We are living for this lively hairstyle that Nicole Richie is rocking in these images. The part down the middle makes her hair frame her face equally on both sides which is lovely. The downside to this hairstyle is that glasses will not suit this look. The bold curls give this look life and much-needed bounce. The color of her hair also helps to take this look to the next level. The two-tone color give the curls different colors which look lovely in the sunlight.

You are going to need to cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that your ends stay healthy and the color takes better to your hair. If you are going to do the color as well, you can color your hair once every 6 weeks or so to ensure that the color stays vibrant. The nice thing about the two-tone is that if you want to extend the time between colors you can because your natural color shows through your roots anyway.

When it comes to your makeup application, you want to keep it simple and not too in your face as your hair will be the star of your overall look. Turn to your more natural tones for your eyes, try not to do a heavy eyeliner application and finish off your look with a pastel lip color or a simple gloss. You are going to look stunning and will turn heads with this hairstyle!
