If you were feeling Nicole Richie's topknot on Fashion Star last week, our friends at Who What Wear Beauty have whipped up a nifty how-to. To get the look, hair stylist Charley Brown (best name ever) prepped Richie's wet hair with Umberto Beverly Hills' Roman Oil Serum before blow-drying, then brushed dry hair up into a high ponytail. Next, he twisted loose hair into a knot and secured with bobby pins, finishing off with a spritz of Sebastian's Shaper Fierce Hairspray to prevent fly-aways. [WWWBeauty; Previously]
