When mom’s away, daughter’s hair goes astray. At least, that’s how it used to be.
As more dads raise kids on their own or help them get ready for school after mom goes to work, they’re asking for help in learning to style their toddlers’ tresses.
For dads looking for more hands-on instruction than YouTube tutorials provide, classes are popping up in salons nationwide. New York City’s Cozy’s Cuts for Kids offers “Dad Braiding 101,” a 45-minute class to teach enterprising dads basic styles like ponytails, braids and buns, while Denver’s Envogue Salon ups the ante with a “Beer and Braids” night: The dad who’s deemed the best braider walks away with a six-pack. Talk about a happy hour for all.
