Storyline

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 UrbanWorks Entertainment

Excellent and highly underrated!
5 June 2005 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

This movie was so underrated, I just can't believe it! I loved every minute of it from beginning to end. Mo'nique did such an amazing job. For the most part she was her usual funny & crazy self, but she did also have some serious parts and I was so impressed. She even had me in tears during one scene - no lie! The rest of the cast were all very good as well. Also many people I appeared in quick 'few minute' scenes throughout the movie which was cool. Some were Vivica A. Fox, comedian Bruce Bruce, Serena Williams, super fine Bryce Wilson (from Beauty Shop-mmm!), E-40 (my favorite rap star) and many more! The story was also very good. Don't pay attention to this films ratings.. it was an excellent movie!
