Nicole’s Best Tweets: Week #1 of 4

Each Wednesday I will be bringing to you a series of some of Nicole’s best tweets to celebrate her upcoming TV show, #CandidlyNicole, which is based on her humour – especially on Twitter! This will continue for the next 3 weeks until the show airs on July 17th on VH1 in America. Enjoy!

Nicole Lets Harlow Dye Her Hair Blue

Nicole spoke to PEOPLE who complied the following article on the Style Watch section on their website.

When we first saw Nicole Richie‘s purple hair, we assumed the star made the big dye decision all on her own. (She happens to be one of Hollywood’s biggest trendsetters.) But, she says, it was actually her 6-year-old daughter Harlow Madden who pushed her to go for the pastel hue.

“[Husband Joel Madden] has been coloring his hair for as long as she can remember so that is something that is normal to her,” Richie told PEOPLE. “She asked me, ‘Why don’t you ever dye your hair?’ — and so we did it.”

And Richie even let Harlow experiment with some washout hair color of her own. “She just dyed hers blue yesterday. It will only last a week, but even she’s having fun with it.”

Richie, 32, also opened up about her bold style choices, explaining that she dresses for the moment, even if she knows she’s going to look back at some of her outfits and cringe.

“There’s no way you’re not going to look at yourself 10 years ago at any point and say, ‘Everything I did was just great and there’s nothing embarrassing,’” she shared. “You’re going to get embarrassed, so it’s really about experimenting and having fun and knowing that embarrassment is coming no matter what.”

And while she always manages to have fun, the star is also very busy between her mommy duties, filming Candidly Nicole and running her own clothing line. In Las Vegas on Tuesday for the Licensing Expo, the House of Harlow 1960 founder and designer spoke of finding her balance between being a clothing designer and being a mother to two children.

“Family definitely plays a role in how much I take on,” she said. “This is exciting, but you have to have fun while you do it as well. You don’t want to spread yourself too thin. Why be in this business if you’re not going to really enjoy it? I take on what I can and that’s just what it is.”


“One Last Thing” with PEOPLE

Nicole recently spoke to PEOPLE online about “one last thing.”

Last person I kissed
[My husband] Joel and my kids Harlow, 6, and Sparrow, 4. It was in a big Madden family group hug this morning.

Last obsession
Turtles! We got two for Sparrow’s birthday. He loves Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and that turned into a love of real turtles. But now he has moved on, and I am stuck with them. I even joined a turtle forum and read about other people’s turtle drama. My turtles are surprisingly fast.

Last show I watched
I just started watching 24. I know I’m a little behind. I like to stay about eight years behind any TV show so I know what to expect. I am binge-watching it, and now every day I feel like people are out to get me.

Last time I watched the sunrise
I am up before the sun every morning. I like a good hour by myself while everyone is still sleeping. I go out in the garden, relax and have some hot water with lemon. Just take some quiet time before I start my day.

CTV News adds the following quotes:

“I just started growing our own garden. I’m home a lot and we’re growing our own fruits and vegetables. There’s so many things in food right now and it’s important for people to know and be educated on whatever they’re putting into their body.”

“I love wearing my little vintage peasant dresses, but I garden in the morning and I’m really cold in the morning. I end up with a North Face (jacket), my husband’s baseball cap, colourful sweatpants that I slept in the night before, and leopard slippers.”

Nicole Richie‘s new VH1 series, #CandidlyNicole, will debut on July 17th, but to get fans ready for the hilarious new show, we want to get the word out that everyone should probably be following Nicole on Twitter and Instagram. The new show will be based on her AOL web series of the same name, and is loosely based on her hilarious social media commentary. From the show’s press release:

“Nicole will take audiences on a fun and intimate ride through her own amusing point of view based on her outlandish reflections on social media (where she has more than four million followers). The show will detail her daily adventures and give insight into her decisions on style, relationships, her work life and her journey to adulthood. Whether it’s having a discussion with her dad about who his favorite daughter is on Father’s Day, meeting with a doctor about having her tramp stamp removed or helping her best friend find a date, Nicole has no problem offering her uncensored opinion to everyone she meets (even if they didn’t ask for it).”

If you haven’t checked out her profiles, don’t worry. We picked some of our all-time favorite posts to prove to you just why you need to follow her this second. From her musings on her dog’s digestion, to group selfies with her famous girlfriends to hilarious throwbacks of her dad, Lionel Richie, whom she refers to as L-Train, it’s basically as close to perfection as you can imagine. Take a look.

New York Times: Nicole Richie’s Beauty Routine

Nicole Richie discusses her beauty routine with the New York Times. She covers skin care, make-up, fragrance, hair, beauty services, fitness and diet.


I recently colored my hair. It’s a lavender-slash-silver. My daughter asked me to do it, so I did. This change of color and all the maintenance is something new to me. Last July, I wanted to give my hair a break. I took all my extensions out for the first time in 10 years and for seven months I was rocking only leave-in conditioner and a slick back. I was giving my hair a chance to breathe because I do a lot to it. I color it and I do a Brazilian treatment. So I went from nothing to this color. It was a big jump.

With colored hair there are a lot of rules I’m learning. I just switched to this new natural shampoo by Davines, and I use a color conditioner that my hair colorist, Danny Moon, who works at Andy Lecompte salon, makes for me. He mixes up a combination of conditioner and color so that it deposits a little color each time.

Andy cuts my hair, and has since I was 19. He’s, coincidentally, one of my best friends. We’re around the same age and started out, in a way, at the same time. Because I’m his friend, he can experiment with me. Every major haircut I’ve had is one that he’s done. My attitude with beauty and hair is that it’s temporary: you can always change it. It’s how I feel about fashion as a whole. It’s fun to see Andy and experiment and do it for over 10 years. Danny is also great and crazy-looking; his hair is like a clown’s with so many colors. Danny colors Joel’s hair, too. He also gave my son a mohawk and gives my daughter hair chalk to play with.
