Throughout Michelle Obama‘s time in the White House, we have been dazzled by her wisdom, grace, service, and, let’s be totally honest, that HAIR.

Her Black tresses are literally the crown on her head, with each strand glimmering with health and prosperity.

Given that Michelle is the first Black woman to ever grace the halls of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, we’ve been wondering, did she bring a Black hair stylist into the White House with her? Because we know, as Black women, we are super sensitive about who touches our delicate locks.

Now, we have a little insight into the sorceress behind the Black Girl Magic of the FLOTUS’ hair.

It all started with a tweet:

So, of course, we did our research and discovered that Instagram stalked the stylist:

Yene Damtew is a Washington, D.C.-based stylist who has blessed the heads of Michelle, reality star Cynthia Bailey, and actress Tracee Ellis Ross.

A California native, the Ethiopian-American woman packed up her bags and moved to the nation’s capitol to become the personal hair stylist to the Obamas.

So now that we know her name, how long is her waiting list for appointments?

You can check out more information about Yene on her website.
