Styling our hair — most of us have been doing it, reading about it and testing out new styles since we could read. But back before our obsession started, we relied on a mom, older sister, auntie, babysitter or grandmother to put our hair in braids and ponytails. In the case of Izzy Wickherst, a young girl from Colorado, her coveted hair comes from a unique source — her dad, who has taken cosmetology courses just to learn how to style his daughter’s locks.

Greg Wickherst has been shaving his head his entire adult life, leaving him clueless to his daughter’s predicament. And as a single dad, he didn’t have any experienced female caretakers who could help him out.

So Greg did something that even the proudest papa of papas might not do; he took a cosmetology course. Now, Greg is braiding left and right, leaving the simple ponytail far behind.

Izzy’s hairstyles are seriously impressive. From fishtail braids to inverted ponytails, this girl has got some major school credit thanks to her devoted dad.
