Michelle Duggar Hairdo: I Am Loving It

November 08, 2012 04:14 PM by Donna W. Martin

Michelle Duggar recently had a hair makeover. Her longtime gal pal and stylist, Cindy convinced the 19 Kids and Counting star to go with a more modern style. And just before turning 46, Michelle took the plunge. Cindy took eight inches off Michelle’s long locks and took her from a curly look to a straight one. So how is Michelle adjusting to her new look? And what does Jim Bob and their brood think of mom’s new look?

According to Yahoo, Michelle said, “Going from curly to totally straight was a shock for me, but I am loving it and I have been doing both styles, curly and straight, since the cut.” But she isn’t the only one adjusting to her new look. “I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him — what he likes is what I want,” Michelle said. “I think he was a little shocked at first, it was so straight and so different.” She added, “But he does like it.”

And what about the kids? Do they like the new change in mom? “Little Josie kept touching my hand and saying, ‘Mommy? Mommy? Mommy?’” Michelle said of their youngest daughter, 2. “She wanted to make sure I was still me.”

Michelle’s hairdo hasn’t changed in 40 years so it must have been she must have been a bit nervous about having the makeover. “I can trust Cindy,” she said. “But my back was to the mirror and I didn’t know how much I got taken off.” She added, “It was too funny when I realized how much was gone! And it felt so light.”

What do you think of Michelle Duggar’s new hairdo? Do you like the curly style or the straight style? Post a comment and tell us what you think.

    She looks younger! I still haven’t figured out how they NEVER wear pants yet they can wear makeup, get perms and pierce there ears. Being in a non-denominational church since teen years I understand the dress but I don’t get the rest. Hopefully the new look won’t lead to baby #20!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think Michelle Duggar’s new hair style looks fantastic and makes her look years younger! And after having 19 kids, I think it was time for her to have a change!

    Michelle, I LOVE your new hairdo!!! It’s great! Of course, I think that you’re a great mom and I believe that you should do what makes YOU happy because it seems like you’re always doing what makes everyone else happy. I think it’s just really nice that you finally took some time out just for yourself. I’d love to be your friend!

    I absolutely love the new look. It is refreshing and is definitely making you look younger. It’s one thing to have your husband love long hair BUT you are the one taking care of it. Keep the new look. It is very becoming.

  12. Debbie Says:
    November 8th, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Michelle, I LOVE your new hairdo! I also think it’s great that you finally took some time out just to do something for yourself. It seems that you’re always doing something to make everyone else happy….and there are so many people in your family that, by the time you get around to yourself, well, you’re totally worn out. You deserve to be happy, too. Yes, I know that making Jim Bob and your kids and grandkids happy also makes you happy….but sometimes you need to take just a little time for you. I think that you and I could be really good friends; I’d love to meet you.

    Who cares? People are freezing, without shelter or power in the Northeast..who in there right mind has that many kids and then a tv network gives them a show and plays right into it. There are many more deserving people out there who deserve a breadk

  16. Deb Says:

  18. TC Says:

    I do not get how people say it is irresponsible for them to have as many children as they do. They do not take food stamps, they are not taking rent assistance, they are not on medicaid or whatever it may be called in their state. Michelle is frugal with money, and Jim Bob works hard doing what he needs to do to EARN their money. They also – SURPRISE! – help many others, as that is what the Lord tells them to do. So their own children see them working hard, making ends meet and relying upon themselves, and that is what they will do when they go out into the world. Not rely upon taxpayers to pay their bills, or pay for their lives.

    This couple – this family – is a living testament to love, in its purest form.

    And Michelle ROCKS that haircut! love it!

    Was the reason she had a makeover the same reason Kate Goesslin did. Is Big Bob going out and messin around with someone new. Wait about 6 months and see how this family is coming along. Does this mean the kids get to change their looks. I think these people are just plain nuts.

  22. Jules Says:
    November 18th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Calling someone nuts and irresponsbile because they have a lot of children is ridiculous. I know people who have one child and are totally screwed up. i would rather see 19 healthy, upright, stable children be added to the world than one single snot-nosed brat. This family does well with what they have been given. They are anything but irresponsible.

  23. Sofie Bouvier Says:

  24. Linda Says:
    November 24th, 2012 at 2:55 am

    I believe that not only does Michelle’s hair look lovely, but she also has a beautiful, caring heart, following the Lord’s word to raise her children with caring, sharing and giving hearts and to also love unconditionally, as Michelle and her husband do. I agree with Jules comment above…that it is far better for the world to be blessed with a family who shares and cares with those in need, rather than a spoiled, selfish person who doesn’t care about anyone but themselves. God bless this family and I pray that they prosper and continue to grow in Jesus’ knowledge and love. Thank you for sharing your life with us…the Duggars’s are a good example of a family who let God’s light shine through them, in this troubled world. Amen.

    This woman disgusts me beyond words when she said ““I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him — what he likes is what I want,” Blech! Does this woman have no brain of her own?! It is irresponsible to have so many brats to this already overpopulated Earth! Hopefully this stupid haircut does not mean brat #20!

  26. Neuterthaduggers Says:

    Hopefully he is sickened by her haircut and they have no more kids.

  27. TammyC Says:
    November 26th, 2012 at 8:39 am

    @Dee and @Deb – It always intrigues me how people make comments like “Who cares” and talk about more important issues in the world and how bad… yet they clicked on the article and took the time to look it over and comment on it. Hmmm, seems like they cared doesn’t it? LOL… silly grouchy people. Maybe they should be on a different website with more “serious” articles.

  28. TammyC Says:
    November 26th, 2012 at 8:45 am

    And @Gabrielle, when you marry someone and join yourself to them you should take their opinion into account. Doing so does not mean you “have no brain”. It doesn’t always mean putting their likes before yours, but you are a team and should be respectful of each others opinions/thoughts.

  29. Lizzy Says:

    She looks GREAT! Jim Bob needs to get with the program & try paying his wife a compliment!!

  30. TerriB Says:
    November 26th, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    You look awesome Michelle!! I love the way that you and Jim Bob both love to please each other and you care deeply about the way each of you think. That is a true bond and demonstration of love in a relationship!

  31. Kathleen C. Says:
    November 26th, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    She looks so much younger in the new straight hair style with bangs. Hope she keeps the bangs; she can let her hair grow longer for Jim Bob, but keep it straight. I love that family & their love for God.

  32. Cathi Says:
    November 28th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    I think Michelle’s new hair style looks lovely. That being said, I wish she would do what pleases her too and not just Jim-bob. although that’s important, a good sense of self worth is best. If he doesn’t like it, maybe it’s the green monster closing in. Jealousy is ugly, but his wife isn’t.

  33. Aviva Says:
    November 28th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    I don’t understand the first comment. I am an orthodox Jew and I NEVER wear pants, AND, as a married lady, cover my hair. But I get my lashes tinted, hair colored, love wearing make up and do various other spa services as needed. What does one thing have to do with another? As far as the people hating on them for having so many kids, I know of many, many people who have kids in the double digits (13+kids) . What strikes me here is how many of these people would probably consider themselves to be worldly people, but are so ignorant of groups that live nearby (i.e. in your own country).

  34. Dtex Says:
    November 29th, 2012 at 9:26 am

    I don’t understand why people seem to hate this beautiful family. They love and care for each other and I think the fact that she wants to please her husband is wonderful. Some people could learn a thing or two about what a real marriage is from them.

  35. Chels Says:

    I do not understand how this woman still looks so young and has so many kids. I wish she would share her secret.

  37. IFM Says:
    November 30th, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Mrs. Duggar looks very attractive with curly, long hair. This is obviously her natural hairstyle and I could see no reason to alter it– her shorter style is far less attractive.

    I hope she doesn’t try to have a 20th child (again), a more pressing issue. The illness of Josie and death of the last child clearly show that her body is no longer able to manage so many pregnancies, but I am sure she’ll pay no attention to this as religion always seems to run women’s lives.

  38. Sally Says:
    November 30th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    To Chels – She looks young because she invited the
    Lord into her heart at an early age. That takes away the stresses and worries of everyday living.
    Try it, you’ll like it.
    And Gabreille – you are disgusted? I purposefully
    dress and wear makeup and nice hairstyles because
    my husband likes it. What is about you? Look good until you get married and then turn into an
    old hag.
    Obviously, she likes having a good husband and well-behaved and well educated children. I love
    her for that.

  39. Jen Says:
    December 1st, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    To those who are miffed about her saying she wants to do something to impress her husband and do what he likes, don’t most women do this? Why do they put on make-up? Why do you wear those painfully high heels? Or sexy lingerie? It makes you feel good, but it also makes your significant other happy. I do lots of things for my husband because it makes him happy, and he reciprocates. It’s called a marriage.

  40. Angela Harting Says:
    December 1st, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Wow! Michelle looks great.. Unreal how there are ignorant people who make rude comments. This was not a bash session, only if you like her hair or not. Everyone live your life for GOD,yourself,family and your friends. Michelle and Jim Bob hope these negative comments don’t cause you or your family any stress. Stay positive and unto the LORD JESUS CHRIST!

