Hair ye, hair ye: Michelle Obama didn't cut her hair.

Her hairstylist Johnny Wright reveals that he gave her an "tuck up," which she debuted at a country music event at the White House Tuesday.

"No, I didn't cut her hair," he tells UrbanBeautyCollective.com. "There are two things I do. The UP-TUCK, like you are tucking something in. Then I do a TUCK-UP. The UP-TUCK is when I position a small ponytail somewhere on the head, and then I tuck the rest of the hair up under that ponytail. Then a TUCK-UP is when I take the hair and gather it all in the back and I twist it and I pull up and tuck. And that is what she got last night! A TUCK UP! Not a cut."

Wright says he has given "different celebrities" the same look "and it looks different every time depending on the length of the hair."

But he notes, "It's a really easy up do. And it looks really classy and appropriate for any occasion."

As for Michelle, "I said to her that this would be a nice length for her whenever we decide to cut it, and she said yeah," Wright says. "So now whenever we do cut it, I'll probably go shorter now because everyone thinks that's the cut!"
