Background

Crystal Hayslett has been a fashion lover since she was a kid. There wasn’t a mall in Martin, Tennessee, so her family would have to travel to shop. She stayed abreast with fashion trends by watching TV shows like “The Fresh Prince of Bel-air,” “A Different World,” and “106 & Park.” She also read magazines like “Elle, Ebony, Vibe, Jet, and Word Up!

Hayslett studied at the University of Tennessee and once she was done with her studies, she found work at a local boutique. She left Washington, D.C. in 2009 and moved to Atlanta to pursue music and acting. The music went pretty well for her at first, but she started hitting roadblocks. She found trouble looking for a good production team, trying to get closer to a good deal. She was performing and doing shows around the city, and her friend, who was her stylist, complimented her on her good fashion sense. She encouraged her to seek out a stylist opportunity, and she finally got a job at Tyler Perry Studios as a production assistant in 2012. Crystal worked in the costume department and was promoted after two years to become the studio’s costume designer as well as Tyler Perry’s personal stylist.

Under Perry’s constant watch and wing, the Tennessee native was given full support to become a consultant producer and a guest star in his most recent hit series, BET’s “Sistas.” She began airing on October 23, 2019, and she portrayed the role of Fatima in the comedy-drama. She has also worked as a stylist on Tyler Perry’s film “Acrimony,” as well as “Young Dylan” (2020), “Nobody’s Fool” (2018), “Boo! A Madea Halloween” (2016), “The Haves and the Have Nots” (2013), and “The Paynes” (2018), to mention a few. Besides being a costume designer and an actress, Hayslett is also a producer as well as an executive director.
