Greg Wickherst has been buzzing his head his whole adult life, and like most dad’s he had no clue how to put his daughter Izzy’s hair into a ponytail,

Greg and Izzy’s mom had separated over a year ago, and since she spends most of her time living with dad, he had to take matters (or her hair) into his own hands.  Greg works at the IntelliTec College which happens to have a cosmetology department.

Last summer, Greg visited the department and asked some of the students to aid his quest to properly do his daughters hair. Wickherst took tutorials during his lunch breaks and became a natural . ‘I spent a couple hours just working on a mannequin and she showed me how to do a bun, a french braid, all the different styles,’ he told Buzzfeed News.  “In no time, I was able to do a simple braid, then a fishbone braid, and a French braid. I learned how to do a ponytail, then flip it through itself either under or over. I call that an inverted ponytail,” he said.

Now, Greg is a hair styling guru and shows off his masterpieces on his Facebook page. Below are some of the creations.
