Many of us have a favorite salon and—especially if you're a celebrity—a go-to colorist. Could a pet hair braider or blowout maven be far behind? After all, Gwyneth Paltrow is opening her first blowout bar in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles soon. And then there's Assembly, the braiding service that opened today in Beverly Hills; creative director Jacqueline Bush has woven a tasteful array of styles for celebs such as Jessica Simpson and Faith Hill. (Carmen Electra seems to be getting into the spirit of things, don't you think?).

As busy as we are, we love the idea of placing our date-night look in someone else's capable hands. And with such talent at the ready, DIY-inspired looks like that of Helena Bonham Carter—well, they just don't seem all that necessary these days!
