BIRTHDAY BANGS: Michelle's new haircut.

United States First Lady Michelle Obama has marked her 49th birthday with a new haircut.

The office of the First Lady tweeted a photograph of Michelle sporting the new do whilst speaking with LGBT military rights advocate David Hall. Hall is a citizen co-chair for the Presidential Inaugural Committee, and is helping organise Michelle's husband's second term celebration.

The First Lady is much more popular than her husband. According to a recent Pew Research Center poll, only 22 percent of Americans view her unfavourably, compared with a 38 percent unfavourable rating for the President.

The internet is especially enamored with her, with viral juggernaut Buzzfeed posting an article about the haircut almost instantly, titled simply: "Michelle Obama Got Bangs".

What do you think of the First Lady's new look?
