Adele sublime on the cover of Vogue UK for the month of November. The singer pushes her moult with a volume brushing inspired by the 60s... And inspired by a very great French actress: Catherine Deneuve.
Adele makes a smashing reappearance on the cover of Vogue UK. The singer has revealed more glamorous than ever with a dress signed by Vivienne Westwood. It asserts itself with a full-volume brushing. As the roots are lifted off and the top of the head crimped, the tips unfurl in a rippling motion. A hairstyle that brings back the 60s and its icons but also the Bombshell Supermodel brushing which is all the rage at the moment.
It was from France that Guido Palau, the hairstylist who shaped the singer's hairstyle, drew his inspiration. "I looked at Catherine Deneuve and similar women with beautiful thick, gorgeous hair - and that's what I imagined for Adele." He specifies: "She likes to be glamorous and likes make-up, moreover, she has very beautiful thick hair, so we went in that direction.".
Adele wasn't reluctant to put on an over-the-top volume. The hairdresser says: "She was really into it, so I overdid it, even more, adding volume and richness to the roots and ends".
To create this famous 60's look, the expert applied a volumizing and texturizing spray from Bumble & Bumble. He spread the product over wide sections before brushing with a large round brush and a hairdryer. To perfect this "dream hair" as he describes it, he applied velcro rollers so that the lengths take the ideal fold.
On the hair color side, Adele’s blonde is enhanced with honey tones. The colorist explains, “I mixed warm golden colors and ashy colors, and tried to lighten the ends a bit because she has thick hair. "Enough to bring dimension and contrast to her hair and get as close as possible to Catherine Deneuve's mythical blonde… Who is in fact naturally brunette! The actress bleached her hair at the age of 19 and built her legend with this shade.
