The First Lady's Hairstylist Starts Apprenticeship Progam

Michelle Obama's Chicago hairstylist, Rahni Flowers, has been styling the now First Lady for 25 years. During her time as First Lady, though, she's going to have to find someone new to do her hair - Flowers ain't moving!

He says, "It would not be a very pragmatic thing to fly me back and forth to Washington D.C. in light of the economic climate in the United States."

So what's Michelle gonna do????

"What we agreed to do is I would help train people who live in D.C. to maintain her look and her schedule — that would be a lot better," says Flowers.

Rahni also mentioned that the most important thing for Michelle is creating "a look that will work with her lifestyle."

What do U think of Michelle's hair?

Should she keep her current stylist's influence or is it time for a new 'do?

    YAWN.



  2. 2

    Uhhh ok



  3. 3

    She should be willing to try new hair styles, she is pretty now matter what.



  4. 4

    And this is news how?



  5. 5

    It's good. Not too short but long enough.



  6. 6

    first!
    time for a new do



  7. 7

    Yep, this is a crisis situation for sure, Perez. I mean really, a hair stylist article?? C'mon dude, find something worthwhile, please.



  8. 8

    Some woman are like that..they get a sylist and stay with them for YEARS and will not change. So having her train a new stylist will prolly be all that Mrs Obama will deal with.



  9. 9



  10. 10

    I WISH SHE WOULD JUST BE LIKE EVERY OTHER BLACK WOMAN AND GET A WEAVE!!! I WANT HER TO HAVE AWESOME HAIR, NOT OLD LADY HAIR



  11. 11

    Uhhh…who cares? Just get to fixing this country please.

    Although Ty Inc. insisted the dolls were not intended to depict Malia and Sasha, a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama had protested that the dolls were inappropriately using "young, private citizens for marketing purposes."

    The dolls have been renamed "Marvelous Mariah" and "Sweet Sydney," the Associated Press reported Tuesday.



  13. 13

    She needs a new haircut and some styling. That hair is boooooooring!



  14. 14

    It's well, hair.
    No big wup.



  15. 15

    About 3/4 of your average turd is made of water. Of course, this value is highly variable - the water content of diarrhea is much higher, and the amount of water in poop that has been retained (voluntarily or otherwise) is lower. Water is absorbed out of fecal material as it passes through the intestine, so the longer a turd resides inside before emerging, the drier it will be.



  16. 16

    frumpy hair.
    she needs something new.



  17. 17

    It great that she will let someone else style her hair. Its hard to find a good stylist that you trust, so good luck



  18. 18

    What is with you these days Perez, who the hell cares about hair weaves?



  19. 19

    no comment



  20. 20

    who cares.

    i don't care what she looks like, but i am interested in the future and what she and her husband can do for the country



  21. 21

    It is time for change!!!! I love Michelle, but she needs a softer, prettier style. Why do they need to train a stylist in DC!? Jeez, Flowers is arrogant!!

  22. buck says – reply to this


    22

    i can see now why so many black guys are hitting on white women.



  23. 23

    I think she should try something new. A little less uptight, less soccer mom, more stylish. This looks like an easy 'do to maintain, but it doesn't enhance her beauty.



  24. 24

    Her hair is boring, but it is appropriate and professional. No need for her to go crazy, she's not a popstar.

  25. Caro says – reply to this


    25

    It didn't take long for the Obamas to get big headed…



  26. 26

    Re: Mrs Harry Beaver Poonani – not sure how this is news either.



  27. 27

    I think she looks lovely.



  28. 28

    She needs a new stylist..surely some A list hairdresser will step up.



  29. 29

    I go to Rahni's salon, Van Cleef, and have seen Michelle there several times. I think her hair always looks great and Rahni is a very talented stylist. It will be hard to find anyone better;)



  30. 30

    she needs a new face I say…..



  31. 31

    What's there to train? Tell them what color dye you use, and which styling products, and after that it just looks like maybe a few hot rollers and you're done. There's not much to that hairstyle.

  32. ~E~ says – reply to this


    32

    I was worried about the economy until I read this.



  33. 33

    Come On, she is the first lady, loads of hairdressers must be dying to get their hands on her hair!! She'll have no trouble finding a great one =]

    Her hair always looks lovely :)

    Michelle Obama is so goofy looking, no hair style can improve her looks.
    .
    Rahni Flowers should just make her a wig, and then Michelle Obama can just shave her head each morning before placing the wig on her inflated head
    .
    Are there any good plastic surgeons in D.C. to work on Michelle Obama's face?



  35. 35

    Here hair is ugly. Having Flowers "train" a stylist is DC is an insult. Anyone could do better that that!



