Moon in Leo Renegade Hair Tips

As the Moon crosses Asteroid Hecate and the Moon’s North Node in Leo, one’s thoughts turn to…Hair. Amid other matters of course. But hair can be an existential issue as well as a prime mammalian tribal signal. Your colored dreadlocks, five-hues-of-ash-blonde foiled banker lady bob, candy colored hair after Chiron Return, defiant gray, Imperator Furiousa Marines crop  or real housewife hair extensions are a statement, whether you want it/them to be or not. So too is the amount of time and money spent at the hairdresser.

This post is prompted by my reading that the Leo actor Helen Mirren usually cuts her own hair because she is too impatient to get to the hairdresser. I once read that Sharon Stone does also. Is this thrillingly renegade and a budget hack for the Pluto in Capricorn/G.F.C. sequel era?  As a Pluto in Virgo person, i came of age in the Eighties, when only old people spent heaps of times at salon. The standard M.O. for hair was to tip a bucket of bleach, henna or dark dye over it, snip of whatever looked hopelessly damaged and scorch the fuq out of it with hair dryers.  Nobody had expectations of regular blow-outs, whether they were rich or not. It’s easy to joke about the industrial starch strength toxic hair mousse of the era but is there an empowering move to be made in somehow reviving the D.I.Y. of the era or is hair sculpting an art/craft we ought to respect and not attempt on our own? Or, if you are past your first Saturn Return, does having “un-pro-done hair” just make you look like you’re losing it?

This, btw, is Cancerian tennis champion Svetalana Kuznetsova in a spontaneous mid-match hair cutting moment. Thoughts? Renegade Hair Tips? Era by Era Hair observations?

This is a fascinating topic. Im a scorpio sag rising who has the most untamed hair. I don’t want to believe its coarse its just simply wild very energetic but took so much time. My honeymoon in Europe and I got a keratin treatment. Oh its amazing and my hair is so soft so manageable. It dramatically has improved my self image and has caused me to consider a dramatic career change to leadership/managerial roles. This is amazing considering I was a late bloomer I didn’t wear makeup and was never fashion forward. I’ve now returned from Europe and love… Read more »

I’m a Leo and *surprisingly* my trademark has always been massive hair. My hair is naturally a nice shade of brunette and it grows quick. So before I notice, it is down to my bum. My tips for good rebel hair are: 1. Let it be. No washing everyday, no hair dryer, no obsessive hair combing, no crazy tight pony tails everyday, no straightening/curling, no silicone conditioners, artificial hair styling products or dyes. If you want ‘volume’, go surfing (or use salt spray if sadly not possible) and let your hair dry in the sun. (I’m also a Sagg rising,… Read more »

I’ve been cutting my own for a while, 12 yrs. Pony tale right on the top of the head, then trim straight across for long layers, then repeat with just the hair close to my forehead because I like that a little shorter. It’s curly tho so unevenness doesn’t show.

I would go back to a salon if there was one nearby that used the devacurl method – they look at each lock and cut each one just so, at the bottom of a wave where it turns, not right in the middle.

Oooh a devacut. I’ve always wanted one of those. I’ve been doing it myself as well since the hairdressers always butcher it.

This summer I started cutting my own hair…and I love it! I have NO time for salons, and the cuts are always so ho-hum. My own hair cuts are much more exciting and exactly what I’m looking for. I also cut my Virgo daughter’s hair. Maybe my saturn in Leo (I’m a Cap) is taking charge of appearances?

