Beauty's Product: Michelle Obama's Beauty and Style

Michelle Obama. Her M.O. is reminiscent of another First Lady by the name of "O", no? Whichever way you swing politically, we can all agree on one thing: thank God there is a woman with a brain and a beauty back in the White house. (On a personal note I happen to think it will be good for the country to have a president in the Oval office who clearly wants to eff his wife, but that's, almost, beside the point.) The point is that she's hot and I want whatever she's having. Seriously I'd die to find out what she's buying at the Nordie's beauty counter. Since I'm certain I'd be arrested if I tried to actually follow her on such an outing I'm posting this a-MAzing guide to getting her look. Enjoy!

Sleek, shiny and simple, Obama’s hair is a perfect accent to her impeccable style. Try:

For a smooth blow out with tons of body, this weightless crème contains a long lasting medium hold and 24 Smooth Multi-Mend TechnologyTM to instantly smooth, repair damage and stop frizz before it starts – for silky, straight hair that lasts all day.
Price: $15 at fine salons. To locate a Sleek.look salon please log onto
