Recreate One of Lizzo’s Four Hairstyles From The Grammys

The Grammy Award-winning artist aced the red carpet with help from celebrity hairstylist Shelbe Swain

The “Truth Hurts” singer was nominated for eight Grammy Awards last night at the 62nd annual award show. Before winning three awards including Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts,” Urban Contemporary Album for Cuz I Love You, and Traditional R&B Performance for “Jerome,” Lizzo won big on the red carpet. After strutting her stuff on the carpet, Lizzo headed on stage to open the ceremony with a flawless performance of her hit “Cuz I Love You” in a custom Christian Siriano gown. Throughout the evening Lizzo donned four (yes, four) different hairstyles and made waves while channeling old Hollywood sophistication and edgy glamour.

The singer-songwriter worked with celebrity hairstylist Shelbe Swain, who is known as “The Beyonce of Babyhair.” Swain used Matrix Total Results products and GHD tools on Lizzo’s tressles. Check out how Swain executed Lizzo’s stunning red carpet hair look.

1. To ensure Lizzo hair was picture-perfect I began by cleansing and conditioning the hair using Matrix Total Results Dark Envy Shampoo and Matrix Total Results Dark Envy Conditioner. I love the Matrix Total Results Dark Envy Shampoo and Matrix Total Results Dark Envy Conditioner collection, because they perfectly tone and remove any brassiness from the hair so that each snap of the camera is radiant and true to tone.

2. For a big day like the Grammy Awards, to alleviate any stress on the hair I reinforced the conditioner with Dark Envy Color Obsessed Mask to soften the hair, neutralize red tone and maintain it for the other looks of the day.

3. Once hair was cleansed and conditioned we began styling. The first look of the day was the Elegant Vintage wave, which I used the Matrix Total Results Curl Please Contouring Lotion on damp hair and then blew the hair with the GHD Blow dryer to create volume.

4. Then, I curled and finished the hair using the GHD Curve Curling iron and Matrix Total Results High Amplify Proforma Hairspray and Matrix Total Results High Amplify Flexible Hold Hairspray to help build volume, lock in the style, but still provide the hair with natural movement. Lizzo glimmered on the red carpet and I owe that to great products and tools!