    I thought her hair was just an easy style because of time constraints having sooo many children! I often just “scrunch” my hair curly (like hers) when I am in a super hurry! Lately though, some of her curls have not seemed to match the rest, almost like a hairpiece, even in this picture! It was indeed time for a change! Straightening hair with natural curls takes longer to style, so having a stylist will help! She seems to be a great mother, and of course, it is essential they remain perfectly proper “for the camera”. We’ve seen the other children helping her> as they should! They have been excellent examples, and each will raise up and call her/them blessed! There is so much interaction, enthusiasm, with more~ esp within home schooling/musical/field trip ventures. We attend a Cstn school that doesn’t have as many children as the Dugger’s in grades k-12 combined! :) Bless and Keep this family who do keep the right values especially mixed up in TV world! ~& She does look great! Maybe perhaps as a grandmother, it is time to stop having children. I say this because by our choice we stopped trying when our only son was born with multiple problems. By Gd’s grace he has overcome now, but I emphasize that WE decided not to take that risk! Thus it left us with a very small family and a somewhat lonely child. It does have it’s drawbacks with it’s simplicity~ ALL OF OUR RELATIVES CHOSE TO SHOP on THANKSGIVING, so we took a trip instead; I am sure this family had a traditional day with Thankfulness in the center of the festivities! We all can learn from them! I wish our own relatives treasured connection~ BTW; The invitation of the Lord does not keep one young looking, doesn’t de-stress always, nor remove all worries! He is no respecter of persons and rain falls on all! It does keep you from eternity in Hell and reassures us of an intimate, ever present LOVE in whom we can TRUST -of which- creates a ‘peace’ in itself!

    2 parents cannot provide adequately for the needs of that many children. We hear about how wonderful these 2- parent families are and then hear how dysfunctional they were from the children and/or one of the spouses years later after all the damage. There is no way to send any number of those children to college or tech school without a TV show. White families always get the privilege of TV shows whlle all these so-called approving bloggers would denigrate Black or Hispanic families despite the stats that most families on welfare are white and that 3/4 of food insecure families are also white and more whites use and deal drugs and engage in crime to do it. 1/2 of marriages end in divorce and more than half involve a cheating wife. Also, most plural marrriages and all these huge families do depend on welfare because of their irresponsibility. What can we learn from them? Get a TV show to raise all the children you cannot afford? How about a little reality -testing!

    I just hope to God she lets her daughters get a makover. She makes them wear crap that would not be out of place on Little House on the Prairie. I’ve seen this show exactly once and wanted to free those poor daughters. They ones who were old enough to realize how tacky they look were all but blinking “help me!” in Morse code.
    Oh, and they can aftord to pay for the kids without food stamps etc because THEY ARE ON TV. They star in a TV SHOW for CASH. They also admitted that a lot of that barn that thry live in was comped.
    Finally, I dont care how nice you are, how how well-intentioned you may be– it is a human impossibility to really give the kind of nuturing that a child needs when you have that many. The older ones are no doubt raising the younger ones– paying the price for their parents’ narcissism. Sad.

  47. Lisa Says:

    Her outer beauty reflects only an infinitesimal fraction of what her inner beauty/heart has to shine upon us. For it is in her good works: her passionately cleaving to her mate; her shining example of womanhood for her daughters; understanding and uplifting the fragile ego of each male child. (This is so often forgotten and overlooked by mothers, when fostering our sons’ belief in themselves.) Michelle very astutely understands that when a woman genuinely admires and believes in her mate/son he will go out, and bring back to her, the world;
    I believe that this woman, Michelle, through example, has taught her children and the world: humility, patience, generousity in word, thought, deed, love and spirit.
    Mainly, it has been her inner light/beauty, that continues to teach/show me how to be a kinder and sweeter wife, mother, sister, etc, She has mostly reflected the way to being a truer and more grateful child, of our Creator.
    No outer makeover, can ever capture the true beauty that lies within Michelle Duggar’s selfless and beautiful heart.
    Thank you for being a good mother to us all.

    I agree with all the positive comments above. To have a large family is their desire, and they are doing it well. We do not all have to imitate them, our goals and choices are our own. We need to LIVE AND LET LIVE. These people are productive members of our society, and should be complimented.

  50. vinnie Says:
    December 4th, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    Dear Lord,

    Is this news? I think Michelle should stop having kids for the simple reason that she has all the other kids watching them and doing all the chores. They also don’t seem to have too many job choices when they get older other than selling cars. They need to get a real life, and maybe some more education.

  51. sandy Says:
    December 4th, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    They can afford the kids because he does realestate. He was also a state senator or representiive. They are well cared for and nothing wrong with kids having responsibility or not running around half naked like most teenagers do today. I care what my husband thinks of my hair too and I am an self employed nurse who supports my husband and I.

    If the Duggars want to have 50 children what business is it of anyone else? Since they take care of all of their children and do not use welfare what is the problem? And if over population is an issue what about all of the illegal immigrants who come to the US, keep having lots of children and abuse our welfare system? That again is not all of them but quite a lot of illegals in the county where I live and work do this. The rest of us work several jobs, are in school online and taking care of our own families. Just sayin’.

    She looks absolutely beautiful! She is a wonderful mother and has wonderful children…also, its between her and her husband how they live their lives. If they want 10 more kids and everything she does is to please her husband, at least she has well behaved, respectful children, a thriving marriage and seems very happy. Unless you can say the same, who is anyone to judge????

    As a naturally curly-haired girl myself..I just have to say that it’s pretty gutting when people keep mentioning how much better you look when/if you (temporarily) straighten your hair.

    It isn’t that the compliments aren’t appreciated but you have to understand that the perfectly bone-straight hair-thing is WORK when one has extremely curly hair. It requires a great deal of energy and time (which I’ll just take a leap here and say I assume the Mum of 19 and counting does not have a whole lot of extra time).

    The flat-straight look can not be achieved easily and so the compliments are a double-edged sword. It would similar to a very diminutive person wearing 7 inch heels one day..and everyone saying how fab the person looks, being 7 inches taller..and furthermore, the person should do it more often. Or maybe if a bald guy wore a tupee and received rave reviews. See what I mean..?!

    My own hair is extremely curly and extremely long (the only way to deal with hair with that much curl is to let it grow & grow bc the weight is necessary if you want to avoid the ‘frizzy blues’). It’s because of this that I’ll say that Mrs. Duggar has beautiful, healthy-looking hair and it’s lovely either way.

  58. beth baker Says:
    December 5th, 2012 at 7:26 am

    Let’s hope Jim Bob is no longer attracted to her so they will not continue to have babies for the other children to raise. It is not just whether they can support the children financially but no one has time to emotionally support that many people or to give each child the necessary attention. Plus, don’t get me started on the carbon footprint of that family. EGADS!! You would think that last baby with all her health issues would convince them it’s time to stop. I think “the Lord” is telling them as well.
    And I’m sure the money from the show helps, so they are not supporting themselves totally.
    Did they donate to Locks of Love? All of the girls need to get a makeover and donate their hair. That mom seems so selfish. She should just enjoy her grandchildren now and let them be in the spotlight for a change. She likes the attention when she is pregnant, then just hands the baby over to the next oldest child to raise. Those poor girls end up being teen moms whether they like it or not. It would be interesting to truly know how the kids feel when mom announces another pregnancy.
    She is the person behind the statement “it’s a uterus, not a clown car”.

    I think Michelle looks very nice with her hair shorter and she looks so much younger! I don’t know why people complain so much about the Duggars. They do so many things for so many people and I think they are a wonderful family. It is no ones business as far as how many children they have. Why do people have to be so mean?

  60. Donna Says:
    December 5th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    I think Michelle NEEDED to update her look. And this style is great on her! However, I have a problem understanding why anyone would have so many kids. There are already so many children in this world who don’t have ANY parents & would love to find a loving couple to adopt them. It’s not that the Duggars don’t care properly for their many children. It’s that the world is so totally overpopulated NOW. In a few more years think how many descendants of the Duggars there will be. What if each Duggar child had 19 kids of his/her own? What if every single person from M & JB’s generation had 19 children themselves? Can you see the ultimate effect this would have on each of us on this planet? Will Earth’s limited resources even hold out?

    How is her personal like irresponsible to you? they are taking care of their family. she looks great either way! as far as her liking what her husband likes…there’s nothing wrong with wanting to make our spouse happy. he’s not demanding her to do anything; she just knows what he likes. ppl are so judgmental and flat out silly, stupid, or even rude!

    I really like her new hair style, she looks so much younger and stylish. I admire the fact that she wants to impress her husband, I want to impress mine too, I want him to think I look nice.

    40 yaers .is too too long to have a hair makeover.It looks great, now work on the whole family and not have the older kids raising the younger ones, because I see a futre of resentment for you and your husband with the older children.I came from a family of 8 children and I know form experience what will and can happen, even in your lifestyle. Please don’t have anymore children, I know they are a blessing from God, but …

    Wow, so much better. Always thought she was very pretty, but the old do was aging her and giving her a case of the frumps. I think it’s wonderful that she wants to look good for her husband, but I am sure he will think she is beautiful no matter what.

    I think Michelle ‘s new hairstyle looks very nice. I think that people should stop criticizing her for having such a large family. In America, we all have the right to practice our religion A’s we choose. If you want to use abortion and birth control so that you have only a few children that is your right. But other women have the right to choose to do the opposite, which is to have many children. This is America, both choices are allowed! (and Michelle’s husband was very rich BEFORE they had the tv show).

    WOW! People are so critical of her and her family. Different strokes for different folks. As long as they are happy and not hurting their children, why are people so upset? You think you know better? Maybe someone else thinks you stink as a parent. Most of us do the best with what we have.

