New York, Dec 23 (ANI): Although there are plenty of unanswered questions buzzing around the Obamas' impending arrival, one has hairdressers on the edge of their styling chairs - Who will be chosen to do U.S. president-elect Michelle Obama's hair?

Barry Fletcher, Keith Harvey and are among the Washington, D.C. area hairstylists who hope to score a gig with first-lady-to-be Michelle Obama, reports the New York Daily News.

Fletcher sent Michelle a 17-minute DVD about himself while Harley uploaded his resume to the President-elect's Web site.

The first lady typically invites beauticians to the White House, instead of venturing out for hair appointments,

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.

Fletcher, the 52-year-old owner of The Hair Palace Salon in Mitchellville, Md., cites his experience in international hairstyling challenges and working with actress Halle Berry and singer Mya, a D.C. native.

"I'm going to be doing her hair. This would pretty much validate all of my hard work and effort to get to a level where I could handle a powerful queen like the first lady," Fletcher said.

Harley, of Keith Harley Hair and Scalp Clinic in Arlington, Va., said: "It would be the highlight of my career."(ANI)
