Duggar Mom Gets A Makeover On ’19 Kids & Counting’

Duggar mom Michelle got a makeover for her 46th birthday, giving the very busy mother a chance to relax and enjoy herself.

The Duggar mom makeover was featured on the family’s reality show 19 Kids & Counting. Her family brought in childhood friend Cindy to help with the makeover, and Cindy noted that it’s been about 40 years since the Duggar mom tried out a new look, The Huffington Post noted.

For the Duggar mom makeover, Michelle chopped off eight inches of her hair, which she said was the most she ever cut off at one time. She also had her trademark curls straightened, leading her kids to tell her that the new look was great on her.

Her husband Jim Bob didn’t agree.

“I do like it longer,” he said, repeating it again for emphasis.

The Duggar mom apparently agreed with Jim Bob, as Michelle decided to return to her normal curly haired look shortly after the makeover.


Michelle Duggar’s mom makeover comes during a busy time for the family, though, with 19 children, there are likely few quiet moments. Michelle has campaigned for controversial Senate candidate Todd Akin, Jezebel noted, and has suggested that there could one day be a 20th addition to the family.

Earlier this year she told Today‘s Savannah Guthrie that she and husband Jim Bob are thinking about trying for more children.

“Not that I know of. We would love to, but we don’t today,” Michelle told Guthrie when asked if they had any big news to share.
