LADY GAGA at oscars

GET the LOOK:  Lady Gaga works voluminous platinum waves at the 88th Annual Academy Awards by stylist Frederic Aspiras for Pai-Shau.  The first-time Academy Award nominee Lady Gaga looked gorgeous + very lady on the red carpet.

“Since this is her first nomination for an Oscar, we wanted to create a hair look that was both timeless and glamorous,” explained Aspiras. “I created a sculptured but voluminous look that contoured her face and flattered her dress. I wanted a lot of shine and bounce.”

Here’s the step by step of the look as styled by Frederic for Gaga!

Creating the Look:


Step 1. Wash hair with Pai-Shau Replenishing Hair Cleanser and rinse thoroughly.
Step 2. Apply Pai-Shau Replenishing Cream Conditioner on the mid shaft to the ends. For medium to coarse hair types, Aspiras suggests using Pai-Shau Hydrating Ritual Supreme Revitalizing Mask.
Step 3. Apply Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion to towel-blotted hair. Make sure to first shake the bottle to activate the product.
Step 4. Apply Pai-Shau Royal Abundance Mousse from the roots to the ends.
Step 5. Blow dry the hair with a boar bristle round brush making sure that the hair is voluminous and smooth.

Pin Curl:

Step 6. Beginning at the front of the hairline, apply Pai-Shau Royal Abundance Mousse to the first section of hair and curl with a curling iron (1″ iron for the front hairline section; 1 1/4″ iron for the crown down to the nape). Hold the curled piece of hair in your hand and apply Pai-Shau Royal Abundance Mousse to it, then pin the curl in place.

Step 7. Once all of the hair is pin curled, put under a dryer hood for 15 minutes. Then let the hair cool for 5 minutes.
Step 8. Remove the pins from the hair and brush out the hair.
Step 9. Begin sculpting the hair with Pai-Shau Style Soufflé and a wide tooth comb.
Step 10. Once you have achieved your desired look, apply a small amount of Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion to the ends for added smoothness.
Step 11. Finish with Pai-Shau Imperial Hold Hairspray.
