Stop damaging your hair. No really, stop. You're only hurting yourself here. We know you're shivering when you jump out of the shower and that you just want to blast your hair with that warm blow dryer of yours, but if you care at all about having healthy hair, you will throw on a robe and do the right thing: properly prep your hair for heat styling. Any hair care expert will tell you that in order to prevent hair damage and breaking, it is crucial to apply some sort of heat protecting hair care product like a spray, serum, mousse or cream before subjecting your strands to high temperatures from irons and dryers.

When I wake up and see rain coming down outside, my first thought is, "Well, I'm going to look like crap today." I've never seen a point in really doing my hair if the rain and humidity will turn it into a frizzy, droopy heap in 60 seconds. I go for the classic, easy (okay, lazy) rainy day hair: a quick topknot or messy bun. read more
After an illustrious career in the trenches at L'Oreal, Avon and Coty, Stuart Sklar knows a thing or two about the beauty industry. And, having his finger firmly placed on its pulse is what prompted him -- way back in 2005 -- to open Blow, a blow-dry only styling bar, in New York City's meat-packing district. read more

What's the best thing about the spring 2014 beauty trends I spotted backstage at New York Fashion Week? They're super simple. The overall theme I spotted: natural makeup (sometimes with a statement lip or major mascara), bare nails, and barely-done hair. So when you want to take a break from fall's deep, rich looks (think: punk eyeliner and berry lip stain), brush up on the hair, makeup, and nails you'll be wearing soon enough. read more

After more than a decade and a half of report cards and homework, I still get that back-to-school feeling once September rolls around. Only, my version of "back-to" shopping is now more briefcases and reloading Starbucks cards than backpacks and binder paper. I'll miss the pep rallies and Friday football games for a few minutes, but I definitely don't miss the awkward pre-pubescent emotional rollercoster, braces, bad haircuts or the perpetual breakouts high school memories are made of. read more
Those of us with curly hair know that it can be both a blessing and a curse. When it behaves, nothing's better than having a head full of perfect ringlets or waves that cascade over your shoulders. But, when it's acting ornery or piqued, look out. Thirsty, frizzy, stressed out curls are never pretty. And, when we try to wrestle those same misbehaving curls into submission, it only makes things worse. (Because, really, the only thing that looks worse than fried curls are fried curls that have been further fried in an attempt to make them behave.) Best curl products
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.
