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.

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?

I think her hair looks better darker and straighter, I don’t like the highlights.

im sorry, but she has GOT to be one of THE ugliest women i’ve ever seen… this is what a transvesite horse would look like if it were at all possible…

She is usually a very put together gal but this is a miss! It looks like a botched color at home from a box. She needs to be more polished.

Don’t care what her hair looks like. She still attractive and intelligent.
