All the cool girls are embracing the shag cut this season, so perhaps we should have guessed that Adele would do her own iteration—an elegant and understated version, natch. Sure enough, the "Hello" singer took to the stage of the UK's The X Factor last night with a shorter, choppier 'do.
Hello, it's… well, perfect. Not only is the jaw-grazing length on point, but it's also the perfect example for anyone not quite ready to take the leap to full shag, as the longer layers are incredibly flattering without being quite so punk rock.
An inspiration as always, Adele.
If you have choppy layers of your own, keep hair from looking limp with the help of Drybar's Triple Sec 3-in-1 ($26), which acts as a dry shampoo, texturizer, and volumizer all at once. And tell us: What do you think of Adele's new chop? Sound off in the comments below!
