The Hair Tales,’ which was being nicknamed as “the vagina monologues for black hair”, is a collection of stories from Black women in Hollywood about their feelings, fears and emotions surrounding their hair. It gives viewers a front row ticket to black women’s love hate relationship with their tresses with such beautiful heavy hitters as Mara Brock Akil, Tasha Smith, and Emmy Award-winning actress Regina King — they all share their uncut hair stories with the world.