    She looks great, I live a city away from her and have seen their family at auctions etc, My family have lots of kids as well, In Arkansas it is common to have large familys. My mom was a Skaggs and she had 13 siblings, and lots more family had large familys. But her hair is stylish and nice she needs to look as pretty as she pleases, and not worry about the people who frown on her for having a large family–GOD has a part in it as well

    As a Christian man it pleased me greatly to see that Sister Duggar knows her place and realizes her appearance is all about pleasing her husband. More of you modern gals should realize that you need to worship God and Husband, tend to the children and to women’s work … talk less and don’t think so much. Your Husband leads the family – you are there in support of him. Don’t sass back at him, please him in EVERY way and he’s less likely to seek comfort from another woman. A good Christian woman knows that her Husband’s and his children’s needs are more important than her own – it’s the natural order. Lioness makes the kill but Lion and cubs eat first …

    She’s a cute little filly smart enough to know her husband’s opinion is the only one that matters. She stays home with the kids, agrees with him and does his bidding in the kitchen AND the bedroom. The rest of you gals might hang on to your men if you took a page from her bible.

    Why is it disgusting for a woman to want to impress her husband? I am sure that most women at some point have tried to impress a man to get him to date or marry them… why not do it as a married woman. Of course he will return the favor, a good man does that. It is give and take. Nothing wrong with that. I try to impress my husband, it is not easy, but it let’s him know that I care about him and his opinions/thoughts… our marriage is strong.

    Yeldah, it’s not disgusting for her to want to impress her husband (by agreeing with him). It’s disgusting that she doesn’t have enough personal style and sense of herself to know what SHE herself wants and likes!!Like how the runaway bride didn’t even know how she liked her own plate of eggs to be cooked. She just always ate whatever her boyfriend / fiancee / husband to be was having for breakfast and had never taken the time to figure out if she liked fried, poached, scrambled eggs or omelets!!

  90. Robyn Says:
    December 15th, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    BTW, she did NOT get a “make over” She got her hair “did” to a style updated to the current century. But, it’s the same batshit crazy eyes and FROZEN faced pale skin and joyless mouth peeking out round that newly burgundy straight hair.

    No disrespect but how can you still have kids after the complications with Josie? And she needs to do what she wants and what she likes. You are already married. You don’t need to always impress Jim bob. Do things for you. Dang, you have 19 of his kids.

  92. Melanie Says:
    December 18th, 2012 at 1:09 am

    I just see Kate from “Jonh n Kate plus 8″, the before and after. This disgusts me. What would Jesus do?? I guess he’d whore himself out to the media. These people have every right to overpopulate the planet, and that’s the problem. Over-breeding should be a privilidge and not a right. Anyone who insists on having 19 CHILDREN should be forced to live in a finite area, such as an island and spend their days there, fighting for resources. The days are over where the planet/society can sustain two adults creating a litter of 19 (or possibly more, something tells me these followers of Christ are not done yet).

    December 18th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Great new hair!

    Let me get this straight. If she were to want to have an abortion it would be “her choice” but if she wants to keep having kids we get an opinion??? If you are pro choice then be pro choice all the way and let her choose how many kids is right for her.

    As for the older kids helping with the younger, what is wrong with that? I helped with my younger siblings and we only had 4. They grow up to be responsible. The kids may not hate it that much, they are choosing the same lifestyle.

    And as for those of you saying “they only have money because they are on tv”. Well, if you we’re on tv you would expect to make some money. What does it matter if they make it that way? Plenty of others make it the same way and nobody complains.

    And mrmarkymarkmark you are just looking for attention. Nobody can really believe all that. The bible says nothing of the sort and that isn’t what she does at all.

  96. Duggar Fan Says:
    December 21st, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    I started reading the comments and stopped because of the sickening comments, I hope Michelle Duggar doesn’t read this garbage.
    1) The hair is great!
    2) I see nothing wrong with her wanting to impress her husband. Maybe if more women were like her the divorce rate wouldn’t be so damn high. It’s not like she says “I hate my hair long but because Jim Bob likes it long I keep it that way”. I always try to look my best for my husband, I mean who doesn’t want their husband to be attracted to them?
    3) How many kids she has isn’t anyone’s business except theirs. They take care to raise their own kids physically, emotionally and financially. IF you watched the show you would know that they make money off of renting out business properties. Of course the show pays them SOMETHING but what about the other crap on tv? Jersey Shore, The Kardashians etc do you not think they get paid also? (probably a helluva lot more than the Duggars also).
    4) for those who think she should not have more kids because of what happened with Josie. Well how many parents out there have a bad pregnancy experience and still have more? Michelle had Kidney stones and that was the root of all the problems with Josie (having her come so early). I guess my neighbour with the Autistic child should have stopped at one? Or perhaps when I had a miscarriage back in April I should have taken that as a “sign” not to have any children? How ridiculous! If this would have happened with her first child I bet many of you would be saying that she shouldn’t let it stop her from having more children. My friend who went into early labour and delivered her baby boy at 25 weeks should surely not try for a number two right? it’s just cannot be in the plans for her *rolls eyes*.
    Michelle actually had a miscarriage after her first son, I guess way back then she should have stopped while ahead to eh?

    From watching the show her children are very mature and responsible, they are not running amuck causing trouble in the world. I would much rather see her have 20 more then some people I know ever birthing ONE child.
    Even their son Josh the moment he wanted to court Anna he opened a used car lot in order to take care of his family. Now all the Duggars need is a crash course in extreme couponing :P
    I say Kudos to them for raising such nice children!

    Now, if her daughters could STOP with the awful perms. It is one thing if your hair is naturally curly, or you have someone professional do it, but, their hair looks to ‘dollar store’. Nothing wrong with the length, as long as they keep to it..

    But, Michelle should learn she has to PLEASE HERSELF FIRST! Be happy, love HERSELF! Then, her husband should be happy if she were curly,, straight or BALD!

Stop showing how jealous you are of 2 people who actually love each other and their family. I personnally have no children nor do I want any AND my “faith” is a bit questionable, but that doesn’t give me the right to criticize something that works. I could watch their show continuously, it renews my hope in people. The more Duggars on this earth the better. They don’t use welfare, they teach their children to help others, they travel to countries that are less fortunate that this one to try to bring some happiness to those people. They definitely are more entertaining to watch than Kate and her 8 annoying whining brats or that Honey BooBoo fool

    I don’t understand why a few of you have talked so badly about her for having more kids then most ppl do. She and her husband can have as many kids as they wish too and as long as she supports her children in their emotional , physical and financial needs then you all need to stay out of it. TMZ asked if we like her hair NOT HER LIFESTYLE.

    as for her hair, I love it. And yes keeping your husband happy is an awesome way to say you love him, Just like him keeping her happy is his #1 priority.

They have not witnessed you giving back to the community 10 fold- all with hard work and no government assistance. May God continue to bless you all with his grace and love.

    Women are cheating all over the place, nowadays! (Leann Rimes, Coco/IceT, Kristen Stewart, Suzy Favor Hamilton the Olympian & Vegas call girl, Rita Ora/Kardashian, Petraeus women).

    My latest book, “I Steal Wives: A serial adulterer reveals the REAL reasons more and more ‘happily married’ women are cheating” is a powerful look at this EXPLOSIVE topic of female infidelity. And the REAL reasons aren’t the typical blather you hear on talk-TV or read in the SECOND-HAND information of some psychologist’s self-help book. It’s now trending in the top 1% of books selling on Amazon!

    This is not a ‘nice’ book in any way, whatsoever. It is HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL: you’ll either love it or HATE it! It will bring up stuff you don’t want to think about or look at! Hate the author for a big ego and being so immoral, but what you’ll learn about relationships and women is pure gold!

    And let’s be honest, we’ve all heard the same relationship advice for years, even decades. WE’RE ALL LOOKING FOR FRESH NEW ADVICE FOR OUR RELATIONSHIPS, but no one has a new perspective and new insights, until now!

    The book is the FIRST BOOK EVER WRITTEN on female infidelity from the FIRST-HAND, insider experience of a serial adulterer, who cheated with the wives/girlfriends of over 25 married men (and a few women), and who also happens to be a therapist (never cheated with clients)! “I Steal Wives” is a salacious, self-deprecating, at times funny, and powerfully insightful look into what is now the very cutting-edge of relationships.

    It’s the relationship version of “How to Secure Your House, as told by a professional burglar!” This is no joke. It’s that rare relationship book that’s written in guy language and guy stories. The raw truths of “I Steal Wives” will forever change how you do relationships and understand women, especially if you are one!

    You can check it now at Amazon! You’ll really like it!

  112. Arlene Says:

    Michelle looks great with the new hairdo! Looks 10+ years younger. I think it’s just fine they are having so many kids. Whites generally have a low birthrate and are fast becoming a minority. Do you know muslims have an average of 8 kids per family?! Caucasions average less than 2 kids per family. We need a lot more Duggers having kids, so don’t knock them! Plus they take total responsibility in caring for them – no gov’t assistance – so they should have as many as they want.

    About time she returned from the 80s or 70s with the wispy little bangs. But on the show she couldn’t wait to return to the crunchy curls of before. Sad that she is so concerned about Jim Bob. How ridiculous. Wish she could do something to make herself happy and not worrying about that selfish man. He has every piece of heavy equipment known to man but he buys his kids’ shoes and clothes at a thrift store, 2nd hand shoes. How disgusting. And his daughters can’t even get their hair cut and styled professionally. Probably don’t do it because “daddy likes us with long hair”. I watch the show because it is like when you can’t look away from a train wreck. It just blows my mind that these grown men and women can’t even leave home and have a life. Too busy home-schooling and cooking for their young siblings. I just one of those kids would “defect” and get a life.

