You gotta love beauty eccentrics. They powder and primp to the beat of their own drum, societal norms be damned. The year 2009 truly was the year of "The Gaga"—Lady Gaga, that is. Though her style in theory runs the gamut—at once Marilyn Monroe, gothic queen and fierce club kid—she truly has put her stamp on a style that is quintessentially Lady Gaga. Here, a look back on her many hair iterations.
No matter how many crazy headpieces she wears, Gaga returns to her blunt, triangular-shape bob that speaks to exaggeration.
A touch of cotton-candy pink lends her loose curls just the right amount of eccentricity.
Gaga takes an ombre effect to her hair, dipping the midshaft to ends in a romantic lavendar.
A tribute to Minnie Mouse, perhaps? Her hair-bow is one of her more subdued hairstyles.
Side-winder: Often opting for long, flowing locks on one side of the head, she rocks this side-style with a full, blunt fringe.
And you thought such styles could only be found in the pages of a magazine! Gaga takes editorial styling to the streets.
The Lady of Avant-Garde Headgear rocks this starburst hairstyle as though it's perfectly normal.
Different day, bigger bow: Known for wearing restrictive, custom-made fashions during her performances, Gaga's hair actually upstages her duds this time.
