From the moment she was introduced as Barack Obama's better half at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, former First Lady Michelle Obama was poised to be a style icon. Over the last 12 years, we've watched her style evolve and set the standard for how first ladies can not only take risks with her fashions, but also hairstyles. From wispy curls to a blunt bob, it seems like our forever First Lady never disappoints in public appearance.

In the eight years in the role and the nearly four years since leaving the White House, Mrs. Obama remains a perfect example of hair goals and the following 10 looks prove it. If you've ever thought about switching up your mane for something different, considering use these haircuts from Michelle as inspiration.
