Yophiy, normally translated as 'beauty', usually describes the beauty of a person or branches of trees:
How beautiful you are, my darling, how beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth.
This type of beauty is taken away as a sign of judgment:
Now it will come about that
instead of sweet perfume there will be putrefaction;
instead of a belt, a rope;
instead of well-set hair, a plucked-out scalp;
instead of fine clothes, a donning of sackcloth;
and branding instead of beauty.
Though this type of beauty is clearly a good gift from God, it is misused by Israel and corrupts the heart:
"Then your fame went forth among the nations on account of your beauty, for it was perfect because of My splendour which I bestowed on you," declares the Lord GOD.
"But you trusted in your beauty and played the harlot because of your fame, and you poured out your harlotries on every passer-by who might be willing."

You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendour.
I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings,
That they may see you.
Tsebiy, normally translated as 'beauty', 'glory' or 'honour', is a type of beauty that is clearly a good thing (God is even described as becoming a beautiful crown), but which is defiled in judgment:
The proud crown of the drunkards of Ephraim is trodden under foot. And the fading flower of its glorious beauty, which is at the head of the fertile valley, will be like the first-ripe fig prior to summer, which one sees, and as soon as it is in the hand, he swallows it. In that day the LORD of hosts will become a beautiful crown and a glorious diadem to the remnant of His people;

No’am, meaning 'pleasantness', is the beauty, kindness and favour of the Lord which leads to peace and rest.

That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD
And to meditate in His temple.
And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us;
yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
In the NIV and NASB, the word No'am here is translated as 'favour'.
No'am can also be taken away in judgment:
And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.
Once again, both the NIV and NASB translate No'am here as 'favour'. The staff of beauty/favour signifies the covenant with God’s people.
