Greg Wickherst is a single dad from Colorado who has been shaving his head for much of his adult life.  So when he was tasked with putting his little girl Izzy's hair into a ponytail, he was admittedly pretty clueless.  But after Greg's marriage broke-up, the dad found that doing that hair thing had to become "his" thing.

"Hair has definitely not been my thing,"   ~ Greg told The Huffington Post

Izzy spends most of her time living with him, meaning Greg is more often than not responsible for styling his young daughter's hair.

Thankfully Greg works as an admissions representative at the IntelliTec College, which just so happens to have a cosmetology department. He says students helped him learn some basic styling techniques.dad-hairstylist-1

"In no time, I was able to do a simple braid, then a fishbone braid, and a French braid. I learned how to do a ponytail, then flip it through itself either under or over. I call that an inverted ponytail," he said.

Showing off the results of his handy work, Greg now regularly shares images on his Facebook page of the intricate hairstyles he regularly creates on his daughter. And the results are impressive.

Greg has turned his that Facebook page into what he calls a "Guide To Surviving Hair"! His best advice? Enjoy every minute of it.

"The good and the not-so-good. Even the blowout diapers, the tantrums in the store, and the late night, up sick, catching-throw-up-in-your-bare-hands nights. Because it doesn't last forever."
