    • Synopsis
    • A raucous exploration of the way hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of the black community, GOOD HAIR visits beauty salons, hairstyling battles, scientific laboratories and Indian temples to get to the root of this US$ 9 billion industry. Director Jeff Stilson follows Chris Rock on this probing adventure prompted by Rock’s daughter approaching him and asking “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?” Hair care professionals, beauty shop and barbershop patrons, as well as celebrities including Ice-T, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven Symone, Maya Angelou, Salt n Pepa, Eve and Reverend Al Sharpton, all candidly offer their stories and observations to Rock while he struggles with the task to figuring out how to respond to his daughter’s question.
      GOOD HAIR marks the successful reunion of the team behind Rock’s acclaimed and Emmy Award-winning HBO series The Chris Rock Show, including producer Nelson George, writer-director Jeff Stilson, writers Lance Crouther and Chuck Sklar. The film was produced by Chris Rock and Kevin O’Donnell. GOOD HAIR is presented by HBO Films and has garnered box-office results of US$ 2.8 million in its first 17 days of theatrical release via Liddell Entertainment and Roadside Attractions.
