Get fuller hair at home 1. Condition correctly.
If you've got fine hair, swap your conditioner for a leave-in spray version -- it's lighter than a standard smoother, says Newport, RI, stylist and salon owner Frank Barbosa. Just apply and rinse like a regular conditioner. Our pick: L'Oréal Paris EverCrème Nourishing Leave-In Spray ($9, drugstores).

2. Multitask with dry shampoo.
Score mega volume with this pro trick: Flip your head upside down and mist dry shampoo at the roots, then tousle with your fingers. The powder particles add heft to hair. Try: Dove Refresh + Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo ($4, in drugstores this month).
3. Boost your blowout.
Build volume as you blow-dry: Turn your head upside down, then brush hair and focus the dryer starting at the roots and moving down the length of a section. The heat will help set the roots so that when you flip your head back up, they'll stay lifted.

LubtidermWinter can bring its own set of troubles, with cold temps sending our skin into crisis mode. Even though it isn't very winter like down here, having smooth and moisturized skin is very important because we're showing it one way or another all year round. I'm always looking for a skin care product that not only moisturizes, but keeps that moisture all day long whether it's a great body wash or lotion. So our beauty guru assignment this month was on point, reviewing the Daily Moisture Shea and Calming Lavender Jasmine Lotion from Lubriderm. It has great skin ingredients such as Shea Butter and Vitamin B5 to help keep skin moisturized for up to 24 hours. The lavender and jasmine fragrance is there to help you relax.
The lotion smells great! I like the fact that it leaves my skin smelling nice but not so overpowering that I can't wear one of my favorite perfumes afterwards. It also passed the husband test - I noticed he went for the Lubriderm first instead of the normal one weRead More »from Shine Beauty Guru Review: Daily Moisture Lotion from Lubriderm
Jennifer Aniston wants to drastically change her signature look!
The former Friends star is known for playing it safe at glamorous events - often wearing a stylish, yet simple, black dress - and has vowed to shake up her style in 2012.
"I don't feel my age. I feel young every day. It's in the spirit," the 42-year-old actress told InStyle. "On the red carpet, it's time for me to start doing something different. I play it very safe because I just want to be comfortable ... if I could wear a jersey tank that went down to the floor, I would."
Jennifer also said she is considering dyeing her trademark blonde locks darker. "I've been thinking about dyeing my hair a dark brown. I feel it would be healthier."Jennifer Aniston

Valentine's Day is approaching which means candy, chocolate, flowers and....acne? It has long been believed that sweets (particularly chocolate) can lead to acne breakouts. Is this really true? Should you pass on the chocolate hearts to save your skin?
Before I answer I should first talk about what causes acne:
Causes of Acne
- Overproduction of oil
- Irregular shedding of dead skin cells
- Bacteria buildup
See more: Foods That Fight Cellulite
Acne occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Once the follicle becomes clogged it creates an environment where bacteria can thrive. Other factors that can worsen acne are:
- Hormones - Hormonal changes can result in acne, which is why teens and even pregnant women often experience breakouts.
- Medication - Certain medications are known to cause acne.
- Stress - Too much stress can also wreck havoc on your skin.

Almost everyone in entertainment rocks some kind of fake hair, and popular culture follows red-carpet looks. If 2011 was the year when our eyes were opened to long, lush hair extensions on Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, the female "Dancing with the Stars" pros - 2012 may be the year of the wig.
And I'm ready.
I bought mine last week when my friend was in town. I had no intention of doing so, but I looked so good in different styles compared to my weather-reactive natural hair that is either plastered to my head with sweat under the hot sun of South Florida or frizzed around my face like a halo in high humidity. We had a fun and fantastic afternoon of trying on different styles and colors at several different shops. We settled on a flippy blonde circa-2004 Meg Ryan for Gretchen. I got a modified short flirty brown with gold and copper highlights (think Florence Henderson in "TheRead More »from I'm Working a Wig

Ideal for for medium-length to long hair, this look is naturally sexy enough for an afternoon or outdoor date! A few hours before your V-Day plans, run Sebastian Taming Elixir through slightly damp hair and braid hair in two braids. About one hour before your date, take hair out of braids and shake loose. Apply Sebastian Molding Mud to the front section of your hair (about a two-inch section, from ear to ear), then twist across the hairline and pin behind the ear. Finish with Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity hair spray. If you have long hair, you can sweep hair to the side in a loose ponytail to finish the look.

Real Beauty editors reveal the styles they are dying to hijack, and these starlets are at the top of their hot hair hit list. This is much more than a childish crush - it's true love.
"Total hair crush! When I think of bombshell hair, there is no other than the voluminous, lengthy-locked Blake Lively. I mean, her hair even looks good messy! It's just not fair."- Deanne

"I love how Jessica Biel's hair is ombre'ed, but not exactly. The juxtaposition of blonde-on-brown is startling and unique, but not crazy fake-looking. In a world where most Hollywood starlets seem to think the blonder the better, her rich, deep brunette hue really stands out to me."- Leah

The year is starting off with a bang ... er, lots of bangs. More and more celebs are taking a page from Zooey Deschanel's book, and stepping out in long, statement-making fringe. There's Jessica Biel's ultra-trendy thick bangs; Taylor Swift's wispy style; and Olivia Wilde's side-swept ones. If you want to get in on the trend, there's more to consider than just the inevitability of growing them out.

Straight-across bangs, like Jessica Biel's and Taylor Swift's, are best for shortening a long face or a large forehead, says hairstylist Mark Townsend of the Sally Hershberger Salon in New York City. The most flattering ones hit between your eyebrows and lashes, and are cut with scissors (not a razor). Go for Biel's heavyRead More »from How to Get the Most Flattering Bangs

Snooki may have started a trend when she tweeted a makeup free look a few weeks back. Ke$ha, too, has gone natural by ditching the rainbow tresses and layers of eyeliner for an editorial shoot in this month's Glamour. The singer went simple with wispy waves and light makeup.
Aside from revealing her natural beauty underneath all that glitter, Ke$ha shared a little of her softer side as well as her usual badass talk.
On what turns her off: "I was dating a guy once who spoke rudely to a taxi driver. I got out of the cab and walked home. Treat people with respect. I've waited tables, and that's why I just exceedingly overtip. It's exhausting work."
On women succeeding in pop: I definitely think women are running it right now. We are not afraid to speak our minds. It's exciting because that's what I stand for, for people to be irreverent and to be themselves.
