Lady Gaga doesn't see the need to keep hair so close to her head -- or stop with her own hair. She takes the ancient hair shirt to new lengths with a dress made of braided blond locks and a frizzy hair skirt. Another hair dress is more along the Lady Godiva lines -- strategically draped and belted. Hair shows up in other outfits as a monstrous head dressing.

She's creative with her own hair, too. A natural brunette, Lady Gaga dyes her hair platinum blond, but frequently tints parts of it with crayon colors. She's turned it into an actual hair bow, a sun hat, and countless other shapes. The chemicals are damaging, though. Gaga says she misses her natural color because her blond hair is falling out. Fashion lesson: Treat your tresses tenderly, or they'll be hair today, gone tomorrow.
