The other day I pleaded with the women of the world to open their own Michelle Duggar beauty franchise on top of their heads by reaching for the pink sponge curlers, the jumbo iron, a tub of Queen Helene hair gel and any can of hairspray with a toxic warning label on it. The reigning first lady of Broadway and Corky’s mom Patti LuPone heard my pleas (or she’s way ahead of all of us and planned this looks weeks ago) and walked the red carpet at last night’s NYC screening of Company with her face framed with a flowing stream of luscious perfection.
Ms. LuPone’s version is a little more demure and softer than Michelle’s. It’s like a gentle whisper of Michelle Duggar’s exquisite mane, but she’s on the right track. Next time, Ms. LuPone should dip her head in a bowl of gel as soon as she gets out of the shower and scrunch her curls in front of a heating vent until her hair starts to sound like a ho sitting on a bag of corn chips. Then she should keep the curling iron on her bangs until the smoke wafting from them sets off the alarm and the fire department shows up. That’s how you know you’re on the right side of beauty.
And with that, I can finally say that the Michelle Duggar hair revolution has officially begun!
Here’s Patti’s head carrying the flaming torch of glamour last night with Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Hendricks, Anika Noni Rose and the rest of the cast.
