Michelle Obama got bangs (and I heartily approve—do you?)

Bangs! Everyone’s getting them. Kate Middleton, Karlie Kloss, Kerry Washington… and now the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.

Here’s a refresher pic of her previous hairstyle:

It’s a little… TV anchorwoman. But what am I going to say? She’s the first lady! This kind of hairdo (along with skirt suits and double strands of pearls) sort of goes with the territory. It’s professional and it’s classy… but it sure ain’t trendy.

Which is why her new look is a total shocker! Here’s the big reveal:

Thick, eyebrow-skimming, face-framing bangs. And long layers in the rest of her hair, which is looking super-shiny, I might add.

I really wish I could find a front-on pic, but from what I see so far it looks really good, right? As a beauty person I am SO endorsing this—the fringe just makes her look cooler, fresher, edgier. And younger, because you know what they say: bangs are better than Botox! Michelle actually just turned 49 yesterday, and I think her new cut has totally turned back the clock.

Pro beauty tip: if you’re a lady of a certain age and you want a younger look that’s NOT from injectables, bangs are totes the way to go.

What say you?

Are you a fan of Michelle’s new look?
Or do you think her “before” style was more appropriate?
Are all of these famous people inspiring you to get bangs too? (For me this is The Big Beauty Question that I’m always in turmoil over. To chop or not to chop!)

Pretty. I like the bangs because they hide her eyebrows.

Her eyebrows are SO BAD. Why are her people letting that happen? Doesn’t she have an esthetician?! Bloody hell…

I am loving the bangs!! I’ve wanted bangs like that all my life but have been too afraid to go for the chop. She looks amazing – wish I could import the entire Obama family to the UK :-)

She looks amazing! The bangs cut a good 10 years off her age!

Looks like a wig. Not complimentary to her features. she was prettier before. Wig, weave-look….not very classy.

Where Michelle Obama got the hair extensions for her new look? Anybody can see that is not her hair for sure!!! Too sleek , too shinny, too straight.. How much did she pay for the fake hair?

It looks like a wig, not a hairdo! Is everything about this woman fake? Call it what it is!
