Apparently we’re not the only fans of the California-based blow-dry salon. A tipster tells Washingtonian that President Obama’s 15-year-old daughter, Malia, had her hair done this weekend at Drybar on Bethesda Row.

The First Daughter was seen at the chic locale Saturday afternoon, reportedly dancing around the salon with a group of girlfriends from Sidwell Friends School. There’s no word on what style she requested—we happen to think she’d look beautiful with a side-parted Cosmo—but we do know the girls were prepping for the school’s annual Valentine’s Day dance that evening.

According to Drybar founder Alli Webb, Malia’s visit is not the first of its kind: Chelsea Clinton has been spotted getting her hair blown out at Drybar in Manhattan, while Barbara and Jenna Bush are known to frequent its Dallas outpost. When the salon first opened in Washington two years ago, Webb said, “We had to come to DC so Malia and Sasha could experience it too—a Drybar presidential hat trick!”

Looks like her wish just came true. Now, how do we get Sasha in there?
