This pic­ture has been cir­cu­lat­ing around the web and it is quite impres­sive. To be clear, it is pho­to­shopped. Michelle Oba­ma does not wear her curls out (not yet any­way…) although there are whis­pers that her hair is nat­ur­al but reg­u­lar­ly straight­ened. Ladies, thoughts?

She would look so cute if she real­ly had that hair style. Of course, the right would say its a black pow­er move so they can get the black vote for the upcom­ing elec­tions.


I don’t think the right cares about get­ting the black vote, actu­al­ly.


Ha! I was just about to send this to you! Com­pared with the orig­i­nal this looks so much hot­ter!


FIERCE (in the good way)!


I absolute­ly love it!


That looks awe­some on her, I wish she would go with that look


She should real­ly con­sid­er going nat­ur­al because she does have a very thick tex­ture of hair. She looks fab­u­lous on this pho­to very styl­ish and sophis­ti­cat­ed, I think she would be a beau­ti­ful nat­ur­al chi­ca!

OMG! love it! She looks amaz­ing!


Its a shame she does­nt rock her nat­ur­al hair she look gor­geous and they actu­al­ly have the means to care for their hair in its nat­ur­al state with­out a wrin­kle in the pock­et at a curly salon like quid ad and deva salon at $300 a vis­it and top of the line prod­ucts I hope she does it I can’t stop star­ing at this pic


It’s a great look!

Ficou mar­avil­hoso! Se fos­se ela ado­taria, rep­re­sen­ta a mul­her forte que ela é!


Awe­some! She looks great! I hope she rocks a nat­ur­al at least once soon!


could you imag­ine the first lady grow­ing out her heat straight­ened hair?? now that would be epic!


Fab­u­lous!! I bet she busts out some fab curls dur­ing hub­bys sec­ond term. By then, it don’t mat­ter what Amer­i­cans are ready for.


Ha Ha.…Damn Straight


Aw, I thought it was reaL! It is a gor­geous look on her!!!

Oh wow she looks hott!


I love it! At first, I thought it was real and was a bit sad­dened to find out it wasn’t. I’ve heard her styl­ist, John­ny Wright, say FLOTUS is a heat trained nat­ur­al and I hope that’s still true, if it works for her. I think she’ll come on over to the nat­u­ral­ly curly side one day. She’s fab, no mat­ter how she wears her hair.
