Dad Hair

One of the duties of being a dad to a little girl is to learn how to do hair. Obviously, pony-tails are necessary and pig-tails are de rigueur, but after that it’s a long road of finger-fumbling and tiny elastics, quiet swearing and the silent need for approval. It is a well-known fact that the greatest compliment a father can get is for a woman to look at his daughter’s hair and say, “Wow, your mommy did a great job on your hair! It’s so pretty!”, and for the girl to say, “Not Mommy – Daddy did my hair today!” I’m almost sad to admit how happy I am when this happens.

In the spirit of that feeling, I thought I would post a picture of my first attempt – somewhat successful – at the double french braid. Behold: If you can't see the picture, rest assured that it is one of, if not the most, amazing photographs of hair ever taken by a human.  Seriously, you're missing out.
Now, the left side is certainly better than the right, but with time comes the inches you gain toward perfection…never quite achieving it but crawling ever closer. One hair at a time.



  1. WOW, great job. the braids will get better, with time. sounds like you’ve got the dad thing down. 🙂

  2. Thanks! I’ll keep working on the braids (and other styles!)

  3. That is so cute! There are tons of videos on youtube to teach you how to do her hair. 🙂
