Synopsis

Leaving the Chicago crew behind, Gina Norris is a long way from the Barbershop--she now lives in Atlanta and is making a name for herself and her cutting-edge hairstyles at a posh Southern salon. But when her flamboyant, egotistical boss, Jorge, takes it one criticism too far, she storms out of his salon to open a shop of her own, taking the shampoo girl and a few key clients with her. Gina risks it all to buy a rundown beauty shop and gets to work making it on her own, inheriting an opinionated group of headstrong stylists, a colorful clientele, and a sexy upstairs electrician. It's a rocky road to fulfilling her dreams--and Jorge does his best to ruin her plans--but you can't keep a good woman down--and you can't keep a shopful of outrageous women from speaking their minds!

Miscellaneous Notes

Released in United States Spring March 30, 2005

Released in United States on Video August 23, 2005

A spinoff of the MGM franchise "Barbershop" (USA/2002) and it's upcoming sequel "Barbershop 2", both starring Ice Cube.

Queen Latifah made a cameo appearance in "Barbershop 2" to establish her character for the spinoff.

In early-November 2003, MGM filed suit against writer/director Mark Brown citing that they hold all rights to sequel and spinoff films based on their BARBERHSOP franchise, and that Brown, who is affiliated with said franchise broke his contract when he began developing his own BEAUTY SHOP film.

MGM is paying eight-figures against a cut of the gross to Queen Latifah. In addition, her record label will oversee music for the soundtrack.
