Lady Gaga is a natural brunette but is known for her blonde hair. During her rise to fame in 2008, Gaga wore a long blonde weave with fringe before switching to wigs. Around 30+ hair stylists have worked with Gaga since 2007. Currently, Haus memberFrederic Aspiras is the main hair stylist and wig maker, who joined Gaga in November of 2009.
A natural and solid blonde colored wig is seen in the music videos for her first four singles off The Fame. In the music video for "Poker Face", she is seen with platinum blonde hair. Throughout The Fame era Gaga prominently featured a fringe. She then began experimenting with different colors, such as her lavender wig. When the music video for "Paparazzi" was released, she had moved to a short cut, blonde wig.
During the release of the "Bad Romance" music video, she had a curly blonde wig. While on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, she wore a new wig - half lavender, half solid blonde. One of her most famous and well known wigs, is her hair bow, which she often wore during and shortly after her official debut. Her signature bow has been replicated a few times, and given out to talk show hosts, such as, Oprah Winfrey and Paul O'Grady. During the release of "Telephone", Gaga wore mainly yellow-blond wigs, similar to the wig she wore at the 2010 Grammy Awards. She would continue to use yellow and blond wigs throughout most of the revamped Monster Ball Tour. During the release of "Alejandro", Gaga had a 'fierce purdey haircut', and was most often seen as a bob, or slicked back.
During the the Born This Way era, Gaga experimented with several hair styles. The two most notable and prominently featured hairstyles are the black and blonde variations, starting in February 2011, and the teal hair, starting in June 2011.
In the ARTPOP era, Lady Gaga shows herself in a more natural and feminine way. She sports light brown curls and dark brown long straight hair. In her iTunes London performance she used a Cleopatra-like straight black wig, a light brown curly mane representing Aphrodite/Venus, short blonde natural wig and revealed her real brown hair. For the ARTPOP album cover shoot, she sported a long wavy blonde wig, reminiscent of The Fame era, which she wore versions of for her ABC Special in November, and her performance of 'Venus' on the X-Factor UK. At the ARTPOP listening party in Berlin in late October, she wore a short blonde wig that was slicked back with a long Dali-style moustache. She also began showing her natural hair, which she had done for X-Factor UK, and the iTunes Festival. The "Seashell Girl" hair look became more prevelant in this era, along with dreads.
