Summer Beauty Makeovers

On a recent Saturday morning three moms walked into the Argyle Salon and Spa on Los Angeles' famed Sunset Strip. And, while the celeb-centric spot welcomes hundreds of clients through its mahogany doors six days a week, these three were different -- none had taken the time to "maintain" their naturally good looks or spent money on being primped, in a long, long time.   See makeovers

America's 8 Ugliest Cities

To determine who's the ugliest of them all, we looked at many studies and opinion polls on said undesirable qualities, from our own surveys like the Eight Cities with the Ugliest Guys (which considers how much sex the locals might not be having) to sources like Travel and Leisure Magazine, the American Fitness Index, U.S. News and World Report, Sperling's Best Places, Gallup, Men's Health and Forbes.com. We also looked up the birthplaces and residences of the ugliest celebrities named by The Good Surgeon Guide, AOL and by us in our personal list of ugly celeb guys. (To those who say, "but that's just, like, your opinion, man," we say, "okay, celebrities are usually somewhat attractive ... but have you SEEN these people?")   See list

Easiest Ways to Reduce Stress and Body Tension

Let's start with the obvious assertion that the world we live in is a hectic and overwhelming place. Now let's move on to the less appropriate reaction we often have to this frenzied existence: total freak-out, meltdown, why-me?, fists-banging-on-the-floor tantrums that are scarily as reckless as Britney Spears shaving her head (a health and beauty cry for help that landed her, among other celebrities, in The Biggest Beauty Blunders of All Time photo gallery). Or, even more dramatic, we suffer from depression, over eating, insomnia and a host of other serious side effects from the heart-attack king known as "stress." See how to relieve stress and body tension now.   See tips

Wedding Day Beauty Countdown

It seems the second that princess-cut diamond is slipped on your finger you're expected to launch into full-force bridal mode. Well-meaning friends and family ask you about the date, venue, and of course, the dress. To say it's overwhelming would be a huge understatement.   See countdown

A Beauty Fan's Guide to Facebook

Ah Facebook, perhaps one of the greatest websites ever created, well besides TotalBeauty.com (of course) -- shameless, we know. Started by some computer science nerds at Harvard, the little-social-networking-site-that-could quickly expanded to become everyone's favorite destination for distraction. People love it for a variety of reasons, which is probably why it has been such a huge cultural phenomenon. Where else can you keep up with friends and family, spy on ex-boyfriends, network or even see how many pounds the prom queen gained since high school? Whether you joined to build virtual farms (no judgment), or if you're like us and just wanted another place to gab about beauty products and makeup trends; you aren't alone in your obsessive adoration of the site.   See pages

Health & Beauty Guide

There's so much health & beauty information available that it's sometimes hard to sort through it all. Fortunately, Total Beauty has a health and beauty guide that will take the guesswork out of finding the best products, advice, and tips for you. You'll be able to find the information you're looking for by checking out our articles, galleries, and videos, any time, day or night.



Taking care of your health is very important and if you can look good in the process, it's an added bonus. Usually, eating well and exercising will help you stay beautiful naturally, but there will always be pesky beauty problems that pop up (we're looking at you, backne). When that happens, it may be tempting to try some outlandish trick that you heard about through the grapevine or outrageously expensive tonic your favorite celebrity swears by. We say listen to the experts and you'll be able to take care of your health and appearance, while getting the most bang for your buck. With Total Beauty, you'll always have a resource where you can find expert advice on the best ways to take care of yourself using natural, gentle products and tried and true techniques.
