Michelle Obama: Sending Black Hairstylists into a Frenzy

Black beauticians are sending DVDS and uploading résumés to Barack Obama's official Web site all in hopes of becoming Michelle Obama's personal hairstylist, according to the Associated Press. "Rather than venture out for hair appointments, the First Lady typically invites beauticians to the White House. Some of the region's Black salon owners hope their experience with African-American hair could give them an edge over those who coifed the likes of Laura Bush or Hillary Clinton,'' according to the AP.