    It looks very nice. I love it. If you need someplace to donate it. I have recently lost 2/3 of my hair due to medications i am required to take because of my epilepsy. I have taken many other types of meds we are finally figuring out a combination that works for me. But unfortunately that may mean a wig for me. I would love to have hair. If could have that curly hair i wouldn’t get rid of the length. I would at least donate it to those who lose their hair due to medical issues. Like cancer patients. Locks of love is a great place to donate especially 8 inches.

In 50 years they will have their own town!And not all of them are going to be loving and responsible when they grow up. I hope all of the abuse this has put on her body doesn’t shorten her life.

    Michelle looks gorgeous and so young! Wow! Michelle has moved into a new stage of life. A new look is just the “pick me up” some women need when the child bearing stage has passed. Michelle loved bringing children into the world. I won’t speak for God, but Jim & Michelle know the severe threat another pregnancy poses to Michelle’s & a new baby’s life. Their youngest daughter is blessed to be alive. Now they are walking into a new stage of life: watching all the grandchildren be born and raised by their amazing children. Passing the torch can be difficult.

    Everyone women strongly feels the need for change at some point in life. Mine came at the 50 year birthday. Took control of my weight problem and had a make over. Noone could hardly recognize me. Looked better than I ever did my whole life.

    Anyone who critizes other people lives is suffering from jealously, anger management problems or just a plain old mean spirit. Take a hard look at your own life first and correct your own troubles.

    She looks lovely. It is sad that some of the responders had such ugly things to say about Michelle. The number of children they have is their own business. They support themselves and do not depend on others or the government. She is a good mother and God has blessed her. The ugly remarks are made by people who must be missing a lot in their life.

    Michelle looks younger like this. I think it’s very respectful and I admire her for wanting to ONLY impress her husband. That is a true Christian wife for you. But, she needs to like it to wear it. I’ve loved her curly hair. Mine is perfectly straight and I’d love to have her curls and color. This family is amazing and I will forever be their fan. I met most of them once and they are “the real deal”.

    I think the straight hair does make her look younger and more attractive. At a certain age long hair and perms make a woman look frumpy and when the longer hair is super curly and the bangs are straight it just looks fake. Don’t go back because of Jim Bob’s tastes, he is just used to the old look, he will adjust and besides he should and I know he does love her for what she is inside which is a beautiful loving soul.

  138. Robin Says:

    Michelle is a beautiful person NO matter which hair style she wears! And for all those folks making nasty comments about her wanting to please Jim Bob, or them adding another brat into this world, well you folks just don’t get it. They are living what Christ called us all to do and are not only blessed, but are a blessing to others. I love this family!

    Sorry – I think this woman and her husband are two irresponsible, disgusting people. I think having this amount of children is self-serving since once the first four or five start growing up they wind up caring for the rest of the brood. I do not believe for one minute they do not get help…with the economy as it is, I know people with few children have problems. What income do they have for the trips they have taken (paid by the network is still taking “help”….put the brood out there and pay us for the episodes. I think they are phonies and having figured out how all these kids can make life easier for them they decided to go for it….the certainly do not pay taxes with all those deductions. In order to clothe these children, have sheets for them,school supplies have to cost a fortune…or do the younger kids wear hand me downs from the older ones really caring and raising them. I would never watch this show as I find this couple utterly disgusting….they have no real sense of responsibility…They feel this is what the lord gives them…hogwash…By the way what is the condition of this 19th child? If you do not agree with me do not bother to bash me….since you have the right not to agree just as I have the right to feel like I do.

Kids require time, love, and attention as well as emotional and monetary support. How do you provide all of these for this many children? Who’s watching the kids while all the sex is going on? At the end of the day, it’s her uterus. I could not pass up the welfare comment.

    Her hair looks wonderful. If you watch the show you see how happy and healthy all the children are.

    It is neither dysfunctional nor codependent to want to please one’s spouse with one’s appearance. Rather, it leads to having a happy marriage.

    I am a male and I am deplored at the negative comments by some of the narrow-minded women criticizing Michelle on here. I thought it was all about choice? As far a the family being able to pay for themselves, they made sure before the even were considered for a tv show that they would be self-sufficient. Its none of any of you negative nancies how much money they make or how much they have. They have learned to save and have the ability to flourish even in the midst of a bad economy. You negative nancies are just jealous. I don’t agree with their personal approach to Christianity but as so much of liberated women like to state, we shouldn’t judge. How convenient it is when you “liberated women” are presented with a different perspective than yours for you to lash out. The idea that women would be better leaders in the world because there would be less wars is a lie. This post with the negative comments against Michelle prove how vindictive some women are.

    I like the straight hair on Michelle. As for those people who are “disgusted” by her wanting to please her husband, there is nothing wrong with that. She has her own brain, and she is a strong, seemingliy nice person. She also seems to be very intelligent. I challenge any of you to juggle home schooling, child care, a husband, a tv show, and public speaking to help other people make better people of themselves.. I doubt you could handle it. She is a good hearted woman, and her hubby seems to be a good hearted man. If they want to please each other, they must really love each other. More power to them! I am sure God is on their side…

    I love it! I love her and I think her and her family are great. She looks younger and I say it’s about time she does something for herself! And I do not think it’s weird that she wants to make sure her husband likes it. It’s a little old fashioned for women to consider what their husbands like when it comes to their own fashion and look, but it works. Notice how they have 19 kids and still love each other? Maybe instead of thinking bad about it,people should consider their own lives first. I think the Duggars are awesome.

But for the most part I do what I want when it comes to my hair it grows back. I say Michelle do your hair the way you or Jim Bob want it. I think the new do fits you very well. (:

    The god talk is disgusting. And it’s the religious folks that see nothing wrong with this situation. This woman has no independence, privacy or real life. It is not the husband who is suffering the risks of pregnancy and childbirth at an advanced age. I doubt the daughters will pursue careers. No, I am not some feminazi like one person wrote. I am a happily married mother of 2 teenagers.

    The Duggars are the Taliban side of America.
    And yes, the hair is a 100 times better straight, more modern. The other hair is tacky. Why do these people want to live in the 1800s?

  174. Elsa Says:

    I don’t have a problem with her hoping that her husband likes her hair, because she wants to please him. He is her boyfriend and she is his girlfriend, and what dating couple doesn’t try to please the other? If you didn’t present an appearance that was attractive to the other, probably the other would be gone soon. That doesn’t mean he dictates to her. It just means she hopes he likes it. Some of you are overreacting to her statement, interpreting it as some sort of oppression/submission. I don’t see it like that at all, and I’m the first one to protect women’s rights to do what they want. It’s also her right to try to be attractive to the man she loves. I’m sure he hopes she likes his appearance, too.

  175. fireoasis Says:

    wow the mean things said here are scary. How in the world can you dislike this family? I personally could not have that many children, and I am not a religious person, but this family had many kids LONG before they were offered a TV show. They have never asked the government to pay their bills. If they have the means to raise that many children then no one has the right to judge them. We have the right to say that it may not be for us, but we do not have the right to say they should not do it. They are have raised fairly polite, considerate, reasonable, responsible children. Which is better then quite a few other people can say. Their way may not be the ONLY way but it works for them and no one has the right to judge them. As for her hair, it is lovely on her. Hoping that her husband will like it is NATURAL. I don’t think any wife gets her hair done and says, “I hope my husband hates it” and if she does, she usually heading for a divorce. People really need to back off these people and worry about their own problems.

    oh my goodness. You ladies have never worn that green shirt/little black dress/tight jeans because your man liked it? I know all of you have at one point or another! Why? Because as humans we gather enjoyment from pleasuring our mates. She knows that he thinks she tends to look better with long hair, so she mostly keeps it long, because she could prob care less but likes to see him smile. Just like you dress up for date night, or down for a romantic evening in. You know what your partner prefers to see so you take that into consideration!

    As for the 19 kids thing that’s her choice. I don’t agree with her parenting style fully. But it’s her family not mine.

    For the record I’m a 29yr old mother of 5, 3 of whom I’ve given birth to, 1 of which is special needs, I’ve had 12 misscarriages also. I’m not in debt at all, we don’t have a tv show, I’m ‘legaly’ a midget, oh and I’m a pagan :)

    The kind, clear and thoughtful interactions of all these family members is a delight to watch!!

    This family is such a fantastic Role Model for America. Not the Rapper trash that is spewed constantly in our Media as though bling, drugs, guns and sleez is to be emulated.

If more families were as loving, thoughtful, giving (not only to each other, but to the community!), the world would be a better place! True, the DO make $$ from the TV show, but they do know how to stretch a dollar and provide on their own.

    Anyone who has negative comments about this family and their “irresponsibillity” with the amount of children they have needs a life. The way these kids are raised, their beliefs, and kind hearts will hopefully even slightly make this world a better place.

    There are enough people out there who are more “reasonable” or “responsible” with the amount of children they bring into the world and do not take care, nurture, or instill any valuable beliefs into their lives. They just breed. If the Duggar’s have this many kids and have the time to raise them and built their hearts with such love for God and each other, everyone else who doesn’t do this and has a lesser brood should feel disgusted. Leave this family alone.

