It's truly the end of an era, for both Lin-Manuel Miranda and his hair. July 9 marked Miranda's last performance in Hamilton, the outrageously popular Broadway musical he created and starred in (the show will go on though, with Miranda being replaced in the role of Alexander Hamilton by Javier Muñoz). To make it official, Miranda cut the hair he'd grown long for his role.
On Sunday, Miranda tweeted "Teach 'em how to say goodbye…" (lyrics from the show's song "One Last Time") and included a picture of his long hair, no longer on his head, left to fend for itself in the world, and to search for new Broadway musicals to star in.
So how does he look? A lot like himself without long hair, as this picture posted on Instagram by People reporter Dave Quinn shows.
His new, shorter hair allows the image on his Muhammad Ali shirt to shine through, as Quinn noted in his caption: "And Lin-Manuel Miranda has cut all his hair off. The greatest reppin' the greatest."
Miranda is going to be working on some new projects, including adapting his musical In The Heights for the big screen, and starring opposite Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns.
No word on what his ex-ponytail's next move is going to be, but for now it's signing autographs in front of the Richard Rodgers Theater.
