After becoming a single dad, Darious Bland created a workshop entitled Can Daddy Do My Hair that's teaching fathers tips and tricks surrounding styling and maintaining their daughters hair.
The events are held in Hunstsville, Alabama and cater to fathers with daughters between the ages of three to 10-years old. Dads attend the classes with their little ones, where they can practice flat twists, bantu knots, braiding and other techniques for styling black hair, in addition to maintenance advice. According to Bland, most fathers in the workshop don't understand "the frustration that mothers have to go through while doing their daughters’ hair,” and he hopes that these classes will help prepare men for the challenging task.
This dad-focused event has inspired others around the world and was even noticed by the health and wellness guru, Khembe Clarke, who hosted a similar event in England.
