Forget the Dress, I Was All About Michelle Obama's Hair

By January 23, 2013

Follow me on:

A big hurrah was made over Michelle Obama's Jason Wu red dress, but what I couldn't take my eyes off was the First Lady's hair. I knew she'd gotten bangs for her 49th birthday and unveiled it on her new Twitter account last week, but I especially loved the way it looked for the Inaugural Ball -- curled with heavy bangs. Loved it.

Michelle Obama joins a long list of celebrities who have changed their look with bangs this year including Beyonce, Kim Kardashian (although I haven't actually seen her with her new bangs aside from her Twitter account) and Naomi Campbell. Even more celebrities and models are chopping their hair into long bobs that fall somewhere between the chin and the shoulders. I'm working on a photo gallery right now of these amazing cuts, so be on the lookout for them this week.

In the meantime, for more blunt bangs inspiration, check out my new gallery which is full of wonderful blunt bangs.

I think she looks terrible with the new hair-do and the red dress would have been fine for a night out on the town. Her wardrobe usually really looks just awful but the red dress was the only thing she’s ever worn that looked classy, however, lose the bangs.
