year to get bangs. They will give your look a little something different — something more to play with through the year."
