The annual British Hairdressing Championship comes to Keighley, a town where Phil, and son, Brian, run a barbershop and Phil's ex-wife, Shelly, and her lover, Sandra, run a beauty salon. Phil and Shelly haven't talked in ten years, since she bolted; she's just found out her cancer is terminal; and Ray Roberts, the reigning hairdressing champion, blows into town taunting Phil for retreating from competitive styling into barbering. Roberts also brings his daughter, Christina, who remembers Brian from when she was a little kid. Everything's set: Brian decides to enter the competition with his mom and Sandra; will Phil join in? Ray wants to win at any cost; will Christina go along? Written by
At one point in the movie, Ray tells Christina that she isn't in Minneapolis anymore. Rachael Leigh Cook, who plays Christina, is a native of Minneapolis. See more »

The camera cuts away from the line and we hear seven more models being called (including Raymond's "plant" who goes to the Style Warriors) before this man is called and directed to Raymond's Hair Studio.

Well, during the opening rolls of this movie, I wondered where would it go as it's mainly about hairdressing! But it took me by surprise. There are couple of fun moments however overall, the movie is kinda dry! I mean this movie could have gone below average if not for the presence of Alan Rickman and Bill Nighy(liked watching him in the Underworld movies). Just their acting lifts the movie from doldrums. Because, otherwise, I felt many of the scenes were handled too simple or plain. Nothing really engaging or memorable to hold your mind. And there was really no need for stars like Josh Hartnett or Rachael Leigh Cook. You could have put some newcomers in their place & the movie would have still run just fine. Talking about the hairdressing scenes if I must, they were handled quite well.
Verdict: If you're a hairdresser(sorry I don't know what else to say), you may like this. Or else, just forget it.
