This hairstyle depicts the fierceness of the fire sign: Aries. They are fearless individuals who aren’t afraid of challenges and dive into every situation head first( which is actually symbolic if you ask us as the body part associated with Aries is the head). This hair-do makes the person come off as intense and someone who isn’t afraid to get out of their shell, and that’s exactly how Aries is. Along with depicting the fierceness of an Aries, it also portrays creatures that are upbeat, and enjoy living life to the fullest, hence an Aries. We don’t see another sign suiting for this hairstyle as no other sign would be able to do it justice as much as an Aries can.

This hairstyle illustrates the nature of people. Just like smooth from the top, generally, people come off as straight and bland when you initially meet them as the relationship is still new they haven’t gelled up with you, but as the time passes and the relationship progresses you start finding new things and unique things about them just like the frizz, which starts making things interesting and not so bland. And as you get to know them more they unveil something more exciting about them just like this frizzy hair. And this is how the relationship gets intriguing, one frizzy hair strand at a time but just like the frizzy curve, things are not always smooth in a relationship there are lots of bends and curves to it. A relationship is never going to be plain and smooth if it gets like that, it’d become boring, there would be nothing new for you to explore about that person that you have that relationship with and that relationship there and then will become stagnant. These bends and frizz not only denote the interesting and intriguing things one explores about the person they are in a relationship but also all the problems that one encounter while throughout the whole lifespan of a relationship as it is impossible for any two people to share the same views about everything and thank god it’s not the case, because it was there wouldn’t have been any scope of growth and change, which is really crucial to grow as a person, as a part of growing up is changing your views about something which you once sought to be right as things are never as simple as right or wrong, or black and white, there’s always that grey area where everyone and every relationship subsists
