Hair è un film drammatico musicale statunitense del 1979, diretto da Miloš Forman, basato sull’omonimo musical di Broadway, scritto e diretto dagli sceneggiatori e compositori Gerome Ragni e James Rado.
Pur ispirandosi al musical teatrale ed essendo stato scritto dagli stessi autori, il film si differenzia profondamente dal lavoro rappresentato a Broadway, non solo nella trama ma anche nella sequenza dei brani musicali.
Fu presentato fuori concorso al 32º Festival di Cannes.
