This 5-Year-Old Is Better At Hairstyling Than You'll Ever Be

Meanwhile, I can't even do a messy bun.

Meet Magnolia, a 5-year-old from Scottsdale, Arizona, who is blowing everyone's minds with her unbelievable hairstyling skills.

Her mother, hairstylist and blogger Jenny Strebe, recently realized her daughter had a pretty remarkable knack for hairstyling when she let her play with a mannequin head for the first time.

Her mother, hairstylist and blogger Jenny Strebe, recently realized her daughter had a pretty remarkable knack for hairstyling when she let her play with a mannequin head for the first time.

"She said, ‘I want to play with it!’ and just started doing hairstyles," Strebe told BuzzFeed.

"I was like, oh my gosh, do that again," she said. "That’s when I started recording her. It was a total fluke."

"I was like, oh my gosh, do that again," she said. "That’s when I started recording her. It was a total fluke."

Strebe shared that video on Facebook and Instagram, where it's been viewed thousands of times in the past two weeks.

Since then, Magnolia's made two more hair videos, with many more to come.

Strebe teaches hairstyling classes across the country, and while Magnolia has attended a number of them, Strebe says her daughter's skills are completely her own.

"I've never taught her anything. She just kind of goofs around in the classes," Strebe said. "She has Barbies and a little doll head she plays around with, but that was the first time she used a legit mannequin head."

LIKE, HOW.

"She was just like, ‘Yeah, this is what you do. Duh, mom!'" Strebe said. "She just did it, and she was super confident about it."

Magnolia's been practicing her hairstyling skills for a while.

This video of her "styling" her grandma's hair was taken when she was just 2½.

Strebe said her daughter "definitely wants to be a hairstylist" when she grows up.

"She’s a confident little girl," Strebe said. "She comes off like she knows exactly what she’s doing."

So, is she taking clients yet?
