Celebrity Hairstyles: Oscar Beauty Predictions

So are you ready for Hollywood's biggest night? Do you have your office pool all set up? You know, the one that predicts who is going to win Best Actress, Director, Film, etc. at this year's Oscars? Guessing who's going to take home the little, gold, bald guy is half the fun of the Academy Awards hoopla, right? The other half of the fun, for any hair, makeup, fashion-loving fiend, is seeing how your favorite celebrities look at the momentous occasion. See, there is a reason why the pre-show on the red carpet, detailing every inch of a celebrities' look, lasts almost as long as the show itself.   See predictions


Date-Worthy Hair and Makeup Looks

If you're single, you already know dating can be a tough scene. So many questions plague the modern day woman: Should I pay? Should I call him first? If he doesn't call, should I call? Or text? Blah, blah, blah. With so many uncertainties, it's good to have one thing you're totally sure about as you set out on each and every dating adventure -- that you look and feel like your sexiest self.   See date looks


Sexy Side Ponytails


Sexy Side Ponytails

If you're like us, your hair spends most of its time in a ponytail. We know, we know, you just can't help it. But instead of telling you to totally break out of this rut (OK, OK, we will suggest you do this on occasion, just not today), we thought we'd help you graduate this hairstyle staple to the next logical look: the side pony. It's amazing how shifting your pony three or four measly inches to the left or right can totally up the fun and sexy factor of this classic updo. This is likely why celebrities are bringing back this whimsical 'do in a big way -- it's a great way to put a flirtatious spin on an old classic.   See side pony styles


Hot Celebrity Hairstyle Trend: Textured Styles

Who knew haphazard hair could look so chic? We are used to seeing these "bedhead" styles splashed across celebrity weeklies when stars get caught on a Starbucks run by the paparazzi, but these relaxed 'dos are making their way out of bed and onto the red carpet. From movie premiers to award shows, short to long hair, these playful textured looks are making big waves in Hollywood.   See textured styles


Step-By-Step: How to Diffuse Curly Hair

If you have curly hair (or just want curly hair) then a diffuser is a must-have item in your beauty arsenal. What is a diffuser? It's an attachment for your blow dryer that changes the air flow from a direct stream of air to a more diffused (get it?) wide circle of air. This helps to minimize frizz, since there's less hot air aimed at any one part of your hair, so it's perfect for curls. If your blow dryer didn't come with a diffuser, you can buy a universal one that will attach onto the nozzle (just make sure it's the right diameter before you buy).   See how-to


Best Celebrity Hairstyles for Straight Hair

When it comes to having straight or curly hair, a lot of women seem to want what they can't have; straight-haired ladies love the curling iron and curly gals reach for the flat iron. Well, this year is all about working what you've got, which means straight-haired women of the world, unite -- it's time to start celebrating your sleek strands.   See straight looks


Best and Worst African-American Hairstyles

African American celebrities are some of the biggest hair trendsetters -- from Rihanna's short, edgy style (that is forever evolving) to Tyra's long, sleek strands, these ladies are known for their signature styles. And while many women attempt to recreate their looks, they never truly succeed at pulling them off quite as well. Why is that anyway?   See celebs


12 Trends to Try Now!

We love award shows for many different reasons. Some, like the Oscars, are fun to watch for the over-the-top red carpet looks. And others, like the MTV awards, are a trip to view with all the wacky and funky styles. However, few of the looks from either show can be worn to the grocery store or even to work or a cocktail party, right? That's why another one of our favorites is the People's Choice Awards. This year they went a bit more casual and the result was celebrities with fun -- and very wearable -- looks.   See trends


10 Best (and Two Worst) Magazine Covers of 2009

We paid homage to a lot of bests and worsts this year from the
Best Drugstore Shampoos to The 13 Worst-Hair Cities and even Best and Worst Celebrity Plastic Surgery. (If you missed seeing any of these lists on, it's okay -- check them out by clicking here.)   See covers

Hairstyles Guide and Information

Most women are constantly looking for new hairstyles -- whether it's to reinvent the way they look or for a special occasion. Each person is different, and choosing the right hairstyles to fit them will depend on the person's face shape, hair texture, and the occasion. If you're planning to spend the day at the mall or hang out at your friend's place watching movies, then you'll want to choose hairstyles which are relaxed and casual, and easy to maintain. On the other hand, occasions like weddings or prom demand more elaborate hairstyles, like beautiful updos that are elegant and complement your dress and accessories.

The right hairstyles can accentuate your best facial features while downplaying any flaws, redefining the way you look. The shape of your face can help determine the kind of hairstyles that will suit you best. For instance, if you have a round face, you might consider wearing your hair long to minimize the width of your face. However, if you have a longer face, you'll look great in hairstyles that are short with sweeping bangs which will give a wider appearance to your face.

To choose a cut that will best suit your style, look at pictures of other women who have similar faces and features to you, and who also have hairstyles that you like. More importantly, choose hairstyles that will help you feel comfortable, even if you're not conforming to all the rules.

With step-by-step instructional videos and articles on hairstyles at Total Beauty, you'll get expert advice and plenty of tips on hairstyles that are easy to create. You'll have lots of new hairstyles to discover each week, so you can create the look you want whenever you chose.
