Gina, a widow and single mom, has moved to Atlanta so that her daughter Vanessa, a piano prodigy, can attend a performing arts school. Gina gets a job in a beauty shop run by the stuck up boss Jorge.

Although she mostly enjoys working at Jorge's, Gina's real dream is to own her own beauty shop.

One day, after Jorge insults her and takes credit for her work, Gina quits the salon and opens up her own beauty shop with her friend and ex -workmate from Jorge's Lynn.

Gina's beauty shop becomes well known as a place to get great hair and speak your mind. However when Gina's shop starts taking Jorge's clients, he gets very angry and decides to take revenge.

But Jorge underestimates the power that Gina and her fellow co- workers have. Despite challenges, Gina maintains grace, humor, and a magnanimous air that sees her through everything.

This movie is rated PG-13 on appeal for sexual material, language and brief drug references.
