Lady Gaga and the Hair Bow

Since Lady Gaga is heading over here to give us a show it seems only fair to honour one of her most FAMOUS styles and believe it or not its not a piece of clothing.

Patricia Morales, her hair stylist, said

“I had several concepts in mind for the poker face video and the idea of a bow made of hair was one that she was interested in using for the video. Gaga wanted a bow that had more of a Hello Kitty shape and so together, we modified the original idea and created the iconic hair bow seen in the video”.

Although I am struggling to find any information on the history of the "Hair Bow" I have found this picture dating 1940, proving that Lady Gaga did not in fact invent the hair bow.

This fab trend would take a stylist a few hours to do and would cost a pretty penny, but you can cheat the system by getting a hair piece made or buying one from an accessories shop and then simply fixing it to your head when you'd like to wear it. :)

One of my fav adaptations of the hair bow was done by Chanel adding a slight minnie mouse ear feel to the look

till next time
