Darious Bland, a single father in Alabama, has learned the hard way in how to care for his daughter’s hair and wants to help other fathers out in similar roles. Bland has launched an event earlier this week called “Can Daddy Do My Hair?” aimed at teaching fathers how to construct hairstyles for their little girls.

Local outlet WHNT reports:

These dads are learning a lot; not only about hair but what many mom’s go through. “They didn’t understand the frustration that mothers have to go through while doing their daughters hair,” Bland said.

These fathers are learning new skills all while building closer relationships with their daughters. “The father is the ultimate role model. He’s the person that everything kind of falls back on. He’s the person daughters look to as a male figure and so do their sons,” Bland said.

Congrats to Darious Bland and the other daddies doing great work.
