This Single Father Couldn’t Do His Daughter’s Hair, So He Went To Beauty School

If you ask any parent, they’ll likely tell you that raising a child is one of the most challenging jobs in the world. While parenting can be difficult even for a well-equipped couple, it can be even harder for single parents who are expected to perform a job that is usually done by two people. That was the case for Greg Wickherst, a single father living in Pueblo, Colorado with his young daughter Izzy. Greg was navigating the waters of being a single parent and felt like he had most things covered — that is, except for doing his daughter’s hair.

Now known as “The Hair Dad,” see how Greg rose to the occasion and made a name for himself doing what most fathers couldn’t imagine.

Being A Single Parent Isn’t Easy

After he and his wife went their separate ways, Greg Wickherst received primary custody of his three-year-old daughter, Izzy. Although he had become comfortable with almost all aspects of parenting, when it came to properly styling his daughter’s hair, Greg felt like he was clueless.

In order to solve his problem, Greg claims that “I saw an area that I was lacking as a parent and wanted to fix it, so I asked for help.”

Little did he know that asking for help would change he and his daughter’s lives.
