With all of the recent media attention paid to President Obama’s noticeably darker hair, it hardly compares to the amount of coif talk that his wife, Michelle, sparks. More than her organic vegetable garden or sculpted arms (or, sadly, her impressive law career), Mrs. Obama’s hair has been the talk of the nation since her husband stepped into the political limelight. But that’s par for the course in this country, for behind every new president stands a First Lady with one soon-to-be-iconic hairdo.
The wife of the sixth U.S. president, John Quincy Adams, had light-brown ringlets that she swept up (save a few face-framing pieces) into lacy bonnets and ornate hair pieces.
