If You Haven’t Seen The Oscar-Winning Animated Short ‘Hair Love,’ Here It Is

One of the hardest things about Oscar season is how tricky it can be to see some of the films that get the nominations and prizes. The Oscars fall in that weird time after many of the featured movies have left theaters, but before they’re available to buy, rent, or stream. And short films? Those are almost never in theaters to begin with, so what’s an Oscar fan to do? Well, lucky for us, if you want to see the Oscar-winning short Hair Love in its entirety, you can do that (for free!) because the entire film is on YouTube.

Hair Love, which took home the award for Best Animated Short Film, was created by filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry, and tells the heartfelt story of an African American father learning — “with a little bit of work and a whole lot of love” — to do his daughter’s hair for the first time.

The truth is that there’s still a lot of ignorance and racism in the U.S. surrounding black hairstyles (and the school dress codes that sometimes unfairly target them), and films like Hair Love will help combat that. The short is absolutely touching, and its core message, which is about the love between a father and his daughter, will resonate with viewers from all kinds of families, no matter what their hair looks like.
