Zodiac-wise, Aquarius season is a hairdresser’s fan favorite due to Aquarians’ [sometimes eccentric] individualistic nature, and their penchant for creative self-expression. Further, an Aquarian hairstylist or colorist also has a perfect balance of traits that lend themselves to success in their craft: Intuition, an open mind, and a talent for creating new and innovative ways for clients to express themselves.
“If you are an Aquarius you are a unique individual who is unafraid to let that show in your look and appearance,” comments Artistic Director Fabio Scalia. “You can pull off almost any style. If you feel bold, go for a bright creative hair color. It will look and feel authentic on you.”
Tapping Into our Aquarian Expertise
Fortunately for our clients, four fabulous Aquarians (Eddy Scudo in Brooklyn, and Mirko Vergani & Teresa Steed in SoHo),work in our salons – and we spoke to two of them for insight:
Mirko Vergani, Master Colorist and a bona fide Aquarian, says that creativity and innovation in his work set him apart. “Being open minded to what my clients want, and the ability to insert my own creative input, is a beautiful relationship that I am able to build with them,” says Mirko.
For cut/style, rising star Teresa Steed says that “being comfortable with thinking outside the box is an Aquarian trait that works in my favor.” What’s more, when behind the chair, Teresa’s creative nature allows her to envision the look and bring it to life paying close attention to details big and small.
In celebration of you gloriously unique Aquarians, here are four cuts, styles and color to inspire your wildest dreams.
Flow-y, Voluminous Long Hair
As an air sign, stick with fluffy and flow-y styles, advises Fabio. And it doesn’t get any better than this stunning supermodel-style cut created to be both soft and boldly confident.
Naturally, we look to Mirko to guide our creative color journey. Leave it to him to create this show-stopping coral color, styled two ways to showcase Aquarian style that defies categorization.
A Rebellious, Unpredictable Bob
Don’t tell an Aquarian what to do, or that any hairstyle has to be worn this way or that. To support their non-conformity, Fabio’s latest short bob makes an artistic statement and can be styled three ways.
Airy See-Through Bangs
Are they there, or not? For ethereal Aquarius, barely-there bangs allow you to shape-shift as you please. If you aren’t in the mood to style them, just push aside and they’ll blend in with the rest of your hair.
Finally, whether you’re born under the sign of Aquarius or looking for a new style to support how you’re feeling during this season, our stylists can create a stand-out, free-flowing look this winter. Book now to channel the Age of Aquarius through a new cut and color!
