Leaving the Chicago crew behind, Gina Norris (Queen Latifah) is a long way from the Barbershop -- she now lives in Atlanta and is making a name for herself and her cutting-edge hairstyles at a posh Southern salon. But when her flamboyant, egotistical boss, Jorge (Kevin Bacon), takes it one criticism too far, she storms out of his salon to open a shop of her own, taking the shampoo girl (Alicia Silverstone) and a few key clients (Andie MacDowell, Mena Suvari) with her.

Gina risks it all to buy a rundown beauty shop and gets to work making it her own, inheriting an opinionated group of headstrong stylists (including Alfre Woodard, Golden Brooks, and Sherri Shepherd), a colorful clientele, and a sexy upstairs electrician (Djimon Hounsou). It's a rocky road to fulfilling her dreams -- and Jorge does his best to ruin her plans -- but you can't keep a good woman down... and you can't keep a shopful of outrageous women from speaking their minds!
