    You Gotta See This Single Dad's Christmas Hairstyles For His Daughter

    Luckiest 4-year-old girl ever!

    Remember Greg Wickherst? He's the single dad from Pueblo, Colorado who took a cosmetology class so he could learn how to braid his daughter, Izzy's, hair. Well, he's become a total pro since then and completely outdid himself this Christmas.

    Wickherst told BuzzFeed he celebrated the holiday season at Izzy's school by giving her extravagant hairstyles, like this adorable Christmas tree complete with presents.

    He said the longest part was the prepping with the props, which took about an hour, and doing the actual hairstyle only took about 20 minutes. Wickherst added that the Christmas tree was his favorite because it inspired him to do more holiday styles.

    He said their favorite style for school was for Ugly Sweater Day because, "the two of us stayed up late making the sweater ourselves."

    He also transformed Izzy's hair into what he calls an “elastic Christmas tree” with green rubber bands. And, for another day, he made this Santa hat.

    Wickherst said doing Izzy’s hair means much more than just the cute, fancy styles.

    He said, “We are listening to Christmas music, we are drinking hot chocolate, we are singing songs. I really try to make this into a fun bonding experience for us.”

    He said one of the more difficult holiday styles was "Izzy The Snowman," which was part of a contest held by Daddy Daughter Hair Factory.

    And Wickherst makes sure his daughter's hair looks good year-round, not just at Christmas.

    Wickherst told BuzzFeed that it was something he thought he could never do. He said, “I just tried it a couple times before I was able to do it. Once I got it down, that gave me a huge boost of confidence.”
