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

The Beauty We F-ing Love From Couture Week (Pardon Our French)

It's hard not to be enamored with all things French. There's the baguette, a little slice of heaven that make sandwiches seem so elegant. There are the twee, rainbow-colored macarons (which always remind us of the gorgeous excesses of the Original Diva, Marie Antoinette). Even the croissant, which we know is a butter bomb, blows our humble toast out of the water. Don't even get me started on crepes, Champagne, frites and French kissing. What a culture!   read more

Straight Up: Sandra Bullock vs. Kendall Jenner

We'd like to salute the brave, committed beauties who believe in straight hair despite the lengths it takes to get it just right. The smoothing serums, the heat protectants, the flat irons and shine glosses -- we know it's not easy being straight. In this face-off between Sandra Bullock and Kendall Jenner, the two straight hairstyles are a refreshing change-up to the beachy wave movement we've seen everywhere lately. The two look strikingly similar (and straightforwardly ah-ma-zing), but we want to hear from you: Who wears it best?   read more

TSwift vs. Carly Rae: The Bangin' Topknot

We love debating the finer points of the topknot. Is it "in" or "out"? Is it better sexy and disheveled or sleek and taut? And which celebs pull it off with style? Taylor Swift and Carly Rae Jepsen both have signature bangs, but when pulled into a trendy bun, the two songbirds transform instantly. TSwift's look is soft and romantic, styled elegantly for the Fragrance Foundation Awards. Carly Rae's style is more playful and chic, done for a performance on Good Morning America. So we're asking you: Which celeb got it right?   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.
