The incredibly talented, and GORGEOUS Leandra Gaston:
-dance captain for “Tina” on Broadway!
-training to be the dance caption for “Beautiful” on Broadway!
Wearing her mid-thigh braids today
She made a big chop, which turned out to be the turning point in her CAREER. Auditioned for Beautiful on Broadway 9 times, but the time her hair was chopped, SHE LANDED IT!
Advice for women who just made the big chop:
“Don’t be afraid of accessing freedom”
The true crown is what’s inside!
She is starting to grow her hair out for the first time since the chop, and she’s excited to let it do what IT WANTS!
To keep her braids from getting ruined she wraps them at night in a braiding cap, then she takes 2 bonnets over the top for extra protection.

She started with no hair, and her hair was growing out as the months went on during the run of “Tina” on Broadway, so the process grew!
Started with glued lace and moved on to flat twists and corn rows!
