After my best attempt at taming the lion’s mane of hair my daughter has:
Me: Oh look how pretty your hair is!
Heidi with tears forming in her eyes after she looks in the mirror: No it’s not dad. It’s not pretty.

But it will take a lot more than that for a number of women to give a round of applause, as some took to social media to call out fathers for their attempts.

The news comes after Prince William revealed to a man from the local ‘Dads 4 Life’ group that he can’t get to grips with his three-year-old daughter’s hair.
During the discussion, he revealed, “I can do [Princess Charlotte’s] ponytail, but that’s about it, as I don’t have enough hair to practice on!”
But royal fans appreciated his honesty with many taking to Twitter to praise the Duke of Cambridge:
Nope I’m fine 😭😭
I can’t get the image of William doing Charlotte’s ponytail out of my head now ♥️😂https://t.co/GdZKsal1MO
A dad doing their daughter’s hair will always be one of the purest things I witness#keepitup

Trying to do a French braid could be easier? Love that Prince William is trying to do his little girl’s hair💕

Though it’s not the first time dads have graced the headlines after mastering the art of their daughter’s hair.
Single father Greg Wickherst – AKA ‘The Hair Dad‘ – launched his own business after learning to do his daughter’s locks in order to spend quality time together.
Now, the Wickherst teaches other dads how to manage their child’s hair with online tutorials and classes.
