Single Dad Teaches Fathers How to Style Their Girls’ Hair

It’s a great bonding experience.

Few men will ever truly understand the relationship a woman has with her hair. In fact, according to the Daily Mail, the average woman spends 10 minutes a day washing and conditioning her hair, another 15 under the blow-dryer, and 15 more styling her tresses. A woman’s hair can have a big impact on her self-confidence and sense of femininity. Right or wrong, how a woman wears her hair has a lot to do with how she’s perceived by others. Even Hillary Clinton once told the 2001 graduating class at Yale College, “The most important thing I have to say today is that hair matters. Pay attention to your hair. Because everyone else will.”


In light of that, single dad Philippe Morgese is doing something very important for both his daughter and fathers everywhere. After he started putting clips in his daughter Emma’s hair to keep it out of her face, he began experimenting with more dynamic braids and buns. This led to creating a series of classes called the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory at a cosmetology school in Daytona Beach, Florida. At these events, fathers got a crash course from Morgese in styling their daughters’ hair. Over the first two months, more than 100 dads have taken the class.

“The reaction has been phenomenal,” Morgese told The Doctors. “Just watching these relationships flourish over a simple idea … like doing their hair, you know?”

Here are just a few of Morgese’s hair creations on his favorite model, Emma.

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
