L.A. Premiere Of Good Hair

YBF chicks were in full effect at last night's L.A. premiere of Chris Rock's documentary Good Hair:

Nia Long--featured in the movie--looked stunning per usual in this sparked blouse and mini shorts. Gorgeous look and hair and makeup for her. F'in love it.

Gabby Union and Jill Marie put on their best sexy hair poses on the red carpet.

Melyssa Ford and Elise Neal--both are in the movie too--did the same.

And Raven Symone hit the premiere since she's in the movie as well.  I know some folks may not be feeling her look, but she's looking pretty damn fabulous to me.  Work it Ray...

I hit up the screening for Good Hair here in DC last week.  My take: Funny (of course) and indeed a necessary discussion of such a big issue for the black community and women as a whole.  But I do have mixed feelings on the over-generalization, over simplifications, and assumptions made throughout the documentary. At times, it also felt like black women, in particular, were being belittled and slapped in the face for how many of us choose to care for our hair. I also took issue with only one type of hair salon/hair care "professionals" that was being portrayed.  I guess perpetuating the "black ghetto girl" stereotype is great for laughs and all.  But there's indeed a much more fabulous side of black hair care that could have been portrayed as well.  On a more positive note, I do applaud Chris for taking on this project and not waiting around for someone outside of the black community to talk about the issues of our own.  Just my opinion... Lots more pics when you read the rest...

Malaak and Gabby and Chris all looked nice.  I see Malaak is rocking braids now.

Gorgeous gals Gabby Union and Jill Marie Jones.

Our other fave "Girlfriend" Golden Brooks showed off her post baby body.  Looks like all that baby weight is damn near gone already...

Loretta Divine was there.

Eve rocked a cute chic look from Charlotte Ronson.

H-O-T.

Tamala Jones showed off her cute short cut.

Angel Conwell was there.

Cute look for Raven.

 

Chris and pal David Spade kicked it on the carpet.

Actress Jenna Fredrique was there.

Traci Thoms--who's in the movie--was there.

Great look for Melyssa I must admit.

And Elise rocked an interesting dress with thigh high boots.

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

The movie is called "Good

The movie is called "Good Hair" because it a term that has been used so often by the black community, that Chris Rock's daughter (and many others) think there is a such thing as "good hair" vs. "bad hair". He made the movie in response to his daughter being upset that she didn't have "good hair". He wanted to get the idea out there that hair is just hair however you wear it... it's not "good hair" just because it's long, wavy, wash-and-go hair.

The truth is black men have

The truth is black men have no problem with Caucasian and other ethnic women wearing weaves, but when it comes to a sister it is a joke, same no respect and self hatred, I know many women of color that do not use perms, they have naturally long thick hair, they are not insecure, I know sisters that love their kinky, or curly hair short or long the last thing they worry about is this crap he is talking. It is men like this that have no regard or respect for any woman that is not Caucasian, he disrespected his wife , mother,sister,daughter and everyone else with this movie. I have never watched or even glimpsed at any of his movies this will not cause me to break my record, Being from a interracial family it amazes me as to the fact that so many men not all but too many are lost in some time warp. The world is a melting pot. I have Italian friends with coarse hair, Greek friends, Jewish friends with coarse hair, why would he and Oprah , make it seem as if the entire race of women of color are insecure about our hair that no one else in any other culture on the planet has different hair. There is nothing humorous about individuals that are so dysfunctional that their only happiness comes from attacking each other and degrading their women..

