English born, Scottish recording artist and songwriter Emeli Sande's hair is often a topic of conversation.
Not only does she rock bold iconic tresses, she's a global trend setter in the celebrity hair arena.
Known for her previous platinum blonde Mohawk, pompadours and undercut hairstyles, Emeli's short sassy hairstyles never disappoint.
The Journey To Shaved Off Platinum Blonde Hair
An unusual hair experience took Emeli (Adele Emily Gouraguine) to her signature platinum blonde style. After moving to London, the English born singer (of Zambian descent) was in the mood for a new and more liberating lifestyle.
The Heaven singer entrusted her formerly "really big" hair to a London based short tressed blonde hairstylist which ultimately she decided to shave off.
Emeli told Glamour she would always tell her London stylists "oh, just take a little bit off the sides."
It used to be really big (in a Fro), and I'd be like "a little bit more, a bit more, a bit more," and finally she was like, "should I just shave it?!" and I was like "yeah!" And that's how it (my hairstyle) came to work."
Emeli's Hair Will Continue To Evolve
It was a liberating moment. From her shaved head, her hair grew into a series of very interesting super short hairstyles along the lines of Pink and Miley Cyrus, who both have transitioned through a range of similar platinum blonde chops.
Emlie seems to take the same attitude with her platinum blonde short crop hairstyles as we does with her music career. She has famously stated "These days nothing lasts, music is like fast food, you're in then you're out."
Fashion Rocks Magazine for September 2014 reported that after hair and makeup pro Yasmina Bentaieb's blow-dryer zonked out right before a Chicago performance, she styled Sande's hair "under a hair drier in the bathroom - and it turned out great."
Honesty & Raw Emotion In Songs & Hair
Although the singer who possesses a soprano vocal range has been performing in many noteworthy venues, since the beginning of 2013, she's been working on her second studio album, slated to be released in 2015.
Sandé said the key to a good song when she writes is using "honesty" and "raw emotion".
It's no wonder the formerly fro haired performer whose dad cut her hair into triangular shapes when she was young, has shed her big strands for a more honest and raw style.
