Don't be intimidated by the French twist. Nicole Richie
's elegant updo can be duplicated by using a little patience, some hairspray, a rat tail comb, and a handful of bobby pins. First section out bangs and then backcomb, backcomb, backcomb the rest of the hair. Next, sweep tresses away from the face and to one side. Continuing to hold the hair with one hand, use the other hand to insert bobby pins in a vertical line from the nape of the neck to the crown. Then twist hair vertically over the bobby pins. Once the twist has been created, insert bobby pins or u-shaped hair pins horizontally to secure. Loose ends at the top of the twist can be tucked and pinned into place. Complete with a generous blast of hairspray.
