Bad Hair, directed, produced, and written by Justin Simien (Dear White People), follows Anna Bludso (Elle Lorraine), who works at a music video television network called Culture. Despite her great ideas and hard work ethic, Anna is overlooked in her office because her natural hair does not match the mainstream look required to be on television. To jump start her career, she decides to get a weave, which causes deadly consequences.
