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.

A study out of Belgium found that smart people are much less likely to be bigoted. The same study also found that people who are bigoted are more likely to overestimate their own intelligence.

A horrifying story out of Germany is a perfect example of this truth on full display: an anti-Semite was so dumb the was unable to open a door at the temple he tried to attack.

On Wednesday, October 9, congregants gathered at a synagogue in Humboldtstrasse, Germany for a Yom Kippur service, and an anti-Semite armed with explosives and carrying a rifle attempted to barge in through the door.

The old saying goes something like, "Possessions don't make you happy." A more dire version is, "What you own, ends up owning you."

Are these old adages true or just the empty words of ancient party-poopers challenging you not to buy an iPhone 11? According to a new study of 968 young adults by the University of Arizona, being materialistic only brings us misery.

The study examined how engaging in pro-environmental behaviors affects the well-being of millenials. The study found two ways in which they modify their behaviors to help the environment: they either reduce what they consume or purchase green items.

One of the biggest obstacles to getting assault weapons banned in the United States is the amount of money they generate.

There were around 10 million guns manufactured in the U.S. in 2016 of which around 2 million were semiautomatic, assault-style weapons. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry's trade association, the U.S. industry's total economic impact in 2016 alone was $51 billion.

In 2016, the NRA gave over $50 million to buy support from lawmakers. When one considers the tens of millions of dollars spent on commerce and corruption, it's no wonder gun control advocates have an uphill battle.

That, of course, assumes that money can control just about anyone in the equation. However, there are a few brave souls who actually value human life over profit.

Trees give us a unique glimpse into our past. An examination of tree rings can show us what the climate was like in a given year. Was it a wet winter? Were there hurricanes in the summer? Did a forest fire ravage the area?

An ancient tree in New Zealand is the first to provide evidence of the near reversal of the Earth's magnetic field over 41,000 years ago.

Over the past 83 million years there have been 183 magnetic pole reversals, a process that takes about 7,000 years to complete.

The final episode of "The Sopranos" made a lot of people angry because it ends with mob boss Tony Soprano and his family eating at an ice cream parlor while "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey plays in the background … and then, suddenly, the screen turns black.

Some thought the ending was a dirty trick, while others saw it as a stroke of brilliance. A popular theory is that Tony gets shot, but doesn't know it because, as his brother-in-law Bobby Baccala said, "You probably don't even hear it when it happens, right?"

So the show gives us all an idea of what it's like to die. We're here and then we're not.
