When you think of a beauty salon, naturally you think of a proprietor who has a knack for solving things! At least that’s what Cut, Color, Murder is all about… and you know what, it’s kinda fun, too!
Cut, Color, Murder (2022) Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Film Review
Her sister and mother, and keeping busy at the salon is all Ali (Julie Gonzolo) needs. She sets a firm tone that her mother (Eva Tamargo) is no longer to set her up on blind dates. When her sister, Chelsea (Grace Beedie) is recruited to enter a local beauty pageant, Ali focuses her attention on Chelsea. After the tough and unkind pageant director is murdered, there’s more than one suspect, including Chelsea…
In spite of a rough start, Ali begins to investigate the murder in opposition to new Detective Kyle Chandler (Ryan McPartlin). New to town but not the job, Kyle isn’t sure what to make of Ali, but knows she does have a talent for observation; her accuracy is more than he’s comfortable with. Between the salon gang and Kyle, they just may uncover the surprising culprit.

One of the brand new mysteries of 2022, Cut, Color, Murder not only features McPartlin (Chuck) as its star, it’s also an idea he executive produces and an idea he pitched. The plot is lots of fun and comes off like one of those “cozy mysteries” that I love so well; normally produced by British companies. Between the funny conversations in the salon and Ali’s power of deduction, it’s cute. Plus, there’s the old school chief who, with plans to perhaps retire, brings Kyle in but of course, he and Ali already have an established friendship.
I’ll confess I did guess the mystery before we learn, but the script works in some little things. Whether it’s in the works or not, there is definitely the set up for a future sequel. If it’ll happen I don’t know, but we can hope so. At the end of credits rolling, Cut, Color, Murder is a good time. It’s full of likable characters and a fun set up sure to make anyone curious to know what will happen. Plus, the opening is pretty cute, too.
