Get Adele’s sexy retro do

Singer Adele's look was pure Hollywood glamour on the red carpet as she became the first songwriter to take home an Oscar for a Bond movie song. Stylist Michael Ashton created her voluminous, half-up do, one that is sure to become a trendsetting look.
 
Here is how to get her look from Michael Ashton:
Towel dry wet hair, removing excess moisture before working through the NEW Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray on mid-lengths and ends. 
 
Flip hair over with your head between your knees, blasting hot air down the hair shaft for instant lift at the roots and thickness through the rest of the hair.

When hair is about 80 percent 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.

Section the hair into quarters and apply a medium-large curling iron to each section to achieve a contemporary and feminine texture. Next set in hot rollers. Once cool, carefully brush through hair with a natural bristle brush.

Continue for the remaining three sections, ensuring that as you have finished curling each section you pin it in a barrel curl using a sectioning clip while it cools and sets.

After five to 10 minutes, remove the sectioning clips, gently tousle hair. Pull half of the hair back and tease at the crown, securing pieces together in the back of the head.  Leave down two small sections of hair to frame the face. Mist Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray for a long-lasting finish.
