Aquarians would rather die than be called “basic.” Eccentric and daring are much better adjectives to describe the water-bearer, so they need a hair accessory that reflects that one-of-a-kind spirit. According to Stardust, “an oversized scrunchie is unique enough to satisfy the dramatic aesthetic of Aquarius.”

Pisces (February 19–March 20):

While Pisces are known as creative, empathetic, and kind, the fish can also be overly sensitive and are often stressed, so a hair accessory that alleviates some of that anxious energy is best. “A claw clip will allow Pisces to swim about their lives without having to stress about their hair,” Stardust explains.

Aries (March 21–April 19):
