When you’re discussing famous sister duos of past and present, no list would be complete without the amazing Phylicia Rashad and Debbie Allen. But in case you’ve been living under a large rock somewhere in outer space for the past few decades, let us give you a quick refresher on why we’re featuring Phylicia and Debbis in this week’s #HairBattleThursday:

  • Phylicia played Clair Huxtable on the long-running sitcom The Cosby Show
  • Clair Huxtable!
  • In 2004, Phylicia was the first African-American woman to receive a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play
  • Acclaimed choreographer and dancer (and actress) Debbie Allen is the main reason why the television adaptation of Fame was so bomb. She’s also one of the masterminds behind A Different World. 
  • Between the two of them, they have more than 20 Emmy, Tony, Golden Globe, Satellite and NAACP Image awards and nominations, as well as honorary degrees at Brown University and Spelman and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We could go on and on, but we think you get the picture!
