“Fashion Star” Mentor + Hair Goddess Nicole Richie in Glamour June 2012 Issue

It's no secret that Nicole Richie of NBC's "Fashion Star" has inspired THIS girl on more than one occasion when it comes to hair, fashion and style! In late 2006 she convinced me to dye my dark, thick wavy locks blond and cut into a bob (favorite hairstyle ever!); after many a year of dreaming of having sleek frizz-free hair, she inspired me to try the keratin treatment, which I'm absolutely in love with (I've done it twice now). And her style? Don't get me started! She just launched her third fashion line- the Nicole Richie Collection on QVC. I'm waiting for her to one day come out with a home decor line. Wouldn't that be fab?! If you're as big a fan of Nicole as I am, you won't want to miss the June issue of Glamour with one of my other favs- Carrie Underwood on the cover, available on newsstands and digitally (iPad, Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Color) nationwide May 8th.

Here's what the fashion designer, reality star, wife and mother had to say to Glamour: 

 

On hair: "I have naturally curly hair, so “natural” beach
waves are not so natural for me. I like to braid my hair at night
and then let it out the next day. And I also curl my hair with a
flatiron. I actually think I’m the best hairstylist on the planet."

 

On her rap career: "It is! Just wait and see. I’m the best! Actually, I cannot
rhyme cat without going to rhymezone.com. I’m so bad at it!"

On her body: "I feel [gets all fake dramatic]…great about my body.
[Laughs.] You know, aesthetically I can be picky, but I choose
not to. I’ve taken huge leaps. I’m proud of that. I work out, and I
get lots of sleep, and so I feel great. And that is most important."

 

On being a trendsetter: "My world is small. I have my circle of 10
friends, my kids, my family. None of them call me a trendsetter."

On women starting their own business: "Study your craft. Know it well before you jump in. I wait all
the time. Because I don’t want to just put my name on something
and then release it. What’s the point of that?"

 

On her favorite moment in every day: "When I wake up at 5:30 A.M. and it’s still dark out. I love,
love being alone. It helps me to be a better mom to my kids
and a better person at work."
