The surprise was arranged by some of her 19 children, who enlisted the help of Michelle's childhood friend Cindy to help with the makeover.

When asked whether she "loved" the new look, Michelle said she could "learn to love it." Her husband Jim Bob wasn't enthusiastic either, saying, "I do like it longer."
