About the Book



It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters, from former NFL wide receiver Cherry and "New York Times"-bestselling illustrator Harrison. Full color.



Book Synopsis



A New York Times Bestseller and tie-in to Academy-Award Winning Short Film Hair Love

I love that Hair Love is highlighting the relationship between a Black father and daughter. Matthew leads the ranks of new creatives who are telling unique stories of the Black experience. We need this.
- Jordan Peele, Actor & Filmmaker

It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters, from Academy-Award winning director and former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry and New York Times bestselling illustrator Vashti Harrison.

Zuri's hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it's beautiful. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn. But he LOVES his Zuri, and he'll do anything to make her -- and her hair -- happy.

Tender and empowering, Hair Love is an ode to loving your natural hair -- and a celebration of daddies and daughters everywhere. A perfect gift for special occasions including Father's Day, birthdays, baby showers, and more!

Didn't make sense to my child. She liked her hair less because she perceived the main character as never being satisfied with her hair the way it is.

My little sister doesn’t like her hair and thinks she’s the only one with her type of hair (her school doesn’t have much diversity) and when I got her this book she started liking her hair :)

I love this book. The ending is slightly different from the short film, which a real subject, but a bit heavy for small kids. My 2 year old daughter asks me to read it on repeat.

The story is great, the book itself had bubbles on the inside cover where the paper is glued to the cover and the corners of the book were smashed, odd to have a poor quality hardcover book but besides that my daughter loves it.
