Michelle Obama tried a new hairstyle out as she attended a White House dinner dressed to perfection. Her long, loose curls were gathered into a side-swept ponytail for a modern, romantic updo.

First Lady, Michelle Obama, looked beautiful at the White House-held Chinese State Dinner on September 25. Hosting alongside President Obama, Michelle wore a fitted, off-the-shoulder dress by Vera Wang in classic black. To complement her dressed up look, Michelle styled her hair in a new look, with a curly side ponytail. Get the details on her look, and see how you can copy the First Lady for your next special occasion.

If you’ve ever wanted a peek inside a glamorous White House event, Mrs. Obama had you covered when she shared a picture of the set up (and her gorgeous look) to her Instagram.

To copy her hair, create a deep side part and use a one-inch curling iron to curl your hair away from your face. Add a spritz of shine spray like Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to get Michelle’s glossy locks with hold. Now, here’s where things get sneaky — while from the front it looks like Michelle’s hair has just been brushed over to one shoulder, a back view shows the parted side was actually twisted under and pinned in place to give it an almost-a-low-ponytail effect.
