Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco, and Daphne Rubin-Vega Are the Holy Trinity of In the Heights

While it may seem like they’re combing for gossip, the women, played by Daphne Rubin-Vega, Dascha Polanco, and Stephanie Beatriz, say their business is far more than a café con leche klatch. “It’s about what we bring to the community,” says Polanco. “There’s nothing wrong with a little brush of the hair, and the confidence that comes with it.”

Dascha Polanco Has Returned To Us!
