If I did a research, I believe the percentage of “Lady Gaga” answers to the question “When I say “hair bow”, what is the first image that comes to your mind?” would be close to 100.
Replicas of this famous hair piece can be found in just about every colour all around the world. You can buy them or DIY following some of many online step-by-step “how to do” tutorials.
Many of you have been religiously wearing your own version. And many of you keep asking me for more information about how the bow was brought to life.
I “met” Patricia Morales, the lovely lady behind this iconic creation the other day, so now I can finally tell you.
As a hair and wig stylist, she has always enjoyed designing hair and hair accessories, often combining the two. She first met Gaga back in October 2008 when she worked with her on the groundbreaking award winning video for “Poker Face”.
“I had several concepts in mind for her 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”.
Gaga loved the hair bow so much, she wore it out the night after “Poker Face” shooting was finished. Many of the hair bows she rocked from then on for her performances, appearances or anywhere else were from the hair bow collection Patricia’s created for her.
I also wanted to know where is the original creation now. Patricia, instead of an answer, sent me below photo from her Hollywood studio for you!
