A single dad in Colorado has easily become a strong contender for 'Father of the Year'
近日,美国科罗拉多州(Colorado)一位单亲爸爸轻而易举地成为“年度爸爸”的热门人选。

Greg Wickherst, of Pueblo, has primary custody of his daughter, Izzy, after splitting from the three-year-old's mother.
来自普韦布洛(Pueblo)的格雷格•威克斯特(Greg Wickherst)与妻子离婚后,成为三岁女儿伊西(Izzy)的第一监护人。

But as he adjusted to parenting a little girl by himself, there was one main obstacle - doing her hair.
但在适应独自抚养小女儿的过程中,他遇到了一个大麻烦——帮女儿扎头发。

As an admissions representative at the IntelliTec College, he decided to turn to the cosmetology department for help.
作为美国智能科技学院(IntelliTec College)的招生代表,他决定向美容系求助。

After speaking with some students about his situation, Wickherst started spending his lunch breaks getting tutorials from a cosmetologist.
在和一些学生讲述了他的情况后,威克斯特开始利用午休时间接受美容师的指导。

'I spent a couple hours just working on a mannequin and she showed me how to do a bun, a French braid, all the different styles,' he told Buzzfeed News.
他向新闻聚合网站Buzzfeed新闻(Buzzfeed News)表示:“我花几个小时在人体模特上练习,美容师会为我演示如何盘发髻,怎么绑法式辫子,还有梳所有不同发型的方法。”

And Wickherst picked the rest up incredibly quickly.
威克斯特以极其惊人的速度迅速学会了其余的扎发技巧。

'It blew my mind how easy it was to do a bun,' he said.
“令我惊讶的是,原来盘发髻是那么容易的事儿。”他说。

'I thought it was something super special, like real intricate, especially the one where you don't finish pulling the ponytail.
“我以为盘头是种极其特别的发型、非常精细复杂的事,尤其是不把马尾辫卷进去的那种。

'I thought, Oh my god, that's so pretty for something that's so simple...
“我心想,我的天哪,这样简单的发型竟能那么美……

'I don't think most guys know that it's that simple.'
“我认为大多数人都不知道盘发髻那么简单。”

The result?
成效如何呢?

Wickherst has not only become quite the hair stylist, but his newfound craft has made him a sensation on Facebook, where he posts pictures of his work, some of which are his own creations.
如今,威克斯特不仅成了像模像样的美发师,而且还凭借这门新学的手艺成了Facebook上的红人。他把自己的作品发到Facebook上,其中有些还是他自己的创意。

Furthermore, doing Izzy's hair is the best part of his day.
此外,给伊西扎头发是他生活中最美好的部分。

'My favorite part of the day is when I wake her up and get her out of bed and she’s still sleepy, so she nuzzles her face into my neck,' he said.
“每天我最喜欢的时光就是当我叫醒她,让她起床的时候。那会儿她仍然睡眼惺忪,因此会把小脸蛋埋进我的颈窝磨蹭。

'That love right there, feeling that love and that trust is the most rewarding part.'
“爱就在那里,感受孩子的爱与信任就是最大的回报。”
