Having trouble deciding on your wedding day hairstyle? You're not alone. After all, there are endless options for just about every hair type, texture, and length—enough to make anyone feel overwhelmed. That's why we've turned to the cosmos for guidance and created a list of the zodiac signs as hairstyles.

Whether you're a fiery Aries who wants to rock a smoldering hairstyle or a down-to-earth Taurus who gravitates towards something a little more understated, we've got your wedding day look covered. Once you've found your sign's signature style, work with a professional hairstylist to bring it to life. No matter what you pick, we know you'll look stunning. (After all, it's destiny.)

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. Rock a glamorous topknot, but with an edgy twist. Pull some long strands out in front for a modern take on this classic style—we know you'd never do something that's been done before.

Taurus: April 20–May 20

You're the most responsible and grounded sign, but that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun at the same time. Wear a simple low ponytail 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.

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.

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.

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.

Virgo: August 23–September 22

When it comes to zodiac signs as hairstyles, this one is a given.You're a classic earth sign, and your 'do 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.

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.

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.

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 dreamy look like this one fits the bill, while still feeling elegant.

Capricorn: December 22–January 19

If your zodiac sign was a hairstyle, it would be this extra-elaborate updo. You're probably the most disciplined sign and nothing is out of reach if you set your mind to it. Hence, why this elaborate updo is perfect for you: You'll get endless compliments on the intricacy of it as you pull it off with ease.

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 by adding some accessories, because you're undoubtedly fashion forward.

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.
