Mermaids are portrayed as beautiful, siren-like creatures with gorgeous, long locks; glowing skin and perfect makeup that never runs. But in real life, we know Ariel's fire-engine red hair wouldn't stand a chance against the sun and water. Skin without SPF would burn and blister (not to mention, leave some serious clamshell tan lines), and we'd hate to think of the prune-like state our fingers and toes would be in after a lifetime submerged. What's a mermaid to do? We asked the closest thing to it, members of the Aqualillies, a professional synchronized swimming troupe, who can spend a whole day in the water, and still look gorgeous. Here, their best summer hair, makeup and skin care secrets against which chlorine, sun and surf don't stand a chance. read more
Every once in awhile it's necessary to indulge in a li'l treat, whether it's the chocolate-encrusted doughnut you cut out of your diet months ago or a luxurious day at the spa.

I'll admit it -- I'm a busy lady, which means I typically don't wash and dry my hair every morning. And when I do, it's always a long, arduous process full of waiting, heating, and styling. Which is why I don't know what I ever did before the invention of dry shampoos. Talk about an absolute game changer. See dry shampoos
If a little bit is good, then a lot must be better, right? Not when it comes to your beauty products. According to experts, the products we use on a daily basis adhere to the Goldilocks principle. Too small of a dollop may mean your anti-aging serum may not work at all, but too big of a blob of deep conditioner could mean greasy hair and split ends (not to mention a depleted bank account). read more

If you're like most women, then you're concerned about the appearance of your hair, and will do what it takes to take care of it. Starting now, it's time to banish dull and dry hair from your life, and take better care of your hair to get lustrous locks that will turn heads. To help you, Total Beauty offers you expert tips on hair care for shiny, glossy hair.
If your hair is in good condition and is healthy, then your hair care regime will only need a few tweaks to keep your tresses looking great. One way to have healthy hair is to maintain a healthy lifestyle; your mane will be in better condition, naturally. Your daily diet should include plenty of water, as well as lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Opt for grilled or baked dishes rather than fried food, and limit your intake of cola or coffee, which have excess caffeine.
Perming, bleaching, or coloring frequently cause damage to your hair as they strip the shaft of its natural oils. Experts say that hair should have at least eight percent moisture for it to look silky and shiny. Using products meant for chemically treated hair can protect your tresses and make them look smooth and glossy.
Look through Total Beauty's hair care section to discover great secrets for gorgeous locks. Total Beauty offers some of the best hair care advice on the web, so you can have great hair all the time.
