Ryan Hemsworth’s most recent music video ‘Special Girl’ was filmed at the training school for a prominent chain of hair salons in Shanghai, one of the largest of its kind in China. 

In the video from director Noah Sheldon, hundreds of students are seen cutting and styling models’ hair, as well as participating in group exercises, jogging, clapping and dancing in the building’s courtyard. Between the two impeccably choreographed trained dancers that move throughout the classrooms and Hemsworth’s hip hop infused electro beats, the playful video is a unique look inside one of the country’s quirkiest brands.
