Dad Braiding 101.
Groups of dads across the country are stepping up to the plate and educating themselves on something that affects the daily lives of their daughters – styling hair.
Some dads are even taking classes to learn basic girls’ hair-styling skills so they can do their daughters’ hair. Salons across the country are throwing Daddy-daughter dates at which dads learn to brush, detangle, braid and bun their girls’ hair — a process many men admit makes them nervous.
To build guys’ confidence, one salon in Denver holds “Beer and Braids” night, which encourages fathers, for $55, to come as a group with their daughters and participate in a hair fashion show judged by stylists. The winning dad-stylist takes home a six-pack.
Daughters love the time spent with their dads, and as men increasingly become stay-at-home parents, it’s important that everyone learn how to make a ponytail that will last through recess.