Are you trying to say that

Are you trying to say that all women of color have nappy hair, that all women black , or whatever have nappy hair, I know you know that that is not true. And frankly why is it anyone's business? Tell me why anyone is concerned about hair in this manner, while people are dying in Iraq every day, children are starving and going to bed hungry every night, and this man makes a movie ,that needed to be made? That answers questions, it's important OMG!!!! What is wrong with this picture? I am from an interracial family I do not have to perm my hair, I do not have to wear a weave, I do not teach my daughter to worship Caucasian hair, Children are a product of their environment , they are not born with any biases, it's family member and movies like this , that make their lives miserable. This movie has done more damage than it will ever do good..Rush Limbaugh and Glenn beck, love the movie, oh and why was Imus such a bad guy???? anna: I must agree, Dezzi Dez: I think some people are missing the point of this whole movie….Chris Rock isnt saying that weave’s and extensions and such are BAD.Like some of you pointed out, his own WIFE wears extensions and stuff.He’s just researching the thing that black folks have been talkin about for years (hell, decades even)…which is, WHAT IS GOOD HAIR?And do we weave-it-up nowadays because we’ve been brainwashed to think that the silky sleek hair is better than our own naturallykinky hair.I’m sure @ the end of the flick he’s gonna bring it all into perspective as to why we are how we are.I dont think the movie is going to poke fun @ people who wear weaves…..he’s just gonna have a good,funny time while he’s on his journey to find out what’s good hair.Lol!Basically, he made this movie for us black folk who can sit back and laugh about the whole ‘notion’ of good hair and how we act about it and what it means tous.But he also made it for the white folk who dont understand it. the truth is black men have no problem with Caucasian and other ethnic women wearing weaves, but when it comes to a sister it is a joke , same no respect and self hatred, I know many women of color that do not use perms ,they have naturally long thick hair, they are not insecure, I know sisters that love their kinky, or curly hair short or long the last thing they worry about is this crap he is talking.

I wear a weave. It's not

I wear a weave. It's not because I'm self-hating or anything. I work 12 hours a day. Sometimes its easier to wear a weave, than it is to sport my own hair. My hair is long and thick, and it got even longer wearing the weave. I said by Dec i'm going to start wearing my own hair because i'm tired of paying money for a weave. Plus i dont want to have to worry abt the receding hairline as well.

mel: It would be nice to

mel: It would be nice to see some of these women with their real hair. I understand what everyone is saying about how they like their weave and see nothing wrong with it, and I can appreciate that. However, it just seems curious to me that even Melyssa Ford has to don the wig when she goes out, after she been rocking her natural hair since the movie started getting buzz.Im sorry, I just hate that it seems like unless you have curly hair, or are named India Arie, then it’s not pretty or acceptable to wear your hair natural. I feel like Black women don’t really appreciate their real beauty.In the same way Chris told Solange how pretty she was after she cut her hair because she wasn’t ‘generic’ pretty anymore. All these women look GREAT, but kinda generic. Like they’re rocking their weaves in defiance or something. I agree, it would've been nice to see all of them come with their "natural" hair but again, they may have felt unpretty.

I agree with whomever runs

I agree with whomever runs this website. It is good that Chris did a documentary about hair, but it all seems to lead back to BLACK women...not women in general. There are a lot of generalizations/assumptions and I'm just tired of it. Black women -- and black women do this to each other -- are called "chickenheads" or "bald-headed" if you have short hair. And then if you put a weave in, then it's "weave-wearing bitches." I just don't want other folks ASSUMING that Black women need to put in hair to feel/look prettier. I haven't seen the movie yet, but it seems as though he didn't depict anyone with natural hair. I think that is very biased. How can you do a movie about hair, especially if it turns out to mock us, and not show the other side? There are plenty of sisters out here rockin' the natural and are PROUD of it!

I went natural in February

I went natural in February and I can say that when I'm at work all the white people complimented me all the time but my family and some of MY PEOPLE kept asking me when I was going to straighten my hair again. I am black and love my natural curls, now that it has grown out I have many choices to do with my hair. Now my family loves my hair and think i have "good hair" I hear that comment all the time. I just learned how to take care of my hair and it looks good! LOL

And people jumped all over

And people jumped all over Solange for cuttin off her hair and goin natural! People, good hair is strong ,healthy hair, whether you perm it, color it or weave it, if it's strong and healthy, it's good!

who is really natual anyway?

who is really natual anyway? personally i have wore my hair in braids, twist, and weaves before. I like wearing my own hair out though but I have not wore it unrelaxed and out since i was a child. I see people with long thick hair who seem to wear their hair in a ponytail their whole lives. To me that is worse than someone with a faboulous weave. And why would anyone be upset about the condition of someones hair underneath their weave. as long as it aint yours why should u care.

LB: Yes, everyone has

LB: Yes, everyone has issues, but when a BLACK child comes to her BLACK parent and very specifically refers to her hair by saying, just like Kris Rock’s daughter did, that she wants to be white or get a perm so she can have hair like white people or she thinks she is not pretty because she doesn’t, THEN THAT IS A HAIR ISSUE AND A SELF-ESTEEM ISSUE.I don’t hear stories about little white girls going to their parents saying they want to be black so they can have hair like black people. And they wouldnt tell us those stories. I'm sure they are out there tho in sum form or another. Black folks kill it in the skin "natural tan" game but u dont here us gettin props for that. They dont want us to know all that. Even tho they get 2 be all up in our biz....

