First Lady Melania Trump is gaining more confidence in her new role and is solidly preparing to move into the White House this summer. A source said to have ties with Melania spills that she's hitting her stride as the first lady after taking on a few solo engagements, and hosting a luncheon at the White House this week to mark International Women's Day.

Melania Trump will personify 'Renewal' in the White House

The insider reveals that the former model "really cares about entertaining," which showed when she helped to plan the elaborate Governor's Ball just a few weeks ago at the White House, in which 46 governors from around the country and their spouses attended the lavish event.

Melania's theme was "Spring Renewal" and the source says Mrs. Trump will "be in full bloom" when she relocates to Washington, D.C. this summer after 10-year-old son, Barron, finishes his current school year in Manhattan.

Melania is lightening her hair to match her own motto

The insider says that one of the things Melania Trump is doing to represent a sense of renewal is changing her hair. The hairdresser responsible for her color is Alec M from Beverly Hills. The first lady flies him to New York to work on her hair after he meets with her and 10 Secret Service agents at the boutique, L’Appartement, after normal business hours. Apparently, the two decided recently that she should go blonder and it's a process known as "balayage."

Although Melania Trump has a great head of hair, the source shares that she adds extensions to give it more volume.

More 'elegant gowns' to come

When it comes to Melania's wardrobe, fashionistas look forward to seeing the first lady dress in more "elegant gowns" for upcoming events. She's working with Herve Pierre, whom she collaborated with on her inaugural ball gowns. The first lady "wants her dresses modern, sleek and form fitting," the source adds.

First Lady Melania Trump will host the annual Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday, April 17. She's looking forward to being a part of the event and visiting with guests.