    I like the new hairdo, but there are more pressing concerns in her life. I wonder about having so many kids that she doesn’t have time to be involved with each of them individually – especially since she always has a new baby to tend to. The kids live in an institutional setting with all the girls in one room and all the boys in another, and with each younger kid paired with an older kid who is really the one taking care of them day to day. It’s not fair to saddle the older kids with raising the younger ones. But my biggest concern is that, by insisting upon continuing to try to have more babies, she is putting her OWN life in danger. THAT is the real irresponsibility here. By deliberately putting her own life in danger, she is putting all those kids in danger of being motherless, which would be disaster w/ that many kids. The kids would resent her emphasis on always having to have a NEW child instead of taking care of the ones she already has. She seems addicted to the attention she gets when pregnant and the thrill of a new baby, to the point where she’s willing to risk leaving 19 kids motherless. That is VERY selfish. So while she looks unselfish, her addiction to having a new baby is extremely selfish and if it leads to her death, will sow seeds of anger and bitterness in the children she already has. It’s a disaster waiting to happen unless she puts an end to it. God has told her to stop by showing her that her body can no longer do this. She needs to listen!

All you left leaning, libbers, just show your total lack of sensible understanding when you offer such limited understanding by your sarcastic and demeaning complaints.

    Overpopulation is a serious threat to this earth. The earth has finite resources ie. water, oil, gas, land for agriculture, etc. and when they become scarce maybe people will realize how overpopulation really affects everyone. So when the egotistical and self-serving Duggars choose to have 19 children, yes, it is my business, for me, my children and my grandchildren. I have one child; the Duggar children will use 19x the earth’s resources than mine. And their progeny will use expodentially that much more. Are all you people nuts not thinking that the numbe of children someone has does not affect everyone on this earth. BTW, illegal immigrants do not even come into the picture, I am talking global overpopulation, not US overpopulation.

I dress and do things to please my hubby of 23 years! That is whom I should be pleasing. So Michelle sounds like she is taking care of business. Good for her. Keep the marriage fresh! And if they want a hundred kids, so what. They are taking care of that too. As long as they are not asking for help or handouts, kids are healthy, happy, the man is happy and in his own home with his family, well more power to them. May God continue to bless them!

    Why should she get on birth control? If people cant seem to get their teens on it why should a parent that takes care of their kids and is not on welfare? They provid for all their children and teach them good moral and values. If she wants to have more children it is their choice not ours. We should all learn from them and try to follow the Lord instead of pointing the finger. There is no reason why she should be concidered selfish bcause she does a pretty darn job taking care of everyone. Her children are taught to be loving, caring, and respectful there is no reason why they should have any negative feelings from them. We need more families like the Duggars. In order for peopl to understand why they ar the way they are you would have to accept Jesus in your life and I do not mean just claim you do but actually do it.

    Michelle Duggar will probably be excommunicated form her new “do”. I don’t think they’re allowed to do anything attractive. Also…I sincerely believe she’s insane.

  200. Betty Morgan Says:

    Michelle’s hairdo is very becoming on her. Now what she really needs is a wardrobe makeover as I for one am tired of seeing her in those maternity tops. She needs something more stylish.

  201. Jenny Says:

    Michelle and her girls have their hair permed to make it curly. Their hair is NOT naturally curly. They regularly take extra time and expense to get it that way. curly, straight, wavy… all beautiful in their own way, ya’ll. Just get the facts straight (pun intended)!

    As to personal feelings about the ‘do (the only thing the article explicitly invited), I’m actually a bit conflicted. The super straight look, when long, looks ‘older’ to me… but the fuller bangs accompanying the second style look more youthful.

    I think she’d look younger–all around–with complete bangs (or a larger sweep of bangs with a dramatic side part) and either wavy long hair or bobbed (no higher than chin level, no longer than brushing the shoulders) straight hair.

    Youthful/older looking… whichever style… I think she is a beautiful lady and I could only hope to age so gracefully.

    I think she looks so pretty, and yes much younger. If more mom and dad’s would care about their children the way the Dugger’s do, we would not have so many juveniles and evil in our world.

    Cannot imagine what this woman is thinking.

    You can not be a caring and nurturing parent to 19 kids. It is criminal to bring so many children into the world of neglect. I’m sure the children have to parent each other. Her and her husband should be in jail and their kids should sue them for extreme neglect and abuse.

    The losers posting all the negativity are malcontents in life who are jealous of decent people like the Dugger’s. It’s no one’s business how many children the Dugger’s have because they’re the only ones who are caring and paying for them. Worry about the generations of families who live on Welfare and only have more children to get a bigger check. Focus your energy on that Reality-Tester. As for Michelle’s hair, it looks nice both ways, but the straight style does make her look younger and prettier.

Now for the comments about their income..that is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS how they feed their family… I take it that they were able to pay their bills and feed their babes long before the program came to them… as I am sure they tithe to the Lord (church) he always supplies…And when u give he gives in return in many different ways… So please STOP criticizing this family…Stop being JEALOUS and let them live their lives..I am sure they have income from other avenues…Possibly rentals or home sales..It doesn’t matter how they do it…THE LORD PROVIDES FOR THEM….Lord bless you sister Michelle.

    I remember liking the curls more…but then i started reading comments. I am so glad that Mrs. Duggar is willing to show the world that there are large christian families in this world. I married my husband years ago. He told me that if he hadnt married into my family he would have only had one or two children. (i was number six of 8) my sister and brother have each been blessed with seven and the Lord has blessed my family with six. If there is no one to show the world what a christian looks like than how will they know? As for overpopulation. I agree. the world is overpopulated with inconsiderate, selfish people because their mother didnt put their husbands before them and they ended up being single parents raising whatever number of children. (leaving their children to be raised by the world) However there is A GREAT SHORTAGE of true christians who can see the greater picture.

    I think the new hair is nice but it certainly doesn’t fool me into thinking that’s the only thing she changed about herself. The nose job and face lift is quite obvious. I’m not necessarily against cosmetic surgery, but it’s quite hypocritical for her in particular, considering her beliefs.

    Amazes me how so many think their daughters “need”
    their hair changed also. I would rather have a well adjusted child then one the public “thinks” is pretty anytime. What is between the ears is more important then what covers them. And I think the article was about her hair anyway. I truly believe that parents that can raise 19 well adjusted, healthy, show some respect children can surely decide when they need haircuts. I think they are extraordinary people doing a wonderful job of parenting. If you disagree, fine. Then you have 19 children and we’ll compare your talents in the parenting abilities and see who wins. She looks great.

    It’s odd that liberal, “emancipated” women are also some of the most narrow-minded women that i have ever had to deal with; even my own sister. for some reason, if you don’t “choose” to be like them, you are either abused, beat-down, or you are “stupid” and narrow-minded. My mom was the main income for our family; I have worked since i was 12, and NO ONE has ever paid my way. When I decided to change my work so that I could stay home with my kids, I suddenly lost about 50 IQ points as well as suddenly being considered some kind of “religious fanatic”-it’s so funny, if you choose a lifestyle that they approve of-lets say that as a mom, I stayed home while my WIFE went to work-that would be applauded, but doing the same thing with my husband, well that is wrong.

    May 11th, 2013 at 12:08 am

    I love the new do. As for the negative comments, even though there are 19 children, I have never heard the children spew jealousy, hatred, etc., that some of these people on here have posted. So obviously, something was done right in this household and we can sure tell how some of the people (haters) on here was raised and I’ll just take a guess that they (haters) was raised in a home with far less kids, so why bash the Duggars. Obviously the haters were not raised in a loving home. As for them wearing hand-me-down and thrift store clothes, so what? At least they do not believe in filling a landfill with still usable clothes. If you have ever been in a thrift or second-hand store, you will find clothes that are just like new. No disgrace in that and heaven forbid that the Duggars try to save money whenever possible. I’ll bet the Duggars have more money in savings than others on here have. And as for them making money from tv, they are doing what it takes to raise a family. They have been on air for what–7 years or so, and guess what? They had quite a few children before the show and you know what? They still provided for all the kids and still not taking any assistance from the government. So what if the house may have been comped? If we were all in the same situation, wouldn’t we have taken the comp too? As for the clothes (dresses) they wear. I would rather my daughter wear what they wear than what I see millions of girls wear (or don’t wear). They are only asking for trouble. If you don’t like the show, don’t watch it. I have enough sense to know not to watch a show I don’t like. It only stresses a person out and then you become bitter. Get the point. The only reality shows I watch are the Duggars and Duck Dynasty. On Duck Dynasty they don’t cuss, fight, etc. that are on the other reality shows. Oh and by the way, on Duck Dynasty, they pray. Maybe if you don’t like the Duggars, you can watch Duck Dynasty. Oh what was I thinking? Praying and living as a Christian does not fit your lifestyle.

    I don’t get this family at all, and for the most part, I am a “live and let live” kind of person. But I want to say something to those who don’t understand why people criticize them for so many children:

    1. When the Bible said “Go forth and multiply,” it was referring to a time in history when there were far fewer people on the earth AND medical advancements didn’t exist, so half or more of babies born did not survive to adulthood. Obviously, we live in a different era.

    2. Bringing that many new lives into a world with so many orphans is irresponsible (and hypocritical for such professed Christians) on two levels. First, they are not in any way “caring for the least of these,” as in, children without families.

    Second, the carbon footprint of such an enormous family is huge, and in this age of an overpopulated earth, that is irresponsible.

    3. Without parading their children on “reality TV,” they’d have a much more difficult time affording to care for this family on their own. I realize they are not using gov. assistance (except, you know, the many tax deductions, etc. they have), but without the exhibitionism of forcing their children to live in the public eye, they wouldn’t get big portions of their housing construction comped.

