I will show how to derive analytic gravitational waveforms associated to the coalescence of a &ldquo \;hairy&rdquo\; black hole binary in Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet gravity (ESGB). I will present the ESGB post-Newtonian (PN) Lagrangian and gravita tional wave fluxes. The PN framework relies on \;reducing the black ho les to point particles with scalar-field-dependent masses. In light of the first law of thermodynamics of ESGB black holes\, I will show that \; this procedure amounts to fixing their Wald entropies. As a consequence\, inspiraling ESGB black holes can grow scalar &ldquo\;hair&rdquo\; until th ey turn into naked \;singularities. I will then extend the scope of th e PN approximation to the strong field regime near merger by generalizing the Effective-One-Body (EOB) \;formalism to ESGB gravity.
