Helmed by Chris Rock, GOOD HAIR is an expose of comic proportions as beauty salons and hairstyling battles, scientific laboratories and Indian temples are visited revealing the way hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of the black community.
Director Jeff Stilson follows Chris Rock on this raucous 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 of figuring out how to respond to his daughter's question.
GOOD HAIR marks a 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 is produced by Chris Rock and Kevin O'Donnell.
