Chris Rock Asks: What is 'Good Hair?'

Friday, October 09, 2009

Customers and stylists at Ambiance Hair and Spa in Brooklyn, NY answer the question: is there such a thing as "good hair"?

Chris Rock’s new documentary, “Good Hair,” will be released nationwide today. It explores issues about black women’s hair – from self-perceptions about texture to the origins of hair used in weaves. What is good hair? Is there such a thing? We ask Noliwe Rooks, director of Princeton's Center for African American Studies, and Marvet Britto, an entertainment executive and weave-enthusiast, who appears in Rock’s film.
