If you want to look as good as the Obama sisters, here’s where you need to go.

Yene Damtew, who used to work as a stylist for Sasha and Malia Obama when former President Barack Obama was serving in the White House, just opened a new salon called Aesthetics in Arlington, Virginia.

According to its official website, Aesthetics is a "boutique style salon with upscale décor, complimentary refreshments, Wi-Fi, and soothing jazz."

Former First Lady Michelle Obama was at the grand opening to toast the new salon. Damtew worked closely with Michelle’s stylist Jonny Wright for many years and also styled the First Lady’s mother, Marian Robinson.

“It has been such a joy to have you in our lives,” Obama told the crowd of VIPs, according to the Washington Post. Obama said Damtew hand-painted her hair color. No wonder the Obama ladies always looks so perfect.

In addition to her time at the White House, Damtew has also styled some other Hollywood names such as Hugh Jackman, Tracee Ellis Ross, and K. Michelle.

Anyone who wants their hair to look fresh couldn’t ask to be put in more capable hands — but we’re sure spots are filling up fast. More information on the salon can be found on the Aesthetics Salon website.
