by Arlene Dahl

The actress and beauty columnist has written a lively guide to good looks, with diet and exercise plans for those who don’t have all day to spend at the spa, as well as advice for “the woman within.” Her style is chatty, and the book profits from the author’s access to the stars. The hair care secrets of actresses like Ann-Margret and Greer Garson are included, and Dahl’s own tips are illustrated. To highlight red hair, she suggests rinsing with three tablespoons of champagne in two cups of water. Extravagant? Dahl points out you can use leftovers or buy domestic; it will last for months in the fridge. (Simon and Schuster, $11.95)
