Hello? hello? baby you called?
I can't hear a thang.....
You probably couldn't hear anything because that outfit is so loud. But you gotta give props where props is due, and therefore I'm sending all my props in Lady Gaga's direction. Love her or hate her, she's got a unique look all her own. So for Halloween.... or maybe like a conservative family get together (note heavy sarcasm), you can use this i'ble to help recreate the famous soda can hair rollers look in her Telephone video.
Step 1: Gather Your Weapons....
When I was preparing to make this instructable, I stared into my bathroom for all the things I would need. And I just grabbed pretty much every hairspray, eye shadow, bobby pin, makeup brush, and face painting goodies (aka makeup) as I could, shoved them into a suitcase and drove to my friend's house (Im pretty sure my boyfriend was hoping I would never come back home with said bag, as my makeup has engulfed our bathroom...but i digress).
So below, I have a general list of things you will need. I will get more in depth on the photos of the brands and specific products I am using to achieve this look.
Things you will need:
-A willing model. Thankfully my friend Christina is already gorgeous to boot, so there was really no way to make her look bad. (You could also do this on yourself, but have a friend help with rolling the hair up)
-4-6 soda cans. It looks like she uses Diet Coke in the video.... all we had was caffeine free diet coke.... it really doesnt make a difference. Use Pabts cans for all i care... as long as they are a standard aluminum can, it should work fine. Be sure to rinse them out real good! No need to have warm, drippy, soda all over your hair and face.
-Lots of bobby pins
-Clips (to section off the hair)
-Optional.... Dry shampoo or hair powder to create texture
-Optional.....Shine spray to finish the hair
-Dark maroon lipstick
-False lashes (at least two pair) and eyelash glue
-Eyeshadow Pallet (have at least a neutral pale whitish color, black, and dark brown for brows)
-Optional....highlight and lowlight makeup
-Hardware (For this look, we used a cool necklace)
