Michelle Obama’s new look on 49th birthday; her best hairstyles ever (photos)

We already know that Michelle Obama got game. Now we know she got bangs.

Michelle Obama is really showing out for her 49th birthday, which comes on the eve of inauguration weekend. On her Twitter account, the fashion-forward first lady posted a photo of her sporting longer hair with bangs, a radical departure from the side part she has sported for most of her husband’s first term.

What do you think of the new look?

While you ponder that, let’s take a look at some of Michelle Obama’s best hairdos since she came to national prominence during the presidential election season of 2008.
