This dadhack lets you do your daughter’s hair in no time flat

No matter how late you’re running, a kid can always slow you down. She has to be clothed, she has to be fed, and oh god, her hair is a mess! How do we deal with messes? We break out the vacuum cleaner, of course.

This ponytail shortcut doesn’t seem that much easier than just gathering those flaxen strands in one hand—and it probably leaves more dust behind than mom would consider ideal—but hey, points for ingenuity, I guess.

Sure, this little girl seems impressed, but deep down she’s dreading dad’s next time-saving lifehack: backyard hose baths can’t be far off.
