Our First Lady Is TOO Fly! (How To Get Michelle Obama’s Bob)

I LOVE First Lady Michelle Obama’s style! Especially her super cute bob she’s been rocking for the past few months. Here she is yesterday at the Governor’s Ball talent preview looking super fabulous! Now I’m not sure how her stylist, Johnny Wright, styled her hair, but I can give you a few pointers on how you can achieve this style:

  1. Of course, in order to achieve the style, you must have the cut. After that you are good to go! (Get a professional stylist to cut your hair, no botched home jobs please! LOL 🙂 )
  2. After shampooing and conditioning your hair, towel blot and comb properly with a paddle brush or wide tooth comb. Check out my “How To Comb Your Hair” tip, here. (Applying a great leave in conditioner like Nouritress or Jane Carter helps make the comb down process easier)
  3. If you have a hooded dryer, sit under it for about 20-30mins, or until the hair is dry.
  4. Before styling, apply a light oil and protective heat spray like CHI’s Silk Infusion and Iron Guard.
  5. You can section your hair in 4-8 sections, which ever works best for you. In each section, make little sub-sections and work your way up each section with your flat iron. Flat iron your hair from root to ends by slighty bending the flat iron to create a slightly straight look.
  6. Go through each section repeating the previous step until the entire head is styled.
  7. Finish off with a light holding spray like Paul Mitchell’s Soft Spray.
  8. Comb and style until it looks picture perfect!
