Michelle Obama’s hair was simply breathtaking at last week’s American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Gala.  It wasn’t the dancers that swept me off my feet but Michelle Obama’s classy look. This style is perfect for day or night. The volume and over-exaggerated bang add flair and glamour to this otherwise simple style.  Achieving the look is quick and easy with a few simple tips.  

StyleBell’s expert Roslyn Baker shares tips on how to recreate Michelle Obama’s elegant ‘do in a few short steps: 
STEP 1.  Start with smooth, sleek and straight foundation by relaxing the hair with the Soft & Beautiful No-Lye Conditioning Relaxer. For fine hair, avoid relaxing the crown area for maximum fullness. Apply the Soft & Beautiful StyleProtect Nighttime Dry Wrap Mousse to the crown area of hair as you begin to blow-dry. 
STEP 2.  Once dry, apply a small amount of Soft & Beautiful StyleProtect Sculpting Gel around the hairline and smooth with a bristle brush.
STEP 4. Section off the crown area.  Spray the Soft & Beautiful StyleProtect Spritz on a small sub-section of hair. Using a large barrel curling iron, lift the hair up for maximum volume.  Repeat this process until the crown area is completed. For the remaining back and side, use a flat iron or large barrel iron to smooth and turn the hair under.  For maximum volume, lift the hair away and up from the scalp with the irons and gently smooth them down hair line.
STEP 5. The soft, side swept bangs are glamorous and sexy.  Spray the bang area lightly with the Soft & Beautiful StyleProtect Spritz. Using the large barrel irons or flat iron curl hair over to the side. Use clips to hold the bangs in place and spritz once more. Use a large tooth comb to comb the hair into place.  For added shine, spray the hair with Soft & Beautiful Oil Sheen Spray.
