Lin-Manuel Miranda wrapped his final performance of Hamilton on Saturday, and no sooner had the curtain hit the floor than he brandished scissors (or a sword, who knows) and chopped off his ponytail. Here it lies:
Here he is as a new man:
Miranda’s flowing hair had become something of a trademark feature, despite the fact that he only grew it out for the role:
His hair was still buzzed short when he first premiered material from his hip-hop musical—back then thought to just be a concept album he was calling The Hamilton Mixtape—for President Barack Obama and family at the White House Evening of Poetry, Music, and the Spoken Word in May 2009.
In general, his fans seem to be taking the change in stride:
Javier Muñoz, who will be replacing Miranda in the musical’s titular role, will wear a wig.
Baseball Person Derek Jeter exchanged vows with model Hannah Davis on Saturday. Their nuptials took place at a resort in Napa Valley, says Us Weekly:
Davis, 26, looked stunning in a high-neck gown custom-made by Vera Wang. She wore her hair in a bun with a veil and carried a bouquet of white flowers, while her groom, 42, wore a black suit. The ceremony began at 5 p.m. PT and lasted 20 minutes, a source tells Us Weekly.
“After the ceremony, they walked around holding hands and looking ecstatic,” the source tells Us.
The ceremony was limited to around 100 guests, though the list did include a few of Jeter’s former co-workers: Jorge Posada, Andruw Jones and Tino Martinez were in attendance, and Page Six reports that Davis invited “a few of her Sports Illustrated swimsuit model pals,” nbd.
Jeter proposed to Davis in October, offhandedly announcing the engagement via an essay about their pet dog. That didn’t seem to bother Davis though, because, as she revealed in an interview with Health, she’s chill:
“I’m chill. I just want it to be a fun day, not all the fuss. I don’t want to go overboard — it’s not about the place settings. I won’t get stressed out about that, ’cause I could just care less.”
“I think finding someone you truly don’t have to change for—not even a single part of you—makes you rise to the occasion.
