Easy Curly Hairstyles

Our office is in love with curls of all shapes, sizes and swirls right now, but going curly isn't easy for everyone. Some of us were born with board-straight hair ... others have the kind of kinky, tight curls that give new meaning to the word "frizz." But we've learned how to overcome those obstacles to perfect curly hair by finding styles the suit our hair type and length. We challenged our editors and interns to work up with their favorite curly style. From gorgeous ringlets to all-natural kink, we're showing off our best curly looks.   read more

Beat-the-Heat Summer Hairstyles

I'm crazy about summer. Nothing beats poolside lounging, watermelon slices, sundresses and endless nights. Unfortunately, my hair does not feel the same way -- even though I love the feeling of sand in my toes, sun on my face (with sunscreen!) and saltwater on my skin, my hair does not appreciate mixing with all of the elements. It stubbornly refuses to be anything besides a big, frizzy, hot mess.   read more

We Tried It: 5 Flat Hair Fixes

Some things in life are better flat: pancakes, mirrors, washboard abs. Hair? Not so much (ditto soda, live music, and your chest in 6th grade). Limp, lifeless hair is a downer, and getting that full, bouncy, flowing head of hair you see in slow motion on so many shampoo commercials isn't just a matter of buying the right product.   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.
