PHOENIX -- This morning Veronica from Beauty by Veronica shared some great tips for dads who have to get their little girls ready for school by doing their hair.

Veronica says don't be afraid to try different ideas. But first things first. When you start the process you need to get all the tangles out. You can wet hair down with a spray bottle  or put a little bit of detangling spray or gel in the hair to help. Always comb out the tangles from the bottom of the hair upward so that it doesn't pull so much.

Once the hair is combed,  you can also put a little extra shine gel or a product meant to stop frizzies lightly all through the girl's hair. Remember, a little bit goes a long way, so use product sparingly.

Although  the  ponytail is a dad's favorite because it's one of the easiest hairstyles, Veronica says you can vary it up a little by doing a half-up-half-down style. Take the front part of the hair and sides up into a small pony and then let  it hang over the back of the hair that you've straightened.

For putting in clips, make sure that you part the hair on one side or down the middle and hold the hair down tight as you slip a clip in and secure it.  The same goes for bangs if you're trying to push them to the side and keep then out of the child's eyes.

When using a flat iron, make sure you put a comb underneath the child's hair to separate the scalp and hair away from the child's head and so that you don't touch the hair, which can be hot.  And  if you're nervous about  curling irons, just curl  the very ends of the hair and don't get the hot iron anywhere near their scalp.