    4. They may be a lovely family with morals, but she is a only a good role model for her daughters if they plan to live exactly as she has. If they get out into the wider world, she has modeled for them that submitting to men is the way women are supposed to live – and that worries me greatly for her daughters. And the sons, well, they’ll believe that women were made to submit to them. I’m thinking the world doesn’t need more of that.

    she looked natural in the pic on the left. why mess with natural looks. and the color was gorgeous prestylist. was the stylist just experimenting some new technique, i say get a new stylist. and quick.

    I think Michelle’s new hair looks GREAT. My wife always asks me before she gets a different hairstyle. If I don’t like it she won’t get it. While I don’t ask her to do that she does it out of respect for me, which is what a Christian woman should do. Michelle is absolutely right in wanting her husband to like her hair. According to the Bible, a woman is supposed to please her husband. It is her job to keep her husband from straying and finding another woman. If more women did this there would be a lot less adultery & fornication in this world, and we certainly need less of that. I don’t know how many of you that made the negative comments have watched the show but if I remember right they had about 16 or 17 kids when the show started. As several on here have said they didn’t get any government assistance before the show started and they don’t now. Everyone who has kids gets deductions on their Federal Tax Return for each of their kids so I don’t see what the problem is there. If you’re telling me that you wouldn’t take the deduction(s) for your child, or children, then I’d have to say that you are either weird or lying. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with being a car salesman as long as you are a Godly car salesman so people should STOP harping on that. Yes, the older kids do help take care of the younger ones but that is Biblical. If you would read your Bible you would understand this. However, if you are not saved by the grace of God you wouldn’t understand it anyway. If you just read the Bible when you are not saved you are just reading a bunch of words. They were spiritually inspired and they have to be spiritually discerned. That’s why I say you have to be saved (washed in Jesus’s blood) to be able to understand the TRUE meaning of God’s Word. The Dugger’s should be allowed to have as many children as they wish. Everyone else does. Why should they be any different? Just because they have 19 already shouldn’t make any difference. I hate it when people make comments about things that they do NOT know anything about. I have seen several comments on here that have said “I know” they receive government assistance. Let me ask you this: How do you know? Do you know them personally? If not then don’t make comments you know nothing about.

    All of these negative comments make me sad. The family is being judged for what..choosing to have a lot of children? All children are a blessing. As previous posters have mentioned, the Duggars aren’t relying on government assistance to raise their children. Have you negative commenters ever watched the show? If so, you would realize how respectful, kind, and giving the children are. They (like their parents) are passionate about helping others. I wish there were more people in the world like the Duggars. Also, regarding the girls clothes…they are not bad. They may not be the trendiest, but there is nothing wrong with them. Would you rather your children wear “cool” clothing just to fit in? I admire the Duggars and think that they are great role models? In the trashy reality shows that we have on TV, the Duggars set themselves apart. A class act.

    There will always be hateful trolls in this world. Unmarried/divorced women who have no idea what true love is (putting others before yourself) and whining about being alone. As a giver, I understand how much joy Michelle gets from sharing and respecting her husband/kids. Her children emulate her and I’m sure give her any “alone” time she might need. As an earlier poster noted “I would rather see a family of 19 well-behaved children brought into this world than watch ANOTHER self-absorbed welfare mother NOT raise the one child I have to support with my hard earned tax dollars. God bless that family, what an inspiration. You haters/trolls enjoy all those ugly thoughts that I doubt keep you warm at night.

    the stress load, time load, housework, feeding and cleaning up after everybody, dealing with so many different personalities, dealing with a houseload of disgruntled and needy teens, and the big financial load and needed space to house everybody must be horrendious!
    It’s not all peaches and whip cream with a cherry on top.
    By marrying my husband, we formed a blended family of 9 children. It was a challenge and responsibility and financial burden, I took on. I am glad I could help and guided so many children, and I learned a lot. But never would I want to go through that intense, emotional mess again!
    Of course, It would be different if all the children came from the same two parents. In our situation, there were three mothers and five fathers involved. My husband and I gathered all the scattered kids up and formed our blended family. None of the other mothers or fathers involved contributed one cent. Nor did they show much of an interest in guiding and raising any of them!
    Lets face facts. It is impossible for one or two people to give great quality care and needed attention to so many children. Surely they have lots of outside help’
    At one time the single mother of 14 kids was getting $10,000. worth of come in help a month.
    Who helps these people? She can’t do all that needs to be done all by herself.
    Stress levels can get high at times dealing so closely with so many people under one roof. Remember A Y, mother of six young, beautiful children that she methodically drowned.
    If Duck Dynasty main characters are getting over $400.000.00 each per show!!! and asking for more! How much $ does this family get per show? Astronomical! The show has been going on for 7-8 years running. It’s no wonder why they can have a big new house, cars, campers, plenty of food, clothes and family trips. With that kind of money rolling in on a regular basis, they can comfortably afford many things.
    Are they having so many children to keep the tv show running, and the fame and money flowing in, or do they really think they should have as many children as they can possible have??
    J B give your little wife a break, and stop causing he to get pg. She and her body needs to have a rest and re-cooperation. You already have more than enough children to take care of for the next 20 years per child. Be wise, concentrate on what you two already have happening.
    I knew a lady with 8 children, and her husband abandoned the family. It was too much work and worry for her to take care of by herself. So she had to divide all of her children up amongst all of her relatives so she could work and try to make money to help support them. (before the welfare program that is available today to some people.

    To all the negative commentators and those who assume they know how Michelle’s life goes, here the bottom line and the proof of the TRUTH; this woman is GLOWING! She is happy and content – look at her eyes. She is well loved too, you can see it in the way she carries herself. And she is exercising HER right to do AS SHE sees fit with HER BODY! And to think, not 50 years ago women were fighting for the right of a woman to do just THAT. You bunch of intolerant HYPOCRITES! You’re tolerant of other views just so long as everyone thinks like YOU. I see right now exactly why your fellas are hopping like fleas onto other pooches and quite frankly, I can’t say that I blame them.

There are people that have one child and wish that they could do so well, but don’t. so, they must be doing something right,huh . I would love to be able to meet them, and be around all that love. It has to have a wonderful effect on you!

    Michelle Duggar looks absolutely stunning with curly hair or straight hair. I think just straightening her bangs will work when she is in a rush. Straightening long curly thick hair takes too much time. The size of her family is ecologically irresponsible. Even if they go green, (which driving Hummers isn’t) they still leave a huge carbon footprint. In biblical times, overpopulation, pollution and the life of the planet were not an issue. The Bible says a lot of things that are redundant in today’s world. People shouldn’t wear mixed fabric clothes (polyester/cotton) plant two crops in one field, and man should not lay with donkeys. (Who was doing this to even need it written down as God’s word)? The buddy system and distribution of chores is very unfair to the older girls. They did not choose to have children, yet they raise Michelle’s babies from the time they are weaned, giving Jim and Michelle opportunity to create more children, without allowing Michelle’s body time to heal from the last birth. She is going to breed herself into an early grave. Being totally self sufficient is wonderful, but the impact of the washer and dryer constantly going, and driving huge vehicles to transport their huge family is ecologically damaging. Live your life to the word of God as you interpret it, but you cannot completely deny that it is a totally different world than it was when the Bible is written. Your love of God will mean nothing to your grandchildren if they have to wear gas masks to even go outside, because you chose to have a huge family to take more than your fair share of the world’s resources.

I dress to please my husband as well as myself. Most of us dress and style to please others. And while I personally would not want 19 children, if I fight for my reproductive rights, that includes hers as well! They seem to be a couple genuinely in love, they are not hurting anyone and they have a happy life! I don’t see how that can be a bad thing!

I hope I can be more like her one day, INCLUDING wanting to IMPRESS her husband!! I love that she still wants to impress him–shows that they are still in love with each other.

They were not asking anyone for help, they had everything in perfect order. I’m sure the show is helping out…call it another blessing for an already blessed family…this is what happens when you put God first…you get blessed. Each and every one of The Duggars express nothing but genuine happiness…such a beautiful family.

    First of all the article asks what do you think or do you like her haircut, so for all the extra negative commenting you are definitely being completely unecessary, also for those of you who don’t get the concept of marriage….ask yourself this when you are initially on the “hunt” or in search of a soulmate or during the dating phase you do your best in every way to look good for them dress how they like, look how they like in order to please them…so why in marriage should that be different you should prob take notes seeing that she is still happily married and still in love, and lastly, really ppl, she should stop having kids hmmmm, she has raised 19 well respected God fearing loving awesome children not dependent on the government but from the simple principles of working hard and Christian living and yet that’s not good enough, I bet if it was 19 hoodlums u guys would be all for it, that’s so backwards and ignorant, some of you really need to re access your values or what you stand for I really understand if you’re not big on lots of kids however to completely dog someone else especially when they clearly exemplify the qualities of a responsible loving mother/family is just over the top aweful.com!!!!!!

    As for Michelle’s hair, I think it looks great. She is a naturally beautiful woman, and this look is current without being flashy. It suits her. I wonder if it saves more time wearing it straight? With 19 kids, time saving would be a bonus!

I too, would do many things within reason to keep the love of my life happy. Thats what a good, loving relationship does. And yes…I am a sinner who lost the love of my life because I wasn’t what his family wanted for him. I wish nothing but the best for your family and please pay no mind to the nay-sayers and maybe keep someone like me in your prayers (cryingnow). I did what I could to keep my ex (I am hot, but apparently too hot). I even cut off 9 inches of hair to prove I loved him. He left anyways 3 months later. I’m pathetic. You and Jim-Bob are wonderful.

