Luis Payne, a Senior Stylist at the amazing Hollywood salon, Hairroin, represented at the and touched up Adam Lambert’s hair at the event.
I only watched bits and pieces of American Idol this year, but that’s more than I’ve ever watched before. I’ve never been a big fan of the show, but I liked Adam Lambert. He was so different than the other contestants–everyone else on those shows is so safe and boooring. I would much rather have someone over the top and performancey. Scream your head off and wear a full face of makeup. Much better than strumming politely like a second rate John Mayer.
Anyway, Luis wrote about it all on Hairroin Salon’s blog:
I’d have to say the highlight of the evening is when Adam Lambert came to our haircare lounge backstage. The last time I styled his hair was for the Zodiac Show ’08. Hairroin Salon has been styling hair for this eclectic show for the last several years. After greeting Adam, he quickly sat down for a hair touch up. Adam couldn’t believe we were there and was stoked by our presence. He said it was nice to see familiar faces. I used Sebastian Microweb Fiber in his hair and finished with Re-Shaper.
For you Lambert fans who are looking to get a pompadour of your own, Hollywood Life has the lowdown on how to recreate his infamous ‘do:
Step 1: Emulsify a couple pumps of Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber onto your finger tips.
Step 2: Starting at the ends of the hair, work the elastic texturizer throughout the hair and into the roots.
Step 3: Push hair into desired shape and create separation where needed.
Step 4: To finish the look, spray hair with Sebastian Professional Re-Shaper hairspray for humidity-resistant, strong hold.
