This week Actor Wesley Jonathan went viral after he posted the cutest Instagram video of himself styling his daughter’s hair along with his wife Tamara Mitchell.
The video is so cute, check it out:

We all love to see dads doing their daughter’s hair because traditionally mom does hair and even if dad is very involved now we get to see them publicly through videos and social shares.
Tamara is a hairstylist and makeup artist with her own youtube channel and in a mini-series, Wesley has been in training on how to do simple styles on his daughter’s hair.
He is a bit of a perfectionist on the parts but we think he is doing well, check out one of the videos below:
Honestly, baby girl did not make training very easy but she is so adorable its hard to even focus on what Wesley was doing.
After watching this video we wanted to give dads some additional tips that dad’s who are just learning to do baby girl’s hair can use.
1. Practice makes perfect
If you are new to styling and caring for afro textured or curly hair you will need practice. Knowing that going in is helpful because it sets your expectations and helps you to give yourself some slack.
2. Be patient
Be patient with yourself especially if you are just starting out and be patient with your daughter as she adjusts to you practicing on her hair. We all have had to dig deep when it comes to styling our hair because it isnt always easy, so you aren’t alone. Patience is key!
3. You do not have to be perfect
Wesley was a bit of a perfectionist with the parts and we get it because straight parts does help the style to look polished. The tip here is, give yourself a break if the part isnt perfectly straight. The more you pratice the better your parts will get.
