Style icon Michelle Obama is celebrating her birthday by adding a blunt textured bang right before inaugural festivities get under way.
Celebrity hairstylist George Gonzalez, who worked for Oprah and Harpo, and was recently chosen by Refinery29 as the 'Best Bang Trim' in Chicago, give his thoughts below.
"Michelle Obama's new bang is texturized which gives a softer piecey edge to the normal blunt style," reveals George Gonzalez of George the salon Chicago. "To achieve, ask your stylist to chip in with the tips of their shears followed by using texturizing scissors to soften the initial cut to finish. Hair types that are very coarse, thick and curly will have a harder time pulling this look off unless you want to take the time to use a blow dryer and flat iron to style. Ideally, straight or slightly wavy strands that are fine to normal will work best for this new 'Obama Bang'."
