Michelle Obama continues to kill her final White House looks from head to toe. She shocked onlookers with a bold new haircut on November 29 as she unveiled the 2016 holiday decorations.
Obama, 52, who had shoulder-length dark brown locks, turned to longtime stylist Johnny Wright for a blunt, center-parted bob. “🚨 NEW CUT ALERT 🚨 💇🏾,” he captioned a November 30 Instagram. The cut complemented her red, white and blue floral-printed A-line midi dress with a deep scoop neckline and a bow-tie detail on the waist.
Wright, who also works with Tamron Hall, most recently styled Obama’s hair in soft waves for her November 10 sit-down with Melania Trump, where the current first lady wore a Narciso Rodriguez dress in purple, a.k.a. the color of bipartisanship.
This year, Wright has helped FLOTUS achieve several head-turning looks, including her waves at the Democratic National Convention in July. “It’s so funny when certain things she does get more exposure [than others]. We’ve been doing this look all this year,” he told Elle at the time. “It hasn’t really changed, other than that it grew a little longer, but I think it’s effortless. I think it’s classic, right on the edge of fashion. She’s telling a few stories with that look.”
