She’s celebrating 49 with a bang — er, bangs!
Birthday girl Michelle Obama joined Twitter on Thursday, and in her second-ever official Tweet (she had a campaign Twitter account last year) debuted a youthful new hairstyle: a straight, shoulder-skimming cut with bangs.
The First Lady, who for the past four years, has sported a slightly tousled, side-parted look sans fringe, went public with her ‘do just days before her husband’s Inauguration — a day we were already looking forward to, style-wise.
The photo of Obama’s haircut was taken Thursday as she met with the Inaugural citizen co-chair, David Hall, to talk about the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, which also happens to fall on Monday.
As if we weren’t excited enough to see the First Lady’s Inauguration Ball gown, we’ll also be interested to see how she styles her new cut come Monday, too.
