August is always a time of change and new beginnings, and this year even more so! With the sun ensconced firmly in the fire sign of Leo during the month of August, expect a lot of drama, whether in your home or work life.
August hairstyles feature some short and sleek looks, as well as some dramatic changes. The full moon on the 3rd will push most signs in a creative direction, so that would be a great time to change up your look, but expect a little more self-consciousness and reflection around the 18th with the new moon.
With love and networking opportunities on the horizon for many of you, make sure you are looking your best to make the most of whatever comes your way. Here’s what you can expect this month depending on your sign:

With August's new moon in passionate and self-assured Leo, you likely feel a surge of inspiration. As an ambitious sign yourself, there's a good chance that you are finding a turning point of some sort in both your work and love life. You might feel a bit crazed and overwhelmed, but don't worry. This is just your natural urge to "get it all done" that is shining through with your ruling planet, Mars moving through organized Virgo. Now is a perfect time to take a breath and focus on yourself.
Sometimes, what you need is a big change to get ready for all the shifting in your life, and nothing is more emblematic of change like a fresh cut. Book a hair appointment for sometime around the full moon on August 22nd with your most trusted stylist and consider straight blunt bangs. That's when your stylist will be feeling their best too!
Curtain bangs are falling to the wayside for Autumn, and long straight bangs are fiercely on-trend for fall! Some people hesitate about getting bangs because they don't want to deal with the daily styling, but you're an Aries. As the most 'go-getter' of the fire signs, we know you can handle it. When styling your bangs, you can use the Envy Blowout Brush. It's the smaller of the two blowout brushes by Flirt. With the brush beneath damp bangs, dry while you style, creating a slight inward curl.

With Uranus in retrograde, that brings some chaotic energy to bear, especially because you’re so used to staying as comfortable as possible. Although this can be taxing at first, if you can channel your energies you can become the best version of yourself. The sun will move into your fellow Earth sign on the 22nd, which will be an excellent time of confidence for you.
Use this burst of confident energy to make a change in your hair. And we aren’t just talking about a small change. Now is the time to go for the pixie cut you’ve probably always dismissed. This timeless look is always in, and if you make your appointment for the 22nd, you will have the confidence to pull it off. Once you get your new hairdo home, use the Lovestruck Mini Turbo Dryer to make some magic with your favorite products, and you can use the negative ion technology and faster drying time to be out on the town in no time! After a year of sticking close to home, it is time to flaunt the new you!

August is sure to be a big month for you. As the twin, you value looking at new opportunities from all sides. This is your best trait. Venus moves into your money sector on the 7th, so think carefully about how you want to use your abundance. You might have to shake off your old ways to appreciate the magic of who you really are. And with the sun moving into Virgo on the 22nd, it is time for you to shine as well. Your ruling planet, Mercury, shares quite a kinship with Virgo, so consider this a great moment to create some domestic harmony.
There is no better way to spend time with family far and near than by taking a trip to see some long lost relatives, or going back to a place you visited in your youth. Flirt definitely has you covered with our Blush Mini Flat Iron, which is perfect for on-the-go. This ergonomic, tiny tool packs easily in your carry-on, and it locks in moisture and straightens your cuticles on every pass.

We aren’t telling you anything you don’t know to say that you are a sensitive soul, with the moon as your planetary ruler. And with the sun holding firm to your finances and security until the 22nd, you will feel like tucking in close to yourself during August, and keeping up with the people and habits that make you feel safe.
But consider the new moon on the 18th as a jumpstart to try something new, especially where your social life is concerned. With Uranus in retrograde on the 15th, this is an ideal time to make a change with your hair to impress someone on a first date or hang with some new friends.
Changing your part is a good way to make a grab at the new while still maintaining some security. By changing the way you part your hair, or giving up your part altogether, you can give yourself a whole new look without doing anything too drastic.
Leo (July 23-August 22)

