Making matters worse, Dre’s father, Cedric, re-enters her life. As Novelette tries to untangle the webs in her personal life, she still has a shop to run and a family to look over. Her sister Joy makes her return to Letty’s Salon and tries to find her ‘own’ place within the shop. Starr, a budding hairstylist, continues her journey to find her roots, which includes dating her first black man. The shop also has a new man in town, Malik, a teen who is rough around the edges, but has a good heart.
