After eight years of rocking her sleek trademark ‘do, Michelle Obama has finally embraced her natural hair in public.
The Internet caught fire this weekend when a photo of the former first lady’s natural curls surfaced. Twitter user “gif sommelier” got the ball rolling, gaining over 93,000 likes on Twitter with a photo of a headband- and ponytail-clad Michelle, the caption reading, “This is the picuture [sic] I have been waiting on for like 3 years. COME ON NATURAL.”
Michelle looks gorgeous (as always) and it’s wildly refreshing to see a public figure embracing her natural beauty.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter users tend to agree—Obama’s grand reveal is something many people have been anticipating for a long time.
Thank you, Michelle, for showing us it’s okay to be ourselves in every sense of the word, haters be damned. Cue “You’re Beautiful” (James Blunt edition).
