First Lady of the United States Melania Trump sported an up-do by her longtime hair stylist, Israeli Mordechai Alvow, as her husband US President Donald Trump was sworn into office, Yahoo reported Friday.

Owner of the salon Yarok Beauty Kitchen in Manhattan, Alvow left Israel shortly after completing his service in the IDF. Following training at the Vidal Sassoon in London he immigrated to the United States.

Alvow has been styling Trump's hair for a decade.

Alvow explained to Yahoo, “For the first lady’s Capitol Hill engagements, I wanted to achieve a superchic look to work with the silhouette of the sky blue Ralph Lauren set. The outfit had beautiful tailoring, including a superhigh collar that is great for her long neck, and a 1950s feel was modernized with a touch of origami shapes."


"It was important to make sure her hair did not interfere with the clean lines and monochrome color, so we decided to put her hair up, which also allowed her amazing bone structure to take center stage.”
