"She's a brilliant artist, it's harder than you think to do men's hair... But she made it look easy... She listened to everything that I wanted and didn't make me feel like a prima donna about wanting everything. She's the best."

"I’ve been an actor on the film industry for 30 years and Shelly Baxter is one of the most talented and capable hair AND make-up artists I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with by far. Simply put she is extraordinary. Her range of skills is absolutely astonishing - There is literally nothing she can’t do. Not to mention she does it all in record time while being unfailingly delightful, warm, humorous, and collaborative despite the immense pressure and crushing fatigue of life on a film set. She is exemplary both as a professional and as a person. When I grow up I want to be Shelly Baxter."

"She created an amazing look for me on Jikirag. I got SO many compliments. Even outside of work, she reached out to her contacts at Furever Freed, and because of that we have a 5th family member, and without her help I’m sure we wouldn’t have. She is a kind and wonderful person, who drove me home from the airport. I’m very lucky to have met her; she helped out my whole family."

Jay Martens

"I first met Shelly, about 1 year ago, on the set of a music video. One of the first impressions I had of her was... Warmth.  She is the type of person that warms up a cold room with her smile, energy and passion. Her love for her family, work and life in general is readily apparent and it is inspirational. Love for family and life aside, there is something truly inspirational about someone who loves their work."

“Shelly not only brings her immense knowledge and unquestionable talent to her work, but also the warmth of family in every room she is in. I look forward to every day on set with her. “
