Many men don’t have experience with styling long hair, so when it comes time to pull their daughter’s hair up into an acceptable ponytail to get ready for school the results aren’t always an A+. One dad is giving a great lesson to other dads doing their daughter’s hair.

In an adorable YouTube video, dad Olu demonstrates his hairstyling skills on his very patient, young daughter Kemi. As he explains, mom is generally in charge when it comes to styling their two daughters’ hair, but occasionally the job falls on his shoulders. He clearly takes his styling duties seriously and has perfected the art of putting his daughter’s beautiful hair into a functional updo that she would willingly wear to school.

Having mastered the dad hair salon, Olu gladly shares his tips with other dads in need of a little assistance to care for their own daughter’s hair with very clear and easy to follow instructions on making ponytails, twists and braids on natural hair. His skills win his daughter’s seal of approval and hopefully will help some other dads to win a good hair day.
