EUR: What is your favorite hairstyle on a male or female?
Ta’Rhonda Jones: I’m a man bun lover. I love anyone who embraces their ethnicity, embrace their Afrocentrism. I love it when they embrace it that. Whether its locks, an afro, curls, bald…love it because you’re owning it and you’re comfortable in it.
Tiffany Haddish: I love the fade or one of those great Gatsby comb-overs! I also like the Bruce Lee look too, that’s cute to me. For a girl, I like ponytails or long unicorn hair that goes all the way past your booty and then you look like a little mermaid. I like that!
Deon Cole: I used to love the asymmetrical that woman used to have, that was really dope. I used to be like, “Oh! She got an asymmetrical!” I was a little hurt when it went out of style.
EUR: What can audiences expect differently in Barbershop 3: The Next Cut?
Malcolm D. Lee: It’s still funny…It’s poignant. It’s got something to say. Fans will decide, but in my opinion and the reason why I wanted to make the movie was that I wanted to make the funniest one of the series.
Tracy Oliver: Ice Cube, basically told us, ‘it’s on the south side of Chicago like the other two and we want to address gang violence.’ I was like, ‘wow, okay, how are we going to do that and make it funny?’ So it was a lot of work figuring out how to balance the two. I hope we did it well. It’s a dramedy…it’s got a lot of dramatic elements and comedic elements. What we were trying to do in the writing process, was make sure we found the comedy, even when it got too dramatic.
Deon Cole: We’re dealing with social issues going on in our communities, not just joking a lot, but actually trying to come up with solutions that others communities can take heed of.
