"Gaines’ impeccable writing and the talent of the actresses more than exceeded expectations, generating a much needed conversation about hair and the division it causes within the Black community."
GREAT play! It was a very refreshing & realistic look into the world of black women and our hair. My hope is more black men as well as other cultures go out to see the play, so that they can see the struggles we as black women go through with our hair. I think it would help them to be a little more empathetic to what we face in this world, when it comes to our hair!
I just came home after seeing the play Hairitage produced by my loctician Niccole Gaines!!! If you ever get the opportunity to see it,please do so. You wont regret it. Its about the journey that Sistahs go through with their hair. I've session it twice and would go again if I'm able🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠
We made it part of our Girls Night fun! The play was so great and we loved it! It gave us a perfect excuse to get together AND we had a great convo about some of the lines in the play. It was funny that some of the things that were said, some of us had thought about each other and didn't even realize it. You should definitely go see this play. Make it a girls night!!

As a African-American female in the Military, I'm hoping this will bring the MUCH needed attention and amendment of the new regulations that are forcing us to conform. Not to mention the play is a MUST SEE!!! ~ Tonya
HAIR'ITAGE THE PLAY.....absolutely unlike anything you'd expect...Definitely a conversation starter riddled with poignant insights about Black woman and their hair. Crowning glory or badge of shame? Will we ever reach a unanimous decision? Go see this wonderfully written play by Niccole Gaines! I doubt you'll leave feeling the same you did when you arrived.... ~ Monica
