We never really know what to expect from Lady Gaga or her stylists. Equal parts genius and strange, she takes no prisoners when it comes to pushing the boundaries of creativity.

Even before The Fame, Gaga’s daring and experimental attitude would shine through every aspect her work, whether it’s music, style, films or other medium.

Over the years, she relentlessly reinvents her aesthetic by bringing those imaginative, head-in-the-cloud ideas to life no matter how controversial or welcomed.

An individualist by nature, her attitude is appreciated at Chumba and her aesthetics, whether hair, fashion or artistry are no doubt as inspirational as they are notoriously disruptive.


Honorable mention: The Beckham's

 The Beckhams might not be actual royalty, but that never stopped them from looking regal.

Needless to say, together they’ve inspired many of us to elevate our styles and men to get regular haircuts since 2002.

Widely regarded as fashion and cultural icons, the Beckham's not only don the most sophisticated styles, they take cues straight from the front rows of London Fashion Week and do so with a seriously impressive attention to detail that brings their best hairstyles and threads to life.
