Want to look like Jennifer Lopez?

The Look Book: 50 Iconic Beauties and How to Achieve Their Signature StylesTeens are continually drawn to magazines, entertainment shows, and movies that feature Hollywood stars on the red carpet and they continually try to emulate their hair and make-up. Now teens can get the inside scoop on achieving those looks in The Look Book: 50 Iconic Beauties and How to Achieve Their Signature Styles.

Author Erika Stalder has said, "No one inspires us to maximize our own beauty more than celebrities, so I wanted to compile the most stunning and enduring trends in beauty history in The Look Book." And Stalder has done just that in what can be considered an illustrated hair and makeup how-to that features celebs such as Farrah Fawcett, Naomi Campbell, and Uma Thurman.

For each celeb, you can read their bio, a famous quote then learn how to get their look. You'll find out who the look works best on, tools needed, time it takes and how to do it. You'll also find professional tips from celebrity make-up artist Cameron Cohen and celebrity hair stylist Christopher Fulton.

What I love about this book is that it's almost a history of iconic looks that range from Farrah Fawcett's hair to Kate Winslet's no-makeup makeup. It shows how celebrity looks affect our society and set off trends that girls of all ages attempt to emulate.
