My only question seeing this film: why is the dad so confused about doing his daughter’s hair when his own hair is so elaborate?

I realize this is a question only a white person could ask.

Because girl-hairstyles is different than boy-hairstyles.

Matthew Cherry was on the Daily Show a couple of weeks ago; he talked about how learning to do his daughter’s hair was partly about being a good loving dad, but also about being a good loving husband. If his wife has to work late, or go out of town a couple of days for her job, it matters that he can properly groom the child.
