Single Dad Learns How To Style Daughter’s Hair And Now He’s Teaching Other Dads At His ‘Daddy Daughter Hair Factory’


It’s not easy for a dad to do his daughter’s hair without any lessons. After all, most dads have never braided hair, parted pigtails or styled high ponytails. That doesn’t mean they can’t, one single dad is proving that with his Daddy Daughter Hair Factory.

Meet Philippe Morgese, a devoted dad that didn’t let his lack of experience stand in the way of doing his daughter Emma’s hair. When he became a single dad he decided to learn how to style hair like a master mom… and he did! Morgese started small, working with basic hairclips and moving onto pigtails, but he has since worked his way up to French braids and beyond.

He didn’t stop there, once he mastered the techniques he decided to teach other dads how to do the same. He was able to score a free classroom space at the International Academy beauty school located in Florida where he recently hosted his first class called Daddy Daughter Hair Factory. During the free class dads learned how to style their daughters’ hair and got to enjoy some great bonding time too.
