Nicole Richie’s Golden Globes Ponytail. All Kinds Of EPIC

We said it before, and we’ll say it again—when it comes to beauty with Nicole Richie, she keeps getting better and better. (In fact, it’s been a while since we’ve seen her take a makeup & mane misstep.)

Case in point? Her ultra chic fringed bouffant + ponytail combo at the 2012 Golden Globes ceremony.

How gorgeous was the retro styling there? Jenny Cho, Suave Professionals Stylist and the mastermind behind Richie’s stellar strands, shared with us step-by-step details on how she achieved the look:

Step 1: Start by spraying a dry shampoo directly at your roots near the crown and your hairline, from ear to ear. Brush through your strands to add a bit of volume and texture.

Step 2: Pick up the same section of hair and lightly tease it at the roots to create a bit more volume. Use a boar bristle brush to smooth the hair on the sides and ends. Pin it out of your way.

Step 3: Pull the rest of your hair into a high ponytail, and secure with an elastic.

Step 4: Unpin the front and pick up one side section and wrap it around the base of the ponytail, securing with a bobby pin. Take the opposite side and wrap it around the pony in the opposite direction, and secure with a bobby pin. Finally, take the teased crown section and lightly smooth and brush it back over the entire ponytail to hide the bobby pins.

Step 5: Work a dime-size amount of shine serum into the palms of your hands, and delicately smooth over the ponytail strands to eliminate flyaways. Mist with light hold hairspray and you’re all set. —India-Jewel Jackson
