Michelle Obama looked stunning with a tousled updo, classic makeup and a full-length custom purple gown from Tadashi Shoji at the White House State Dinner on April 28. The stylish First Lady’s modern updo was the perfect finishing touch to her elegant look.

Michelle Obama looked impossibly chic at the White House State Dinner that President Barack Obama held on April 28 to honor Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Her slightly undone updo with face-framing curls gave her overall sophisticated look a carefree feel that was fresh and modern. Read on to see how you can copy the First Lady’s latest hairstyle yourself!

Michelle Obama’s Updo At State Dinner — Hair & Makeup While Hosting Japanese Prime Minister

To show off the elaborate lace detailing and v-neck cut on the bodice of her gown, Mrs. Obama opted for an updo hairstyle. But rather than a slicked back style, the First Lady went for soft waves that were loosely pulled back and tucked under.

To get her effortless waves, start on second-day hair that will hold the style better, and use a volumizing dry shampoo like BlowPro Faux Dry Shampoo to soak up any oil and add lift.

Create a deep side part and use a one-inch curling iron, wrapping random sections of the hair around it for more texture. Curl sections on either side of your face and spray your whole head with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish for a more volumized look. Pull your hair back at the nape of the neck and roll the ends under (if you’re hair is longer, you may want to twist it into a simple knot), fastening them in place with bobby pins.
