Hair Apparent: Emeli Sande's Do

Like, well, all of us in the United States, I didn't hear Emeli Sande sing during the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games. 

But today, thanks to an advert in the NYT, I'm definitely seeing her hair.

With its shaved sides and high pouf, Emeli's do is a throwback to jazzy glamour as well as New Wave waves.

It reminds me of

Etta James:

Annabella from Bow Wow Wow:

Allanah from The Thompson Twins:

and not really but maybe, opera singer Ana Durlovski, whose energy in this image I love:

She's a medical student from Glasgow, Scotland, as an old fusty, that was the first time I had heard her sing, though I had read numerous articles on her, she has a lovely voice but I still hope she follows her vocation.

Really? I had no idea and join you in hoping that the entertainment industry doesn't reroute her permanently. Am going to research her voice via YouTube.

Oh my God, I looooove her look. It appeals to the '80s chick in me. Aways adored Annabella and Allanah!

I hadn't heard of Emeli Sande, will have to look her up. I certainly like her hair; she manages to make it look pretty! I have the same cut and white blond color.
