For Virgos, 2020 is the year for creative endeavours, so if you haven't yet, capitalise on this anything-could-happen period and invest more time in creative pursuits. Jupiter is in your sector, meaning that you'll discover new directions in your art, emerge from any blocks that 2019 might have found you in, and in fact are also be likely to find your perfect artistic and inventive collaborator. But for any new relationships on the horizon, remember to prioritise a positive outlook and respect each other's personal time.
Getting in this lighter, innovative mindset will also give you new perspectives on your existing priorities and relationships - perhaps it's time to focus on the things that you can't put a price tag on, like causes you are passionate about, and making time to support loved ones. While you may have experienced some business conflicts or financial troubles, take it as an opportunity to regroup and rethink if there are any long-term underlying issues, such as irregular sleeping schedules, or a general lack of healthy habits - both physical and emotional.
With so many prospective projects and partnerships on the horizon, you might feel like you want to put your best face - and hair - forward. Not to worry, we've got you covered with hair inspo from some celebrity Virgos that you can draw from on your next salon visit.
If you're going to highlight your artistic side, why not take a cue from some of the world's most famous artistes? There are few looks more beloved on the silver screen than the immaculate Hollywood Waves.
These consummate curls also a perfect showcase for the twin Virgo values of passion and perfection.
And with both Zendaya and Hyoyeon from Girls' Generation strutting those spirals, you know they're a classic look that work on just about anyone.
Hollywood waves are best perfected with curling tongs, or other heated styling tools - you can bet it takes some primping to get those screen goddesses red-carpet ready.

If you want to minimise work and seal those spirals in place, however, certain perms can approximate that A-List allure.
If you have relatively long, thick hair, ask your stylist for larger rollers, a low-damage perm solution to maintain your hair's shine, and a lasting cut. Get ready to summon your inner siren!
While Virgos are known for their perfectionism, the emphasis on creativity this year might be a good opportunity to slack off on the flawlessness of the above Hollywood ringlets and instead go for a more boho, beachy vibe.
Virgo vamp Padma Lakshmi looks just luscious letting loose at 50, but anytime is a good time to give this carefree look a go.
And as Blake Lively demonstrates, you can wear those lightly mussed waves and still look like you mean business.
The look is also great for channeling Korean actress Kim Yoo Jung, when its time for some casual neighbourhood charm.
Unless you're blessed with natural waves, this effortless-seeming look is anything but. However! It is easily achievable - and maintainable - with a perm...much more so than Hollywood curls.

While one popular symbol for Virgos is a woman with long flowing hair, this year is a year to buck trends, so why not go shorter and sweeter?
Cameron Diaz certainly rocks a bob, as does Bebe Rexha.
It's a do that's full of movement and motivation, as we imagine this pivotal year will be for you. Not to mention - it's hot as heck, as exemplified by Virgo girl Nayeon (from Kpop outfit TWICE).
Bobs are eminently customisable. Get them longer with a Hollywood perm....
...Shorter with a tousled perm to channel Cameron and Nayeon...
Or short and slick to channel Bebe. And feel free to add colours too, of course...it's all about surfacing that artistry this year.
Of course, one look that authentically screams artistic is just to celebrate your individuality. Love your hair in its natural glory, forgo excessive taming and styling, and take a leaf out of Queen Bey's book as she embraces her riotous 3C curls this year. Not sure what 3C curls are?

And guess what? She's not the only one.
Thanks to lockdowns across the world, we see many more Virgos like Emmy Rossum and Salma Hayek fully embracing their natural hair texture, and letting it all grow out, roots and all. It's tremendously liberating and we're here for it.
Of course, celebrating your natural gorgeousness doesn't mean you can't get your hair cut. A good crop by a stylist who knows your hair type can often be what's needed to best bring out its texture.
Ann's Studio is known to be one of the best salons for bringing out the beauty of curly-haired girls.

Art Noise is great at handling a range of hair textures too!
Actually, with such massive overhaul on the horizon this year, you might just want to get all your hair out of your face to best take anything that comes your way. Time to pull a Pink, and get a pixie!
Love Pink's undershave? The precision cuts at The Beauty Emporium can help you get it just right, or temper it to pass muster with more conventional bosses.
Want something a little more feminine? Something more one-length is still full of derring-do, while being girlishly cute.
And wearing a pixie, of whatever length, always highlights your drive and professionalism, signaling a readiness to roll up your sleeves and work.
Don't want to go super short? Japanese hair salons are great at splitting the difference between a pixie and a bob for some cheeky chic.
Also, this might be the year to bust existing boudnaries, and for some androgynous allure, there are few cuts better than a pixie.
