Michelle Duggar Undergoes Mom Makeover

Reality star Michelle Duggar of "19 Kids and Counting" recently got a makeover for the first time in her life. Thanks to her childhood friend Cindy, Duggar lost her curly cut and got a slick modern 'do.

At first, Duggar wasn't sure she was happy about it. Upon seeing her new style, she said, "Wow, it’s definitely different." When asked if she loved it, Duggar said she'd "learn to love it."

And now, it looks as if she really has. Duggar spoke with People magazine about the haircut, which she got as part of her 46th-birthday-party-surprise.

"Going from curly to totally straight was a shock for me," Duggar said, "but I am loving it and I have been doing both styles, curly and straight, since the cut." She said her husband Jim Bob is also adjusting. "I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him -- what he likes is what I want," Duggar said. "I think he was a little shocked at first, it was so straight and so different. But he does like it."

It couldn't have been easy to get a different hairstyle after nearly four decades, but Duggar said she had faith in her friend Cindy. "I can trust Cindy," she said. "But my back was to the mirror and I didn’t know how much I got taken off. It was too funny when I realized how much was gone! And it felt so light."

Michelle and Jim Bob aren't the only ones adjusting. The couple's two-year-old daughter Josie wasn't so sure she liked the change. "Little Josie kept touching my hand and saying, 'Mommy? Mommy? Mommy?'" Michelle said. "She wanted to make sure I was still me."
