Daddy 'Do Hairstyles | Simple Braid

I started posting a few Daddy ‘Do hairstyles (girls hairstyles so easy even a dad can do them) over 18 months ago. Many moms have responded that they loved the idea and offered the suggestion that maybe I have my husband do them as a tutorial.

Well, it took 18 months, but my sweet hubby finally relented and decided to do it! (He loves our girls so much that all they really had to do was blink their eyelashes a few times and he finally gave in!)

Here he demonstrates for all dads how to do a simple braid…

Not bad for a first try, right?  Honestly, it was somewhat painful for me to see my hubby struggle to braid, knowing I could do it so much faster, but notice how gentle he is being and more importantly… notice the expressions on my daughter’s face as he does her hair! That is what this is all about!  What a great daddy!

We uploaded the video to YouTube the other day, and suprisingly noticed the following statistics only 24 hours later! Apparently moms worldwide were endeared to a video of a daddy doing his daughter’s hair, that it garnered several YouTube awards that day! It has been, by far, our most popular posting after only 24 hours!