    I absolutely love Michelle’s new hairstyle. Her new look is a breath of fresh air! She’s a very attractive lady to begin with, but the shorter, straight style makes her look 10 years younger…and her hair must feel so much lighter now. I understand Michelle wanting to “please” Jim~Bob, but at the same time…she has kept the hairstyle he’s loved for the past 40 years! Isn’t it time for Michelle to wear her hair the way SHE wants? Absolutely!!! I do think it’s time for all the older girls to also get “makeovers” too. They do a great deal to help their parents out, and should be rewarded with some new clothes or a more stylish hairdo. Those simple things will boost their confidence so much. I watch the show as often as I can, and at first I thought anyone who had that many children was crazy…but they are so loving and kind to one another, even the little ones are taught to help out at a very young age. More families can learn by their example. The Lord is at the center of their lives and God has blessed them ten-fold b/c they give back to their community + help those that are less fortunate. I see a lot of families with just 1 or 2 children, and often times they are all screwed up. These kids all seem to be well rounded, well educated, well behaved and very responsible. They all work together, play together + pray together and all their hard work comes through week after week on their show. One last comment-I think that Michelle + Jim~Bob should go out weekly or bi-monthly on a “date night”, where they can share a quiet dinner and a few hours away from the family. They too need time alone to “talk” and “appreciate what one another does for the other”. The show doesn’t show that if they do

    @ realitycheck, why are you bringing race into this? When did it become a racial debate on who gets welfare more or who commits most crimes? Welfare is there to transition you into work while you are out of work and help families. Food stamps is to help families who cannot otherwise afford the amount of food their family needs. It only becomes frustrating when the tax payers pay for lazy people who do not want to get a job and make excuses to not work. Depression should not be a reason not to work. Get some meds if needed and feel good about yourself for having a job. And crime is crime and wrong no matter who does it.

Envy? parroting some other comments? Those comments would be acceptable if ONLY they were on welfare and you were paying for them, but they aren’t.

    Absolutely beautiful! Michelle is such a beautiful person and her beauty comes from within. Her comment on trying to please Jim Bob is a lesson to us all. How many marriages end in divorce because we put ourselves first. Jim Bob and Michelle have always and with joy ,met each other more than half way. Adopt the behaviors to please yourself before your spouse. You just might be pleasing yourself alone. I was not a Christian when I started watching the re-runs of this show. Like my many of my friends ,I felt the Duggars were exploting their children for monetary gains. After watching the show and seeing the shining light that came from each and every memeber of this amazing family I began to question my walk with God. I was in a very bad place, addicted to drugs and alcohol and defintely hopeless and helpless. At first ,I had objections to the Duggar way of life but I could not stop watching. Little by little I realized the Duggers were using the televison media to witness for God. It was not about money but about their genuine love of the Lord. The happiness of that family has nothing to do with money. They could live in a dumpster on the side of a highway and they would deal with it as a family and be grateful for what they had. I could see that the Christian way of life was not only rewarding but essential to a happy life. The natural beauty of ever single member of that family is a testiment to what the love of the Lord can do. I cannot say that The Duggars singlehandly brought me to the Lord but in seeing them I wanted what they had. I was finally Baptised at the age of 50 and having a heavenly Father to turn to has been my salvation. It was the best day of my life. I think that the individuals that critize the show absolutely cannot believe their eyes. It is hard to fathom such honesty,love and selflessness that abounds in the Duggar household. I was a hardcore party girl so it was difficult to get to me. At first I looked at the show and laughed and critized but I was pulled in, I could not stop watching . I was drawn to the wonderful life that all of us are privy to if we trust in the Lord. Jim Bob and Michelle have a beautiful relationship with not only each other but with their family and anyone that they meet along the way. You can laugh at this if you like. I have been married six times. The common denominator in all the marriages was the exclusion of God. The marriages were so unhappy ,so selfcentered, and without any attention to the power of the Lord in a relationship that they were doomed from the start. I have no children , no grandchildren from any of the relationships. How sad I am for that. I certainly have nothing negative to say about the way Jim Bob and Michelle conduct their marriage. I wish I HAD worn my hair to please my husband. Before you critize the Duggar’s ask yourself “how’s my marriage going”?

    I read the why of all the children and guilt is not a good reason to have children. The whole philosophy is rather crazy. In saying that if they chose to have children because they want a large family and they can and do support them that’s their choice. How crazy is it that in my school curriculum in the first half of the 1970′s we had have only two children shoved down our throats and we bought into this propaganda? I think at the very least we should talk with our children and have more influence than public school and better yet home school if possible. In the olden days children worked with their parents and learned from them and children were truly a valued part of the family. Hair is notthe most important thing in life do they have to prove that by taking what God gave them and making the worst of it? God gave us hair and nothing is wrong with wanting to be attractive and quite honestly the choppy haircuts of Michelle and her daughters drove me crazy and took away from their message. Michelle looks tasteful and quite pretty now, now if we can first get her daughter in law to get a balanced haircut and proper shampoo an conditioner for her oily hair and cut her hair by a professional who could fix that her bangs are not balanced or cut correctly and they overpower the rest of her one length hair. It looks like she wacked her bangs off and kept adding hair into her bangs each time. She simply needs to integrate into a haircut where she has less amount of hair in her bangs and add those bangs into some layers gradually making her hair balanced and her bangs totally integrated into the rest of her hair which will also make her hair look less oily because she will be able to brush it instead of just combing her bangs and pinning the rest of her hair back away from her bangs which exposes the oiliest part of her hair, the roots. She does not have stick straight hair and cannot carry off this years popular do with bangs and one length straight cut hair. She needs to have layering which will add bounce, NO razor should cut her curly hair, she should have a cut with someone who knows how to cut curly hair and pull the hair straight when it is cut and add long layers and for Heavens sake start balancing the bangs into the rest of her hair til finally she can get those bangs as long as her shortest layers in her hair so she can brush through it. She can still pull her hair back as a busy Mom but look good when she looks in a mirror and have a little self esteem. Actually having a good cut will then take her less time to fix her hair, a good cut will do that. The daughters, again quit with the bangs and long hair and go for balance, spend the money, it doesn’t cost a lot to get a decent haircut that does not need cut every couple of months unless there hair cuts are now so bad it takes trims every few months to fix what I am assuming an untrained person did when they cut there hair. It is not worldly to have a decent hair cut. Please allow those women to get haircuts that doesn’t look they were father said cut their hair to make them look ugly and as long as it is long and ugly then they will be safe. THAT is not normal. They have what looks like great hair to start with. The daughter in law needs to deal with her oily hair and over washing is not the answer, she needs to go to a trained cosmetologist to find answers. The daughters hair is healthy and shiny and some wave and some have curl. I blame their father for their bad hair cuts. Is he afraid to bring out there natural beauty? It makes me think badly of him to see his daughters this way. If he is afraid to allow his daughters to have a good haircut because men might look at them, he must have that tendency himself to think all men are like that. If his daughters are permitted to have decent hair cuts, I will say it again, they are less likely with good self esteem to not fall for the first man who says they look pretty when they obviously are not as long as their hair looks like it was chopped into large chunks of bangs with the rest untouched. When I look at the father on the tv show, he seems to me to be fake. Michelle should be standing up for her daughters. If allowed to change their hair, perhaps they will be happier and not fall for the first man of the church they follow instead of a Godly man with good morals who also LOVES them. Sorry for going on but the hair Michelle had, her daughter in law has as does Michelle’s daughter have IS distracting. They can have long hair that is cut correctly and I promise they won’t go to hell for that.

    I agree with TC
    I do not get how people say it is irresponsible for them to have as many children as they do. They do not take food stamps, they are not taking rent assistance, they are not on medicaid or whatever it may be called in their state. Michelle is frugal with money, and Jim Bob works hard doing what he needs to do to EARN their money. They also – SURPRISE! – help many others, as that is what the Lord tells them to do. So their own children see them working hard, making ends meet and relying upon themselves, and that is what they will do when they go out into the world. Not rely upon taxpayers to pay their bills, or pay for their lives.

I admire the Duggars so much; the kids are all well behaved, at least on camera; am sure like all kids, there are times…but I think Michelle had done a great job with them.

    My husband and I respect each other as human beings and that’s how it should be. He likes to impress me as I like to impress him …. it has nothing to do with SHOULD OBEY … I don’t think I’ve ever met a “christian” who claims what you’re CLAIMING.

    Her hair looks nice.

    And whoever thinks they do not wear make up on that show is mistaken, the older girls do and Michelle wears a little make up too.

    The thing I do not like about the show is the editing, I recall one episode where one of the youngest daughters was carrying, what was then, the youngest girl ( not Josie, she was not born yet) but that little girl carried her baby sister and dropped her into a hard plastic wheelbarrow, okay that had to hurt and they immediately put another scene in. It is obvious that baby sister got hurt and had to be wailing, yet they took it out, why? Same with when that same little sister, I think it was her, whipped her brother in the eye with a rubber snake and they immediately put in another scene where you saw the brother laying on a bed, back to the camera, the older sister was telling that little sister to apologize to him. If you want to do a reality show, show reality, not cleaned up scenes to make it look like these children are not the same as other kids who act out.

    I also find Michelle and Jim Bob hypocritical, in their old shows for the opening scenes you would see pics of the family and Michelle speaking about who everyone was and giving insight into what their family was about, she said the kids do no watch tv, implying it I bad, okay if it is so bad, why be on it? To make money? That is hypocritical, wouldn’t that make the money they earn from it ( which is a lot of money, Michelle is listed as producer and they have book deals too), but wouldn’t that make the money bad?

