Michelle Duggar Hair

Wholesome mother of “19 Kids and Counting”, Michelle Duggar, has finally made it to the 21st century. She debuted her new look on last weeks episode of her family’s reality show on TLC. The extreme makeover was a birthday gift to her from her children.

Michelle says she loves her sleek new look and that she hasn’t changed her hairstyle in 40 years and she’s only 46! Michelle told People magazine that she and her children love her new style but she will only keep it if her husband, Jim Bob, approves. “What he likes is what I want”, she said. She did admit that Jim Bob was in a state of shock when he first saw her new hairstyle, but he is finally overcoming the initial blow.

She added: “I enjoyed the fact that my whole family and my girls came up with this amazing way of showing how much they loved me with a 24-hour birthday surprise…“I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him — what he likes is what I want,” she says. “I think he was a little shocked at first, it was so straight and so different. But he does like it. I think I shocked everyone at the [birthday] party. They were very surprised.”

Though her new cut is shorter than usual, it is still long by most people’s standards. Michelle also loves the fact that she can still wear it curly, if she wants. Some habits are hard to break.

“Little Josie kept touching my hand and saying, ‘Mommy? Mommy? Mommy?’ She wanted to make sure I was still me.”

What do you think of her new do?
