Michelle Obama Debuts Quintessential 'First Lady' Hair (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Michelle Obama may be a hip, of-the-moment FLOTUS. But the woman can still pull off the most quintessential hairstyle for a woman in her position: the voluminous, ultra-coifed first lady 'do.

FLOTUS attended a Toys for Tots event yesterday, sporting a blown-out, bouncy hairstyle that just screamed "first lady" -- a far cry from the sleek, modern bangs she debuted back in January, no? So while Michelle may have kicked off the year with trendy flat-ironed hair, it seems she's ending 2013 with a style that pays homage to the many hairspray-loving first ladies that came before her.

Think Mrs. O will keep this look for a while? Or is another "midlife crisis" looming?
