New York’s Broadway theatre fraternity turned out in force and in style for the recent
J Harrison Ghee, the first non-binary actor to ever win a Tony Award, had one of the
most standout (literally!) looks of the night, with a style that somewhat channelled Grace
Jones circa the 1980s. Ghee’s flat-top Afro had a side fringe and buzz-cut sides.
Stage and TV star Lea Michele of ‘Glee’ fame was a case book study of an elegant lob
that was flipped under and emanated from a deep side parting.
Actress, singer, dancer and Tony Award winner, LaChanze, probably had one of the
most eye-popping styles of the night. It comprised of sleek Afro puff buns arranged into a high ponytail, with embellishments dotted here and there.
Known to TV viewers from ‘Ghosts’ and ‘Devious Maids’, actress Rebecca Wisocky had
her signature auburn Pre-Raphelite curls coaxed gently back into an updo to highlight
her strong bone structure.
Rachel Brosnahan, star of ‘Mrs Maisel’, totally rocked a ballerina bun, with scraped back
hair and said bun perched high on the back of her head.
Actress, singer and entrepreneur, Betsy Wolfe, went the mermaid-core route, with long,
wavy flowing blonde locks over an Ariel-style gown.
‘West Side Story’ star and Oscar winner, Ariana DeBose, had long dark tresses
becomingly clipped back behind the ears and left to cascade down her back.
Award-winning actress, singer and dancer, Annaleigh Ashford, had her long blonde,
multi-toned hair in S-waves, tucked back behind one ear and flowing freely on the other
side of her face. (Report by Natasha Chisese and Joanna Sterkowicz)
