Philippe Morgese became well known to his Facebook friends for the creative and wonderful designs he’s was doing his daughter’s hair. I’m not sure if you’ve ever had long hair or tried to do ‘creative’ things with it for friends or family, but it’s harder than you might think, yet Philippe had mastered the art with flair!
His mastery then went on to win him a competition and making a TV appearance. Rather than just reveling in the glory, he saw this as an opportunity to do something bigger and lovelier than that french braid, he’d share the skills, and the bonding opportunities, with other people and created a ‘Dads and Daughters’ hair class in his local community.
“We had a prison guard, mechanic, general contractor, ATT tech, Apple tech, healthcare recruiter and a carpenter,” Philippe said. “Definitely out of their element but they were all excited to learn. It was beautiful.”
Not only is he finding a wonderful way to help his daughter, spend time with her and bond with her, he’s helping other dads do the same, making it cool for guys to be great at hair, and breaking the mould of what it is society used to expect a dad to be. Now where do the boys with long hair sign up to be part of it too?
