Furore over Michelle Obama’s new do

Michelle Obama Michelle Obama

Too many minutes to confess went into discussing Michelle Obama's sleek new hair do yesterday on the Grazia beauty desk. ‘Has she actually chopped it all off?' ‘No, surely it's just been pinned under.' ‘But she has been wearing it up for a while now. Maybe she's just finally gone for it.' ‘Remember, her hairdresser is a genius though.' OK, enough now. You get the picture. Turns out we weren't the only beauty obsessed ones analysing Mrs O's new hair. Within hours it even had its own name: the MOB, as in Michelle Obama Bob. In fact, the furious speculation prompted the White House to confirm the hair style once and for all. ‘It's an updo. Not haircut,' confirmed the First Lady's press secretary, Semonti Mustaphi yesterday. Got it. But does this experimentation mean Michelle O's thinking of having a crop? The Grazia office is divided over whether she should. Some like the trim but others think it's too 40-something generic for the fashion trendsetter. Ohh er! What about you? Should she go for the chop for real this time? [InStyle]
