Being a father today continues to be one of the greatest challenges a man can face. But trying to raise a child completely alone, without a doubt represents an even more important challenge. Such was the case for Greg Wickherst, a Colorado man who, along with his six-year-old daughter, has become a viral sensation in the least expected way.
After separating from his wife and the mother of his daughter Izzy, the man became aware that there was something that his daughter constantly asked him but due to his lack of knowledge, could not bring to reality. “I have Izzy a lot of the time, so I have to take care, among other things, of combing it” shared the employee of a tertiary institute to the ABC news network.
“I used to, simply, comb it with a line in the middle, but one day I tried to make a ponytail and realized that I really could not do it.” After several failed attempts, Wickherst decided to enroll in a cosmetology school. To his surprise, with the passing of days, his colleagues made him notice that he had a natural talent for making innovative hairstyles.
The proud father ensures that he will continue to learn new styles to experiment with his daughter, in addition to answering thousands of specific requests made by his followers on social networks.
In addition to discovering a new hidden talent, the expert peignoir ensures that the best advice he can offer other single parents is simply to enjoy every minute with his children. “The good and the not so good, including diapers, tantrums in a store and nighttime belly pains.”
“I did not want my daughter to look like a boy for the simple fact that she was raised only by her father,” said the man who, at present, has full custody of Izzy.