You know they probably have little white girl ask why can't their hair poof out like ours, but i don't think they make such a big deal out of it. I remember when i was younger their were a few little white girls that asked their mother if they could wear their hair like ours, multiple pony tails and bows. Most white kids have a couple or wear their hair down. I think that everyone wants something that they don't have. However, the problem is that when the child is young parents are starting to create this distaste for natural hair at an earlier and earlier age.

I think some people are

I think some people are missing the point of this whole movie....Chris Rock isnt saying that weave's and extensions and such are BAD. Like some of you pointed out, his own WIFE wears extensions and stuff. He's just researching the thing that black folks have been talkin about for years (hell, decades even)...which is, WHAT IS GOOD HAIR? And do we weave-it-up nowadays because we've been brainwashed to think that the silky sleek hair is better than our own naturally kinky hair. I'm sure @ the end of the flick he's gonna bring it all into perspective as to why we are how we are. I dont think the movie is going to poke fun @ people who wear weaves.....he's just gonna have a good,funny time while he's on his journey to find out what's good hair. Lol! Basically, he made this movie for us black folk who can sit back and laugh about the whole 'notion' of good hair and how we act about it and what it means to us. But he also made it for the white folk who dont understand it.

Exactly what I was thinking

Exactly what I was thinking about Tamala...I like the CUT but the styling is WRONG. People wear wigs and weaves...doesn't mean they don't love themselves or their hair...get over it!
Chica's picture

I dont think the point of

I dont think the point of this movie is to say people shouldn't excercise their freedom of expression and alter their appearance when they choose to. Chris Rock is however highlighting the "crippling" effect of wearing a weave all the time. And that yes, black women are most guilty of this. Like someone already said, a weave,a wig or whatever should not be worn as crutches b/c you dont like how your natural hair looks and feels. That is called self hate. So many black women hate on themselves other black women and their children in this way, No, being natural doesn't make you more righteous but it does mean you have risen above the crippling effect of the weave. Some women in general wont leave their house without makeup. Metaphorically too many black women are choosing not to leave the house without their weaves...its a dependency issue. Perms are chemical poison for your hair period. It's been proven. If perms aren't helping our hair then why do so many people get defensive about it. If a perm added nutrients and helped you get "good hair" then ok. But seriously we as black women need to evaluate these "crippling" devices a little more at least with a weave you're not poisoning your hair but in most cases a good weave that "looks natural" requires a good perm. Double edged sword. I'm natural and when I dont feel like braiding my hair every night or what people want to call the hefty regime of taking care of natural hair, I'll put in some braid extensions which 1) can be worn without a perm 2) is not pulling out my hair as long as I take it out in (1-2 month) time frame that will preserve my hair line...

i am thinking that premiere

i am thinking that premiere was rite around the corner last nite & i missed it! i have a problem w/ all of our beauty secrets and hair care regimens being put out on blast like this and no other nationalities secrets are all out there for others to ponder. I'm concerned this movie is gonna make it seem like the average black woman spends $3000 a month when she only making 2000 or less to keep up her hair just so she will feel accepted in society/beautiful/desired. This is bull b/c the majority of us do not do this! I understand we might spend A LOT considering we don’t make up the majority of nationalities bringing in all the wealth but that clip of the movie I saw on Jay Leno last nite where Rock was in the salon and the beautician was saying that working ppl such as a woman sitting in the salon and getting her hair done were spending 3000 on a wig I’m like that is too much. We do not all do that and we are not all tryna be with the “white is rite” mentality. I do not like that perception being out there!

I hope that lil "At times, it

I hope that lil "At times, it also felt like black women, in particular, were being belittled and slapped in the face for how many of us choose to care for our hair." comment is not trying to allude to the thinking that people who have natural hair do not care for it. That sentence needs some clarifying.
feministabroad's picture

LOL - I agree, leave the kids

LOL - I agree, leave the kids hair alone!! I did hair for many years, and sometimes in L.A. I did my own weave and everyone thought it was my own hair. I must admit it was frikkin cute! But when I took it out, I didn't feel as pretty. I felt like I was not at my best without it. THAT WAS A PROBLEM. I got caught up in the notion that men liked long hair, my real hair was non worthy of rockin, and in reality I was all twisted. Not to mention all the money I spent and all the time I spent trying to look a certain way.... stop the madness ladies!! HEALTHY hair is GOOD hair. I have no problem with weaves. But take care of your hair underneath all the weave!! We do not have BAD hair. But we fry it, dye it, perm it, pull it, yank it, and bake it until it can't take anymore. Our hair is beautiful and so diverse in characteristics! I did a big chop in February and I had no idea my natural kinky spiral curls were so lovely :) Take care of your hair ladies!!

