Most little girls need the help of their mothers to fix their hair every morning before going to school. But for this girl from Utah, having her hair done became impossible after her mom passed away in 2015 due to a disease.
After his wife died, Phillip Pieri has to do roles of both dad and mom for his two children – a daughter and a son. However, there is one thing that he just couldn’t manage to fix, and that is styling his daughter’s hair.
“She’d get mad at me for pulling her hair,” he said in an interview with ABC News. “I didn’t know how to do it.”
To keep things simple, Pieri gave his 11-year-old daughter Isabella a crew cut. When her hair grew back, she tried to fix her hair on her own.
Every day, Pieri leaves early to go to work, so Isabella has to get ready for school all by herself. With no one to fix her hair, she had no choice but to use a ponytail.
Things got better when Tracy Dean, a bus driver, decided to fix Isabella’s hair.
“One day (Isabella) came home and it looked beautiful,” Pieri expressed. He just discovered that Isabella asked Dean’s help to fix her hair after watching the driver styling her classmate’s hair.
“I like to think … what if it were my child? How would I want my child to be treated? And go with it,” Dean, a mom of four and grandmother of six, said.
Since then, Dean fixes Isabella’s hair every morning. “We usually do two French braids first and once in a while she just wants one braid,” she shared.
“It makes me feel like she’s a mom pretty much to me,” Isabella shared. The driver’s generosity has also made a positive impact on the little girl.
“I just noticed her head was a little higher that morning, and she had a little more of a step,” Isabella’s teacher, Mrs. Freeze, said.
Seeing his daughter’s transformation and positive aura, Pieri is very thankful for Dean’s help. “Tracy didn’t have to step up, but she stepped up to help out,” he expressed. “I was amazed.”
