The Red Carpet report | Lizzo x Shelby Swain

How Lizzo slayed on the 2020 Billboard Music Awards red carpet

Celebrity hairstylist Shelby Swain kept things simple with a snatched ponytail for Lizzo’s 2020 Billboard Music Awards appearance.

“Lizzo wanted to do something sleek to fit with the dress as the dress was such a big statement, so we went with a snatched pony. It was a Naomi Campbell moment,” said celebrity hairstylist Shelby Swain.


  1. Start by washing the hair with an amplified textures shampoo and conditioner. After hair is washed, blow dry using the ghd helios professional hairdryer to create a sleek and glossy finish
  2. Next, sculpt hair into a ponytail. Once secured, straighten the hair using the ghd platinum+ styler
  3. To finish the look, use the ghd curve soft curl tong to create bouncy waves for a luxe ponytail
