5 Updos in 3 Steps or Less

What is it about long hair that makes a gal get a little lazy? Think about it: Do you (or your long-haired pals) have one -- maybe two -- signature hairstyles? And do both of those involve wearing your hair down and straight or down and curled?   See hairstyles

Behind the Scenes at the Bang Bar

I first wanted bangs when I was 6 years old. It was the mid-80's, and my little sister had a blunt fringe that would have made Jane Birkin jealous. (She also had hair as thick and straight as heavy drapery.) I begged my mom for bangs, but she made it clear that with my round face and curly hair it would never happen. No way. Zero chance.   See bangs

Pinterest Road Test: Hair Edition

Pinterest is my SimCity.
It's my fantasyland where I can pin all the DIY décor of my dreams onto my "home sweet home" board -- then pretend I actually live in a house with hammocks hanging on my non-existent patio.   See pictures

8 Gorgeous Hairstyles for Frizz-Prone Hair

When it comes to dealing with frizzy hair, it seems like the only advice we ever hear is how to tame it: Use "smoothing" shampoo, flat iron your hair until it's crisp, then finish it with two cups of anti-frizz gel and a cloud of hairspray. Sound about right?   See styles

6 New Haircuts for Long Hair

I've had long hair envy for a long time. (I blame Gisele, perfect human specimen that she is.) But getting my own hair to grow longer than mid-back just isn't a possibility. Vitamins, scalp treatments, avoiding even trims -- all futile.   See haircuts

How to Wear Neon Hair After 30

I have a friend with neon hair. She's 34 years old -- not 24, not 14 -- and it looks amazing. Now, I'll add that she lives in New York City, where pretty much anything goes. She also has a funky designer wardrobe and spends a lot of time in art galleries -- so the neon hair works with her personality and lifestyle. It's chic, sophisticated, and surprisingly subtle. And while I'm not suggesting every woman can pull it off, it's a lot easier than you might think.   See looks

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.
