Intro­duce your­self!
My name is Car­ole Adele “Supre­me” Williams AKA Adele Supre­me. I was born and raised in South Cen­tral LA. I am an artist, nat­u­ral hair styl­ist, mod­el, cre­ative direc­tor and wardrobe styl­ist.

Why did you make the deci­sion to go nat­u­ral?
I’ve been nat­u­ral my whole life. I used to beg my moth­er for a relax­er, but she always turned me down. I didn’t fall in love with my tress­es until I reached high school.

How would you describe your tex­ture?
My hair is pre­dom­i­nant­ly 4c. The curl pat­tern is a lot looser in the front, but coarse nonethe­less. It’s extreme­ly thick and dense. I’ve cut my hair 4 times with­in the past 4 years in an attempt to keep main­te­nance low. 

Describe your styling reg­i­men over the course of the mon­th.
I’m pret­ty lazy with my hair. Part of that is because I spend an abun­dant amount of time deal­ing with every­one else’s! And because I’m a pret­ty low main­te­nance chick. I plait my hair once every few days. I’ll use Shea Mois­ture Frizz-Free Curl Mousse and Alikay Nat­u­rals Mois­ture Rich Hair Par­fait. I’ll either wear it out or pull it up. I spray it with The Roots Naturelle Braid & Con­di­tion­er spray dai­ly. I comb my hair about once to twice a mon­th (hon­est­ly). When my hair is combed, it expands to three times its size, which looks nice but gets in the way. 


What does wash day look like for you?
Well, when it’s time for me to sham­poo my hair, I’ll usu­al­ly have some­one else do it for me because it’s so thick and dense. I have a dif­fi­cult time get­ting my scalp thor­ough­ly cleaned. But when that day arrives, I use Gabel’s Lemon Fluff Sham­poo first. It’s a throw­back clar­i­fy­ing sham­poo that’s been around for a pret­ty long time. I fol­low up with Paul Mitchell Col­or Pro­tect Dai­ly Sham­poo as well as Shea Mois­ture Mois­ture Reten­tion Sham­poo. For a deep con­di­tion I use the Shea Mois­ture Deep Treat­ment Masque and I’ll some­times add a lit­tle coconut oil to my con­di­tion­er for extra lubri­ca­tion.

Describe your favorite go-to hair­style for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
I’ll give myself a large flat twist going up into a top knot. It’s sim­ple, quick and adorable. 

How do you com­bat shrink­age?
I blow out my hair once a mon­th and I refrain from using an abun­dant amount of water based prod­ucts. Water based prod­ucts are essen­tial for mois­ture, which is why I use The Roots Naturelle Braid & Con­di­tion­er spray dai­ly, how­ev­er I don’t over sat­u­rate my strands with hair milks/creams.

Tell us about your hair col­or?
I bleached and col­ored the blonde patch in my hair using the Wella Pro­fes­sion­als sys­tem. A few months after that I col­ored it hot pink and then cov­ered that up with an amber col­ored semi per­ma­nent from the Adore line. It hasn’t changed my tex­ture. I just love the groovy mix­ture of col­ors going on right there. Looks like a Big Stick Pop­si­cle when you part it. 

What are some of your prob­lem areas (if any) that require spe­cial care and atten­tion?
My blonde patch isn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly a “prob­lem” but it does require the most atten­tion because it was bleached. I’m always sure to sat­u­rate that patch with plen­ty of mois­tur­iz­er to pre­vent break­age.

What are 2 do’s for your tex­ture?
Do mois­tur­ize

What are 2 don’ts for your tex­ture?
Don’t sham­poo hair with­out detan­gling first 

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?

WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTT is going on? the­se ladies in the last few style icons have been KNOCKING IT THE HELL OUT OF THE PARK!!! Gor­geous and I’m full of all kind of hair envy, style envy, swag envy…but proud and inspired!

I’m glad she used the word ‘plait’ no one uses the word any­more, love it going back to our roots…but why sham­poo 2X 2 dif­fer­ent sham­poos back to back




Hair is dope!!! Gor­geous girl.….

Best fro!


Yes! That is all :-)


She seems like a very free spir­it. I love how con­fi­dent she comes across, it’s very refresh­ing.
She looks great from head to toe.


love dra­mat­ic hair


Slam­ming hair and slam­ming body.

She has a great fig­ure — anoth­er sec­tion com­ing on? Nat­u­rals and fit­ness — that would be inspi­ra­tional. This site has so much more scope than hair and style alone.


Final­ly! I had to do a dou­ble take when I saw Adele had been post­ed to the web­site. I get so much inspi­ra­tion from her insta­gram in my own hair and when I style oth­ers! She’s hands down fab­u­lous.


I recent­ly re blogged her pic on my tum­blr! Great hair and great fea­ture!


How cool is she?!!!! I love every pic and that colour is cute and your hair is pop­ping.


It’s awe­some to see Adele Supre­me fea­tured here! Her hair was the inspi­ra­tion for my hair­cut; I total­ly hope my hair grows out to look like hers.


Gor­geous hair! Love the col­or patch too. Head­ing over to check out her site now (^_^)
