Dad Uses Vacuum Cleaner to Style His Daughter's Hair (VIDEO)

LOL 34

dad vaccums girl's hairThis video is short -- just eight seconds -- but I feel pretty confident saying it will blow you away. In it, a dad has come up with the most creative and perhaps ingenious way I've ever seen to do a little girl's hair.

He uses a vacuum cleaner -- a full-sized, regular, sweep-your-floor vacuum -- to create the "perfect" ponytail, and he does it in just five seconds. But as crazy as it is, it actually works. You truly have to see it to believe it. Check it out after the jump.

Pretty amazing, right? I wouldn't call that ponytail perfect, and I'm hoping he cleaned the thing out, but I'm totally impressed ... and highly amused.

I'm actually surprised my husband never thought of this himself. When it comes to girls' hair and dads, the two can be a pretty, uh, interesting match. My husband has definitely gotten better over the years, but there was a time when if I wasn't around, he'd just put a brush and some hair ties in the diaper bag, and ask the first friendly preschool teacher or woman with decent-looking hair he'd see to help him out, a.k.a. do it for him. When he tried doing it himself ... let's just say everyone knew I was out of town.

Like I said, he's come a long way and can do a pretty mean ponytail these days. But if he'd seen this video a couple of years ago, I'm pretty sure he would have at least given it a try.

What has your experience been with dads and girls' hair?

That is hilarious! Now if only he can figure out a way to detangle it without crying.

My husband does a better job on our daughters hair than i do some days

That said I'm sure he would try it for fun but it looks like that little little girls head was yanked pretty good.

Too funny!

That's great lol. My husband is much better at styling our 2 year old's hair than I am, though. I can barely put her hair in a decent ponytail, and even that takes me awhile.

That wasn't exactly a perfect pony tail though as much as I hate to be the skeptical one. Lots of lumps and bumps in it everywhere.
