Go ahead, we’re going to give you another moment to bask in the fabulousness that is Michelle Obama’s hair. Sigh.

For all you ladies dying to capture the First Lady’s look (us included!), her official hairstylist Johnny Wright shared with HuffPost Live a few key secrets to keeping her hair looking oh-so-presidential.

Asked which look has been his favorite on Mrs. O, who he’s been styling since 2009, he said, “I really love what her hair is doing right now. We worked with a colorist who works [in Washington, D.C.] at Frederic Fekkai. His name is Daniel Villano and he does her highlights,” he said of the rich caramel streaks she’s been sporting since last summer.

“I really love what her highlights have done for her features and I love that her hair has grown so long,” he said, adding that her lush locks are “100 percent natural.” He continues, “It’s all about using great products and all that kind of stuff, too. We got some stuff coming after the break. We’re on vacation now.”

As for her vacation style, FLOTUS is as low maintenance as the rest of us. “She’s putting on some conditioner and pulling it back into a ponytail, that’s exactly what she’s doing the whole month of August,” Wright revealed.
