Before Hair Love won big at the 92nd Academy Awards, former NFL player Matthew A. Cherry told the powerful story in his New York Times best-selling children’s book of the same name. Now, five months after taking home the 2020 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film, HBO Max is continuing the storyline on the small screen with a 12-episode TV series called Young Love.

While we wait for an official release date to be announced, you can get caught up on the short film that started it all. Directed by Matthew himself, the 7-minute film tells the heartwarming story of a Black father learning how to style his young daughter’s hair for the first time.

With only a YouTube video tutorial as the main dialogue, viewers see Stephen stepping up for daughter Zuri while her mother, voiced by Issa Rae, is away. Hair Love focuses on the importance of embracing natural hair and it also puts a spotlight on a sweet father-daughter relationship.

How to Watch and Stream Hair Love:

Hair Love is available to watch for free on Sony Pictures Animation’s social media platforms. Whether you’re on your laptop or mobile device, you can start streaming it on the studio’s YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook pages.
