Growing up, there weren't many positive examples of women and girls wearing their natural hair. I always thought that straight hair was pretty hair. And for just about any special occasion, I headed to the hairstylist to get my hair silked out. However, these days, the celebration of curls has increased, and representation has grown, particularly in movies and television.
The short film Hair Love is an example of that. And now it's being rewarded in a major way.