Leo rising here and hair is ridiculously important. I took the plunge to get the red hair my soul desired almost 2 yrs ago (my natural color is almost black) and won’t ever go back, even though it’s been a crazy process. I bleach and henna my roots every month, and have learned so much about henna (check out the Henna for Hair group on fb, it’s founded by a lady who did her phd in henna) and the industry’s complete misconceptions about it. It’s also been a study in intensive DIY, but I love the results too much. I’ve… Read more »

Synchronicity…in late June after going for years and years of cutting my own hair (I was a young adult in the 80’s and knew those products WELL), I asked my boss for the reference of a hair dresser. Well, 12 inches cut off and it looked GREAT. As it grows out – grey and all, it’s still an amazing look. I think I’ll keep it. Which reminds me that the last time I did this type of thing was in the very late 90’s into the new decade/mellinium. Talk about going backwards…oh but I’ve not read that blog yet…

First what a great post and also I am loving reading all the threads! My mother was a stylist, well she still is although she sold her salon years ago and is a teacher now. She has always cuts my hair. Except twice I had it done by two other ladies and I wasn’t a fan. Hair cutting almost feels traumatizing to me. Even when my mom does it. I feel hair is also connected to Saturn and Capricorn yes? Hair contains all of our past and memories. That’s why they do hair mineral testing which is incredibly revealing health… Read more »

We try again next weekend but if it doesn’t work I am going to seek… Read more »

I’m supremely practical and prefer my hair short because long hair takes too long to dry and I hate hair dryers…
Also can’t help feeling having long hair is playing into the misogynist sexist interp of a proper ‘woman’ i.e. men’s ideas of how a women should look…

When younger it was amazing how many guys would accuse me of being a lesbian based purely on my hair and take no shit attitude.

Women, free yourselves from your hair (lol)

I have had everything from number 2 buzz cut to long beachy hippy to black pixie and round again, tho never had any men say I was lesbian but definitely attract different kinds of people depending on the hair, longer attracts more alpha male types, cropped girls and more fluid type men

lol my hair is for my greatness and pleasure. I don’t care a fig what anyone (male or otherwise) thinks of it. Tending to my hair is like exercising or cooking tasty food, a daily task made spiritual. I have had short hair, long, henna’d, left undyed (mousy and mostly grey) – the wider social implications of my hair choices mean nothing to me. If someone thinks lesser or greater of me because of the protein on top of my head that is their issue not mine!

Recently left my long term hairdresser after one too many requests for a hug (shades of Harvey), stopped shampooing (using New Wash by Hair Story, a sort of no poo regimen), no longer color my hair but “restore” it using something called Hair Print, and now have started to let it go for days before washing and often let it air dry (after years of a strict blow dry every morning regimen). I’m convinced I look like a crazy lady but seem to be having more and more people tell me they love my hair so perhaps not? Hoping, as… Read more »

I think the whole blow dry thing is a rort and unnecessary. If I’m going somewhere in in a rush in winter I’ll half dry it, otherwise it’s always air dry for me. I think my hair loses its body and also gets oily quicker if I use a hair dryer. Hate getting hot air blown on my head in a salon too!

Mind you, my hair’s short or above my shoulders always. Once grew it out to a long bob and hated it! It’s thick and gets wavy and looks much better shorter and shaped to my face

Rarely have my locks prof done, as it is cost prohibitive & scandalously bad for the enviro.

Wow. I haven’t had the guts to go completely without colour yet. I’m pepper and salt, about 20% grey/silver, the rest mid brunette but I have the temple ‘distinguished’ bits on either side so I’ve started doing a few streaks of blonde and red at the front. I dyed red for ages since my 20s, now I’m 53 and too young to go grey yet IMO. When its natural I felt a bit ‘faded’ though and as I do my own colour I don’t like the regrowth so decided if I bleach a few strands at the front and put… Read more »

My hair is basically controlled by Saturn and Uruanus I think. Electrified curls that even on the WORST bedhead day and having forgone washing it for a couple days, still sets itself into a discernable structure. Given, that can range from graceful shag to ‘yea man you look crazy’…BUT what I find hilarious is that over the years when I think I’m having a bad hair day is often when someone will say how much they love it. Likewise if I gave too much attention to it (tried to style it) it just wouldn’t feel right. I had shorter hair… Read more »

I used to cut my own hair, but I lost my touch and it really didn’t look great the last time I did it a few years ago. Then I didn’t do anything to it for a long time. Then I got tired of it being long and got it cut coming up on two years, too short, it was a dumb idea. It’s grown out quite a bit and I went blonde, I liked my brown hair and natural highlights I would get but it turned kind of this dark ashy brown color with my last pregnancy and I… Read more »

