If I said “braids, high-pony tails, and buns” you’d probably assume I was talking about different hairstyles Mom uses on her daughter’s hair before school. Thanks to a local Dads Group, that may not necessarily be the case. On January 21st, local parenting network Vegas Dads Group, is teaming up with Daddy Daughter Hair Factory. Their goal? To teach fathers how to do their daughter’s hair.
The first of many classes was spearheaded by Vegas Dads Group co-organizer Colin Gorman. He said it all started last spring when one of the group’s members with two daughters asked if they could find a hairdresser to teach them all how to do little girls hair. It was shortly after that that Colin met Phil Morgese, a Florida father who started Daddy Daughter Hair Factory. Colin has a 3.5 year-old daughter with long hair. He saw this as a great opportunity for the growing group. The class, which is free of charge, will focus on 4 different styles. The best part? Everything needed will be provided for dad and daughter.
The first class is on Saturday, January 21st at the Clark County Public Library, 1401 East Flamingo Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89119. This is just the first of many similar events like this for the group. Vegas Dads Group schedules weekly play dates for fathers and their children, weekend outings for the whole family, and even hosts a “Dad’s Night Out” every month where guys can hang out with others who understand what one member calls “The Brotherhood of Fatherhood.” Gorman said that, based on interest, the goal would be to hold Daddy Daughter Hair events several times per year.
Space is limited, so an RSVP is required. Dads can join the Vegas Dads Group, RSVP for the event, and find out what else is on the calendar right here.
