Michelle Obama continues to kill her final White House looks from head to toe. She shocked onlookers with a bold new haircut on November 29 as she unveiled the 2016 holiday decorations.

Obama, 52, who had shoulder-length dark brown locks, turned to longtime stylist Johnny Wright for a blunt, center-parted bob. “🚨 NEW CUT ALERT 🚨 💇🏾,” he captioned a November 30 Instagram. The cut complemented her red, white and blue floral-printed A-line midi dress with a deep scoop neckline and a bow-tie detail on the waist.

On Tuesday, Nov. 29, in the East Room of the White House, as part of the Joining Forces initiative, first lady Michelle Obama welcomed military families to view the 2016 holiday decorations. As in years past, several of the White House holiday decorations honored military families.

Wright, who also works with Tamron Hall, most recently styled Obama’s hair in soft waves for her November 10 sit-down with Melania Trump, where the current first lady wore a Narciso Rodriguez dress in purple, a.k.a. the color of bipartisanship.

This year, Wright has helped FLOTUS achieve several head-turning looks, including her waves at the Democratic National Convention in July. “It’s so funny when certain things she does get more exposure [than others]. We've been doing this look all this year,” he told Elle at the time. “It hasn't really changed, other than that it grew a little longer, but I think it's effortless. I think it's classic, right on the edge of fashion. She's telling a few stories with that look.”
