Shelly was raised by his single mother since his father left the family soon after his birth; according to interviews, Shelly saw his father only once, when he was seven years old. His mother remarried and the whole family moved to San Francisco, California, however, after only three months they moved to San Bernardino, since his stepfather, had a barber shop in the city.

Before his career in the entertainment industry commenced, Shelly was a police officer, which laid the basis of his net worth, but after writing so many crime reports, creative writing apparently came naturally to Shelly. Also, at the time he was an aspiring disc jockey and left his job as a police officer to pursue potential careers in both music and writing.

He moved to Los Angeles and produced several records for Liberty Records, but after few relatively unsuccessful attempts, he switched his focus to acting. He made his debut in 1979 in the Golden Globe Award- nominated comedy directed by Stan Dragoti, “Love at First Bite”, starring George Hamilton, Richard Benjamin and Susan Saint James. Following that, he focused more on stage acting, but after a few appearances he started working on his own material.

Shelly’s first creation was the comedy “Snuff and Mini-Skirts” in 1983, then three years later he created his eponymous comedy play “Beauty Shop”, which topped the box office in 55 cities across the USA, making him one of the most successful theater writers and producers at that time, and boosted his net worth up to multimillionaire level. Thanks to his success, Shelly received the keys of 22 cities across the USA, and was also given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1992. Since then, he has written numerous plays, which have also added to his wealth, but none of them came close to the success of “Beauty Shop”.

In October 2016, Shelly Garrett was inducted into the new Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington D.C. inaugurated only the previous month by President Barack Obama.

Regarding his personal life, Shelly has been married to Doris since 2003. He was also married to singer Meli’sa Morgan from 1993 to 1998. Shelly has two daughters, aged 36, and 27, mother(s) unknown.
