Get The Look: Michelle Obama’s Swarovski Headband

michelle obama with headbands

There's no denying you have to be a special lady to commission Wolford to create a blinged-out headband, and without question, Michelle Obama is that woman. According to WWD, the First Lady’s styling team reached out to the luxury brand to create customized Swarovski bands in a variety of colors. As she wore them to White House receptions and a trip to China earlier this month, Lady O stylishly proved that thick headpieces aren’t only for elementary school children.

To get her look, part your hair down the center or side. Apply the headband slightly behind your hairline. Finally, tuck the sides of the band behind your ears.

Most of us don’t have clout like Mrs. Obama, or the means to spend $46 on a standard Wolford hair accessory (sadly the jeweled bands are not available to the public), but now you can score a comparable accessory for half the price. ESSENCE.com readers can purchase a Wolford headband for $15 by visiting vente-privee.com. Registration to vente-privee is free, with no purchase obligation.
