The creator behind the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory can do hair better than many women

Styling little girls' hair can be a challenge for even the most capable of moms, but it's an even bigger one for dads only used to combing their own short strands.

Phillipe Morgese is trying to change that. He's honed his skills over time, finding a real talent for creating intricate braids. He even made an intricate Katniss Everdeen for Halloween.

But he noticed other dads were having a hard time doing the same with their girls' hair, so in fall 2015 he reached out to a local cosmetology school in Daytona Beach, Florida, to create the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory. The first father-daughter event was a huge success with a mixed bag of dads — both married and single — from all walks of life.

"I asked the dads what they did for work, and it was an interesting bunch. We had a prison guard, mechanic, general contractor, ATT tech, Apple tech, healthcare recruiter and a carpenter. Definitely out of their element but they were all excited to learn. It was beautiful :)," he wrote of the turnout.

The classes have attracted hundreds of dads in the four months since — and the classes are all free, thanks to the support of the International Academy and fans that send hair products. Volunteers are also sharing tips for working with hair from different ethnic backgrounds.

The best part: Dads are now sharing hairstyles they've created on the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory Facebook page. Truth be told: These guys are creating styles that I can't even begin to do.
