Black hair in the White House, and First Lady Michelle Obama

Cynthia Washington

My goal is to share ALL the knowledge I have obtained over the last nine years about hair, skin and nails with everyone who is "Mane conscious"!

I've had an article I wanted to share with everyone for a while now, but felt was old news.  However, after a long time friend forwarded me a current article on First Lady Michelle Obama, I am taking the liberty to post them together.

first lasted only 1 week.JPG

"When it comes to looks and style, set your own standards"

The first editorial is a New York Times fashion and style article that talks about black hair and politics.  This really is an interesting read, and unquestionably a mane attraction hot topic.

The second article is an upcoming edition of Glamour magazine (sample article) featuring Michelle Obama, I love it!  Mrs. Obama answers questions from Glamour magazine reader's that shed some insight on her intellect and style.  One of her responses I particularly liked said and I quote, "When it comes to looks and style, set your own standards" This statement expresses wisdom and self confidence, and is one example why I adore Mrs. Obama!  I admire the fact that Michelle Obama is an open Christian. She's beautiful; possess wisdom beyond her years, and she is confident.

I feel she is an excellent role model for women everywhere, and all you Christian women take note;  Proverbs 14:1 says EVERY WISE woman builds her house, but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands.

Peace and Love,

Staying true to your own style is key - even if others think you need to amp it up a bit (yes, I said it, she needs a bit more flavor, but hey that is me). Oh yes, and for all of those folks that keep talking stuff about Michelle showing off her arms, I say "stop hating!"
Peace, Jetta

Crazy that I checked this blog out today becaue my grandfather was gushing over how pretty he thought Michelle Obama looked on the cover of "Glamour" not even a few hours ago. There's an interesting read in Essence magazine about black women in the White House. The only one I knew about before was Valerie Jarrett. It was cool seeing others. Black Women in the Obama Administration
