Michelle Obama's New, Highlighted Do: You've Gotta See It

Michelle Obama highlights, hairstylesOlivier Douliery/Startraks

Paging Kerry Washington! We think Michelle Obama may be a Scandal fan, because she was just spotted rocking the star’s signature sun-kissed curls at a film screening in Washington, D.C. yesterday. And as with any FLOTUS hair change, you know we’ve got to discuss.

RELATED PHOTOS: See major star hair makeovers here!

After ditching the bangs that she eventually called “a little irritating” and “a midlife crisis,” it appears that the First Lady was looking to keep her hairstyle spicy — but perhaps not as high-maintenance.

Which is how she ended up with this new look: A curled bob with her mid-length bangs swept to the side, highlighted with coppery-blonde and reddish tones throughout. It’s sort of sassy and serious all at the same time — yet another reason why we think she may be taking style cues from Scandal‘s Olivia Pope.

Tell us: What do you think of the First Lady’s new look?

Not a fan, looks very 70’s. Women with dark hair should not do this type of highlights gives off an orange tint. She’s an attractive lady but leave the hair natural.

Not a good look! Kerry Washington…I think not.

I like the first lady with natural hair color and don’t like the orange streaks a la Oliva Pope all the much.

Kari on

It’s the hair…it’s the outfit…it’s all a mess.
