The best hair accessories for each zodiac sign, according to an astrologer
Every zodiac sign has their own style preference. Leos, for instance, tend to have fiery and bold personalities, so don’t be surprised if you see them rocking flashy outfits on a dreary day. Capricorns, on the other hand, are usually business-casual types with looks that could put Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits to shame. Then you have Aquariuses, who typically don’t follow the conventions of what’s currently “in” and prefer a boho thrift store find or something they create entirely on their own. The same idea is as true for accessories as it is for outfits, as each zodiac sign has a specific taste that draws them to certain accent items—and hair accessories are no exception.
In a time when many of us are just chucking our hair up into ponytails or finding ways to extend a wash, hair accessories can be fun additions to our looks. To find out which hair accessory best floats each zodiac sign’s boat, HelloGiggles talked to astrologer Lisa Stardust. Here are the picks she recommends.
Aries (March 21st—April 19th)

Chunky, textured headbands like this velvet number from Nordstrom are having a moment, and Aries is likely to get on that trend. “A puffy, colorful headband will brighten up the ram’s passions,” Stardust tells HelloGiggles. Naturally, Aries leans towards headbands in red. Fire sign vibes all the way.
Taurus (April 20th—May 20th)

You’re probably kind of a luxe queen, and so you likely want your hair accessories to reflect that. Conventional clips are not your thing—you opt for hair rings. “Hair rings will add glamour and flair to your fashionista mentality,” Stardust says. Free People offers these fun engraved hair rings to dress up braids or ponytails.
Gemini (May 21st—June 20th)

Gemini, you’re “known for your sassy attitude, [and] a big bow headband flaunts your sauciness,” Stardust says. This floral option with a bow that ties at the back is such a look. You, Gemini, will be the queen of spring once you put on this bad boy.
Cancer (June 21st—July 22nd)
Shop it! $6, UrbanOutfitters.com
We understand that your inner child might deeply miss the days of Gelly Roll pens and the Spice Girls, so why not try a hair accessory throwback? “A cheeky childlike clip will make you nostalgic for your youthful days,” Stardust says. You’ll be singing “Wannabe” in these butterfly clips in no time.
Leo (July 23rd—August 22nd)
Shop it! $20, Nordstrom.com
A headband with a punchy print is so you, it hurts. “Leos love to add pizzazz to life, which is exactly what the wrap headband will do,” Stardust says. Adorn your head with this Kate Spade style to let out your inner lion.
Virgo (August 23rd—September 22nd)
Shop it! $18, Anthropologie.com
You have places to go and people to see, so you need a clip that will quickly lock your hair in place. “A claw clip will be practical for you as you prefer simplicity all the time,” Stardust says. These tortoise options add a bit of color without sacrificing functionality.
Libra (September 23rd—October 22nd)
Shop it! $200, Anthropologie.com
“A colorful hair wrap will have the adornments you love to flaunt and show off,” Stardust says. You’re not the shy and retiring type, so this Eugenia Kim Gigi Hair Scarf with a personality of its own will be your hair-accessory catnip.
Scorpio (October 23rd—November 21st)
Shop it! $35, Anthropologie.com
Scorpios want hair accessories that feel secure but don’t compromise on style. “A bow hair tie will let people know that you are tough, strong, and classy,” Stardust says. We have really been digging this Helena ponytail holder set for spring, and we think you will, too.
Sagittarius (November 22nd—December 21st)
Shop it! $23, Etsy.com
As the archer of the zodiac, you probably fancy the idea of putting something in your hair that looks like a bow and arrow. “A hair slide is the perfect addition to your unique and low-key hairstyle,” Stardust says. We scoured Etsy, and this open circle clip is sure to be your new hair slide go-to.
Capricorn (December 22nd—January 19th)

As you spend your days busily flitting from one thing to the next, you’ll likely want to have a reliable scrunchie around your wrist just in case. “A traditional no-fuss hair scrunchie is the best look for the no-fuss sea-goat,” Stardust says. We like Urban Outfitter's Olivia scrunchies because they do their job while also staying on trend.
Aquarius (January 20th—February 18th)
Shop it! $35, Anthropologie.com
You want a hair accessory that is free and flowy, just like your spirit, Aquarius. “A scarf pony will hype up the water-bearer’s bohemian vibe with style,” Stardust says. This Baila hair scarf set from Anthropologie is giving us major ’60s vibes, which is so very you.
Pisces (February 19th—March 20th)
Shop it! $10, UrbanOutfitters.com
Since you are the ultimate water sign, your hair accessory should remind you of the ocean. “A pearly side-clip barrette is ideal for the mystical and undersea world of Pisces,” Stardust says. We love this Luxe pearl set from Urban Outfitters, which includes one clip for every day of the work week.
