Referring to Patrizia's hair, he described how it formed his vision for Gaga's onscreen mane, saying, “I wanted the texture. I wanted the vibe. I wanted the way it moved. Exactly the way it felt. Because it needed to transport you to that time.
"This was about 25 years of a person’s life… If you came to our glam trailer, it was like CSI. Floor-to-ceiling mood boards.”
In an interview with People, he also revealed that he sat with the film's script "for five months" while planning out the abundance of wigs.
"I went [through the] script page by page and thought of the characterisation of the person, the inspiration of what this hairstyle was going to look like for that scene, and the actual real-life photo of Patrizia at that time."
Taking it several steps further, the celebrity hairstylist revealed that in order to make her locks perfetto, he created a "500-page directory" detailing Gaga's hairstyles which resulted in ten final wigs.
But it wasn't the extensive directory that broke Aspiras. In fact, it was the moment Gaga asked him to dye her hair brown to prepare for her role that left him in tears.
“We re-dyed her real hair from her platinum signature blonde hair back to brown months before the movie was shot, just so that she could be in the character,” he told People.
“I mean, you’re talking about someone who is so devoted to characterisation and the art that she willingly wanted to colour white hair.
“It was past her shoulder, it was very healthy, gorgeous and wanted to colour it brown. And I was so beside myself. I was crying,” he added. “I was like, ‘Are you sure about that?’ [...] And we coloured it brown.”
