Lady Gaga's Hair Bow Is Cool From the Front, but Wait Until You See What's Underneath
When it comes to Lady Gaga, we always expect the unexpected, and as the cochair of this year's Met Gala — with a camp theme, nonetheless — we knew we were in for something big. When unwrapping her massive pink hair bow on the carpet tonight, we braced ourselves, and then smiled at the dozens of minuscule bows scattered about. Each bow detail is made from what looks like her own blond hair and feels familiar — like something she might have worn back in 2008.
A seeming homage to her "Poker Face" days, her mini-bow style exemplifies camp at its finest. It is quite the nod to her theatrical, rhinestone sunglasses roots — one that has us wanting to belt out "Just Dance" at the top of our lungs.
"Inspired by one of Lady Gaga's most iconic hair looks, this truly stands out as a note of camp-style. I decided to deconstruct the iconic bob and hair bow and give the bob a new rippled wave shape and make multiple mini hair bow throughout the hair," said Gaga's longtime hairstylist Frederic Aspiras who also walked the red carpet with the star. After drying the hair, Aspiras used a ghd Platinum+ Festival Collection Styler to create soft waves and a rippled bubble effect. Then, he applied gel to the mini hair bows and locked them in place with bobby pins.
