Editorial Reviews

They call it the "Hair Olympics." In Moscow, more than 40 countries compete at the International HairWorld Championships in timed tests of hairstyling skill. The competition is a spectacle - vivid sculptures of hair adorn stunning models in killer heels as the stylists fight for the judges' attention. This program follows Team USA as they embark on months of rigorous training until finally their dreams unfold on the competition floor.

"Hair World" is a fascinating glimpse into the life of competitive hairstyling. This documentary tracks the progress of the US team as it heads (so to speak) to Moscow. The competitors come from diverse backgrounds. Some are artsy, others are working class. All want to dazzle and impress. Their hairstylings are like nothing you see in daily life (but they are the sort perfect for the runway)

It's a real-life "Ugly Betty." At one point, the hair salon is damaged by a flood. The competitors have creative ways of dealing with stress. They talk about their art. This documentary is a delightful combination of "Ugly Betty" with its story of ordinary folks going into the realm of haute couture,with the affection of a Christopher Guest mockumentary,and the campiness of Heidi Klum's Project Runway. As Tim Gunn says,"Carry on."
