There’s something quite special about dads doing their daughters’ hair – celebrating the fact is Denver salon owner Calli Huebl-Bodilis. She regularly hosts a hairdressing workshop called ‘Beer and Braids’ for dads and their little girls at her salon, Envogue.
According to the Oddity Central, the workshop – priced at $55 – provides one-on-one training to six dads on ponytail, braid, and bun basics. They get hands-on practice on their own daughters’ hair, after which the little girls put on a fashion show that is judged by stylists. The winning dad gets a six-pack of beer, while all the girls are gifted goody bags with hair products.
Calli said that she got the idea for the event from her husband. His business partner had arrived late for a meeting one day, because his wife was out of town and he had to style his daughter’s hair. The result was disastrous. That’s when Calli realised that a workshop for dads had tremendous potential. “Dads today are so much more hands-on,” she said. “Many of my (female) clients are the breadwinners, the CEOs, and the dads stay at home.”