    I think they are a nice enough family, but I think they edit things out to make them seem more perfect than they are, which is so fake, be real. You never even see Michelle and Jim Bob getting into arguments, come on! I know they have to fight, they are not flawless and perfect and Michelle has that wrinkle between her brows, that is only created by making an angry face and heyyy we all make that face.

    I personally like Little People/Big World and The Little Couple, they keep it real, they show their flaws and fights etc as well as I am impressed at how well these families are doing on their own merits and ingenuity. Their shows are learning tools in the respect that they show that just because you do not look like most people it does not mean you are really that different, they allow others to see how actually all of us are alike in more ways than we think and it is interesting and uplifting to see the struggles Little People go through, yet they do succeed and have wonderful dispositions even when life is not that easy.

    And the Duggars should be saying how lucky they are to be on television which has given them the opportunity to make a lot of money, get their home remodeled and furnished, for free, allowed them to travel all over the world and overall given them a comfortable lifestyle, I sure would not be biting the hand that fed me by saying television is bad.

    I think she looks great and appears to be a good mom. The amount of children that she and her husband chose to have is their business and theirs alone. Some of these comments are DISGUSTING. They are a married man and woman providing a supportive loving home for their children teaching them respect, responsibility, and morals. I have a hard time understanding why do so many people seem to have a problem with this…..In a previous job, I have seen junkie whores who have popped out nearly as many children all with different fathers, no stable home and addicted to whatever the moms drug of choice was…seems to me those are the “selfish” women…and the ones who need to be sterilized…..smh

    Here’s a thought to ponder? If the Dugger’s children follow suit and each have 19 children and their children have 19 each and their grandchildren have 19 children each. Guess what? that family in 3 generations will produce 130,321 new people to this earth! I’m sorry, they seem like very nice people, but there has to be a screw loose somewhere.

    September 3rd, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    I am from a family of 15. I just want to slap her when she has the nerve to be so proud of having 19 children. I can speak from experience. SHE IS NOT THE WONDERFUL MOTHER SHE PUTS HERSELF UP TO BE. I WAS BASICALLY FORCED TO BE A MOTHER TO MY YOUNGER SIBLINGS. THERE IS NO WAY SHE CAN BE A GOOD MOTHER TO THAT MANY CHILDREN. SHE NEEDS TO BE HONEST & ADMIT THAT HER OLDER GIRLS TAKE CARE OF “HER KIDS” “FOR HER.” AND HAVE NO CHOICE. I SURE WASN’T INTERESTED IN TAKING CARE OF MY MOTHERS CHILDREN WHEN I WAS 13 YEARS OLD, I WANTED TO BE A CHILD MYSELF INSTEAD OF CHANGING DIAPERS, FEEDING, BATHING & CHASING AFTER 5 OR 6 OF MY YOUNGER SIBLINGS.

  339. vanessa Says:
    September 4th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Yes Ellie I have noticed the older girls do a lot of caring for the younger Duggar children and I am sure it is not that healthy for young children to not get more of their mother’s and father’s attention, these children sure can’t get that one on one times not with so many children needing attention.

    But I am envious of such a large family, the parents will never be put in a nursing home ( they might be moved around from kid to kid, which isn’t so bad either, each child/family will get a break so no one will ever feel over burdened nor stressed out by being the sole caregiver) and there will always be other children for all the nieces and nephews and grand children to play with.

    But to reiterate I don’t like how they edit the show to make it out like Michelle and Jim Bob never raise their voices to their kids, they never fight with each other, the kids never act up, etc sorry I don’t buy it. And I also do not believe not one of those kids have gone through or will go through a rebellious stage.

    Maybe she should do a makeover by dumping the child rearing philosophy espoused by Michael and Debi Pearl “To Train up a Child.” Practice of this type of discipline has lead to at least two deaths and countless abuses. Don’t let her happy, public face fool you. Michelle and Jim Bob Dugger abuse their children!!1

  350. Barb Says:
    September 27th, 2013 at 5:32 am

    She looked 100% better, but she didn’t keep the look long. She went back to her greasy looking curley hair. They all had greasy looking hair until the show started and I guess gave them some hints on how to take care of their hair.
    And yes, it is a shame the older kids take care of the younger kids and have no life of their own. And being home schooled, their education is limited. And the one that is married is starting down the same path. In that big house they have there are 3 bedrooms – one for the parents, one big one for the girls, and one big one for the boys.Michelle has babies, loves them dearly, and then turns them over to the older kids to raise them. The kids do the cooking, laundry, cleaning, and all the other work too.

    Her new look is a vast improvement; the curls dated her. As to all the comments, I strongly believe in doing as you want as long as you do no harm to others. I do not believe 2 parents can give so many children the daily attention they require; these parent obviously rely on the older children to raise the younger. That is not fair to any of the children. It makes the older ones grow up too fast and prevents the younger ones from having the bonding they need with their parents. In the future, I think we will see the damage come out; I just hope it’s in the form of a tell all book rather than destructive self damaging behavior.

Our wold population is growing exponentially to the point that in not too many generations people will outnumber resources. Do you know the likelihood of how many her 19 and their who knows how many who create who knows how many etc., will be in 100 years? It truly is disgusting and irresponsible.

If all these children indulge in the same process they will produce 750,000 (SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND)offspring in FIVE generations. What logic can justify such “God given” insanity. In a planet with population approaching 7 BILLION, this kind of mis-guided thinking IS tantamount to criminality. We all need TWO offspring to preserve the planet for our future generations.

What a bunch of hypocrites calling them out on overproducing! But it’s fine with all the liberals to instead just abort babies that are inconvenient for them?! Wake up people and look in the mirror.

Anyone who wants to make theirselves better for their husbands or vise versa gets my vote. I love this family and I love that they put God first.

    She looks nice. I don’t understand the criticism of her desire to please her husband. My husband pleases me with the haircut he gets and I try to please him with my haircuts. Everyone gonna bad-mouth us now? It’s called loving someone enough to try to look pleasing in their eyes.

    As for the number of children in their family, why should anyone care? They are clearly healthy, happy, well-cared for and responsible youngsters. There was a time when huge families were the norm. But I guess choice only matters when it means tearing a baby limb-from-limb and sucking the parts into a sink.

    Wow – I can’t believe I didn’t know until now that she had changed it. Everyone has their own family values that they feel no one should challenge. She’s an adult and has the right to do what she wants — since her and her husband are in agreement with each other – who should knock it. I agree with Iamfree; it seems it’s ok to do what you want as long as what a person is doing fits your (liberal, conservative, moderate, hell raiser, or fundamental) point of view. I admire this family and hope someday for my own large family to come together with our descendents. I think some people are jealous of the fact that they have some many people to love and who love them — aren’t homeless or on drugs, whose children respect their beliefs and authority. I say “you go girl.”

    Hehe Basil you are funny!!! I do wonder how a normal vah jay jay can handle that many births without suffering some kind of damage or at least intense stretching. I feel bad for Michelle because she very well may suffer prolapse in the years to come from having had so many children. I have a relative who had 6 children, 2 sadly died very soon after birth, but she has prolapse and has to wear a special ring to hold her internal organs up.

    And I cannot believe all these people are positive these kids are just like the edited show shows them to be. I have no doubt they are nice kids, but uhh most kids are nice kids, uhh most parents do raise their children to be kind, respectful, help out others, etc. The Duggers do not have the monopoly on that; with that written, I say show us true reality Duggers, show us the fights the kids get into, yeaaah right 19 kids, a majority of them young teens and younger are not fighting? Are not mean on occasion? Suuuure! They are human with human emotions, they have bad days, get in foul moods! And I know Michelle and Jim Bob have to fight, show me one couple who never fight and I will show you a marriage of convenience, aka not a real marriage, we humans fight, it is not evil or immoral it’s human. We make up, we apologize, we feel bad, but we fight. So show the real Duggers, not the sweet as candy canes, perfect as God family, we want to see the real Duggers, come on!

    Shelooks like she has finally realized we aren’t in the 70s any more though.

    The following are the original questions: “What do you think of Michelle Duggar’s new hairdo? Do you like the curly style or the straight style? Post a comment and tell us what you think.” My answer is: I very much like her new hairdo. I like the straight style more than the curly style. Period. That’s all that was asked, and that’s all that was wanted. To those who felt it necessary to run down everything this family stands for, their appearances, their love of God, etc., I say “Get a life. If you hate this family so much, don’t watch their show and don’t click on pictures that lead to information about them. Otherwise, you might get ulcers or some other debilitating disease just from all that gall you’re swallowing.

SHE LOOKS A HELL OF ALOT BETTER IN OUTER APPEARANCE AND IT’S IMPORTANT TO LOOK AS HEALTHY AND FRESH AS YOU CAN, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN BIRTHING FOR DECADES … IT AGES YOU … AND THIS LOOK IS ALOT MORE APPEALING!!!

    “OK”Michelle didnt(choose)anything!Her stylist “convinced her”to have it cut!!!!”SO,JIM BOB”has nothing to do with it!!!!Some one needs to say,she looks better curly.Straight with no body makes her look gaunt,over worked and 10yrs older.I know most women think curly looks lazy but for some it takes time to take care of it,”DOUBLE THAT TO MAKE IT ~~”STRAIGHT”~~!!!!Curly=(SHE IS BEAUTYFUL TOO!)or more!Her curls give her life and go perfect with her facial structure&smile,she looks like”Amy Grant”by the way,”dont age?!”with her curls&smile(GAAWWD!!!!)”its the clothes people,that dont fit!”UGH!”
