Video: Dad Fixes Daughter's Ponytail In Five Seconds. See How!

Fed-up of sorting our your child's hair before school each and every day? Here's a novel idea from an early front runner for this year's Dad of the Year: Use a hoover nozzle.

In this short but sweet clip uploaded to YouTube, a dad who has better things to do than preen the perfect ponytail shows us how it's done using a hoover attachment and a hairband.

Job done. And his daughter doesn't seem to mind!
