Must-watch: the adorable Oscar-winning short film “Hair Love”

We have rewatched the short animated film Hair Love in our office several times, and we’re so happy it won an Oscar on Sunday night.

Hair Love is a remarkable short film written and directed by former NFL player Matthew A. Cherry and is about a dad learning how to do his daughter’s hair for the first time, and a mom who has lost her hair.

In his Oscar acceptance speech, Cherry said that Hair Love was “born out of wanting to see more representation out of animation, but also wanting to normalise Black hair.”

Watch it here – it’s just delightful.
