When it comes to beauty, former First Lady Michelle Obama is an icon regardless of whether she is wearing her hair straightened or rocking her natural curls.

Michelle Obama’s hair at the Essence Festival

At the Essence Fest in July, the former first lady proudly rocked her natural curls instead of her regular smooth, waves. The author made jaws drop with her shoulder-length curls that were highlighted with ombre golden-blonde ends.

The layered cuts which were styled Yene Damtew were the length of her mid-face to her shoulders and perfectly framed Michelle’s face.

Rocking natural again!

Proving that she is super comfortable with her natural hair, the ‘Becoming’ author proudly wore her curls to the Obama Foundation Summit yesterday.

This time, the golden-blonde highlights were faded, and Michelle’s original black hair took the front lead. Keeping things simple, the mother-of-two styled her backward with the curls almost reaching shoulder-length.

The natural look was a perfect combination with the off-shoulder dark green jumpsuit she wore. The former first lady discussed issues facing the black community and talked about her childhood in SouthSide, Chicago.

Fans were impressed by Michelle's courage and took to social media to praise her for it!

Michelle’s hairstylist is all for natural curls

With the former first lady embracing her natural curls nowadays, we have her hairstylist Yene Damtew to thank for that.

As revealed by Refinery 29, Yene encourages most of her customers to wear their natural hair more often and “embrace their curls.”

With the ridiculous beauty standards that society sets for women, Michele is playing her part in letting women know there is nothing wrong with embracing their natural looks. What a phenomenal woman!
