During her time as FLOTUS, Michelle Obama wore her locks relaxed, hanging straight or swooped into some sleek yet simple updo. She always looked sophisticated and powerful and feminine; we loved her White House look.
But since saying sayonara to Washington, Michelle has let her hair loose. Quite literally, in fact. This week the former First Lady was spotted wearing her hair au naturel, and the internet is loving her curly ’do pulled into a low pony.

There’s no word on where or when exactly this photo was snapped, but we do know that Michelle is in the French Polynesian with Barack, who’s working on his memoir. To be clear, we wouldn’t be spending time in the bathroom styling our hair either–there’s Tahitian sun to be enjoyed.
Earlier this year, The Obamas were spotted on Richard Branson’s Necker Island, wearing flip flops and jean shorts, informing us that, yeah, they do remember how to let loose. We’re digging Michelle’s laidback vibe, and flaunting her hair in its natural state only makes us adore her even more.
The internet wholeheartedly agrees. Here are some of our favourite Tweets so far.
