2016 is here and we’ve been searching for fresh ways to look and feel our best this year. From new hair color and styles to new tools and products, a girl after great hair days can be challenged by limitless options ( exhibit A and exhibit B) and constant style inspiration. So we turned to the hair divine and compiled the best hair care regimens for the style-savvy. Here’s your hair-oscope for the month!
Aquarius: This month, you’re in need of a great hairstyle worthy of a birthday celebration. Turn heads and make a statement with this coiffed updo (sure, the holidays are over but is there ever a time when you don’t want to channel your inner-Gwen Stefani?).
Aries: The biggest challenge you faced in 2015 was how to eliminate frizz (there is nothing quite like the challenge of tackling lioness hair on a muggy day). Thankfully, the stars aligned and brought you the power of Awapuhi Wild Ginger® MirrorSmooth®. This month, you’ll say goodbye to frizz and hello to great hair days. #HairOnFleek
Taurus: Adoring Taurus, this month the planets are in just the right position to give you the courage to break away from your routine hairstyle and try something fresh. We see a chic, low ponytail in your future.
Gemini: 2015 was a year full of great challenges and lots of progress, and we see 2016 shaping up to be another banner year for you. And it’ll all begin with a killer hair cut that commands the attention of those you need to impress. There’s a Paul Mitchell® pro waiting to transform your tresses in your area!
Cancer: If the holiday rush still has you exhausted, we know just what will help you re-center and re-condition your weary strands. This month, take a tip from the pros and turn your everyday shower into a spa-like retreat.
Leo: Savvy Leo, you are wise beyond your years and this month, you’ll make the most of it. While everyone else is signing up at the local gym, we encourage you to beeline it to the salon to color your confidence (link to blog post) and start off the year with a new, fresh color.
