How Nicole Richie achieved her new darker hair colour

Thanks to Who What here are the details of how Nicole Richie achieved her new darker locks .. Nicole Richie's new Ombré hair.

Nicole Richie's warm iteration, which was created by celeb-fave George Papanikolas of the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood.

Papanikolas first took Richie's hair several shades darker to a medium light brown, and then used balayage technique to add highlights, starting at her natural center part. Using bleach, he painted golden blonde v-shaped tips on the ends of her hair. Then, to graduate the color, he went through her hair in big horizontal sections, backcombing each one before applying bleach in an arrow shape to the ends of the hair. (The backcombing will help diffuse and soften the highlight, giving hair that sun-kissed, natural look.)
