Lady Gaga slayed the 2016 Oscar red carpet and her hair was reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour created by celebrity hairstylist, Frederic Aspiras.“We wanted a timeless and elegant look for her first Oscars. I created perfectly structured, voluminous curls to frame her face.” So how did it all come together?
“To start, I washed the hair and rinsed thoroughly. I then blow dried the hair using my ghd air™ hairdryer and a boar bristle round brush, making the hair voluminous and smooth. I then sprayed the hair with a heat protectant spray before we started styling.
I used ghd curve Classic Curl Iron 1” at the front of the hairline and ghd Curve Soft Curl Iron 1.25” from the crown down to the nape. After curling each piece, I held the curl in my hand and sprayed it with a curl hold spray, then pinned the curl in place. Once all of the hair was pin curled, she sat under a dryer hood for 15 minutes, then let the hair cool for another 5 minutes.
Finally, we removed all pins and brushed out the hair with a Mason Pearson Brush. We then sculpted the hair with a wide tooth comb. Once the hair looked perfect, we finished with hairspray to hold the look in place.”