I am a Sagittarius AC and I have the high forehead to go with it. Some years back, I stopped coloring my gray hair (partly laziness, partly worries about getting cancer). Then I realized that my fine hair was getting white at the hairline and beginning to look almost like a large bald spot where you could see through to the scalp. So I started coloring my hair black again. This year, I realized that even with the black hair, my hair was thinning so much I looked like I had a receding hairline. So I had it styled with… Read more »

Have you gone no-poo? (I know, I know, this is a horrible title). I went through a divorce diet a few years ago and lost so much weight so fast that I lost hair. One of the things (besides time) that helped was weaning off commercial shampoos and washing with coconut oil, ACV or baking soda. The whole daily shampooing thing is so bad for your hair that they actually SAY it’s bad for you in product-sponsored beauty schools. No joke. My mom was in her early 60s when I convinced her to stop with the shampoo and she claims… Read more »

So funny–I’m a licensed but unpracticing cosmo and was JUST thinking I should just go ahead and cut my own hair as it is irritating me. But after a recent trip to London during which I felt like people really underestimated/disrespected me on the Tube due to my all black/leather biker outfit, I was ALSO wondering if I should try to “adult” my look. Cutting my own hair would obviously not aid the adulting. I also considered buying a cheap wig. LOL.

Cap sun, sag asc, moon in Leo. I used to get quarterly trims from the time I graduated college thru the first three years of earning money, but I stopped bc it was too darn expensive and time consuming. I watched a YouTube video on how to cut easy long layers and haven’t looked back since. I trim every few months during the moon in Leo.

I have mostly cut my own hair for several years but have had 2 proper trims in the last 12 months. It has a mind of its own anyway. I wear it tied up for work but lately it has been trying to escape (hmmm) so by the end of the day I have the electric shock look.

I’ve been considering the diy chop (did it for a while when I was 20s) and bleach (likewise) again. But I do really like the cut my hairdresser gives me (I was angsting before, all better now).

I haven’t cut my hair for 14 months now because I’m really funny about who touches it and the only stylist I trusted was on maternity leave. I’ve been trimming the fringe myself but the rest of it has been untouched. I actually kind of like it and I don’t want to get it cut again…but the ends feel absolutely disgusting so I’m gonna get it trimmed next month. Either way, I’m gunning for Venus hair (e.g. knee-length, red – it’s waist length currently, near enough) so it’ll be a case of taking the crispy bits off and nothing else.

Oh yeah, and the bowl-cut (oops, I mean “Page-boy” haircut) my Nana gave me (yes the long blonde locks went once before) when she became my surrogate mother and I was under extreme emotional turmoil, when I was 8… Just because she liked short hair.

But after a decade of the exact same hair, I went to see an older, Italian gentleman for my usual trim as he was closer to home than my usual place.

Shades of “Midnight in Paris”.
The only way for the story to work, would be for Kriblack to roll up in a ’20s Peugeot. Zelda would be pleased to see her.

And Pizza would become a safe bet again.

Wow – I can relate to this … i have been wondering lately where my motivation and discipline are? I seem to have skipped the gene/transit/astro that makes one want to be the best they can be. I feel like I am awakening from a long period of burying my head in the sand. I am trying to get clear on the answer also – did I give up or did I never really try? Why not? What am I afraid of?

Yes I also do not like planning a hair cut. I tend to get it cut randomly when I have a spare hour and am wandering about. If someone is unavailable I put it off for months until the next spontaneous stitch in time opens up. My hair is also fine and slow to grow, the succulent of the hair world,can be ignored quite frequently..

I’ve been seeing so many ravens and crows lately.

My last two haircuts from my long term wonderful hairdresser haven’t been as good as usual. Last time I addressed what I didn’t like and showed pictures and I thought he got it but he still hasn’t cut it how I like it… about to go back for lucky number 3.

I found him when I came to Melbourne at around 19 years old and have been going to him all that time because he’s such a good cutter for short hair.
