What a night for Lady Gaga! From her much-anticipated performance of “Shallow” with costar Bradley Cooper to her Best Original Song win, the 2019 Oscars was a great one for the singer/actress. She also looked absolutely stunning with her strapless Alexander McQueen gown, massive yellow diamond Tiffany & Co. necklace (which, fun fact, was last worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1961) and structured French twist courtesy of celeb stylist @fredericaspiras! While we can’t get you access to the $30M piece of jewelry, we can tell you how to recreate this elegant Oscars updo—read on!

Products Used



Prep the hair by washing with Joico Defy Damage Protective Shampoo


Apply Joico Defy Damage Protective Masque and let sit for 5 minutes before rinsing.


Towel-dry, then apply two to three pumps of Joico Defy Damage Protective Shield and evenly distribute the product through the hair using a ghd detangling comb.


Apply one to two pumps of Joico Blonde Life Brilliant Glow Brightening Oil to damp hair to add shine and softness, then comb through with a ghd paddle brush.


Divide the hair into small sections and use the ghd air® hairdryer and ghd natural bristle brush in size 2 to dry the hair away from the face.


Then, use the ghd curve® soft curl iron and curl from the midlengths to the ends to create loose, soft waves. Let the curls cool.


Spray Joico Hair Shake directly at the crown and then throughout the rest of the hair while using the ghd paddle brush to gently loosen up the curls.


Gather the hair up into two ponytails—one large ponytail at the crown and one small ponytail in the back. Then, backcomb and twist/shape the hair into a wavy bun.


Define her curls using the ghd curve® classic wave wand, then finish with Joico JoiShape Shaping & Finishing Spray and Joico Power Spray Fast-Drying Finishing Spray for extra hold.
