Lady Gaga may not have been able to make it to Sunday night’s American Music Awards, but that didn’t stop her from pulling out all the stops. Along with recreating the AMA’s red carpet solely for her Instagram (we aspire to be this level of extra), the 31-year-old singer also debuted a fresh and unusual hair color: copper blonde.
Gaga showed off her new ‘do on her self-made red carpet, where she posed in front of an identical AMA backdrop, while flaunting her curves in a body-hugging black dress. The “Bad Romance” hitmaker wore her freshly dyed copper-blonde hair (a stark contrast from her usual platinum-blonde locks) in dramatic spiral curls, which perfectly framed her face as they cascaded down her shoulders.
Frederic Aspiras, the hairstylist behind Gaga’s hair, explained on Instagram that he permed the singer’s locks to acquire her accentuated curls. To protect her vibrant color, Aspiras recommends hair oils that lock in the shade. Additionally, to match Gaga’s copper hair, the singer’s makeup artist, Sarah Tanno, didn’t skimp on the metallic colors, including copper lipstick and rosy pink eyeshadow.
And though Gaga didn’t physically make it to the American Music Awards (she’s on an international tour—NBD), the singer’s slay-worthy performance of “The Cure” (which was broadcast live from her concert in Washington D.C.) still managed to steal the show. Your fave could never.
