Hair Mavens: Michelle Obama

You KNOW I had to do it.

Today’s hair maven is…..MICHELLE OBAMA!

Our (soon to be) First Lady is all business with her sleek looks –pulled off with both style and sophistication. Here’s an interview I found at bellasugar.com with Michelle’s stylist Frederic Fekkai:

Do you have any tips for recreating her signature hairstyle at home?

It’s pretty simple. The foundation of any hairstyle is the cut. That’s one thing we focus on doing very well here at Fekkai. With that, I am able to switch the hair into like maybe two, three different looks. We try not to give her too many different variations. People want to see her with the same style, especially when it comes to politics; there’s a lot of scrutiny when you’re in that arena.

I say go back to basics and just keep it simple. Sometimes I flat-iron her hair under, or I use a ceramic curling iron to flip it out at the ends a little bit. With a flat iron she’s going to be able to lock the moisture in the hair. Because she has to get her hair done so often, the flat iron is probably the best tool for her. For an updo, I might do some cascading curls according to how formal the event she’s attending is, but mostly I give her a clean sweep up.

Also, to keep her hair moisturized, I use the Shea Butter conditioner from Fekkai and Glossing Cream. It really keeps the hair moisturized. And Fekkai Coiff Anti-Frizz creme is excellent for that. It’s probably one of my favorite products.

Here are a few more looks from our faboulous First Lady!
