The 2017 American Music Awards served up some pretty *extra* style moments, including a platinum blonde transformation for Selena Gomez and one heck of a show-opening dress from host Tracee Ellis Ross. But Lady Gaga had a showstopping look of her own for fans with an angelic coif of curly hair unlike we’ve ever seen from the “The Cure” singer.

Sharing a behind-the-scenes shot of herself, Mother Monster paid her respects to Azzedine Alaïa, AKA “the King of Cling,” who passed away last week at the age of 82 with a black and white checkered dress in a classic Alaïa silhouette.

It was the “Million Reasons” crooner’s ‘do that had us doing a double take, however, with a set of blonde curls that gave us an instant flashback to perms of the ’80s.

The 31-year-old also gave her followers a close-up look at hairstylist Frederica Spiras‘ handiwork, showing how truly tight each curl was.

Later in the night, she switched things up with a second Alaïa stunner — a sleek LBD —but she kept her perfect ringlets intact, going on to wear them for her jaw-dropping performance.

While we don’t know if Lady Gaga intends to keep the curls around after tonight, we’re loving the look ATM.

Looking gorge, Gaga!
