If there’s anyone on this planet who knows how to pull off a new look, it’s Nicole Richie. Ever since stepping into the public eye—and, yes, our hearts—on 2003′s The Simple Life, Richie has dyed and tried just about every fashion and beauty trend out there. After a year of experimenting with different candy-colored hues, Richie has decided to go back to blonde.
Forgoing the black under-dye and red streaks (here’s looking to you, 2004), the designer and actress gradually transitioned to a platinum blonde, stripping and rinsing out the bright colors over a few weeks. She debuted her “new” look on Instagram, and then in person at the launch of the House of Harlow pop-up shop at The Grove. Honestly, Richie can pull off any look, so it’s not surprising that she looks gorgeous as a newfound blonde.
If you’re feeling like bleaching your hair blonde, here’s how to dye it without the major damage. If you’re looking to recreate Richie’s lavender, hot pink, and navy blue locks, check out which color will work best for you, here.
