‘When it comes to creating Adele’s looks, I like to take references from classic styling, films and iconic images then reinterpret them with my own aesthetic’, says celebrity hair and make-up artist, Michael Ashton.
‘This gives an end look that is polished and current, but also softly elegant and timeless.’ Here, he reveals how to steal her Grammy style.
Step 1. Start by thoroughly prepping the hair. Towel dry from wet, removing excess moisture before spraying through John Frieda Luxurious Volume Blow Out Spray, £6.99, on mid-lengths and ends.
Step 2. Flip the hair over with your head between your knees, blasting hot air down the hair shaft whilst finger drying – creating instant lift at your roots and thickness through the rest of your hair.
Step 3. Once the hair is almost 80 per cent dry, flip your hair back over and take large sections, smoothing them with a medium sized round brush. Pay particular attention to the ends to ensure they are bouncy and luscious.
Step 4. Next, set the hair on hot rollers to further smooth, give movement and create texture, spritzing each section with John Frieda Frizz-Ease Heat Defence, £5.89, for added protection.
Step 5. Allow the rollers to completely cool down before removing and brushing through with a natural bristle brush.
Steph 6. Twist and secure the back section of the hair into a french twist, smoothing any flyaways with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Hairspray, £5.89, and the end of a tail comb.
Step 7. Section and back brush the remaining hair, before placing and pinning away from the face to build shape.
