I was listening to this girl, and ... well ... yup. To make a long story short:

Adele sings!
Adele has hair!
Adele has a ... gigantic, head-eating bun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYEDA3JcQqw).

... I'm curious how it was done.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance! :)

It's not quite the same thing (at least it doesn't look that way to me), but this tutorial might give you an idea on how to create Adele's bun:

It kind of just looks like a giant sock bun to me with a sparkly headband at the front. I think she's a great singer!

Interesting tutorial. I can see how it's related to the hairdo in the video... but still not quite perfect.
sidebar: I can't wait to try that hairdo out on my head.... without the teasing of course!

Yeah, that's kind of where she lost me, was at the teasing.

Maybe bumpits could be used?

Looks like a giant sock bun, with the edges pinned down close to the head, and a headband added to hide the "seam" between bun and head.

Love Adele and her hair! She's such a gorgeous woman with a beautiful voice. Looks like a super sized sock bun with a cute headband thing. I wonder if 2 sock holders would work? Maybe I'm not visualizing it right. I hope Torrin Paige will see this thread and try to make a tutorial for us! :D

I'm pretty sure you can use a hair rat in place of the teasing. I think the teasing was only done to give the hair some 'grip', since her hair is extremely straight and probably very slippery.

I think she's gorgeous, too. It's nice to see a girl (a ginger, even!) who isn't teensy-tiny doing music, too. There are so few.

Woah, I love her hairstyle! And her, and her voice!! She is a lovely woman. Perhaps I'm just over-tired tonight, but her voice reminds me a bit of Mama Cass. Different style- but she has a lovely similar ring.

Sorry I cannot contribute ideas about the style, but I'll be lingering because I'm interested too!!

I think it's just a pinless sock bun, like Loepsie's here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I13J7ArHTkM At least, when I did Loepsie's bun, my hair ended up looking just like Adele's. (I totally spotted the hair, too. You guys realize that we may have just a teensy tiny obsession with hair, right? :) ) Oh, that's only one sock and to achieve Adele's look, you just need one of those little string headbands.

She has a wonderful voice! I was thinking it was a huge sock bun too:cheese:

Thank you for the video...

So...for those of us who do not have 47" of hair, maybe a thick sleep sock would work? Or two tube socks rolled together? I'd like to try this, but I really stink at fully-rolled sock buns. :(

The fully-rolled ones get pretty durn big, even with measly BSL hair like mine! Link to one in my album. (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/album.php?albumid=3858&pictureid=74729) Your hair's longer than mine, I'll bet you could get a pretty giant one going.

The hair, the voice, the video, all have my creative juices flowing!! I can't wait to have longer hair to get this look going!! Thank you for sharing!

Definitely looks like a giant rolled sockbun of some type, in her case with some teasing and hairspray to get it to stay put.

For those with shorter or thinner hair that can't quite get their sockbuns as huge, here's a tip. You can get some synthetic hair called Kanekalon from Sally's, other hair stores, or online in a jumbo braid and use it to make a rat around a sock bun. It comes in all sorts of colors so you can probably find a pretty close match. Just mat it up around the sock bun and use some form of heat to seal it in place, a hair dryer would work or if you don't have one boil a pot of water and use steam.

Looks like the fully rolled sock bun to me. UltraBella has one in her album, and it swallows her head, too.

Here is a video that shows her length - it's about waist length here (see at 58 seconds)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0put0_a--Ng

I had a massive sock bun when my hair was BSL so I have no doubt that I would have one like this now with past waist length hair. It looks great on her. She reminds me of Katie Noonan - their voices are very different but the passion in the voice is amazing in both ladies.

If I had to pick one person in the world that I could switch bodies and talents with that person would be Adele. She is amazingly powerful, and graceful. /sigh envy.

Adele is like... If Mama Cass, Janis Joplin and Dusty Springfield somehow had a baby together... it would be Adele.
Also, I LOVE Katie Noonan! I have some George albums around here somewhere...

So I decided to give it a try. Here's my try at a head-eating bun...not as elegant, not as much hairspray, but still cool, I think.

It looks beautiful, Lunnafindel, and so much neater than mine. I had a heck of a time rolling mine...my arms are too short for the length of my hair. LOL.

I had never seen her hair down before, it looks pretty. I love her voice, she is amazing.

I love that song!!! :D
To me it looks like a big sock bun made with a slightly flattened "doughnut" thingy (don't know how it's called, LOL)

P.S.
Lunnafindel, that bun looks so good! I wish I could manage one that eaven and neat...

Love Adele! I think she's so beautiful and has a natural look and a natural voice. I hope she doesn't turn into a drug-addicted waif once the Hollywood/music industry people sink their teeth into her.
