Father-Daughter Hairstyling Video Goes Viral

A Lexington father and daughter are a hit on Youtube after their "Daddy's Version of the Bun" video went viral.

When it comes to his 7-year-old daughter, Jordyn, Earl Raglin will do pretty much anything to make her happy.

"If it's some little hairstyle that she wants and I can't do it, I will learn how to do it," he said.

Whether it's giving her the latest hairdo or using his unorthodox hair skills to make her dream of having a Youtube video come true.

"She wanted me to post a video of her on Youtube, so I was like why not," he said.

The Lexington father and daughter shot their hair routine, posted it online and in a matter of weeks, Jordyn's twirling went viral with more than 100,000 people watching the video.

"It's changing every day which is kind of surprising us," Raglin said.

Even more surprising was a call from the Today Show.

"I couldn't believe it at first and then we saw it and it was like wow," he said.

The 30 second heart melting clip that's inspiring dads to tackle tangled tresses aired on the Today Show July 18.

"Just makes me proud," Raglin said. "Seeing her smile, seeing her happy."

Following the Today Show appearance, more than 20,000 people had watched the video.

The single father said he's still getting calls from other TV shows who want to use the video.
