After my best attempt at taming the lionâ€™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 itâ€™s not dad. Itâ€™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 localÂ â€˜Dads 4 Lifeâ€™ group that he canâ€™t get to grips with his three-year-old daughterâ€™s hair.
During the discussion, he revealed, â€œI can do [Princess Charlotteâ€™s] ponytail, but thatâ€™s about it, as I donâ€™t have enough hair to practice on!â€
But royal fans appreciated his honesty with many taking to Twitter to praise the Duke of Cambridge:
Nope Iâ€™m fine ðŸ˜ðŸ˜
I canâ€™t get the image of William doing Charlotteâ€™s ponytail out of my head now â™¥ï¸ðŸ˜‚https://t.co/GdZKsal1MO
A dad doing their daughterâ€™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 girlâ€™s hairðŸ’•

Though itâ€™s not the first time dads have graced the headlines after mastering the art of their daughterâ€™s hair.
Single fatherÂ Greg Wickherst â€“ AKA â€˜The Hair Dadâ€˜ â€“ launched his own business after learning to do his daughterâ€™s locks in order to spend quality time together.
Now, the Wickherst teaches other dads how to manage their childâ€™s hair with online tutorials and classes.Â Â
