Rita Auma Obama may be famous for her kinship but her thick hair that was pulled into rough locks has definitely been significant in her identity.
However, the sociologist, community activist, and writer stirred mixed reactions on social media after she cut her locks and donned a new look.
Sharing photos of her new look on her Twitter handle, the sister to former US president Barack Obama said short hair would be her new normal.
"On a lighter note...went in for a haircut and came out looking like this! My new normal," tweeted Auma.
The founder of a non-profit organization helping orphans and young Kenyans struggling with poverty did not only cut her locks but also died her new short hair blonde.
Well, Auma's fans differed on the new look with a number of them thinking the barber had not done her hair justice while others thought she looked amazing with the new look.
"Truth be told, it is a no-no but again you are the master of yourself, do as you please," wrote Robert Kibiwot.
"Oh NO! That Barber needs an immediate arrest ," wrote Abdinoor Ole Hussein.
For others, they thought what mattered was that she loved her new look and was happy with it.
"Look at you rocking it! I love it. Your smile shows how much you love it too!" said Mara Menzies.
"Do not worry...It is called ageing gracefully. And you look 'organic' and amazing," said Chirosogonas Mc'Odhiambo.

In a virtual interview with the New York Post, a bitter Malik said he noticed Barack wanted to be worshipped after he became successful and him, as the elder brother, could not stoop that low.
