It's About Time: Rachel McAdams Through the Years

When we heard Rachel McAdams was in "About Time," her third movie about time travel, we were sure that this time, she'd be the one skipping through the centuries. After all, she's paid her dues. In "The Time Traveler's Wife," she played a wife often left in the lurch by her time-traveling husband. Her "Midnight in Paris" role, as the fiancée (turned ex-fiancée) of a time-traveling writer, left her similarly stranded.   read more

A 'Game of Thrones' Inspired Halloween Makeover

Full disclosure: I've wanted to recreate Danaerys' look for a while now (and not just around Halloween-time). Her makeup is soft and natural, and do not even get me started on how awesome her hair is, even when it's dirty and messy from trekking through the plains of Essos. So when we decided to give our editorial assistant Emily a GoT-style makeover for Halloween, I geeked out -- a lot. Not only is Dany a total badass and gorgeous to boot -- she's also got dragons. And while we couldn't quite hatch our own from petrified eggs like she does, we could order a mini one from Amazon. Channel the Mother of Dragons' fiery nature with our step-by-step guide and make your claim to the Iron Throne.   read more

Sleep On It: 5 Overnight Hairstyles That Let You Wake Up and Go

One of the biggest time-depleters in the morning? Your hair. Sure, you can swipe on some lipstick in the parking lot before you head into the office, but good luck fitting your blow dryer and your curling iron into your purse (let alone finding an accessible outlet). And yet, nothing lets the world know you hit snooze a dozen times like bed head, cowlicks, and noticeable dry shampoo overload.   read more

Easy Long Hairstyles for a Rainy Day

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

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.
