The film originally did not receive positive reviews from critics, with Joseph Gelmis from Newsday saying that "Hair is worth seeing for its razzle dazzle choreography by Twyla Tharp and the visual pyrotechnics of cameraman Miroslav Ondrícek. It's a big brassy musical. What the film lacks most is depth of character."

Derek Malcolm for the Guardian said: "The fact of the matter is that the under-25s who form the main part of most audiences nowadays are receiving it as a blinding revelation. Unfortunately, it's stale cheese to me, and I'm writing this review."

The film stars John Savage as Claude, Treat Williams as George, Beverly D'Angelo as Sheila, Annie Golden as Jeannie, and Dorsey Wright as Lafayette.
