    You know that casual, messy, yet perfect bun you sometimes see on women? It looks like they just twisted their hair up into that 'do with one swift movement. But then you go home and try to do the same thing and it looks all kinds of wrong. Dah! Why is the "messy" bun so hard to pull off?

    Well, it's not. We just need the right tutorial -- and I found it! After looking at several different versions, I've found my very favorite how-to for the mussed-just-right top knot, that bun that makes you look like an effortlessly chic femme from Paris. And best of all, I tried it out myself, and if I can pull it off, anyone can.

    When it comes to skincare, I have good intentions, but, well ... I'm kind of lazy. I mean, I'm sometimes lazy; other times just plain exhausted from my day. However, I'm not getting any younger, so I've been working to make sure I don't flake out too often on my skincare routine.

    Here are some of my tips and tricks for taking care of your skin without spending a lot of time and effort ... from one lazy girl to another!

    Self-proclaimed "Human Barbie" Valeria Lukyanova has posted a makeup-free selfie to the web for all her fans. Normally, when celebrities (a term applied loosely here) share photos of themselves sans any sort of cosmetic enhancement, it's in an attempt to make them seem more like us -- more real and easier to relate to than they usually appear. But that's not the case here. Valeria posted this picture to prove that even without makeup, she's more Barbie-like than anyone else alive.

    It's hard to argue with her. The various surgical procedures she's had done over the years have made her resemble everyone's favorite plastic girl-doll. Her extremely small waist, her wide eyes, and her seemingly pore-free skin definitely exude Barbie. Still, whether she wants to admit it or not, she definitely looks better with less makeup on. I mean, she still looks insane, but the crazy is toned down a notch. Or 12.

    My once-blond hair has been getting darker and darker, especially since I haven't had the time or the money to get it professionally highlighted. I have really thick, long hair, so not only does it take hours at the salon to get it done, but it costs hundreds of dollars too. (It doesn't help that I live in one of the most expensive cities in the whole country, either.)

    So in the interest of protecting my pocketbook and hectic schedule, I tried to lighten my hair myself.

    My first stop was the hair color section at my local Walgreens, but all the chemicals and the fear of screwing up scared me. And what happened to SunIn? I didn't see that anywhere!

    Instead I decided to try something I hadn't done since I was a teen: use lemon juice to give myself some natural highlights. How did I do it, you ask?

    Clear lip gloss is one of those items we've all got kicking around in our purse. In fact, we've probably got a tube in EVERY purse we have, and in some cases, even more than one. It's a product we are constantly using and then losing and then re-buying it.

    The fact that we only use it for typically just one thing? Now that's just plain wasteful. You might not think it to look at that tube of gooey stuff, but there's a whole lot more you can with your gloss beside perfect your pout with it. This stuff is practically all-purpose! Here are just 15 of the other ways you can you your lip gloss. We bet some will surprise you.

    Braids continue to be an extremely hot trend this spring, and for good reason. They are cool, versatile, an easy DIY alternative to the ponytail, and a way to keep your hair off of your face when temperatures rise, yet they still look funky. Unlike severe updos, braids don't have to be flawless to work. In fact, one of the greatest styles we've seen recently is the ultra-hip messy braid.

    You don't have to be a stylist to re-create this look at home. Simply grab an elastic band, hairspray, and a curling iron and follow these 11 steps to achieve messy braid perfection!

    What if you could take a drug that would make you more beautiful -- or at least feel more beautiful? A new Dove ad teases that question with RB-X, a "beauty" patch. As part of a clinical trial, women wear the patch and keep a video diary recording their thoughts about how they feel from day to day. Will they soak up something from that patch that changes how they look?

    Well, because this is Dove, you know there's going to be a twist in there, somewhere. Remember the Dove ad that compares how women see themselves with how a stranger sees them? The twist has to do with women discovering the beauty they had all along. Can you guess what happens?

    Count on our favorite celebs to keep us guessing when it comes to their hair. One minute we're ripping out photos of Anne Hathaway and begging our stylist to give us her brunette layered locks. The next, we discover she has chopped off all of her hair and is bravely rocking a pixie 'do. Some stars have made such drastic, amazing hair changes that we can honestly say their careers have benefited from their bravery. And others (oh, Jen Aniston, what did you do?) have seriously let us down with their highly questionable beauty choices.

    Here are 10 unforgettable celebrity hair makeovers that got us talking.

    For those of you do engage in ladyscaping down there, I've just heard about the latest trend in bikini waxes. But it's not even going to make sense when I describe it, so sit down and get ready to hear the most mind-meltingly absurd personal grooming idea ever. Ready? It's called the full-bush Brazillian.

    Basically you're rocking a 70's vibe (as Gwyneth once put it) in the front, but waxing everything else bare. Your undercarriage? Zip. The front of you? Full cavewoman. For real. This is a thing women are getting done ... supposedly.
