Gina Norris (Queen Latifah) is a long way from the Barbershop – now she's in Atlanta making a name for herself at a posh Southern salon with her cutting-edge hairstyles. But when her flamboyant, egotistical boss (Bacon) takes it one criticism too far, she leaves his salon to open a shop of her own, taking the shampoo girl (Silverstone) and a few key clients (MacDowell, Suvari) with her. Gina buys a rundown salon and inherits an opinionated group of headstrong stylists (including Woodard), a colorful clientele, and a sexy upstairs neighbor (Hounsou). It's a rocky road to fulfilling her dreams, but you can't keep a good woman down…and you can't keep a shopful of outrageous women from speaking their minds!
