Sometimes in life, we just have to do something totally crazy to find where we belong. Like change our style to match our zodiac sign — hair color and all.

So to do this, why not start with something easy — but totally drastic? Like a new hairstyle for instance. Like Coco Chanel famously quipped, "A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life."

Now, if you've been growing your hair out for what seems like forever (cough, cough ... me), or if you've just gotten comfortable with a style that suits you, it's understandable that you won't want to chop everything off. That stuff takes a long time to grow back!

But instead of chopping it off, why don't you go for something more your style, like color? It doesn't have to be permanent (even though perm hair dye always looks rockin'!) — they have all sorts of temporary hair dyes and chalks that last only a couple of days. 

Either way, it's the most gorgeous way to kick off your new mindset on life! Because sometimes we all— no matter your sign — need a little kick in the butt to get to change.

So take a peek and find out your perfect zodiac sign hair color so you can take the plunge (without having to make too many decisions on your own).
