As anyone who jumped back in 2008 for her blunt bangs can tell you, the iconic Lady Gaga rolodex hairstyles can often serve as the best inspiration. This also appears to be the case with the star herself, who is no stranger dusting off a shade or style from years past. (After all, there are just so many shades in the rainbow.) Even while she seems to be fringe-free at the moment, Lady Gaga’s bright blue hair made a comeback on Aug. 14 — this time with an oceanic twist and an incredibly intimate meaning.
The elegant green-blue tone is courtesy of the hairstylist Frederic Aspiras, a long-time member of the beauty team of the multi-hyphenate (and, as it is, the maker of Gaga’s icy blue look from the 2019 Golden Globes), according to an Instagram post Gaga made post-colour. “Hello Merpeople. Rocking color by @fredericaspiras named after his mother who just passed…Suzie’s Ocean Blonde. I love you Freddie 💕💕 this was extra special glamour with love,” the singer caught the photo.
“I’ve come so desperately to find every bit of joy in the smallest things,” Frederic Aspiras shared on his own Instagram account following Gaga’s post. “Being that my Mother was my role model as a hairdresser, I’m trying my hardest to find the joy even in what I love to do the most, which is doing hair. Yesterday, @ladygaga, you gave me back my joy again by reminding me what my Mom told me long ago about what I loved to do the most and that is create with love.”
