A single dad created a class to teach other single fathers how to style their daughters' hair.

Philippe Morgese was forced to teach himself how to do his daughter's hair after he became a single parent when Emma was just one.

He progressed rapidly from using hair clips, to completing pig tails and then on to more complicated designs - prompting other dads to complement his skills and ask for lessons on how to do hair themselves.

So he decided to set up his own free class at a local hairdressing academy, where he taught fellow fathers how to do the "basic brushing, ponytails, braids and buns".

His images of the class - which he dubbed the "Daddy Daughter Hair Factory" - have been seen more than two million times since he posted them on Reddit, with many taking time to praise Morgese for his efforts.

Writing on Facebook, Morgese, from Florida, said all the dads who turned up were "eager to learn".

I thought the class turned out great! We had a bunch of dads with their daughters and everyone was eager to learn.

I'm so proud of those that showed up and tried their best.

You guys rocked it! I can't express that enough.

He is planning more classes and has even set up a Facebook page advertising them.
