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?

African hair belongs to african face


our first lady is naurally gorgeous go Mrs,Obama


I love it – she looks so much younger too and more glam. Shows off her facial structure great in that pic.

PLEASE do it Michelle!!!! I guess maybe she can’t because it would take a while to get it from where it is now to where it is in that pic…but I still say do it!!

And yeah, Jackie wh..O?


If she is natural her hair is probably terribly heat damaged from all that straightening.

Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you just could do with a few % to drive the message house a bit, however instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.


I absolutely love this style. She looks Stunning!!!


WOW she looks gorgeous with this hair i absolutely prefer it!!! I didnt even think it was her

Ooo, I would LOVE to see the First Lady go natural! She’s stunning and fabulous either way, though. Am I the only one who thinks she gives Jackie O a run for her money?


I soooo love it


I wondered about this photo when I saw it on FB. I had a feeling there was a little photo magic going on. :o)

It looks good on her though.

I love this picture with our beautiful first lady, Michelle Obama with natural hair. I think she should go natural and wear her natural hair out.

Why are we praising a photoshopped picture of the First Lady?? We have assumptions of how she will look with naturally curly hair but you don’t know how fine/dense/wiry/coily HER hair is. We have to remember it is Nikki Mae’s hair which is not only thick but very dense. The first lady is refined, classy and beautiful regardless of hair texture. It is HER decision how she wears her hair.


Americans would riot; we’ve already witnessed what happened when her daughters wore their hair natural and braided.
