'My Client's Hubby Hit on Me -- While I Was Doing Her Brazilian!'

Anyone who's worked in customer service knows that abuse is inevitable, but boundaries are even more easily breached when you work in the beauty industry. It's ironic that the people who treat some of our most delicate private parts -- heck, there are places on your body that only God and your waxer will ever see -- sometimes get brutal treatment in return. We asked beauty industry professionals -- facialists, waxers, hairstylists, massage therapists, makeup artists -- to spill some of their worst and most hilarious client experiences. Read on for the "WTF?" moments they shared.   read more

How To Clip Your Nails In Space & More Gravity-Defying Astronaut Beauty Secrets

You'd have to be living under a rock to not hear the Oscar buzz surrounding Alfonso Cuarón's film "Gravity" and Sandra Bullock's performance in it.

A retired US Air Force colonel and 21-year NASA veteran, Coleman e-mailed and chatted with Bullock while on her third space mission, where she served as a flight engineer aboard the Russian Soyuz TMA-20 spacecraft and spent 159 days aboard the International Space Station (ISS) as the lead robotics and science officer.   read more

Diary of a Tummy Tuck

I'm 45 years old, 5'9" and 250 pounds. The last time I was truly happy with my figure was about 20 years ago. After having my two children, the weight crept on and never really left.

GPS for Your Headaches

I'm the queen of headaches. And while some are melodramatic, shut-out-the-world stress pounders, others are completely debilitating, what-did-I-do-to-feel-this-way headaches. The cause could be not drinking enough water, not sleeping enough, too much stress ... the list goes on and on. Headaches can manifest in a number of zones around the head -- a dull pang at the back of the head, constant throbbing at thetemples -- so it's even more difficult to nail down the exact reason for the pain.   read more

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.
