Layers, like Nicole Richie's here, are a perennial style favorite for a reason: They get rid of hanging weight to lighten up your 'do without removing a lot of length. They also frame your face and add movement and texture to your style. To get this look, apply a volumizer to hair from root to tip, then use a round brush to blow out your hair, section by section. Once hair is dry, take a tiny bit of texturizer on your fingers, then rub through your ends to dirty them up and add some sexy pieciness.
