Dad can you plait my hair?
One of the dreaded questions many fathers may find themselves trying to avoid.
A single dad in Florida has created a class to teach other fathers how to style their daughters’ hair.
Philippe Morgese found himself forced to teach himself how to do basic brushing, ponytails, braids and buns after he became a single parent when his little girl Emma was just one.
He progressed rapidly from using hair clips, to completing pigtails and other more complicated designs and found other dads started complimenting him on his skills and asking for help and advice.
He set up his own free class at a local hairdressing academy, which he dubbed the “Daddy Daughter Hair Factory.”
Pictures from the class have been seen more than two million times since he posted them on Reddit.
He wrote: “I have 12 dads that signed up for the first class and will bring their daughters. We are going over basic hair care and ponytails to start.
“I’m going to try and make it a monthly class to help the fathers in my community. I have a few fathers staying after class the first day so I can teach them how to do buns.
“I’m not a professional at all, but that doesn’t seem to slow me down.”
The devoted dad said he plans to expand the classes into a weekly or bi-weekly class for both men and women.
He added: “I think it’s a service to the community and it is important to do our part.
“The bond between a parent and their child is special.
“I hope this story inspires others to volunteer their time to help those in their community.”
