With so many gorgeous gals taking their tresses to the next level with colors, cuts, and styles, it’s only natural to have a major case of hair envy. The Mane Attraction will help you sort through which looks are worth trying with a biweekly dive into the latest hair trends taking over the red carpet and Instagram.
Celebs attending the 2019 Golden Globes, held on Sunday, January 6, in Los Angeles, mostly played it safe with predictable hair colors, but we can always count on Lady Gaga to stand out on the red carpet. While some stars chose to make a statement with blue eye makeup, the Golden Globe winner dyed her locks to match her cerulean blue Valentino Haute Couture dress (which bore a striking resemblance to a look worn by Judy Garland in 1954’s A Star Is Born). “She’d experimented with this bold, blue hair color for her Las Vegas shows, and when the gown arrived for fittings, the color came to life,”celebrity hairstylist Frederic Aspiras tells Brit + Co. “The elegant updo perfectly completed this red carpet hair, showing off the cool, blue tone.”

Aspiras started with Joico Blonde Life Powder Lightener ($25) to create a platinum base. For the cerulean blue hue, he combined Joico Color Intensity Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Sky ($10) and Rose ($12) along with Joico Vero K-Pak Color Intensity Semi-Permanent Clear Mixer ($12).

Once the color was perfected, he prepped the “Shallow” singer’s hair using Joico Blonde Life Brightening Veil ($7) and dried her hair using ghd Natural Bristle Radial Brush Size 1 ($40) and ghd Air Professional Performance Hairdryer ($199) on high heat and medium speed. He smoothed strands with a pass of a ghd Platinum+ Professional Performance 1″ Styler ($249) and a spritz of throughout.
To style, Aspiras pulled her hair into a high ponytail that was then wrapped and twisted into a half bun, leaving the ends out. He curled the remaining strands around a ghd Curve 1.25″ Soft Curl Iron ($199), positioning them on each side of the bun, and finished with an allover spritz of Joico Humidity Blocker Finishing Spray 02 ($18).
Gaga, who was nominated in four categories for the night, took home a Golden Globe for her hit song, “Shallow,” which debuted in A Star Is Born. In her acceptance speech, she thanked her producers and all the people who stood by her side and helped her get to that point, closing with a heartfelt “I love you” to co-star and film producer Bradley Cooper.
