Gina Norris (Queen Latifah) is a widowed hairstylist who has moved from Chicago to Atlanta so her daughter, Vanessa (Paige Hurd) can attend a private music school. She's made a name for herself as a stylist, but after her self-centered boss, Jorge (Bacon), berates her work, she leaves and sets up her own shop, purchasing a run-down salon.
She hires a range of stylists, including her rebellious sister-in-law, Darnelle (Keshia Knight Pulliam). The shop gets a wide range of clients, including wives of professional athletes and several wealthy white women. She also hires Joe (Hounsou), an electrician from Africa who's also skilled on the piano. Because Jorge is jealous that his shop is losing clients to Gina's, he hires a health inspector to find various ways to shut down Gina's business. Tragedy strikes when the shop gets destroyed and vandalized. When Willie (Lil' JJ) finds the health inspector and Gina's old boss on camera talking business he shows Gina the tape of the two. Later on that night, Gina goes to her old salon and tells him that she knows about his "little secret" and has a couple of guys cut off his hair.
Later on, a radio talk show host (whom they don't recognize as their favorite host to listen to every morning, DJ Helen) comes to the shop in desperation for a touch up and later gives Gina's Beauty shop a shout out live on the air.
