Single father, Philippe Morgese, would do anything for his daughter Emma. Despite the many challenges that come with being a single parent, Morgese is finding ways around them and doing everything he can to make Emma healthy and happy. Lost in a world of ponytails, headbands and bobby pins, Morgese took it upon himself to be the best hairstylist he could. Not only that, but Morgese decided to pass on his knowledge to other struggling dads by creating the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory.
The Daddy Daughter Hair Factory is held every Wednesday evening from 6-7 p.m., free of charge. Classes can accommodate 12 people at a time and spots fill up fast. The class is located at International Academy beauty school in Florida, where Morgese obtained a free classroom to hold his lessons.
According to ABC News, seven dads attended the first session, where the lesson plan included basic detangling, brushing, ponytails, three-strand braids and a standard bun. The fathers also received hair care goody bags to take home with them.
Moregese says he loves the extra time he gets to spend with his daughter and is hoping to make the class a weekly lesson for both men and women. “The bond between a parent and their child is special,” says Morgese to ABC News. “I hope this story inspires others to volunteer their time to help those in their community.”
