The beYOUtiful Life: Hair Notes from the 2019 BET Awards

The 2019 BET Awards celebration was one for the record books, and when it comes to hair, we must say, “they came to slay.” Here are a few hair notes and observations.


Lizzo’s natural hair is the “Glow-up!” If you didn’t know who Lizzo was before, you know it now. She’s the real deal.

Lizzo came to the 2019 BET Awards in a custom couture outfit. While it definitely made a statement, we couldn’t get over the natural styling. We caught up with celebrity hairstylist, Shelby Swain, who was responsible for achieving Lizzo’s look. She shared, “I wanted to create an iconic look specially since Lizzo wanted to wear wood grain! I thought wood grain hair would be perfect!” Swain continued, “We look forward to sculpting Lizzo’s natural hair to achieve regal looks any chance we get.”

Yahoo Lifestyle put it this way:

Reason 15937 why we love Lizzo: she isn’t afraid to own what’s hers. The Juice singer and body activist has the tunes and attitude to make us feel great about our bodies and Sunday night at the BET Awards Lizzo championed for #TeamNatural.

Shelby Swain, the self-proclaimed “Beyoncé Of Baby Hair,” also created Lizzo’s attention-grabbing headpiece using 100 percent hair. Later in the show, the singer swapped her natural hair for a long, curly wig that was equally cool, proving that Lizzo, indeed, has the juice no matter what style she’s rocking.
