The Lexus Luxury Awaits campaigned sponsored a recent screening of Chris Rock’s new documentary “Good Hair” at the Regal Theater in Atlanta, GA on September 24, 2009. The stars came out to shine and rule the the red carpet to view the award winning film and support Chris Rock.
The concept of the 2009 Sundance Festival award winning film developed after Rock’s young young daughter Lola came inside from playing one day and asked him, “Daddy, why don’t I have good hair?” It delves into how the idea of good hair was created and perpetuated throughout the African American community and how that notion has funded a multimillion dollar worldwide industry. Rock begins by examining the Bonner Brothers hair show phenomenon where he discovers an entire underworld of hair shows and the stylists who complete for the crowning glory. He also visits barber shops, beauty salons, chemical relaxer factories,and even travels to the international weave mecca: India. From celebrity commentaries from notables such as Maya Angelou, Rev. Al Sharpton, Nia Long, Ice-T, Salt N Pepa , and Kerry Washington to the definitions offered by regular salon patrons, Rock aims to offer a holistic view of the definition of “good” hair. He even explores how African American hair care impacts activities (most notably swimming and exercise), pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem.
