The Story Behind Adele's 'Platinum' Locks

Posted on

In addition to an astounding
six
Grammy awards, there is another golden addition to Adele‘s life: that gorgeous blonde do!

The singer’s lighter look (she used to rock a deep reddish hue) is the handiwork of colorist Lucy Holbrook at the Daniel Galvin salon in London.

“We decided to color Adele’s hair a honey-colored blonde as it suited her complexion and really brought out the color of her eyes,” she explains. “It was important to elect a color with plenty of depth to complement the bouncy voluminous styles that she favors.”

Lino Carbosiero, the salon’s creative director, was responsible for those Veronica Lake waves. “We made Adele’s hair shoulder-length and cut a long layer through the back so as to give her a bit of swing and some natural movement,” he explains. “We wanted to create an old classic with a modern twist.” Tell us: What do you think of the look?
