Our FLOTUS has a new haircut .... with bangs! Personally, I loved her hair before - but this is just as fab. The bangs add a youthful element to her style, which I think she wears quite well. She does, after all, appear to own the fountain of youth.
Want to change your look? Be like Michelle and find your own personal translation in a trend. One of the beauty industry's hair predictions for 2013 was rounded bangs. I doubt Michelle necessarily chose to change her hair because of Allure's authority, but I do think our FLOTUS is a trendy lady - one who has proven her ability to be INSPIRED by the runway, and not mimic it.
For women (and men), hair is a big part of our identity. We describe our hair shortly after our skin tone. It's up there on our "how I look" line! With that being said, I don't have to explain to any woman the anxiety involved in cutting bangs -
"Will they be too short, too blunt, too thick?"
"Is this stylist listening to me?"
"My entire look will be ruined if my hairdresser screws this up!"
So why would Mrs. Obama take such a risk so close to inauguration - a day where her photos will literally go down in the history books?
I've concluded that the decision was for no other reason than to celebrate the commencement of her and Mr. Prez' second term in the White House - every girl wants to switch it up every now and then to keep her man intrigued, right? AND, of course, to keep our eyes spinning on the style she has in store for the next 4...
What do you think of Michelle Obama's new bangs?
