    Layton, Utah (KSL) It's no secret most dads struggle with doing their daughters' hair. From finicky French braids to impossible ponytails, it seems big, strong hands aren't meant to handle such delicate strands of hair. A group in Layton, Utah is trying to change that. On Wednesday night, Layton Community School, with the help of local beauty school Avalon, held a Daddy-Daughter hairdo class at Layton High School to arm dads with the tools they need to tackle the task.
