Since her split from husband Simon Konecki, there have been rumors that Adele is working on her return to the stage. First came her incredible weight loss transformation, and now a viral photo points to another dramatic change for Adele: a shaved head.
Last week, Adele’s makeup artist Michael Ashton shared a picture of the star doing her makeup while seemingly on FaceTime with him. “BTW… exciting news coming soon!! Get ready to get on board,” he wrote alongside the shot.
A couple days later, a photo of Adele with a blonde buzz cut showed up on Instagram, leaving many fans to speculate that the singer made the dramatic cut ahead of her comeback. “Love the new look,” one fan commented. It’s a look similar to one the late Delores O’Riordan, a musician Adele admired, often rocked.
However, a quick scroll through Hey Reilly’s Instagram account, where the image was first posted, makes us believe otherwise. The digital designer is known for editing images of famous folks, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Kardashians, and the Obamas, turning them into artistic pop culture posts.
A few posts down the feed, there’s even an edited pic of Markle with a shaved head. This is most likely the case with the viral photo of Adele, too. Some followers were quick to point out that the singer’s face appears to be Photoshopped onto Kristen Stewart.
Still, we love a good comeback haircut, and Adele looks amazing with a shaved head. While it’s unlikely she has buzzed off her shoulder-length locks, we can’t wait to see her return to the music scene. It has been rumored that the Grammy winner will soon be releasing her first album since her 2015 EP ’25.’ Multiple reports claim she was recently heard saying a new album was coming in September.
