Adele showcased her signature '60s style beauty look on the Oscars red carpet at the Dolby Theatre in LA last night.

The Brit singer, whose song Skyfall won Best Original Score, looked stunning as she made her appearance at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.

The new mum, 24, donned a quirky, '60s style beehive with a half-up, half-down style.

The Skyfall singer showcased a chic centre parting with loose waves and newly highlighted blonde locks.

“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.

Want to know how to achieve Adele’s bouffant hair style at home? We reveal how to in our exclusive step-by-step, below.

1)    Wear rollers in the hair

“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.

Adele later wore her hair down and added a sultry red lip as she posed with her award in the Press Room at the Dolby Theatre.

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.
