    In my next life, I will be one of those ladies who has her hair colored, professionally, properly at a salon. But for now, I am one of those ladies who colors her own hair at home. And you know what? It's going all right. I've gotten a lot of practice and learned a lot of hard lessons. Like, hair-falling-out-in-my-hands kind of lessons. Ugly lessons. 

    We'll get to that in a minute. The good news is, if all you want is a simple, single-process color, you can do that yourself. In fact, the only reason to get a single-process color in a salon is just to save yourself the mess and trouble. But really, it's not that difficult. Here's how.

    Summer is still going strong (woohoo!), and if you're like me, you've fallen into a bit of a ponytail/messy bun rut. Granted, those are both easy ways of "doing" your hair and keeping it up off your neck and away from your face, but they do tend to get boring after a while. Adding a braid into your hairstyle can really take it from blah to super cute!

    Here are five ideas for hair with a twist, from long styles to a pretty updo that will work on short or long hair.

    Sick of shaving your legs? Well you're in luck, because hairy legs on women is in style this summer. Not since the summer of 1915 have we seen such a warm, welcome embrace of hirsute gams.

    Catherine Giudici is what I like to call a "good brunette." What I mean by that: her hair color is that perfectly rich cocoa hue that looks just right for her. It works with her skin tone, plays up her exotic features, and -- I think it's safe to say -- is one of her beauty trademarks.

    So I was scared when I heard The Bachelor winner and Sean Lowe's wife did something so drastic -- a total brunette sin, if you ask me -- and dyed her dark locks blonde. No, no, no, was my first thought. My second: oh great, another Kim Kardashian hair flop. And my third: ugh, brunette traitor!

    But I was wrong, guys. She looks stunning!

    Anyone remember that shampoo from the 1980s, Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific? It had deer musk, you see, so it made you very attractive to, um, male deer? And human males, too, I'm assuming. Anyway, ever since then we have been obsessed with deliciously-scented shampoo. Who doesn't want to flick their long mane in slow motion and have their luscious locks release an enchanting fragrance that mesmerizes everyone around her? Or is that just me?

    At any rate, there is no shortage of exquisitely-scented shampoos that cost an arm and a leg. So we went hunting for the best-smelling shampoos that cost under ten bucks -- well under ten bucks, in some cases. Here's our favorites.

    Trigger warning: If you hate rodents and love guys who have beards, you should brace yourself. Have you seen Schick New Zealand's new advertising campaign?! It's gnarly. Each image shows a hunky, hipster dude with a luscious beard. But then you look closer and realize that something is off. Those aren't your average beards. THOSE ARE BEARDS MADE OF RODENTS.

    The copy on each ad read, "The Beard Has Gone Feral." I can't even with this. Razor company! Why must you destroy something I love! I ask for so little in this life. I'm a hipster girl, and I love me some hipster boys with big ol' beards. But Schick New Zealand doesn't really want me expressing my passion for facial hair with such ardor. In fact, if they had their way? I'd only be all about the smooth and freshly shaven face on my man: Preferably courtesy of a Schick razor, of course.

    French-braiding someone else's hair isn't too hard. We all learned at slumber parties and summer camp. And then you grow up and do your daughter's hair ... if she'll let you. But French braiding your own hair? That's something else altogether. You have to reach behind your head and do everything backwards, with nothing but a mental picture in your mind of what you're actually doing. And using a mirror just makes it harder because it turns everything backwards. GAH!

    But you shouldn't have to call your BFF over to your house every time you want that hairstyle. You can do it yourself -- we promise. Here's how to French braid your own hair.
