How to cheat your way to a stylish bun like Adele”s

With her spine-tinglingly powerful voice and six Grammy nominations, Adele is the singer of the moment. But it turns out she is also a hair icon.

It seems her trademark bun has become so popular that hairdressers have been inundated with requests for the look in the run-up to the party season.

Others are opting for a DIY option — logging on to online tutorials showing you how to recreate the look. And with party season in full swing, it’s the perfect opportunity to try out a new style.

But for those of us too butter-fingered to get to grips with bobby pins — and too hard up after getting all those Christmas presents to shell out for professional help — there is a solution in the form of the ‘faux bun’, as seen on the model pictured below.

Created by Adele’s very own hairdresser Lino Carbosiero, the handy hairpiece comes in nine shades. Made from a material called Flexihair, which looks realistic and is easy to wear, all you need to do is tie your hair back and then place the bun over your ponytail.

There is a small comb to hold it in place and a drawstring cord which you pull tight around the base of the bun to secure it.

The same bun can be worn for a sleek Sixties look or a tousled contemporary feel: just pull a few strands loose to make it appear more casual.

Carbosiero works at Daniel Galvin and has been cutting the tresses of the rich and the famous for 30 years.

His clients include Kelly Osborne, Anna Friel, Samantha Cameron and Hillary Clinton, so he knows the value of a sleek, stylish look for busy women.

As well as the bun, Carbosiero has designed a plait (60), a high ponytail (45) and a sleek ponytail (49).

A fake bun could mean you never again have a bad hair day — and, at 36, it’s much cheaper than a string of emergency blow-dries.

Cinders shall go to the ball!
