Good Hair Hits The UK On June 25th | Exclusive Film Clip

“We’re 12% of the population but we buy 80% of the hair” –Bernard Bronner

We’ve already had our say, but if you haven’t yet seen Chris Rock‘s documentary on black hair culture – Good Hair – you’ll be pleased to know it hits the UK on June 25th.

Check out this exclusive clip we’ve been provided with for insight as Rock takes you to the biannual Bronner Bros International Hair Show in Atlanta for a chat with President and CEO Bernard Bronner, whose father founded the event over 60 years.

An exposé of comic proportions that only Chris Rock could pull off, GOOD HAIR visits beauty salons and hairstyling battles, scientific laboratories and Indian temples to explore 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?” Haircare professionals, beautyshop and barbershop patrons, as well as celebrities including Ice-T, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven Symoné, 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.
