One fantastic dad found a foolproof technique to style his daughter’s hair and has become an instant hit among internet users. Find the hilarious video below.
Zach Herren accidentally discovered the best way to give his daughter, two-year-old Kenleigh Herren, a high ponytail. As it happens, the Kentucky dad even makes it fun for his toddler.
Everyone knows toddlers can be a handful, and Kenleigh was no different. At two, her hair was so long that it was beginning to get into her eyes, but when her parents try to pull it up, she throws tantrums.
In August, Zach told Inside Edition how they eventually got the ponytail done:
"One day I was doing the airplane on the ground and I just see all her hair hanging down and ... I told [my wife] Kayla to get me a rubber band."
Kenleigh enjoys being held in the airplane position, and when her father pulled her hair into an updo, the toddler did not make a fuss. Zach also made sure to distract her with a rendition of "Let It Go" from the Disney animation, "Frozen."
When Zach decided to try the new “technique” out the second time, Kayla filmed as he used his feet to hold Kenleigh aloft above his stomach, with her head hanging down.
The family nicknamed Zach’s invention the "airplane hair-do," and it has become a part of their daily routine. The creative dad hilariously implied that he’s ready to do whatever it takes to keep up his work.
"I'm gonna have to start, uh, getting back in the gym as she gets bigger I guess!" he said
The video went viral in no time, and has been watched and shared thousands of times. Inside Edition further revealed, “the couple is shocked by the response they've gotten on social media.”
DADDIES SAVING THE DAY
The internet is filled with amazing stories of dads doing the most to take care of their little ones. There’s the case of Marc Daniels, a 39-year-old father of three.
Daniels was at the dress rehearsal for his two older daughters’ ballet performance while holding on to the youngest, an infant.
One of his daughters, two-year-old Bella, suddenly had stage fright that left her cranky. After the dance instructors were unable to handle her tantrums, Daniels waltzed in to save the day.
The self-employed lawyer joined Bella on stage and pulled off delicate twirls, spin, and pointed toes in sync with the little ballerinas.
Daniels’ selfless act was shared by the dance school, and the video went viral immediately. He was also treated to an unexpected reaction from his work colleagues.
