Today in totally random hair news… Michelle Obama made an appearance on the trivia show Jeopardy back in March, and apparently the lighting angle had people freaking out and thinking she was bald… Peep the picture below:


After the First Lady’s appearance people took to Twitter to find out whether Michelle Obama had thinning hair or was rocking a new ‘do. Of course neither are true… It was just a combo of harsh lights and pulled back hair. The First Lady’s hair is still luscious…



What do you think ladies? Would you have been fooled by the picture?
