Kid N' Play are well known for starting the high-top fade hairstyle that gained mass popularity in the late 1980s among African-American youth and hip-hop music fans. Kid gets his high top fade whacked off by Play's Blade Brown character who changes his hairstyle to dreadlock twists. Play (as Blade Brown character) is originally sporting a variation of the twists hairstyle at the beginning of the movie, but changes his hair to a variation of the high-top fade hairstyle for the rest of the film: he sports what is a backward version of the "high-top fade with a slope" hairstyle. This film marks the last film Kid 'N Play are seen with the high-top fade hairstyles that they made famous.
