This Trending Disney Cookbook Reveals 50 of The Parks' Secret Recipes

  This Trending Disney Cookbook Reveals 50 of The Parks' Secret Recipes Nothing makes you feel like a kid again quite as much as going to Disneyland or Disneyworld for the day and eating all of your meals there. When you’re at the parks, it seems totally reasonable to have a giant smoked turkey leg for breakfast, a Dole Whip for lunch, and a Mickey soft pretzel for dinner. But living life like a kid again doesn’t have to stay at the parks. That’s because there’s a new Disney-inspired recipes cookbook out that’s trending on Amazon, and it reveals 50 “secret recipes” from the Disney parks that you can now make at home.

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect — and this is a phrase that definitely applies to twist-outs.

While some are able to master the style right off the bat, it can take others a little longer to get there. But no matter your skill level, many of us have experienced a so-called "twist-out fail."

Sometimes it's a matter of unraveling your twists before they're completely dry, other times it's because you didn't use the right products. Either way, it sucks. But just because your look didn't go as planned, doesn't mean you need to throw your hair in a head wrap and call it a day (unless you actually want to, of course). There are a plethora of updo options for you, and if all else fails, you can always just pick your hair out and rock an afro.

Wolfgang Puck opens up about abusive father and mental health in new documentary: 'Finding a mentor is really the most important thing'

  Wolfgang Puck opens up about abusive father and mental health in new documentary: 'Finding a mentor is really the most important thing' When your flagship restaurant Spago opened in West Hollywood in 1983, it quickly became a celebrity hangout. It started at Ma Maison before I even opened Spago. I got to know Orson Welles and Billy Wilder really well. When I opened Spago, I called Billy Wilder up and I said, "Billy, I have my new restaurant open. You have to come." He said, "OK, I’ll come. Put me down on Friday night for eight or 10 people." He showed up with Gregory Peck and Sidney Poitier and Joan Collins. All of a sudden, they were sitting in the middle of the restaurant, and everybody said, "Oh my God, Spago is THE restaurant.

Twisted Pompadour

Let none other than the gorgeous Janelle Monae be your style inspiration for this look, but keep in mind that the length of your hair will dictate your styling options. If you have a tapered cut like Monae, feel free to pick out the top of your hair and let it flow freely. However, if you have some more length around the sides and back of your head then you'll want to follow Stevens' styling tips.

"Section off some hair at the top of your head for bangs," she shares. "Then spray the remaining loose hair with Cantu Avocado Hydrating Curling Cream. From there, create one loose flat twist along the nape of your neck from right to left, securing the twist with bobby pins. Twist the sectioned off bangs and join with the first flat twist."

How "Gossip Girl" Inspired an Entire Generation of Fashion Lovers

  How "To this day, there's an entire cottage industry on resale sites dedicated to digging up Marc by Marc Jacobs pieces worn by Blair and selling them at a premium."Set to release this July on HBO, the new series stars the likes of Canadian actress Jordan Alexander and It-boy Evan Mock wearing updated versions of the classic Gossip Girl school uniforms that some would say not only defined, but set an entirely new expectation for fashion on TV in the mid-Aughts.

When you're done, feel free to lay down your edges using your go-to edge control, or let them stay textured if that's more your jam.

Bantu Knots

Bantu knots are a quick and easy way to create a structural updo with minimal effort — and you can even keep the same parts you used to create your twists to speed things up. Simply re-do your two-strand twists, or twist the entire section of hair around your finger, then wrap it around the base of the hair. Secure with either a bobby pin or hair elastic.

If you're looking for a smooth finish, simply spritz the hair with some water and apply a gel or pomade to the hair before you start twisting.

Crown braids are nothing if not regal, but that doesn't mean they're complicated to craft. Even comedian Quinta B did hers herself.

A restaurant owner says raising wages to $15 would solve her labor shortage - but she'd have to hike menu prices. Instead, she's turning to automated drive-thrus.

Shana Gonzales, a Checkers franchisee, said she was struggling to attract staff. Rather than boost wages, she's turning to automation.Shana Gonzales, a Checkers franchisee who owns four restaurants in the Atlanta area, told The New York Times that she wanted to hire more workers, but that it wouldn't be profitable. She said raising wages to $14 or $15 would allow her to fully staff her restaurants - but that she'd have to raise menu prices, which could deter customers.

"First, moisturize your scalp with Cantu Tea Tree & Jojoba Hair & Scalp Oil, follow up by parting your hair into classic pigtails," says Stevens. "Then, create two french braids. Join and pin them with bobby pins."

Seriously, it's as simple as that.

Once your hair is out of twists, start off by smoothing out the sides using your favorite gel. We love Eco Styler's Olive Oil Styling Gel. "Then grab two medium sized naturally-colored hair clips and brushing up each side, place the clips upward for a simple and refined look," says Stevens.

If you want to add a little extra oomph to the look, add in a cute hairband like Tamera Mowry.

Curly Bun

"First, apply Cantu Leave-In Conditioning Cream," Stevens suggests, in order to add softness and shine. Next, brush your hair upwards and secure with a hair tie.

"If you have thicker hair and want to achieve a sleek low ponytail or high bun, create the ponytail with half the head of hair, then slick up the remaining hair around the previously made ponytail," the hairstylist advises. "This maximizes hair control."
