I didn’t grow up with a father, so I find myself particularly touched emotionally when I see stories that depict healthy father-daughter relationships.
In response to the 2020 Oscar winning short film, Hair Love, I chose to recreate the faux hawk hairstyle in the film. Hair Love is an animated film about an African American father trying to do his daughter’s hair for the first time. The film was created by Mathew A. Cherry.
This Get Ready With Me (GRWM) video shares my reaction to the film while doing my hair and sharing my personal experience growing up without a father. This film is FANTASTIC and well deserving for the 2020 Oscar.
