For Sunday night’s Grammy Awards red carpet, Lady Gaga’s hair made a goth Victorian statement with a romantic, corseted braid. Inspired by the design of Lady Gaga’s Armani Privé dress, celebrity stylist, Frederic Aspiras, was immediately reminded of the gowns and corsets of the Victorian era.
Aspiras began by spraying John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Hydration Detangling Mist throughout Gaga’s wet hair to help comb out any tangles and then applied Luxurious Volume Perfectly Full Mousse for volume and texture. Next he created a center park and dried the hair with a diffuser to “set” it. While braiding both sides (leaving the center straight), Aspiras used Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel to control and maintain smoothness of the two side braids. Towards the end of the locks, he merged both braids with the center section and and tied the ends with a clear elastic. Then, he wove the corset with a black lace. To finish and hold the style, Aspiras sprayed several coats of Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray.
