This is worst nightmare material.
Nicole Richie has shared a video of the moment she accidentally set her hair on fire.
While celebrating her 40th birthday, she leaned over her birthday cake to blow out the candles.
The ends of her hair touched off the flames and the fire quickly grew.
In the video, one of Nicole’s friends to her left reached across to pat out the fire on one side.
That’s when she realised what was happening.
Nicole hasn’t said if she was badly hurt but she joked about it on Instagram saying, ‘Well… so far 40 is 🔥.’
Can you imagine a worse way to celebrate your birthday?
