How To Get Lady Gaga's Grace Kelly-Inspired Hair

by Rosie Narasaki

Lady Gaga's always been known for pulling out all the stops, fashion-wise, but at the 2015 Emmys, Lady Gaga really surprised us all — instead of her usual drama-filled numbers, she went for a pared-down, simple look. That's not to say it wasn't fabulous, though. As minimalist as her look was, she still managed to cut quite a figure on the red carpet, especially with her on point styling. Her hair was particularly covetable, and as luck would have it, her hairstylist, Frederic Aspiras, has broken down exactly how to get the look — so, if you're a fan, read on for tips on how to steal Lady Gaga's latest hairstyle.

It's usually Mad Men star January Jones that pulls in all of the Grace Kelly lookalike comments, but this year, Lady Gaga's elegantly retro platinum blonde 'do definitely evoked the Old Hollywood screen siren as well. It was the perfect accoutrement to go with her one-shouldered black gown (which was designed by her stylist, Brandon Maxwell), as well as her tattoos and the mega-glamorous false eyelashes she donned for the evening.

Aspiras started the hairdo by applying MATRIX StyleLink Volume Builder Volume Mousse to Gaga's wet hair. He then followed the product with more products, mixing MATRIX StyleLink Smooth Setter Smoothing Cream and MATRIX StyleLink Gloss Booster to — you guessed it — smooth flyaways and add gloss. For extra measure, he also added in some MATRIX StyleLink Turbo Dryer Blow Dry Spray to further shine up the hair (and ease the damaging blow-drying process).

The next step is one we're all fairly familiar with — Aspiras proceeded to blow-dry her hair, with the help of a two-inch titanium brush. Once he finished drying her hair, he went in with more product (this time MATRIX StyleLink Shape Switcher Molding Paste) to help create that ultra-precise sculpted look Gaga was rocking. And last but not least? He finished the look with hairspray (MATRIX StyleLink Texture Builder Messy Finish Spray), to add in a little extra volume (and keep everything in place, of course).

It's not exactly a look you can rock on the regular, but it might be fun for the next time you head out to the opera? Or perhaps for a Grace Kelly and/or Gaga Halloween costume?
