“This year, Adele put a relaxed spin on the classic beehive… perfectly paying homage to Bridget Bardot and other screen icons of the past,” said Nikki Purcell at Paul’s Hair World.

“To achieve Adele’s Oscar winning look we recommend bringing shape and volume to the hair with Sleep-In Rollers,” said the expert.

2)    Backcomb the roots

“After removing the rollers, take a backcomb brush and backcomb the hair at the roots for that extra lift,” she added.

3)    Create the beehive

The final step in re-creating Adele’s look is sectioning the hair into a half-up, half-down style.

“Position the beehive into place with hair grips and make sure you spray plenty of hairspray to finish,” revealed Nikki.

To get the singer’s look, fill them in with a long-lasting, matte red lipstick. We like MAC’s Matte Lipstick in Russian Red – described as an “intense bluish-red”.

Blot the lips with tissue and then re-apply twice more to ensure the colour lasts all evening.
