Your Heart Will Melt Watching These NFL Dads Style Their Daughters' Hair
We're gearing up for arguably the biggest event in sports history — the Super Bowl — and for football-lovers, the game is a moment of glory. For beauty junkies, however, the action serves as just another reason to watch clever commercials, master festive nail art ideas, and (hello!) Beyoncé. But if you intend to tune into the game and then promptly tune out, these videos will convince you to do otherwise.
Pantene enlisted four NFL pros and their daughters for the latest installment of its Strong Is Beautiful campaign. The dads were asked to face off in a task possibly tougher than scoring a touchdown — styling their girls' strands. Each dad is given a play on a particular style for his lil' lady's mane: a ballerina bun (that somehow ended up in pigtails), princess topknots, and other plaited styles decked out in clips and barrettes.
While many of us grew up with our moms as our designated hairstylists, it's easy to relate to these adorable girls as they sit and get pampered by their dads. We're used to seeing athletes be tough on the field, and it's easy to forget that when the timer is up, they go home to be family men. Watching them maneuver their wide-receiver hands through their daughters' hair is a refreshing reminder that their biggest job is being a hilarious dad.
Not only will these videos take you back to the day your dad had to get you ready for school, but they also hold a more meaningful message. Sure, moms might have a knack for giving you a more polished updo, but it's important for dads to get in on the fun too. The experience serves as more than just styling — it creates a special daddy-daughter bond that is ultimately unbreakable. Try not to let your heart explode while watching these.
