It’s not a calm world, and neither are the hairstyles. Imagine Cher, Mick Jagger, the late David Bowie and the era of rock ‘n roll, disco and rebellious attitudes where individuality was freely expressed.

Using these old basic hairstyles and tweaking them a little with some slicing and razoring is 2017 signature styles. Add intense colors; whether it is a full head, partial, highlights or just at the nape, go wild and you’ll get the picture the galaxy is trying to paint.

For example:

Aries wants to be teased.

Taurus is all talk. She says she’ll change her do, but that is only in her dreams.

Gemini is two-sided; a wavy layered bob with Balayage techniques around the face.

Cancer: Pale pink and smoky amethyst highlights.

Leo: Long and straight with a full bang, just like Cher, only blonde.

Virgo: Winter white blonde, sides slicked back, top puffy.

Libra: Long center bang parted in the middle and curled away from the face, very balanced.

Scorpio: Very short sides and back with a teased high top. Mahogany.

Sagittarius: Vibrant red-blonde and brown. Longish with a peek-a-boo side wave.

Capricorn: A layered bob, short back, long, long sides, then mess it up. Actually have your stylist tease it, and then lighten just the frizz.

Aquarius: Mid-length, cut oval around the face and sides, the color is sterling silver.

Pisces: Punk short and edgy with streaks of violet, mint green and peach.

Fashion wise, Hilary’s prediction: fuchsia to purple will be the hottest colors. She’s always right!

Talk to you in February in the Age of Aquarius.
