First Lady Michelle Obama Gets Honey Blonde Highlights. For the past few weeks we’ve been dishing on how black celebs are now going blonde, and the movement has officially made it into the White House. Much like black lipstick, blonde hair is now the “it” color to try. Our first lady was recently spotted with a new center part, and fashionable new honey blonde highlights mixed into her shoulder length layered mane. Her lovely new highlighted blonde hair look amazing, and it really helps brighten her bronzed caramel complexion. Although we’re seeing many celebs opt for full on blonde hued hair, we’re also beginning to see a splash of celebs rocking blonde highlights as well. See Mrs Obama and her chic new hair color after the drop.
