Peaches, a hair stylist from Baltimore, and her estranged sister, Angela, the owner of an upscale salon in Beverly Hills, get reacquainted when Peaches decides to attend a celebration for Angela in LA. The reunion is bittersweet and worsens when Angela finds out that Peaches is on the run from the IRS and has only a few days to pay $50,000 in back taxes. After some hilarious moments and passionate exchanges, the two sisters join forces to fight off a pesky rival salon owner Marcella and save Peaches from her troubles by competing for a lucrative cash prize and bragging rights at the city's annual hair show. BEAUTY SHOP proves that blood and family run thicker than water. Written by
Was originally entitled "Beauty Shop", but was changed to avoid a title clash with Beauty Shop. See more »
On Peaches' first day at her sister's salon, she is wearing a white top. She is still wearing only the white shirt when she and Tiffany are watching one of the male stylists escort his female client out the door. In the very next shot after that one, Peaches is suddenly wearing an open burgundy shirt over the white shirt. See more »
I thought this film was okay once the director decided not to go for outright comedy and tell a story. Hairshow is not a comedy I would call it light entertainment. When I watched the opening scene that had Monique putting salt in her coffee I thought to myself that if this is all they can do for comedy then this film is going to be a disaster. The will reading scene did make me laugh but from then on it was just light entertainment. I loved both the leading actresses Monique and Kellita Smith and I have a soft spot for Gina Torres being a 'Firefly' fan. The film had standard situations, sibling rivalry, competition with another hair salon and a tangled love life and off course a competition. Who will win? Anyway I liked hair show, would not buy unless I found it at a knockdown low price but I liked it. The only thing I could not get my head around was the leading mans choice of woman, but to each his own.
