If you were born between December 22 and January 19, then you are lucky enough to be born under the star sign of Capricorn. This sign, represented by the sea goat, is a down-to-earth, luxury loving sign that values hard work and material success. Cappie girls are all about the finest things in life, and tend to look like a million bucks on a daily basis. This isn’t to say they are materialistic and shallow. In fact, they are quite the opposite. Cap women want to make their own way in life and will work hard for everything they have, and in that case, they should have the best of everything!
Appearance-wise, sea-goat women tend to be slender with well-shaped bodies and very dainty legs, ankles and feet. Their skin, like all the earth signs, is clear and radiant, and they have very strong teeth; you’ll know a Cap woman as soon as you see her million dollar smile. Capricorn Kate Middleton is the perfect example of these traits
Capricorns are earthy beauties who are reliable, hard-working and independent. Capricorn women are usually at the top of their professional game, so their image often shows off their high status. These mountain-goats would rather buy one quality, classic item than a dozen cheaper, trendy ones, and the same goes for their hair.
Sea-goat women tend to have hair types of two extremes—either thick and wiry or thin and silky. It is usually medium to dark in colour as well.They love to use only the best hair styling products to keep their manes in check. Capricorns are known for having slender noses, wide smiles and prominent cheekbones. For Capricorns with weak or thin hair, finding styles to make their hair more voluminous is key.

Capricorn women, even with their awesome sense of humor, often get the bad rap of being the taskmasters of the zodiac. They may not be strict and serious 100% of the time, but they can certainly pull off ‘uptight’ hairstyles with ease. Think slicked back buns like Paz Vega’s here, tight ponytails and any other ‘do where the hair is pulled back in a tight fashion. Use some gel like Paz to get that ultra tight and slick look.

Mary J Blige is another successful Cap woman that knows how to work her features. Here, she flaunts a classic topknot and blunt fringe to highlight her amazing bone structure and those deep, dark eyes that Cappie girls are known for. This look can be achieved at home easily by wrapping the hair into a topknot and drying the bangs with a small round brush. If you have short hair, a hairpiece would work here also.
It’s a well-known fact that Capricorns actually reverse age, and look better with time. Just take a look at Julie Chen. With every year that passes by she looks even more youthful and glamorous. Here, Julie has embraced her Cap hair by wearing it long and wavy, letting its natural gloss and sheen be the mane attraction. Julie has thin hair like most of her Cap sisters and uses extensions to fill it out, as seen here.
