Hair
Just when you thought you had the side-fishtail braid mastered comes the 5-strand side braid. Lucky for us, Fashionista rounded up The 10 Best YouTube Hair Tutorials so we can follow along and let someone who knows what they are doing give me expert styling tips.

Nails
Don’t get us wrong, we love a good Ryan Gosling movie (or meme for that matter) but would you want his face on your fingernails? We’re on the fence, but the crew at Refinery29 has us tempted:

What do you get when you mix nail art and tabloid hotties? One of the most distracting (in a good way) manicures we’ve ever seen: Rad Nails just debuted Hot Man-icure, a “steamy nail set” featuring illustrated versions of our favorite pretty boys, from Ryan Gosling to Robert Pattinson.

Face

It’s the first day of June and the weather is only going to get hotter from here on out. So, you’re definitely going to need some eye makeup that won’t turn into a smeary mess when you’re at an outdoor wedding, a rooftop party or even just lounging by the pool. We still want to look cute even if it’s sweltering outside, right?
