Along with Blake Lively and her always perfectly styled locks, Nicole Richie has long been one of our hair idols. Whether her tresses are dyed pink, purple or, most recently, a soft shade of blonde, the reality show star and fashion mogul is no stranger to a successful salon visit. But it looks like she’s not the only Richie to be rocking an envy-inducing mane — and no, we’re not talking about her famous pops. We’re referring to Nicole’s little sis, Sofia.
The 16-year-old has been making headlines because of her new modeling gig (she just landed a campaign with Madonna’s label, Material Girl), but after a little bit of snooping on her Instagram we discovered that she’s also a bit of a budding beauty queen. Scroll on down to check out some of her best looks we’ve spotted so far.
1. Braid + High Pony: While shooting for ASOS, Sofia sported a sassy high pony with a headband made of braided hair. If you’re into Ariana Grande’s signature look but want to add a little something extra, this should definitely be your go-to style.
2. Braided Center Part: Forget about the half-up top knot. Instead, try this half up/half down French braid that runs straight down the middle of her part. Think of it as a more exaggerated version of Kate Bosworth’s Coachella hairstyle.
3. Waterfall Braids: Section off a chunk in the back and the front and French braid five tiny braids for a cool, unexpected look that’s super noticeable on one side, but nearly invisible on the other.
4. Braided Madness: Okay, so we don’t really know how to tell you how to copy this one, but it’s safe to say we’re totally mesmerized.
