Impatient Aries is only happy when she’s 100% ready to pounce on the next intriguing venture that crosses her path. Keeping her mind and body in great shape comes naturally, but her hair is another matter entirely. Summer, with its pool parties and humidity, can be her nemesis! She needs a moisture-busting hair care regime, so Nexxus® Salon Hair Care Frizz Defy system is always in her corner. Formulated with Moroccan Argan oil and coconut extract, it locks in nourishment while reducing frizz by up to 87%, rendering humidity harmless. Her hair remains voluminous and silky smooth, no matter what the season spritzes her way! Keep your mane amazing at mass retailers, select drugstore and supermarkets nationwide.

Sensible Taurus loves to surround herself with luxury, but wouldn’t dream of spending all of her hard-earned money on it. In fact, part of the fun of having the best of everything is finding it for as little as possible! Keeping her hair looking like she just walked out of a salon (without walking into a salon every week) is important to her self-image, so she adds a few pumps of Rita Hazan Foaming Color Gloss to her washing routine. Whether she wants to tone down brass, pump up golden tones or simply gloss it up, this lightweight non-aerosol foaming mousse gives her hair the daily (yes, it’s that gentle) boost it needs to crown Her Fabulousness appropriately without the Master Colorist price. Keep your tresses impressive at the Rita Hazan Salon in New York, Sephora stores nationwide and www.sephora.com.

Adaptable Gemini has a ton of energy and curiosity that make her a lot of fun to travel with. She’s also got the attention span of a gnat, so everything she packs has to be both functional and intriguing. To keep her hair fabulous, she needs her Keratin Complex Ultra-Light Mini-Pro Ceramic Blow Dryer. With its micro-ceramic heating element that dries and styles her hair in half the time of mere mortal dryers while keeping it soft and healthy, this gives her everything she needs in compact, pretty perfection.

Flirty Cancer is a good girl at heart, but loves to slip into femme fatale mode now and then. Nothing says fatale like soft, silky, shiny hair, so the MVP of her girls’ night prep routine is her amika x Cynthia Rowley Ceramic Styler. Featuring 100% ceramic plates and enough power to create gorgeous straight, curly or wavy styles in record time, it even protects hair from cuticle damage by using far-infrared heat to preserve its natural moisture. Give your hair a healthy surge of sex appeal at Sephora stores or www.sephora.com.

Confident Leo loves to flaunt her femininity, especially in the steamy summer months. With steamy often comes droopy, though, and her glorious mane needs all the help it can get! To ensure year-round bounce and shine, she turns to Denise Richards Volume Extend by Cristophe. Inspired by the awesomely coiffed actress’ desire to find a hair care line that was as good for her family’s health as it was their hair, stylist Cristophe developed this line using premium ingredients and cutting edge formulas. The result: healthy, happy, irresistible hair no matter what! Glam up your own ‘do at www.Cristophe.com or on ShopNBC..

Analytical Virgo deals with everything in her life from the inside out. Premium gas in her car keeps it running like new. A clean, healthy diet gives her energy. To keep her exterior strong and gorgeous, a daily dose of GNC WELLbeING® be-BEAUTIFUL™ Hair, Skin and Nail supplement is exactly what she needs. A portable, pre-measured power pack containing biotin, collagen, amino acids and antioxidants, it keeps her chassis in peak condition for as long as she wants to rev her engine!

Artistic Libra can’t stand to be ordinary. If there’s a way to stand out in a crowd, she’ll find it! From sparkly shadows to neon jeans, if it’s out there, it’s for her. This summer, her hair has been her playground, and her favorite new toy is SOBE Organics Remy Seamless Fantasy Color Tape Extensions. Designed to be gently taped onto natural hair for three to nine months of wear, these fun pieces come in red, blue, burgundy, pink and purple. She can add a subtle splash or tape them all in and really be noticed! Have some fun with your look at www.SOBEorganics.com.

Resourceful Scorpio prides herself on taking care of her own business. From finances to housekeeping, every aspect of her life is under control. She even cuts her own hair! Keeping that hair soft and healthy is a challenge, especially in the heat and humidity of summer, but she’s got that covered too. Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Collection adds sugar cane and bamboo extract to intensely hydrate her scalp and strands, mend her pesky split ends and protect it all with a color-defending UV shield. All that and a tropical, beachy scent...what more can a girl ask? Ask for some yourself at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid and other major retailers.

Breezy Sagittarius loves summer because she can banish pants and long sleeves from her closet, dig out her sandals and let her skin reacquaint itself with her beloved sunshine! As simple as it seems, though, her plan requires some prep work. After the inevitable visit to her friendly neighborhood waxer to ready her skin for its close-up, European Wax Centers’ Slow Grow Body Lotion makes sure it stays ready. Slowing the regrowth of her hair and making subsequent waxes less ouchy, this lotion lets her focus on fun rather than fur! Choose your wax relief wonders at www.waxcenter.com.

Responsible Capricorn often feels conflicted when it comes to summer. Controlled and sensible in her everyday life, her self-discipline is legendary amongst her friends. Frivolity isn’t even a blip on her radar … until she sees adorable summer hairstyles in magazines and on the streets. Should she spend valuable time and money on accessories? Absolutely! Remington’s 2012 Summer Accessory Collection, featuring braided headbands, flower clips and elastic bands that double as bracelets, lets her create fun, colorful looks without breaking the bank. With all of these pretty, summery choices, her time is as well spent as it would be on perusing an ancient history coffee table book. Brighten up your summer look at Target stores everywhere.

Intrepid Aquarius can’t stand to be tied down. She needs to be free, or at least feel like she could be anytime she likes. This means that everything in her handbag has to be as travel-friendly and multi-purpose as possible. Her favorite portable hair perfector is the Mark Double Do Shape and Gloss Kit. This deceptively diminutive compact holds both a solid gloss (formulated with Muru Muru butter and Amla to instantly add shine and smooth flyaways) and a shape & hold wax to give hair definition and texture. This makes it the most important item in her arsenal, because tropical breezes can really mess with a girl’s ‘do! Breeze-proof yourself at www.meetmark.com.

The Water’s Fine: Geena Davis, January 21; Ellen DeGeneres, January 26; Oprah Winfrey, January 29; Kerry Washington, January 31; Shakira, February 2; Elizabeth Banks, February 10; Jennifer Aniston, February 11; Christina Ricci, February 12
  



Charming Pisces is at her social-butterfly best when everything about her is in place. Pretty clothing, perfect makeup and a fresh manicure all help to form her mystique. Nothing is more important than her hair, though, which she examines for pesky gray roots like a hawk. When they appear faster than she can color them away, she draws her secret weapon: Gray Away Root Concealer. Safe and gentle, this compact aerosol spray uses minerally derived pigments to seamlessly match her roots to this month’s hair color (no matter what it is, as there are four color choices) and get her back into schmooze mode! Keep your roots in line at www.grayaway.com.

Up the Yin Yang: Ellen Page, February 21; Drew Barrymore, February 22; Chelsea Handler, February 25; Rashida Jones, February 25; Elizabeth Taylor, February 27; Marypatricia Mills, March 1; Carrie Underwood, March 10; Eva Longoria, March 15
