Michelle Obama on Essence & Johnny Wright’s Go-To Hairstyle

While I was at Bronner Bros, I had the opportunity to sit in on SoftSheen-Carson’s Make Me A Master Stylist kickoff.

After Celebrity hairstylist Johnny Wright’s AMAZING  inspirational speech, he performed a demo for us. As most of you know, he does First Lady Michelle Obama’s hair!! She is on the cover of the October Essence and she has a similar, if not the same, hairstyle he showed us. He said it is his go-to style if he has to do something quick or if his client wants a nice, classy updo.

He took us step by step as his model started with a head for of big curls.  (sorry I didn’t catch a pic of that). He used a paddle brush to comb the curls out so it was full of body. He teased the top very gentle to create body specifically in the front.

He used bobby pins to secure the hair as he placed the hair on the bottom.



He pulled hair from different directions and bobby pinned neatly. Here is the finished look from the front:

And from the back:

Its not a bun and not a ponytail..I don’t know what to call it but its cute!!! I forgot what he called this style.

Very elegant and classy!
