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?

She looks ridiculous, as usual.

There is nothing that she could do to make her look attractive, so why bother!

Makes her look cheap, and it’s poorly done. Looks like she did it herself.

Is that you, Aunt Esther?

She does look like an older darker version of the blonde sister on That’s My 70’s show where Aston got his start. I would ask for a refund.

With all due respect, not so much………

Yeah, not a fan of this look. But more than the color, I think the style is just not that great. Not as soft and flowing like usual.

You need to put your money towards fixing your mouth, not anywhere else…

Looks like an older darker version of the older sister in that 70’s show that Ashton got his fame in. M. needs to ask for a refund from her hairdresser!!

She should have her jaw line fixed instead of not knowing what to do with her hair.She just doesn’t have the class or elegance to know how to act or carry out a look that is put together.Can you imagine Jackie Kennedy,or any woman of substance looking like that.She may not be attractive ,but, even Eleanor Roosevelt was a class act.Get a stylist, and the jaw set back 5 inches.her front teeth enter the room before she does.
