The second quarter of 2020 is here, which means it's Taurus season - here's a little birthday forecast for 2020 for all those born between 19 April and 20 May!
Expect exciting times: This is yet another year you are breaking out of the routine as Uranus transits your sign, encouraging you to take a different approach to your attitudes and life. It's a period of transition, when you embrace desires you never knew you had while Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto challenge you to change your outlook. You often feel fresher, more energetic, or more expressive as you move towards a more authentic life for yourself - just note that detachment from some aspects of your past is necessary. Also, you are changing in fundamental ways, but sometimes the people around you (especially those you’ve known for a long time) can feel alienated.
On the career front, winds are shifting, but you may not feel quite “there” yet, since you have to take care of some unfinished business before you see the changes. Learn as much as you can this year, and put in effort with things you genuinely love during this period of transition and personal growth. This is a powerful time for a new or renewed passion project: it can turn out to be all-consuming at times, and mighty rewarding. You’re looking for more meaning and motivation, and you’re likely to find it in 2020.
As you embark on your evolution, you might be considering a new look to herald a new stage in your life. So we found some fellow Taureans that might give you inspiration for your crowning glory and help you decide what you might want to tell your stylist after the circuit breaker.
P.S. You may want to experiment with some of these styles yourself to make sure you still look presentable on Zoom!
This is a whole lot of look on its own, while also being a really pretty placeholder for your current locks if you're thinking of growing them out to transition to a different style. Taurus girl Adele looks amazing, and is a shining example of how you can rock pinned-up hair for a retro pinup look.
Model Gigi Hadid is a fan of the vintage vibes too.
These looks do take some styling, so you might want to pop into the salon for your own prototype pinup or videocall your stylist for some tips on how to best get these done. Because Singapore salons are no slouch when it comes to this look:
Take a look at these pretty pinned-up hairstyles:
If you want your next pokemon evolution to be sophisticated and sexy, get the classic Hollywood waves as modelled by bombshells Jessica Alba and Megan Fox.
It's high-impact, feminine, and a look that means business. It's also a look with lots of movement, as befitting the journey you'll be taking through this exciting year.
Here are some places we'd recommend where you can get it perfectly done:
Vicky from Mode Studio @ Wheelock Place
We know that long bobs are called lobs, so what exactly is a mid-length lob? It's basically one that is slightly longer than a lob, just like the hairstyle that Taurean goddess Gal Gadot is modelling. In between short and long hair, it's perfect for this transition time:
Christina Hendricks also loves the longer lob that's past shoulder-length. The waves are also perfect for this year's theme of change and journeying, while the length makes your hair so easy to tie up and tuck away if necessary.
Here's where you can get a great lob in Singapore:
With gentle gradations of colour, Balayages are also great for the girl in the middle of an evolution. Plus they look so lovely, as proven by Taurean model Miranda Kerr.
Penelope Cruz's subtle balayage adds texture and dimension to her hair without being too bright or in-your-face. Consider emulating her style if you're a woman whose own hidden dimensions are about to emerge.
Here's where you can get beautiful balayages in Singapore:
Caramel brown balayage by Danson at 99 Percent Hair Studio
Whatever the style, practical and driven Taurean girls will understand that the most important thing is to maintain healthy, glowy, voluminous hair. And as Korean singer IU demonstrates, that is a pretty awesome look on its own.
Here's chameleon Gigi Hadid strutting silky-smooth straight tresses.
Craving the look? Here are some places you can up the shine and health of your long locks:
