I like it.

I think the white woman style was referring to her having straight relaxed hair instead of her natural afro textured hair. This is a deep debate. I say do whatever makes you feel pretty. Even though I admit, I would be jazzed if she came out with a fro one day.

For the white woman comment, I am not sure it was meant to come out as it comes across when we read it, but black women have been relaxing their hair for decades, it looks nice to them. I was born with hair follicles on my legs that grow hair I chose to shave it off, it makes my legs nice and smooth. I also color my hair because if I did not I would have much gray. Do you get my point? she likes it is why she has her hair relaxed, she is not trying to be white. If I curl my hair am I wearing a black womens hair do? C'mon now it's 2013 not 70 afro big hair days. I like all hair myself some look great in an afro and it did come back for a while and will return again someday I am sure.

Tryingloser- Don't judge? Do not say something for God that you do not fully understand. No one is going to say she is going to hell in a hand basket, or she is a bad wild woman here. This thread was simply asking if we like it ,we all have preferences and nothing is wrong with saying if we care for her hairdo or not. I am Christian, and I know people like you make others want to run and stray so be careful what you say. Having a preference or an opinion is much, much ,much different then judging someone. Please stop judging others for having opinions because no one here judged but you by acting as if we are doing wrong. Get it right before throwing in God's words. Thank you!

Yes I liked it.

To those who didn't understand the 'white woman' comment, I believe the original poster was just suggesting Ms. Obama try not relaxing or otherwise straightening her naturally curly (afro type) hair with chemical relaxers and/or very heat intense appliances and going for natural hair. I like Ms. Obama's hair but this is a good idea too and I think would be a positive body image step for other people with similar natural hair textures.

For the record I am 1/2 European & 1/2 Native and have straight but extremely coarse hair, I get it.

I'm with Clobberella on this one! (i.e. "What exactly is a white woman's hairdo?") Hey, it's 2013 people!!

1/22/13 12:18 P

@SimplyMe: Ok, curious here... What exactly is a "white woman's style?" And, what "natural" style is she supposed to have instead?

FTR: I think she looks great. emoticon

I do love it. She looks more youthful and less stern in the face. it softened her up. I think her hubby loves it as they were all lovely dovey. I love seeing "in love" couples, it gives me a glance of what others see from hubby and I. :)

I do like this hair style much better, she looks younger and fresh - she is so likeable and a very pretty lady indeed.

Cute, but being the First Black Lady, why wouldn't she have her hair "natural" instead of a white womans style.

1/22/13 11:24 A

it's cute, I like it. I liked the coats too, especially kids bright colored....

I really do. I think the off the face thing she had before was very unflattering and made her look much older.

1/22/13 10:48 A

She looks 10 years younger. The other style was a mom cut. Now she looks sophisticated.

No, I don't think it flatters her as much. This is not a judgment; it's an opinion.

I think she looks great both at the swearing in ceremonies and the Ball.

Was she wearing a wig at the swearing in as that bob looked all one length whereas at the Ball it was layered.

In any event, she continues to look great and she is a wonderful role model.

I like her new cut and love her! She's bright, strong and seems to have a lot of personality (see her last year on Biggest Loser?), and is a great role model for girls and young women (no matter what their political views)! :)

I also like the coats that M.O. and the two girls wore to the Inauguration!

At first I didn't but I think it's growing on me, the more I saw of her today the more I thought it made her look younger and very chic... She's just got so much style and it's without even trying she really is a great first lady and they really look so much in love....
