Everyone knows that Michelle Obama has a great sense of style. From the first day she stepped into the White House as First Lady, Mrs. Obama has been setting fashion standards with her impeccable wardrobe choices. Her style is usually described as classic, elegant and sophisticated. However, some people think that she might be hiding something under all those perfectly tailored outfits… Do you think Michelle Obama wears a weave? Keep reading to find the answer! In recent years, the visibility of natural hair in popular culture has grown tremendously. Many celebrities have started wearing their natural hair rather than resorting to extensions or weaves. However, many people still have old-school ideas about what kind of hair is appropriate for different situations or who can wear which hairstyles. This perhaps explains why so many people are wondering if Michelle Obama wears a weave!
Does Michelle Obama Wear A Weave?
There is no definitive answer to this question. Some people say that Michelle Obama does wear a weave, while others say that she does not. There is no concrete evidence either way, so it is ultimately up to the individual to decide whether or not they believe Michelle Obama wears a weave.
Why Do People Think Michelle Obama Wears A Weave?
1. Her hair looks too perfect
Mrs. Obama’s hair always looks neat and well-maintained, just like the rest of her outfits. Her hair never seems to get messy or tangled, even after a long day at work. She also has a lot of hair for someone who isn’t African American, which is one of the reasons why people think she might be wearing a weave!
2. There are no pictures of her natural hair
There are plenty of pictures of Mrs. Obama’s hairstyles on the Internet and some people have noticed that they all look very similar. They look so similar that they might as well be pictures of the same hairstyle! It would also explain why no pictures are showing what Mrs. Obama’s natural hair looks like…
3. She is often photographed with a lot less make-up than usual
In most photographs, Michelle Obama is seen with a lot of make-up to cover up her wrinkles and imperfections. However, on one occasion she was photographed without any make-up whatsoever! The picture was taken during a trip to Los Angeles in 2014 and many people thought that she looked younger without all that heavy make-up on her face.
4. She has never been seen with her natural hair in public

5. She is often seen wearing a lot of extensions
In photographs, Mrs. Obama always appears to have a lot of hair. However, she can’t grow that much hair in such a short time! She has been photographed wearing a lot of extensions and weaves, which is another reason why people think she might be wearing a weave!
6. Her hair looks too perfect
There are several pictures of Michelle Obama’s hairstyles on the Internet and they all look pretty similar. In fact, they look so similar that one could mistake them for the same hairstyle! When these pictures are compared with pictures of her natural hair (see above), it seems pretty obvious that Mrs. Obama wears wigs or extensions very often…

Some people say that it is better to focus on what a person does rather than what they are wearing. While this is a good rule of thumb in general, it doesn’t apply in this particular case. Why? Because when it comes to Mrs. Obama, people are talking about her hair, which is her most prominent feature. Her hair is what makes her look like herself. Her hair is what makes her style recognizable. Her hair is what connects her to so many other women around the world. We all do what we can to make ourselves look good, and part of that is styling our hair. In this case, it is especially important to know that Mrs. Obama wears her natural hair because it helps combat negative stereotypes about Black women and natural hair. After all, it is important to know that a Black woman who represents the country and the First Family can look great with her natural hair.
