If you're having trouble deciding on your wedding day hairstyle, you're definitely not alone. After all, there's no shortage of options out there for just about every hair type and length. That's why we're turning to the stars for guidance. Here, check out the 12 best styles hand-picked for every sign in the zodiac, from cascading waves to structural updos.

  1. Aries: March 21–April 19

    As the first sign in the zodiac, you're the leader of the pack. You'll always want something one of a kind, totally authentic and—dare we say it?—slightly over the top. Steal this unique side braid with flowers woven throughout—we know you'd never do something that's been done before.

  2. Taurus: April 20–May 20

    You're the ultimate responsible and grounded sign, but that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun at the same time. Wear a simple updo so you won't have to worry about your locks as you get down all night on the dance floor, but make it yours by pulling out some wispy, romantic pieces.

  3. Gemini: May 21–June 20

    Geminis are notoriously unpredictable, and no one will see this 'do coming from the front. Leave it to a Gem to take a chic updo to the next level with a sizeable metallic accessory that'll leave your guests breathless after they see it from the back.

  4. Cancer: June 21–July 22

    Everyone adores you for your sensitive and emotional side, and your hairstyle will garner the same respect. Stick with something as hopelessly romantic as you are—like a classic half-up, half-down look. Bonus points: With your hair pulled away from your face during your vows, you're totally free to shed all the tears.

  5. Leo: July 23–August 22

    As a very fire-y fire sign, you're as vibrant as they come. We know you love to be the center of attention at all times, so let your hair do the talking with an exquisite, flower-adorned ponytail. It's chic and regal (which is usually the look you go for), but also striking and unique, like your personality.

  6. Virgo: August 23–September 22

    You're a classic earth sign, and your hairstyle will easily reflect your practical, grounded qualities. Stick with natural, beautiful waves. Full disclosure: We know you tend to be overly critical of yourself sometimes, but you can't go wrong with this one.

  7. Libra: September 23–October 22

    Libras are true socialites. You'll float from table to table with ease at your reception in this updo (that'll undoubtedly get you lots of compliments too). You also love to stray away from the norm, and a gorgeous flower adornment will up the ante.

  8. Scorpio: October 23–November 21

    Admit it: You can be a little bit stubborn sometimes—and that's okay. Everything you do is intentional and purposeful. So regardless of what style you have in mind, you're destined to make it known that it's exactly what you were going for. We love this piecey look—it screams confidence.

  9. Sagittarius: November 22–December 21

    An oversize flower crown is just what the stylist ordered. You're whimsical, extroverted and never take yourself too seriously (even on your wedding day). You love to make people smile at all times, and a whimsical look like this one fits the bill, while still feeling elegant.

  10. Capricorn: December 22–January 19

    You're probably the most disciplined sign in the zodiac. Nothing is out of reach if you set your mind to it, which is why an extra-elaborate updo is perfect for you. You'll get endless compliments on the intricacy of it, and you'll pull it off with ease because that’s just what you do (read: look effortlessly chic at all times).

  11. Aquarius: January 20–February 18

    You're always true to you, which is what makes wedding planning so much fun. You’ll want to stick with something you're comfortable with—like a pretty, natural braid—but still make the style feel a bit different at the same time, because you're undoubtedly fashion forward. Win-win.

  12. Pisces: February 19–March 20

    Ah, Pisces. You're gentle, sensitive and artistic. You're destined for a soft, yet sculptured look your guests (and partner) will love. The visual side of you will want some pizzazz—and some eye-catching, metallic accessories will make an aesthetically pleasing final touch.
