The Life of Dad After Show - Episode 165 - Philippe Morgese - Daddy Daughter Hair Factory

Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton bring on Philippe Morgese to talk about the classes he started up to show dads how to style their daughters’ hair. He created the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory.

Philippe created the Daddy Daughter Hair Factory to help the fathers in his community learn how to do their daughters’ hair. Phil found it to be a great way for dads to bond with their daughters and it helped build confidence in the daughters as well.

Learning how to do hair is a simple way to play an important part in your daughter’s day to day life. Phil knew it was a struggle for most dads that he came across, so putting together this little class seemed like a necessary thing to do.

When the story went viral and gained worldwide attention, Phil knew he had to create this manual to help guide people that couldn’t make it to his class.
