Inspirational Saturday: Dad of the YEAR Holds Class to Teach Other Dads How to Do Their Daughter's Hair!

As a mom, I absolutely love to see stories about awesome Dads. Even better is when those awesome Dads really step outside their comfort zone to do something especially fantastic for their daughters, like one dad did.

Philippe Morgese is a single dad to a daughter - a daughter who has hair, and wants to look pretty! He started polishing his little-girl hairstyling skills to step up his daughter's hair game, and started getting compliments and even requests for advice from other Dads. What is a man to do?

Philippe, realizing that he is not alone in his quest for pretty hair (for his daughter, of course!), decided to do an amazing thing - he held a free class in South Daytona, FL for fellow dads called the "Daddy Daughter Hair Factory." He approached a local beauty school, The International Academy in South Daytona about donating space for his free class, and they thought it was a great idea. For his first class, Philippe had 7 Dads and Daughters turn out, and he says they "Did great!" The course covered basic hair brushing, pony tails, braids, and buns. He even sent the dads home with goody bags to continue their hair quest at home!

Philippe saw a need and wanted to fill it. I think this is something amazing he is doing for his community, and is something he should be very proud of! Small businesses need to have the support of their local community in order to succeed, and giving back to the community in a meaningful way helps you not only better yourself as a person, help someone in need, but it goes a long way in showing the community the type of values you built your business on. What are some of your favorite ways to give back to your community?
