In a bid to lure young female customers, J.C. Penney Co. said it would open Sephora stores within its department stores starting this fall, under an agreement with the high-end cosmetics retailer. Sephora will open "store-within-stores" and be the exclusive seller of beauty products at J.C. Penney, which has been trying to erase its image as a dowdy middle-market department store operator with younger, more modern merchandise and marketing.

Are there multiple shampoos in your shower caddy? Old face creams gathering dust in your cabinet? Have you been accused of having a bathroom that looks like a Sephora store? Most important, does any of this make you a "cosmoholic"? Yes, there is such a thing as "too much," and it's a fine line between the mildly messy makeup lover and someone psychologically addicted to beauty products. Organizing pro Linda Koopersmith, author of "The Beverly Hills Organizer's Home Organizing Bible: A Pro's Answers to Your Organizing Prayers," has tackled bathroom and cosmetic organizing projects for more than 20 years and run into some serious hoarders.

As writer Alene Dawson pointed out in an article for the Los Angeles Times earlier this year, it can be "downright scary.

The blow-and-go salon chain Drybar is launching a line of hair-care products and tools in March to help customers maintain their blowouts. The line includes basics such as shampoo, conditioner and blow dryers along with styling extras such as smoothing oil and pomade. Echoing the chain's bar theme, many of the products are packaged to resemble bottles of liquor. The Los Angeles chain has been styling the locks of harried working women and busy moms since 2010. It's one of a growing number of blow-dry-only salons that specialize in washing, drying and styling hair for about $35 a pop. Founder Alli Webb said the Drybar line has been a two-year undertaking to design products dedicated to maintaining perfectly coiffed hair for days.

For Jodi Guber, yoga has always been more of a lifestyle than a mere fitness endeavor. Which is why the designer and certified yoga instructor recently retooled and renamed her yoga-inspired clothing line, Beyond Yoga, to reflect what it's gradually evolved into ? a comfort-based lifestyle brand with an athletic component.

Much has been made in fashion recently about how, as we approach the millennium, we're turning back to the familiar luscious cashmeres, warm wools and comfy cottons. We're also turning to more natural, less heady fragrances and scents. At least that's the theory of Arcona Devon, one of Southern California's pioneers in holistic beauty treatments.
