"Tangles & Locks" follows four of the twenty-four salons in the "11th Annual Golden Scissors Awards." Tangles & Locks is quirky, poignant and relevant as the first documented TV venture into the world of the black hair-show phenomenon.
A two-hour special that documents the unique history of fashion show-man, Glynn Jackson, a.k.a. "Fashion Jackson." Allowing us his "like-no-other," insight, Mr. Jackson takes us into his process of putting on one of the biggest black hair shows in America, "The Golden Scissors Awards." Written by
A very original concept and usually entertaining, but at 2 hours it was a bit too long and repetitive. It could have come in at 90 min., or 100 min. at the most. Nonetheless, a good effort and I would watch it again (aired on TV One). It shows the ins and outs and ups and downs of being a small businessman/black entrepreneur, both from the salon and the promoter perspectives. It appeared that the documentary was filmed in 2002-03 but did not get released until 2005. Getting the financing for this film may be the subject of another interesting documentary! I also found it odd that some of the models gave attitude about how their hair was being styled, etc. Unless you are Naomi, Kate Moss, etc., I can't see that A MODEL should dictate his/her look. As the name suggests, your role is to model/show SOMEONE ELSE'S WORK. In all, a unique and enjoyable effort.
