Take a listen to Blue’s adorable voice reading an excerpt of Hair Love.

Black ♛ Fact: Hair Love is expanding into a 12-episode animated 2-D series on HBO Max called Young Love.

Hair Love Synopsis From Penguin Random House:

Zuri’s hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it’s beautiful. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn. But he LOVES his Zuri, and he’ll do anything to make her — and her hair — happy.

Tender and empowering, Hair Love is an ode to loving your natural hair — and a celebration of daddies and daughters everywhere.

Peace, Love, & Beauty,
