Bond with your kids, dads, because they're hair today and gone tomorrow.

Redditor MashedPotatoh, a single dad in Daytona, Florida, shared his story of helping dads connect with their daughters in a post where the title says it all.

"I created a Dads and Daughters hair class to help other fathers learn about doing hair. We had a small class full of dads that learned basic brushing, ponytails, braids and buns. The turnout was great! I'm so proud of these dads for stepping up and building a better bond with their daughters."

The dedicated dad is calling his class Daddy Daughter Hair Factory and it received a whole lot of love from the Reddit community.

He proceeded to provide a lot more information by answering questions in the comments.

I decided to put this class together after multiple requests from friends to teach them how to do hairstyles. I'm a single father and my daughter loves challenging me with new styles. It was great to share what I have learned over the years.

...In tonight's class we went over the basics. I taught them how to comb out tangles and do some basic styles. I had the daughter's talk about their favorite styles and we also discussed scalp sensitivity. My daughter and i were trying to think of a way to make it more exciting for the girls involved. We were considering making bracelets by braiding, since most of the dads wanted to sharpen their braiding technique.

He said the dad turnout was really varied, with different expectations and different backgrounds.

I asked the dads what they did for work, and it was an interesting bunch. We had a prison guard, mechanic, general contractor, ATT tech, Apple tech, healthcare recruiter and a carpenter. Definitely out of their element but they were all excited to learn. It was beautiful.

...Two of the dads learned how to do buns because their daughters are in dance class, and they were excited to learn how easy it was with the right hair pin. I know they are going to appreciate it.

MashedPotatoh has been thrilled with the response and just wants to see greater relationships between fathers and their daughters.

I would love to see it become more popular. I know many girls that grew up with close relationships with their fathers, and they tend to be so well rounded. They usually comment on my relationship with my daughter and how much their dad means to them. I think it is a special bond for girls and it guides them to make better choices later in life with who they choose to be with.

...It was the first class, kind of put together to get a feel for what will be needed for future class. I'm planning on doing this once a month at the hair academy and another one at the community center. The idea is to have a small group of dads and help them with their hair. Most of them are married and doing this to help around the house, but there are a few single dads like myself that want to learn more.

...I have funding for future class and to start a class for woman [sic]. I have dads looking to start groups in their area. I have two scheduled radio interviews. It's all been positive. It's not even about the hair, it's about the bond, it's about coming together and sharpening our skills. I'm excited to inspire. I am very happy because if this. Thank you and everyone on this group for always being kind. It means so much.

He has set up a Twitter account and plans to spread the word there and on Facebook.

Your man buns will make you go bald, son.

Put the bun down.

Rodney Sinclair, the Director of Dermatology at Epworth Hospital in Melbourne is trying to spread the word about the dangers of the man bun. You know, that topknot hairstyle that you're growing your hair out for. The one you're hoping is still in fashion by the time you actually have the length to achieve it.

That one.

Well, Sinclair says that the tight constriction placed on the hair can cause something called 'traction alopecia', meaning specific baldness in certain parts of your carefully coifed head.

Like this:

Writing in The Independent, Sinclair cautions that the end of your hair is nigh:

Traction alopecia is the hair loss that occurs after persistent gentle pulling on the roots over several hours or days.

Unlike a hair pluck which is painful, persistent gentle pulling may go unnoticed until bald spots or alopecia starts to appear.

...Even tight ponytails can produce traction alopecia, which means the new style of the 'man braid' and the 'man bun' can also have an effect on men's hairlines.

...When hair is pulled back in a ponytail, the hairs at the margins of the scalp tend to receive the greatest tensile force and hair loss becomes most noticeable on the scalp margins and the outermost hairs of the braid. These hairs are lost first, producing a receding hairline and widening of the part lines.

...Twisting hair into a bun on the top of the head can produce a horseshoe alopecia in the centre of the scalp.

...Unfortunately the only measure that halts progression of traction alopecia is redistributing the tension in the hair. A return to normal is not possible for those who have early androgenetic alopecia or who have developed scarring from prolonged traction. However for most people, a cure is available with their own hair brush.

So, there you have it.

Surely, that will end the trend forever.

Sadly, it was before my hair got long enough.

Tired about the speculation circling his flaxen halo of hair, Donald Trump invited an event attendee to examine his hair to make sure it was real.

He did caution the audience that he does use hairspray, but that didn't stop the investigating woman to quickly confirm that it was real.

Deadline Hollywood wrote about the campaign stunt:

The stunt was by way of attacking The New York Times for what Trump described as a front-page inaccuracy – NYT being today's Donald Trump Media Target. Never any downside to blasting the media, which Trump has used to his headline-grabbing advantage, following his grilling by FNC moderators at the first GOP debate and by Univision star Jorge Ramos at a recent news conference.

"I'm always in the front page of The New York Times now … I'm going to set a record for that too," the real estate mogul simpered at the top of his speech to the Upstate Chamber Coalition's Presidential Series in Greenville, SC.

The quote that drove Trump to such follicle extremes came from this story about Trump's problem courting Spanish media outlets

Ricardo Sánchez, known as "El Mandril" on his Spanish drive-time radio show in Los Angeles, has taken to calling Donald J. Trump "El hombre del peluquín" — the man of the toupee.

Supreme leader Kim Jong-un has unveiled a new do, just in time for Fashion Week, and the world can't stop talking about it.It's similar to his previous cut, but longer and much more "trapezoid." The photo was taken at a Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) meeting in Pyongyang on Wednesday, and it is now pretty much all over Twitter. Was his inspiration "Street Fighter's" Guile, Spongebob's karate helmet or "The Jersey Shore's" DJ Pauly D? Here's what the Internet thinks of the makeover.

Supreme leader and former Sony CEO Kim Jong-un has unveiled a new do, just in time for Fashion Week, and the world can’t stop talking about it.

It’s similar to his previous cut, but longer and much more “trapezoid.”

His eyebrows, which have been shrinking for some time are also new and smaller than ever before.

Forget grounding your kid. Shaming your little troublemaker by making him look like George Costanza is the new hot trend in parenting.

The A-1 Kutz Barbershop & Salon in Snellville, Georgia has a unique (free) service called the "Benjamin Button Special," in which they will shave your child's head so he resembles a balding old man.

The owner of the shop, Russell Fredrick (aka "Rusty Fred") recently posted the picture on Instagram and Facebook, and it has since gotten a lot of attention online including an article in The Washington Post and video interviews with Fox 5 and Good Morning America.

He says the punishment should only be used as a last resort.

"I hope that most people won't have to do this unless it's an extreme circumstances and nothing else is working," Fredrick said. "First, you talk or implement your restrictions. But when the conventional ways don't work these days, you have to get creative."

He later posted an update about the kid in the photo above who was brought in by his mother for acting up in school.

"Welp…pic went so hard over the Internet @rusty_fred had to fix it today," he wrote. "But lil man says he's learned his lesson and he doesn't want them kinda problems again."
