We're SO having a Good Hair day!

28 June 2010

Girls, girls, girls, have you heard about Good Hair? Forget about the arguments you and your mates have had about whether or not you loved Sex and the City 2. There’s just one film this summer that has had no hype, isn’t a sequel and stars not a single Hollywood icon. YET fashionistas and film critics alike have been falling over themselves to give it the gold stars!

Step forward American comedian Chris Rock who has made a documentary called Good Hair about the multi-billion dollar business of black hair styling – specifically ‘relaxing’ hair and hair ‘weaves’. And as all Grazia readers blessed with curly Afro hair will know, it isn’t cheap (or fun, with all those chemical fumes) getting your hair done, and is even considered by some, rather a taboo subject.

Everyone who's seen it agrees it's a totally entertaining couple of hours, and that Mr Rock is brilliantly engaging with unexpected skills in the film-making department.

Watch a snippet here, then promptly get thee to a cinema and watch the full version!
