There are so many ways for daughters and dads to bond. While some fathers play tea party or dress-up games with their cute princesses, this one-of-a-kind father-daughter duo formed a very close bond through something different: Voluminous, natural, and beautiful hair!
New York-based artist Benny Harlem has been sharing photos of himself and his little princess, Jaxyn, on his Instagram account since 2015.
However, these photos are completely different from the traditional father-daughter pictures taken on weddings, family vacations, and graduations.
These photos showed the incredible feature father and daughter have in common: Their unique long hair, which caused a buzz on the Internet. Thanks to stunning photos showcasing their voluminous locks, Harlem has amassed over 470K followers on his Instagram page.
His little daughter, Jaxyn, doesn't trail far behind him, however. Her Instagram account has also garnered a large number of followers, over 87,000, to be precise.
In an interview to The Huffington Post, Harlem reveals why he decided to share such unique photos: To bring back some old views of fatherhood and family.
In addition, he said that he follows a very protective parenting approach, teaching his little daughter the importance of self-respect and self-love. He puts Jaxyn on a pedestal in all aspects of his life.
Embracing her natural beauty and hair is another part of Harlem's message for his daughter. He believes there's no point in existence if humans don't love themselves and don't accept their nature.
Benny admits that their family has their own secret recipe for a shampoo made from naturally derived components. To keep their locks magnificent, the two make this shampoo on their own.
Benny believes that the movement of men with big, natural growing hair is still in its infancy. However, he wants to inspire others to wear their hair as crowns - crowns of glory.
Although Benny is an aspiring model, singer, artist, and songwriter, he credits fatherhood as the most important gift of his life.
Fortunately, his daughter feels the exact same way, writing numerous heart-melting messages to Benny on her Instagram.
Could this father-daughter duo be the ultimate inspiration for what parenting goals should look like? What do you think? Share your opinion in comments!
