Shelby Swain is the go-to hairstylist for singer Lizzo.
The creative partnership between Lizzo and Swain has been going strong for over three years after they met on set for the 2016’s “Good as Hell” music video (Lizzo thought she was a model pretending to do hair). She did all of the girl’s hair and did touch-ups and maintained Lizzo’s throughout the video.
Swain believes their personalities mesh very well together and their mutual love is another factor that enables them to challenge each other to try fresh and exciting hairstyles.
Lizzo’s vision of her own is what allows Swain to play and be creative and come up with looks, without having to stay in the safe zone. Shelby knows what Lizzo likes, what she wants, what she probably wouldn’t want, so she is able to offer her only looks that work well for her.
