Make healthy eating choicesIf you're working on getting fit and sticking to a healthy diet, going out to eat with friends and family can turn into a stressful situation. Getting in shape shouldn't hold you back from social events and having fun! Personally, I love trying out popular restaurants, meeting friends for brunch, and celebrating birthday dinners. Here are some ways to make the best choices when you're faced with an overwhelming menu:

- Do your research: Most chain restaurants publish their menu online, so you can take a look long before you order.
- Start with soup: One of my favorite soups is Split Pea which I'll order instead of crunchy, fried, finger foods.
- Save the bread basket: Hold your horses a little longer and enjoy the food you

1. Consider Color: Are you changing your hair color for your big night? If you've made any drastic changes in hue, such as going from medium brunette to honey blond, you'll want to find a new brow shade that complements both your hair color and your skin tone. However, if you're just getting subtle highlights or going one or two shades lighter or darker, there's no need to change your brow color.

You can buy a pack of condoms for about $10 at the drugstore and don't need a doctor's note or parent's permission. Basically, condoms are thin latex or plastic sheaths that cover the penis to protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). They come in different sizes so no guy (serious no guy) can tell you he's "too big to wear one"). If you or your guy are allergic to latex, you can buy non-latex condoms too. If you can't afford condoms, you can get them for free at almost any health clinic. Click here to find one close to you. Condoms are 82 percent effective with typical use (meaning some people don't use it correctly or it fails).

Just like male condoms, female condoms protect against pregnancy and STIs and look pretty similar.

The Hunger Games movie would not be complete if it didn't have Katniss' signature side braid or Effie's ever-changing hair color (is it blue, pink, or orange?). Now, with the help of set hairstylist Linda Flowers, we learn the secrets of the styles that brought our favorite characters to life!
Seventeen: What was your inspiration for the hairstyles you came up with for the characters in the movie?
Linda Flowers: I collaborated a lot with Judianna Makovsky, our costume designer. I looked at the clothes and they are cut very classically and are very beautifully tailored. I knew the hair needed to have harmony with that. I used very contemporary shapes and deep finger waves from the 30s and 40s and looser ones from the 50s with the bright colors. Then, I incorporated weird fuzzy textures into these classic styles. I mixed classic hairstyles and shapes with contemporary colors and textures. Everybody loved it!

1. File Your Trip
File Your Trip
The Smart Traveller Enrollment Program (STEP) allows you to register your trip online. "That way the State Department knows which Americans are located in an area if something should occur," says Dando. By providing an email, they are able to send you any alerts for the area where you are staying.
2. Get Insured
On top of your regular insurance at home, it is essential to get a policy that works overseas and includes care for any preexisting conditions. "It is important to look for insurance that covers evacuation," in the case of a political or natural disaster, says Dando.
