This week's best beauty reading.

Since it's wedding season and all, I'm very happy to see this tutorial from Andrea Claire on how to create a simple updo with just eight bobby pins (!!). Now repeat after me: stiff, formal, "prom" hair bad. Loose, low updos good. [Beauty & The Blog]

I may not be a fan of hair extensions (remember our friend Brandi?) but lash extensions? Hells to the yes. I am mesmerized by this pair—the work of Beverly Hills-based lash guru to the stars Daniel Dinh. [Nadine Jolie]

Even though, after 5+ years in this business, I have enough of a product stash to open my own Sephora, I'm always fascinated by kitchen beauty treatments. Jessica has a great (and inexpensive) idea for at-home exfoliation. [Beauty Woo Me]

I've been testing this new frizz-fighting product from Avon for a magazine story that will be out this fall. I'll share more about it soon, but in the meantime, read about how amazing it is here (yes, even for fine-haired gals like me). [15 Minute Beauty Fanatic]

I first heard of Mixed Chicks, a hair range for naturally curly hair, via Afiya from The Style House. Though I won't be reviewing it anytime soon (my hair is as far from curly as it gets), you can check out this review of the cult line here. [Beauty Crazed]
