How I Mimic Paris Fashion Week Beauty How I Mimic Paris Fashion Week Beauty

If you're like me, you spent last week ooh-ing and aah-ing over the latest runway looks at Paris Couture Fashion Week. Sure, there were a few SMH moments, like the Cindy-Lou Who updos at Alexis Mabille (see, below) but otherwise, I was smitten.

How I Keep My Curls Frizz-Free During the Summer How I Keep My Curls Frizz-Free During the Summer

Yay! I Finally Learned How to Do a Waterfall Braid! Yay! I Finally Learned How to Do a Waterfall Braid!

I am un-coordinated. This fact is old hat to regular readers of this column but, in the interest of making any new kids on the block feel right at home, I thought I'd self-flagellate a bit. Yes, it's true that when god was doling out thumbs, I got five. But just because I'm not the most adroit gal at the beauty counter doesn't mean I don't like to try my hand at certain "getting…
