Obama weighs in on wife's new hairdo, likes her bangs

At a reception before giving his inaugural address, President Obama took note of first lady Michelle Obama's new hairstyle, saying "I love her bangs."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, who began his second term Sunday, weighed in on what he facetiously said was the most "significant" event of the weekend: his wife's new hairstyle.

First lady Michelle Obama, a Harvard law graduate known as much for her sharp fashion sense as her fight to curb obesity, revealed a new hairstyle recently that features bangs. The new hairdo has attracted a lot of attention.

Speaking at a reception with supporters the night before giving his inaugural address, Obama said he liked the look.

"First of all, I love Michelle Obama. And to address the most significant event of this weekend, I love her bangs," Obama said to laughter and cheers from the crowd.

"She looks good. She always looks good," he said.
