The Best (and Worst) Celebrity Yearbook Photos

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

13 Best Products for Curly Hair

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

We Tried It: The Miracurl

We have a soft spot for curly, wavy hairstyles, so you can imagine how jazzed we were when saw those commercials for the Miracurl, the world's first fully-automatic curling machine that claims to curl hair in less than half the time of a typical barrel curler. Sounds like a dream.   read more

Get the Look: Selena Gomez's Sleek VMA Hair

Miley Cyrus' completely inappropriate "LOOK AT ME" twerk and jerk performance may be the (tacky) talk of last night's MTV Video Music Awards, but we'd like to yank the spotlight away from such miscreant behavior and shine it on someone who has long been a positive role model for young girls and has developed into a full-blown classy act -- Selena Gomez.   read more

Miley Cyrus Is Sick to Death of Her Short Hair (Been There!)

Back then, she told anyone who would listen about how empowering her new style was and how much she loved it.

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.
