Whether you’ve seen her perform live, watched her kill it in “A Star Is Born” or caught her 2019 Grammy Awards performance, there’s no denying that Lady Gaga is a true rock star. And that was the theme of the night for the singer/actress, who donned a silver, fitted Cèline gown and textured, lived-in waves courtesy of celeb stylist Frederic Aspiras (@fredericaspiras). Scroll on to get the deets behind this edgy red carpet look!


Inspiration: “Inspired by the rock star culture and her character Ally from the movie ‘A Star Is Born,’ we opted for a more lived-in look with lots of texture while keeping the hair healthy and soft,” he shares. “I also experimented with two types of waves to give a more signature look.”

Products Used



Wash the hair with Joico Defy Damage Protective Shampoo and Conditioner to prevent damage and replenish moisture, leaving the hair healthy and shiny.


On damp, towel-dried hair, apply Joico Defy Damage Protective Shield from the roots to the ends to protect the hair against mechanical and thermal damage.


Use the ghd detangling comb to distribute the product throughout, then divide the hair into four sections.


Apply Joico Blonde Life Brilliant Tone Violet Foam Styler to each section, then blow-dry the hair downwards using the ghd air® hairdryer and ghd paddle brush, leaving minimal volume at the roots.


Then, create two types of waves/curls by using two different irons. Use the ghd platinum+ styler to create wide flat “S” waves throughout and use the ghd curve® soft curl iron to “curl and slide” the hair. “The two textures of waves/curls give a more natural, lived-in look,” says Frederic.


Spray Joico Body Shake throughout the hair while shaking out the waves with your fingers.


Use the ghd air® hairdryer on the cold temp and low setting to move and open the waves more while closing the hair cuticles, making the hair shiny.


Finish by applying Joico Blonde Life Brilliant Glow Brightening Oil on the ends, leaving the rest of the hair as is to give it more of a textured, lived-in look.
