Lady Gaga has paid tribute to her friend and frequent collaborator Terry Richardson in light of his mother's recent death.

Richardson, a photographer who captures Gaga behind the scenes so often that the pair released a coffee table book of candid images, announced Tuesday that his mother, Annie Lomax, had passed away.

Gaga showed support using a favorite medium: her hair.

"I did it for u Terry," Gaga wrote in a post to, including a photo, above, of her head shaved in the back to resemble Richardson's hairline. "I'm sorry about ure mommy. She has princess die, but were all princess high."

Richardson, who has snapped the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston and Kate Upton for glossy magazines worldwide, on Tumblr shared a series of images of Lomax leading up to her death.
