No matter what we do, no matter how hard we try, we just can't replicate the blissful effects of an in-salon shampooing. But in this case, we're not complaining. Shu Uemura Art of Hair recently revealed its "ceremony room" in San Francisco's Joseph Cozza Salon, one of only three in the nation to have such a space. Tucked away from the main salon, the room gives clients the privacy to relax and unwind during the shampoo-and-condition process. There's also a bliss-inducing head massage that practically guarantees less stress. Add glossy lacquered walls and chilled-out music, and you might never want to be shampooed elsewhere ever again.

There are number of different shadow brushes out there, so how do you know which ones to choose? Depending on your desired look, different shapes and sizes of eye shadow tools will yield different effects on your eyes.
The two that are most important would have to be the fluffy brush for blending and the contour brush. But for more precision in your eye shadow application, take a look at the various types of brushes and their intended uses below:
Large, fluffy brushes with a rounded edge are great for larger areas of shadow that is applied between the crease and brow. These brushes are good for blending different colors and for highlighting the brow bone.
Contour brushes are the most important! Brushes with smaller and shorter bristles are perfect for smoothing out specific areas and contouring blended colors, especially around the corners of the eyes and on the eyelids themselves.
Flat, straight-edged brushes work great when you want to contain shadow to certain areas along the crease or edge of your eyelid. Like a paintbrush, the bristles are less fluffy and more compact, which allows for better accuracy.
Flat, angled brushes are for even greater precision around the edges of the lids, creases, and corners. Since they have a tapered tip, angled brushes will help you apply detail to specific areas and can also be used for eyeliner application.

Lea Michele was glowing at last night's Fox All-Star Party. The Glee leading lady opted for dewy makeup that was accented with a pastel pink lip, rosy cheeks, and lengthy lashes. But what really stole the show was her messy, rope-like side braid, which she paired with piecey bangs. This style is a perfect blending of fuss-free ease and glamour, easily transitioning from sidewalk to red carpet. To achieve her done-up undone look, prep your hair with a texturizing spray like Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves ($22) to give it some body and grip. Gather your hair behind one ear and braid. Secure with an elastic and then gently pull on the braid to widen it. Don't worry if a few pieces fall out — this style is meant to be undone. To give it a polished look, wrap a piece of hair around the elastic to hide it and secure with a bobby pin.