With chatty Mercury in your house at the beginning of the month offering you clarity and energy, this is a good time to take stock of who you are, which is effortlessly fierce.
It might be time to get bangs, or get a shorter hair do, but if you are really listening to the ramblings of Mercury, you should try a mullet. You’re certainly confident enough to rock it.
Rest assured that the mullet is only going to be bigger in 2021. I mean who wouldn’t want a little business in the front and party in the back? By the time the new moon shows up in your sign, you should be feeling both peaceful and energized. Be careful with how you spend both your energy and money towards the end of the month, because after all of your celebrating, you might be a little short on both. That is why the reasonably priced Envy Blowout Brush will be the perfect tool to style your new locks, since it is four tools in one.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Though you might start the month in a bit of a funk, do not fret. Once the sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd, you will be the sought after opinion at work, at home, and in your friend group. Take some time to pamper yourself with a new hairstyle or some new clothes, because September is sure to be your month! If you can take the time to get outside, you will totally be glad you did! As long as you are playing at the beach, create the beachy wave to pamper and play.
A sleek look is both sharp and manicured, which you’ll love. Our Blush Mini Flat Iron features not only far-infrared heat, but negative ion technology which helps seal in moisture with every pass. It will also fit seamlessly into whatever bag you pack, which is the kind of organization a Virgo craves.

Your spunk and personality will dazzle the world even more than usual this month. Always the life of the party and someone who likes to shine, take this time to bring your A game to your hairstyle. Let’s face it, though, you don’t have a lot of time to spend on your hair because you are so busy networking and trying to make connections both in and outside of the office. You’re always seeking balance.
Try our Lovestruck Mini Turbo Dryer, which will give you the blowout power you crave in a small package. With its powerful DC motor and Tourmaline Ceramic Technology, you will cut your drying time and leave your hair more manageable and shiny. Once you get the blowout you desire, use a few cheap, creative clips to create a new flirty look. The Uranus retrograde is poised to be your new best friend, but you will have to push yourself a bit in order to benefit.

This month you need to consider how to protect your energies, especially where your love life is concerned. Things have been so busy for you that the homefront is in disarray. If you are going to have enough time to fix things up, you are definitely going to need a SIMPLE hairstyle and an ultra-simple styling routine.
Try the Envy Blowout Brush, which can dry, curl, smooth, and volumize, to get you the look you desire. After enjoying our ergonomic design and fast drying time, style your hair as desired before pulling it back loosely into a perfectly coiffed ponytail.
You might also want to try a bubble ponytail look if your hair is extra long. The ponytail can take you from day to night and will certainly help you ease up on your energy expenditure. The retrograde of Uranus may cause some spinning with your love interest, so you need to be flexible and look at your own responsibilities first before getting tied down to someone else’s drama. But with a ponytail in place you will be poised for love or jobs, whatever comes your way!!

With the sun planted firmly in the other half of your fire sign early this month, you will be in the mood to play during the month of August. This is the perfect time to get away if you can make it happen, and you can take the Blush Mini Flat Iron and Lovestruck Mini Turbo Dryer along with you!
Even if you have to take a night or two in a town near you for a staycation, use your curious nature to have some fun this month. As someone who is always pursuing something new, you surely don’t need any help finding things to do!

When Venus the lover moves into your partnership house on the 7th, keep your eye on the prize (remember of course that beauty is in the eye of the beholder!), but make sure to leave your rose-colored glasses at home.
You, my dear, are infatuated with love, so you need to make sure that your relationship is real before you jump in with both feet. If you are not sure if the attraction is real or just a passing fling, you could test your lover, of course, by making some big changes. Go for color! You have the discipline to keep up with the touch-ups. If your bae freaks out, they are not the one for you.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

The full moon kicks off in your sign, which may lead you to get some attention from lovers or colleagues. Though you may not get the recognition you deserve during the full moon at the beginning of the month, by the time the Uranus retrograde rolls around it will be time to focus on you and how you best want to deal with your family and living situations.
This is a good time to get rid of the things (and perhaps people) who are no longer serving you. At Flirt, we always turn to hair, and the end of the month would be a great time for you to ditch your tired look. One of the hottest styles right now is the lob. Ever rebellious, you can individualize your lob with some edgy angles.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Although always fun-loving, look to the 7th of the month when Venus will bring your playfulness and charm into full scale, and make sure to enjoy the heck out of this self-expressive time. You are the artist and the dreamer. Your creativity is on full spike this month.
That’s why we suggest trying one of the hottest and most expressive trends for August: Reddish balayage highlights. By adding this touch of red, you are not only on trend for fall, but adding a dash of romance to your look. You shine as a creative spirit, so feel free to experiment with the warm color you choose. Lighter hair types might feel more comfortable trying a pink, whereas darker hair looks stunning with cinnamon rouge.
