When Michelle Obama became the latest First Lady of the United States in 2008, she immediately gained the fashion community's vote for her all-American style. We've always thought Michelle Obama had the elegance and grace of a model, and she is definitely a style icon, not only with clothes but also with hairstyles.  She's a great role model for women. As her new life begins with the royal family, her trends with hair and fashion will be in the constant media spotlight. We love seeing her romantic looks and stylist taste for classic fashion.

Michelle Obama has been in the White House for many years—and while the rest of the world has been lusting after her impeccable sense of style, the beauty editors among us have been marveling at her incredible range of hairstyles. Who's responsible for those tresses? Johnny Wright, the First Lady's exclusive hairstylist and artistic style director for  SoftSheen-Carson. Not surprisingly, the Chicago native is similarly fashion-minded.

"The hair is just like any other accessory," he told us. "You've really got to make it go with what you're wearing." We dished with Wright and got tips for pulling off styles that are downright presidential.
