I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are mine alone.
Earlier this week I shared insider details about Bad Hair Day while interviewing Executive Producer and Actress Leigh-Allyn Baker. Picking up, where I left off….I mentioned that the picture below of Laura Marano (Austin & Ally) plays a significant role in the film. Laura, who plays Monica in the film, is a teen tech genius who’s ready for the prom. Naturally, she has everything from the dress to accessories all planned out, but when she tests out different hairstyles the night before, she wakes up to find her hair a complete mess. And pieces of her hair are breaking off!!
She retraces her steps from the night before and realizes that these particular hair products have side effects when used together, causing her to have a really #BadHairDay. She’s a teen without her driver’s license and needs hair TLC asap – what’s a girl to do? When a stranger comes knocking on her door (Baker) looking for a particular jewelry piece that Monica just happens to own, they made a deal to help one another.
But nothing goes as planned – every twist and turn of the movie leaves you laughing. It’s a lighthearted comedy that everyone in the family can enjoy. As LA Baker mentions during her interview, this movie provides families (and girls in particular) an “empowering message.” Some of my favorite moments include tech and blog/social media lingo – because that’s so relatable to my job, and is refreshing to see those things shine in the movie. Want to know more? Head over to watch the Bad Hair Day trailer.
This family friendly original movie premieres on Disney Channel tonight at 8/7 central, so definitely tune in! Plus tweet along with the hashtag #BadHairDay while watching!
