Embrace Aquarius Season with these water-worthy looks

Loving the idea of horoscope hairstyles? We’ll be giving you some inspo to style your hair according to the Zodiac signs, and we’re starting by looking back at Aquarius! Even though this is the 11th Zodiac sign, Aquarius season starts in Jan – so it’s basically the first, right?

So, what better way to embrace Aquarius than with wavy looks and blue hues? But did you know, even though this is a water bearer, the Aquarius element is actually air! So we’ll be talking about everything from beachy waves to sky-blue hues.

If you’re a proud Aquarian (or just a fan of them), keep reading for our top Aquarius-inspired looks.

If you’re blessed with curly hair, instead of slicking it down, fluff it out. Slather it with a bit of VO5 Wet Look Styling Gel to get the desired look — and plenty of curl definition! This ‘do will be perfect for weddings, engagement parties, at-home parties… basically, anywhere you want to make a statement.

Pastel shades require a lot of maintenance to look its best. An easy tip is to cut down on your wash days to extend the life of your colour. Instead, use a dry shampoo in-between wash days, like the Toni&Guy Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo. What’s more, doing this will add texture to your hair, which is never a bad thing!


Blue streaks

Icy and beautiful, the ash blonde hue is a definite winner for Aquarius season. This airy colour might be a better fit for you if you don’t want to make the major switch to blue. Even better, you can make it as bold as you want. Stay safe with a super cool-toned blonde, or take it up to an icy white.
