If you were born with an Aries Ascendant, then you’ll want to learn more about famous Aries Rising celebrities and their style.

So if you have an Aries Ascendant, or Aries Rising, in your natal chart, then this zodiac sign rules the First House of your birth chart, influencing your appearance, profile and how others take you at ‘face value’.
Lots of famous people were born with Aries Rising, affecting our first impression of them based on what we see at surface level through their physical appearance, outfits and image.
Aries Ascendant Appearance: What do Aries Rising look like?
There’s a rock star quality to many famous Aries Rising celebrities, who are often most recognised for their striking facial features, hairstyles and hats.
The Aries Rising aesthetic leads from the head first and this is typically what we notice first about people who have this placement in their birth chart.
Sharp haircuts, red lipstick and big hats are typical Aries Rising style traits and they love being noticed for their strong fire sign aesthetic.
Aries Rising Personality Traits
You may hear Aries Risings before you see them, as fire signs make their presence known through their passionate opinions and loud voices. Aries Rising singers and actors have clear, direct voices that don’t have any problems being heard.
Although Aries Ascendants look like natural leaders, positioning themselves as the frontman/woman of the band or star of the show, it might not be a role that feels all that comfortable to them. Aries Rising can often be perceived as the leader when they’re actually more happy taking on a less high profile role. Depending on the rest of their birth chart, an Aries Rising might not have the natural leadership qualities that someone with an Aries Sun has.
People born with Aries in the 1st House have Mars as their chart ruler. This can often give the impression that they are passionate, combative and argumentative. Unless they have a softer Sun sign or Moon sign, this cardinal sign energy can be intimidating to people when they first meet the Aries Ascendant.
