In mid-November, Michelle Obama‘s second autobiography, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times, officially made its way to bookshelves. As a result, Obama has been busy traveling around the country to promote her latest memoir. In the midst of blessing fans with her presence on her book tour, the former First Lady has been looking absolutely stunning with teeny-tiny goddess box braids.

Most recently, on December 2, she made a stop in Atlanta wearing a black leather ensemble with her bohemian braids styled into a sky-high topknot for a one-on-one chat with director Tyler Perry. These box braids formed a perfectly-sized, textured orb on her head, and we’re sure their small size helped Obama avoid a massive headache with their light weight. A few plaits in the front were left out to frame either side of her face. 

Braids are one of the best protective styles because they make hairstyling super easy and can be worn in a variety of ways. Obama opted for a more boho vibe, hence the curly ends and tendrils poking out amongst the super-thin box braids. The size and length of each braid also make them super easy to try different looks as Obama has done, including a low bun with a side part.
