Broadway star Denée Benton’s talent speaks for itself: At tomorrow night's Tony Awards she'll go up against living legends Patti LuPone and Bette Midler for best actress in a musical, thanks to her much-buzzed-about role in Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812. But as she breaks out on the Hollywood scene, her intricate corkscrew-curled hairstyles are garnering almost as much attention.

From Renaissance-inspired gold wire braids to artfully fastened kinky vertical buns, each lupita of Benton's hair looks is a bigger, bolder statement than the last. The Michelangelo behind her avant-garde coifs? That would be English-born hairstylist Vernon François. After taking notice of the styles François created for longtime client and hair chameleon Lupita Nyong’o, Benton tracked him down last year and they’ve been collaborating ever since.

Throngs of stars embracing their natural texture—including Solange, Kerry Washington, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Ruth Negga—have also flocked to François, who has made it his mission to recalibrate celebrity hair ideals as well as educate the masses on textured hair with his eponymous haircare line, which caters to curls of every shape, size, and density.

“There are these ideas of how textured hair should be worn on the red carpet, and I go out of my way to break these boundaries,” says François. “I see the strength and versatility of kinky and coily hair types.” With aid from his famous clientele—and at a time where more women than ever before are transitioning their lengths from chemically straightened to natural—François is inspiring a new generation to embrace their born-with-it texture.

As for what he's got in store for Benton's big night at the Tonys? Expect the unexpected: “Denée gets excited when I just put my hands in the air and come up with a style,” he says. Hair magic, indeed.
