"We wanted to create a timeless and elegant updo. This hairstyle had a few structural parts: the volume at the crown and the twist and knots at the top. It was starting to rain really hard that night, but luckily I used products that bestow a lot of shine and hold. The result was that of classic old Hollywood glamour with a modern twist. It's one of my all-time favorite looks we've done together." 28 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | DECEMBER 2018 Trendsetters/Hollywood Scene Born This Way TOP: JOEY JAMES SALEHI PHOTO; CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT: AXELLE/BAUER-GRIFFIN/FILMMAGIC (2); JAMES DEVANEY/ GC IMAGES; SCOTT KOWALCHYK/CBS VIA GETTY IMAGES; KEVIN MAZUR/GETTY IMAGES FOR LIVE NATION; ANTONY JONES/GETTY IMAGES; KEVIN WINTER/GETTY IMAGES Celebrity stylist Frederic Aspiras dishes on top looks he's created for actress and singer Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga is the queen of versatility: From bright blonde to rainbow hues to volumized knots to laced fi shtail plaits, she isn't afraid to experiment. Since fi rst working with Gaga in 2009 during her Monster Ball tour, Frederic Aspiras (@fredericaspiras) has created some of the chameleon's most memorable 'dos. Here, the celebrity stylist handpicks a few of his favorite looks that he's done for the Grammy- and Emmy-award winner. —JASMINE BROWN Celebrity stylist Frederic Aspiras and client Lady Gaga "This chic and sexy Brigitte Bardot-esque updo with side-swept bangs was perfect for her elegant yet fun Marc Jacobs dress. I love this look on Gaga because it shows off her shoulders and frames her face perfectly in the most seductive way." "This was one of those monumental moments when you realize you've created history! For The Sound of Music tribute, I wanted to create something magical and memorable. I was inspired by the dress and theme of the night. We had done this haircolor years before, but I refreshed the tone and made the roots match the tones of the dress. I loved it because Gaga looked like a shining star!" "I wanted Gaga's hair to have a lot of movement and to play well with both her dancing and costumes." "We were overseas in a church and Lady Gaga saw a statue of the Virgin Mary with a beautiful braid. I was captivated by the statue as well as the turn-of-the-century Victorian design of Gaga's gown. So naturally, I decided to add a corset to the two fi shtail braids that I then braided into a larger fi shtail plait."
