Nicole Scherzinger: I style myself
Nicole Scherzinger learnt all about "hair and make-up" by styling herself while with The Pussycat Dolls.
The singer discovered most of her top beauty tips and tricks from touring with her old bandmates.
The girls all had to manage their own stage looks and went all out to try and create a sexy, smouldering appearance.
"I learned about hair and make-up [from touring with PCD]. We did our own," she told the January issue of UK magazine Glamour.
"We really pulled out that sexy, cabaret side."
However, the star is really more a fan of natural beauty.
Nicole enjoys embracing her own style now that she has gone solo.
"I'm naturally a more boho-rock, surfer kind of girl," she said. "Now that I'm coming into my own, I get to do more with my style."
The brunette beauty also revealed the secrets to her gorgeous tresses.
The X Factor judge believes that washing your hair too much can strip it of the natural oils that protect your hair.
"The secret is not to wash your hair too much - I do it only twice a week. Your natural oils protect it more than anything else," she explained.
"Typically, I let my hair air-dry. If I want a beachy look, I add salt spray or just scrunch it up in a bun."
