According to the haircut lunar calendar, phases of the moon affect your hair growth and can even affect your overall health. Each month, there are “favorable” and unfavorable” days to snip your hair. The singer cut her hair on October 23 when the moon was in the waning crescent phase, meaning she’d get positive energy and get “beautiful, luxuriant and silky” hair, as the chart indicates.
