Since emerging in the style spotlight during the 2008 Presidential election, First Lady Michelle Obama has uplifted the careers of bright designers such as Jason Wu, whose Inaugural Ball 2009 dress almost broke Twitter, and even brought pearls back in style. In celebration of her 49th birthday, the First Lady’s stylist took the shears to her hair and cut some darling, rounded bangs. News of her bangs have spanned national headlines with an outpouring of affirmation for the cut.
Bangs are definitely in season. Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union and Freida Pinto have been spotted donning bangs lately.
