Late Sunday night, Twitter got what it had been waiting for after eight years: a photo of Michelle Obama wearing her hair naturally.

While Obama’s location is not confirmed, many believe that she and Barack are in the French Polynesian islands where Barack is writing his memoir. But while many yearn for the days of Barack Obama’s presidency, it was Michelle that stole the spotlight as Twitter had a viral fit over her beauty.
She's living life and I'm all the way for it lol. pic.twitter.com/s2mQr1sgiH

Since leaving office, both Michelle and Barack have been living life hard—they’ve gone windsurfing with Richard Branson, been greeted like rock stars in New York City, and brunched their damn hearts out. They were even seen rocking a backwards hat and pigtails in a move that had us missing our former first family like a ’90s kid misses Nickelodeon.
Obama's on vacation with the hat backwards. He's never coming back. pic.twitter.com/RUakcwwgtT

But it was Michelle wearing her hair down that broke the Internet and spoke volumes about how to own her beauty– because she did.
