Which bangs you should get based on your astrological sign
The decision of whether or not to get bangs can a be heart-wrenchingly difficult one (especially if you’re an indecisive Libra like moi) given the level of commitment they require.
But this decision is only half of the battle. Perhaps the more important choice is deciding which bangs to get.
You could base this decision on a number of things: your hair color, your eye color, your height, your social security number, what have you.
That said, why not base it on something unique to you that touches on the nuances and who you are? Each zodiac sign has something that makes them different, and one’s bangs should obviously reflect this. Okay good, great. Glad we’re on the same page.
Worry not: there’s a bang style for every zodiac sign (even you, Scorpios…just kidding, no shade). With a little help from Suede Salon and Spa, we figured out which bangs are for you.

Capricorn and Aquarius: Center-parted fringe
Capricorns are known for being steadfast, determined, ambitious and goal-oriented. Similarly, Aquarians love developing and working towards new ideas. They also tend to be unapologetically themselves, and don’t usually care as much what others think. This hairstyle is reflective of that, in that it frames the face in an unapologetic way.
The center part is an intentional afterthought that says you mean business. I feel like parted bangs are 40% more LinkedIn-friendly than non-parted bangs, but feel free to disagree.
Aries: Choppy microbangs
For a moment I considered giving Aries the “blunt” bangs, get it, because… yeah. Word play. Choppy bangs, though, seem to be more their speed.
They’re super edgy, badass and unapologetic, three words that have been used to describe a quintessential Aries. This style is definitely more on the daring side, but choppy microbangs actually look really great on a lot of different face frames. They’re good for that simple, but neat “I just fell out of bed like this and here I am and you’re going to like it but also I look good” vibe. You know? Moving on.
Pisces: Curtain bangs
If your eyes are the windows to your soul, then curtain bangs are you go-to cut. Curtain bangs are wispy and frame the sides of your face, essentially providing the perfect draping for your appearance. This is perfect for the Pisces, who are dream queens and kings of the universe. Pisces are known for being gentle, wise, intuitive and artistic, and this soft style is the perfect fit.
Scorpio: bumper bangs
I told you I got you, Scorpios!
Okay, one word: intense. These bangs are actually so cool and some of the coolest on the list in my opinion, because they’re kind of in your face but also really subtle at the same time. They’re intense, but they’re also mysterious and secretive. Sound familiar?

Libra: la-la-long, lash-grazing bangs
Libras are known for their diplomatic, balanced nature. We (I mean they) tend to be easy-going, charming, romantic, idealist, and maybe a tad bit superficial. That being said, I feel like this hairstyle is fun, easy, and chill. The super long length is really charismatic, and the fact that it ends right above the lashes is cute.
Virgo and Leo: blunt bangs
I feel as though this hairstyle suits both signs, in different ways. Blunt bangs are those guys that go straight across your forehead. Most blunt bangs will stop at or around eyebrow length, although most people like to keep them a bit longer for a more severe look. They’re really good for drawing attention to your eyes and framing your face.
This style suits Virgos, who are often methodical, analytic and extremely thoughtful. They are very practical and sometimes hate being the center of attention, which makes this straightforward versatile look a win.
Leos are warm, passionate, action-oriented and driven. This classic style exudes confidence, which is fitting.

Gemini and Cancer: wispy, textured bangs
Cancers are the low-key emo sign. They love both security and adventure as well as spontaneity and organization, and this sign is marked by a sort of series of dichotomies.
Likewise, Geminis are known for their dual personalities that sometimes contradict each other. That being said, wispy bangs feature both shorter and longer pieces, and have a more textured look, as opposed to blunt bangs that are cut straight across in one uniform length.
They add softness and can help balance the sharp angles of square and heart-shaped faces. This demonstrates the various layers and elements of personality that these guys have. Check-mate.

Sagittarius: Farrah Fawcett bangs
These are the ones that everyone wanted, I know. But the Sagittarians get this one, and I’ll tell you why. Sagittarius is known for optimism and a positive outlook on life. They’re very free-spirited, sometimes reckless, and have vibrant personas.
Farrah Fawcett’s signature bangs (not to be confused with traditional 70s bangs, which we’ll get to momentarily) are so voluminous and full of life in a way suitable for a Sagittarius. These bangs are super groovy, bouncy, and fun… just like this sign we all know and love.
Taurus: short, blunt bangs
People with this sign are known for being extremely steadfast. They’re passionate and fight hard for what they want. This style is totally suitable for these guys. Short blunt bangs are kind of intense, but they’re also super stylish, unique and say that you’re not afraid to be yourself.
