JHERI CURL (Documentary - Short)

Writer, Director

The Jheri Curl was one of the most iconic hairstyles of the 80s/90s. The greased-down, wet and shiny look defined what it meant to be ‘sexy’ - ultimately revolutionizing urban culture. For the first time, African-American men felt confident in growing out their hair and the look became a staple of hip-hop music. Through the perspective of LA artist G Perico, this Spotify short doc focuses on the history and lasting impact of the hairstyle.