  36. 36

    Let's start with the facts: This woman is plain ugly. Her jaw is to big, her attitude is disgusting.- Having said that, I will go on about the hair.

    Dear Michele: You are a black woman, proud to be black, (you even hate whites according to your University paper,) so I don't fucking understand why do you use the iron to create the illusion of "straight hair"…..Were is the "black power"? Be black, curly pasita hair…Be proud…Stop the illusion…BLACKS DO NOT HAVE STRAIGHT HAIR.

    Shit this woman is ugly!



  37. 37

    She needs a new hair do It's UGLY



  38. 38

    Oh my, she is beyond fug. Hair really is irrelevant…the face is just horrible. T R A N N Y.



  39. 39

    Re: mama of two – Perez likes to post things that are irrevelant apparently.



  40. 40

    :) Doesnt MONICA LEWINSKI do hair? :)



  41. 41

    Re: ~E~ – I'm sure all the guys in Iraq are relieved to know that she's found a viable solution to the problem of losing her hairdresser as well. Thank god, now they can get back to the business of not getting their nuts blown up.



  42. 42

    THAT LADY NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE SHE HAS EVER WORKED WITH IN THE PAST! ANS START FRESH! VERY FREASH!!! WAIT! GIVE HER 2 YEARS AND SHE WILL LOOK LIKE A WHOLE NEW PERSON!!! HER LOOK IS SO DATED!!! VERY BUSY HOUSE WIFE LOOK! LOL



  43. 43

    how do you train a hairstylist?



  44. 44

    HELL-TO-THE-NO WITH THAT HAIR!!!
    SHE NEEDS TO LEARN HOW TO WALK LIKE A LADY INSTEAD OF TWEEDLE DUM AND TWEEDLE DEE
    GET HOMEGIRL A STYLIST



  45. 45

    Re: Mrs Harry Beaver Poonani – he is a day late and a dollar short every post. oh and he makes shit up. welcome my royal friend to one shitteous site!



  46. 46

    Ok, white folks shouldnt weigh in on this one….sorry bunnies!! But when a BLACK woman finds a good stylist to beat her wig down the way she likes it, its difficult to leave. Heaven forbid she has to move to another city just as Michelle has had to, its tough to let anybody put their grubby hands in your hair. Just sayin'….



  47. 47

    NEW DO!!! Something more elegant PLEASE!



  48. 48

    this style is all wrong…….

    the front up do is not working……..
    bring it down at the front.
    she's got a great face .



  49. 49

    Re: DrinkYourKoolaid – Think I'll drink some water.



  50. 50

    New do, for sure - it's not like the stylists in DC suck or anything. She could look a LOT better.



  51. 51

    it's definitely time for a new 'do!



  52. 52

    Let me quote her husband, our president. IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE!!!!!!



  53. 53

    I love Michelle, but I hate her hair!! HATE!! She never does a thing with it! Even during the inaugural ball! For heaven's sake, use a hair clip or some bobby pins… something!! Change it up!

  54. buck says – reply to this


    54

    maybe the 'hope' and 'change' obama was talking about is michelle's hair.



  55. 55

    new style !



  56. 56

    She definitely doesn't look bad, she's very pretty, but I think it's time for an updated look.



  57. 57

    BORING. who cares?

  58. LL926 says – reply to this


    58

    Her hair has been permed for years and it still looks healthy. If you've ever had a bad stylist experience, especially when it comes to relaxers and shit, then it's understandable why finding and keeping a stylist would be so important. that said, her style is boring. A longer length and a side-swept bang would be pretty.



  59. 59

    Seriously? How the - cares about her hair?



  60. 60

    Re: BBBoricua loves Angels & Demons… – SHE SHOULD GET A LADY GA GA HAIR STYLE.



  61. 61

    Maybe Obama can put some billions for her hair in the "stimulas" package…cause everyone else and their brother is getting money for useless crap that will do nothing to create jobs and help get the economy on track. How, how did this man and this beast of a wife get into the White House? However bad it is, well, it is gonna get a whole lot worse, unless you are on the gov't dole…then you should be fine.



  62. 62

    She needs a new hair style badly. Time to shorten up the back and get rid of the mullet look.



  63. 63

    New hair. She doesn't have "style". Did you fail to mention that your quotes came from his interview with Rachael Ray???? You say you hate her yet you steal her interview quotes.



  64. 64

    I honestly couldn't care less…

    Like I give a poop.



  65. 65

    is this where i come in with a geri curl joke?



  66. 66

    Re: COCACOLA

    Actually, there are a lot of Blacks that have naturally straight hair.