Everybody in some sort of way

Everybody in some sort of way alters the way they look, not just through their hair. For example.makeup, heels, etc. When you wear makeup you are creating a certain look that you want. Your eyes are not naturally smokey and your skin is not naturally golden and glowy and thats where bronzer and eyeshadow, etc come in. Your not as tall as you would like to be so you put on heels and get that feminine statuesqe look. Same goes for weave. You don't have long beautiful and flowy hair so you get it through weave. And the big deal is..... Just because you don't wear weave doesn't mean your "confident" within yourself, and vice versa because Im sure there are other things that you are altering and you don't even realize it.

Black women, we are the best

Black women, we are the best dancers in the world. what do i mean? I love how we dance around topics that we don't want to talk about. so sick of hearing... 1) white women and other women wear weaves too! SO WHAT we are talking about us not them. 2) "my real hair underneath is natural and too thick too manage, that's why I wear a weave and a wig." Do you know how ridiculous you sound saying that 3) It's just playing with different beauty routines. whatever makes you happy is how you should wear your hair. How come your real hair NEVER makes you happy? I never see it. I promise you, no man wants to put their hair in broken off thinned hair, nor do they want to touch your weave. You are soo limited in what you can do, do swimming, no sex in the rain, you basically suck Do and say what you want, but every single black woman on here should be offended that these chicks showed up to a movie about loving your own hair, with a WEAVE or WIG on. Come on sistas, stand for something. BE OFFENDED by that!

Ok Kanye! aka Zane Mac: RIGHT!! I remember I saw this baby about 18 months… couldnt even walk yet but she had kinky twists in her hair. All I could think about was.. why would a mother have her child, not even two yet, sit in chair/lap for 3 to 4 hours while people put extensions in her hair! I agree with you. Keep it at the basics like I had when I was a kid: Ponytails with knockers or cornrows! Then when you get older maybe 8 you can wear the back of your hair out (no matter how long or short it was). thats a crying shame. 18 months old?? thats got to be a form of child abuse

Poked In the Morning: i

Poked In the Morning: i think a grown woman can do whatever she wants, but I ahve an issue with little girls wearing 40 pounds of weave in their hair.I think that children should be rocking their own hair until they are in their teens.my ex boyfriends niece was an example. Such a pretty little girl, but her mother insisted on putting that awful weave in her hair in the form of braids. It was so heavy for her delicate scalp and she would always complain about it, not to mention that it made her look like a older woman and not an innocent little girl.when that garbage was out after her father fussed and hollered, everyone was amazed at how long and beautiful her own hair looked and how cute she was again. which made one wonder why put that mess in the first place.moral of the story, LEAVE THE CHILDREN’S HEADS ALONE RIGHT!! I remember I saw this baby about 18 months... couldnt even walk yet but she had kinky twists in her hair. All I could think about was.. why would a mother have her child, not even two yet, sit in chair/lap for 3 to 4 hours while people put extensions in her hair! I agree with you.

Dee: AND…so what?! The

Dee: AND…so what?! The question is, why are we so worried about what everyone else is doing? If you are wearing your hair, and that is all that should matter to you. There we go generalizing because there are plenty of black women still wearing their hair. I just don’t get the double standard. Other women “improve” themselves through botox, implants, extensions and they are just improving on what they got. Black women wear extensions, we got a slave complex. Chris Rock getting on TV saying you can’t run your fingers through a black woman’s hair is most idiotic thing I have ever heard. We need to stop basing stuff off like 10 people we know…versus the general population. I work in corporate and most of these women do NOT have weaves! Ok now lets all calm down. I'm just simply stating that IN THE MEDIA..(which is designed for us to enjoy and/or critique) there as been a tremendous decrease of diversity when it comes to black hair. And the IMAGES that bombard young girl black girls effects their self esteem and how they view themselves. AS A CULTURE AND COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE we should probably be more cautious..thats all I'm saying. Good Day!!
