Frederic Aspiras has been tending to Lady Gaga’s striking blond strands for a decade, but her ever-evolving style keeps his techniques fresh. “She doesn’t have a go-to look at all; we’re always trying new things.” Here, his top three hacks to keep her hair as healthy as possible.

Light Styling
Gaga’s ever-changing platinum hair requires heavy maintenance, so Aspiras is careful not to overstyle her already delicate strands. In his toolkit: Wet Brushes ($12) for damp hair, Mason Pearson brushes ($150) for dry hair, a giant “U” pin, which he uses to twist the hair up in lieu of hair ties, and amika The Antidote Silk Wrap Styler ($150), which helps mend damage. To curb color fade, it’s Joico Blonde Life Brightening Masque ($21).

Color Kit
To keep Gaga’s brunette, on-screen strands fresh in A Star Is Born, Aspiras would shampoo and deep-condition her hair daily, creating the need for weekly color touch-ups. Vegan and sulfate-free Celeb Luxury Viral Colorwash ($35) and Color Wow Brass Banned Correct and Perfect Mousse ($24) helped maintain her color, and Olaplex No. 3 ($28) was also a godsend. “It relinks the broken bonds in the hair to prevent breakage from all of the bleach,” he says. 

Magic Potions
“I always carry a bag with various essential oils and mix them into hair oils like the Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Oil ($38),” notes Aspiras. His favorite elixir: coconut oil, olive oil and lavender essential oil. “It’s super calming and soothing for stressed-out hair.”
