Michelle Obama has debuted a new haircut with caramel colored highlights.
Michelle Obama showed off her brand new look yesterday while speaking at a film screening in Washington, DC.
The new face-framing hairdo is significantly less drastic and more flattering than the blunt bangs she had cut in January, which she admitted were “irritating” after a while.
Placed mostly around the edges of her face, the highlights are subtle and warm, in a soft honey color.

Reactions to the style have been mostly positive, with People.com comparing it to Olivia Pope’s hairstyle in ABC series Scandal.
And the beauty editor at New York Magazine suggested that the highlights are an indication that Michelle Obama is going grey, because lighter pigments work better than dark dye on greying hair.
The First Lady never fails to make waves with her fashion and hairstyle choices.
After initially debuting her bangs in January, Michelle Obama sent the social media world into a frenzy, even causing one fan to create a Twitter account called MichellesBangs in the hairstyle’s honor.
Today, Michelle Obama is accompanying Presiden Barack Obama to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington.

Beyonce stunned her fans yesterday as she unveiled a drastic new haircut.
Beyonce, who is known for her trademark honey colored tresses, has finally ditched her long weave for an edgier short pixie crop.
To launch her new look, Beyonce, 31, posted pictures to her Instagram account showing pictures of herself gazing in the mirror.
she can also be seen from behind feeling the back of her head where her long hair used to be.
Dressed in a short sleeve printed T-shirt and gilt choker, Beyonce shared another snap showing her pixie cut from the front – slightly combed back and parted the side, complete with dark roots.
Beyonce has been a diehard weave wearer for years – and will no doubt have thought long and hard about taking this new direction.
Comparisons to Rihanna – who has worn the shorter look on and off for some years now – will be inevitable.

Rihanna has also recently unveiled her shorter natural hair after removing her weave.
Beyonce has rarely sported anything other than big, bouffant looks in since blasting onto the music scene with Destiny’s Child.
And her new look could – like Halle Berry’s short crop from film Boomerang – see a rush to hair salons for fans eager to copy her new look.
Beyonce’s wig collection was once estimated to be worth $1 million.
The wigs are mostly handcrafted and custom made for the star out of real human hair, and a single wig is reportedly worth $10,000 each.
It’s unclear if she will keep her new look for long, but the singer donates her worn pieces to an organization that provides wigs for chemotherapy patients, so they should expect something of a bonanza shortly.
Beyonce still had her longer locks as she performed her last show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Monday.
Working up a sweat beforehand, she said: “I biked to Barclays for my last show in Brooklyn!”
Sharing photos to prove she was truthful, Beyonce made a collage showcasing her make-up free face hidden beneath a white trilby hat and aviator shades.