  67. 67

    honestly…her do aint the problem…its the sour assed look she always has. like she is just perpetually pissed off about something; her face so often is scrunched and skowling…but then again, mr.pres is always smiling so i guess its an even trade.



  68. 68

    her hair is I'm a reg black lady that just got my hair permed, nothing special, mean but true ;)



  69. 69

    Michelle Obama wears her hair the same way Condi Rice did. In fact, i've seen some pictures of her where she looks just like Rice. There's nothing unique about the way Michelle wears her hair; not even sure why she needs someone to style it. Looks like something she could do herself, but she seems like she's the kind of woman who likes to be pampered.



  70. 70

    She's such a joke! Soooooo full of herself! I hope she don't get no afro sheen on her new *Pottery Barn* furniture :P



  71. 71

    love her but i don't love her hair at all. it's kind of a hot mess! i don't understand why first ladies or women in power always have this strange matronly style. michelle would look adorable with a slightly shorter bob and some chic bangs. she needs to switch it up and turn it out!



  72. 72

    Looks like we are soon to add a John Edwards style hair cut cost scandal to the burgeioning tax cheat scandal coming out of the Obama administration. See Truth According To T o m



  73. 73

    There isnt a lot you can do with nappy black wire hair.



  74. 74

    Might I suggest a bag over her head with a wig from the Tyra Banks collection on top. STOP THE FUGLY.



  75. 75

    I don't think a change in her hair is going to help that tranny looking face of hers..eww.



  76. 76

    SHE THE FUGLIEST FIRST LADY EVER, SHE NEEDS A LOT MORE HELP THAN JUST HER HAIR, THAT FACE IS SCARY!



  77. 77

    She can afford a Better (Wig) Now ,,, and she will get it you can be sure?



  78. 78

    she should grow some dreadlocks



  79. 79

    Re: uncle eldon – >>> The word you should have used was Face Is (EVIL) listen to her talk about Devil White Folks and you will understand the true meaning of the word RACIST. YOUR COMMENTS ARE ALWAYS GREAT..



  80. 80

    Re: Rude Dude – Oh, really. Like who?



  81. 81

    A new dew would be nice. Something more stylish. Short in the back, long in the front.



  82. 82

    ummmmmm okay yawn no one cares bout her hair



  83. 83

    I don't like her hair in this pic, too high at the top and flat on the sides. Not flattering to her face shape. New hairstylists and wardrobe wouldn't hurt. I like her casual style, but a layered top during a speech is a little too casual.

  84. Sgirl says – reply to this


    84

    She's fug as shit so who cares? A monkey could cut that nappy hair! It looks like shit!



  85. 85

    Ms Obama is very beautiful, and IMO that hairstyle does NOTHING for her, I was amazed that was her usual, by a Chicago stylist it looks so middle America fug. She really needs a new hairdo!



  86. 86

    She needs a new do. Her hair makes her forhead look HUGE!!



  87. 87

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ WHOFUCKINGCARES!!! She looks like a NBA player…not even WNBA..just a straight NBA…with a fug wig on. Chyna has a smaller jawline.



  88. 88

    Being First Lady means it's time for a new do.



  89. 89

    who fucking cares. just another big waste of our money.

    this is a blessing for her. i've always thought as a first lady, her hair should look soooo much better. it's never completely tamed and well-styled… even in the picture above!

    if i ever came out my stylist's chair looking like that, i'd be HOT and ready for a refund! there are so many better black hair stylists out there… you don't even have to look that hard.

  91. olive says – reply to this

    Re: DrinkYourKoolaid – thanks! because, you know, i've always wanted to know that…



  92. 92

    Out with the old. In with the New. It doesn't just apply to years.



  93. 93

    Re: the last star – HAHA! Anything's better than that helmet she has now…



  94. 94

    after reading these posts I cannot understand why people cannot make a comment without bringing race into it. comment on her hair only..why say racial epithets. change starts with how you treat people…can't we move past racism in this country??
    michelle is an attractive woman that looks better this; perez obviously uploaded an unflattering pic. lastly no first lady was as bad looking as barbra bush



  95. 95

    Re: State ziti

    thanks David Duke for your enlightening racial slur…so sad you cannot make a comment without your racism shining thru. people like you are poor and ignorant spiritually and mentally.



  96. 96

    Re: angbeep

    you are such a hater



  97. 97

    She needs to get a new hair stylist anyway. Her Mother's hair looks better than her hair. It's definitely time for a new "do"! She also need to find a new dentist!



  98. 98

    i wanna see her go natural and stop with the weave and flat iron. How about a Macy Gray look Michelle?



  99. 99

    Her hair always looks jacked anyway! And I know about jacked up hair!!



  100. 100

    She's fug either way.
