There are two kinds of husbands. There are the ones who support any choices his partner makes, whether it be a new hobby, a career change or a drastic haircut. The other is the type who scoffs at the idea of a weekly Zumba class, finds only the negatives with a new job and compares a new hairstyle to that of his spouse’s mother. Thankfully, this is the story of the first kind of husband.
Praize Kirkwood took to Facebook to share a video of her anxious mother unveiling her new look to her husband, and Dad couldn’t have reacted in a more perfect way.
So after 20 years of growing her dreads my mom wanted to cut off her hair. She wasn’t sure how my dad would react tho….but this is how he did. 😭🤧 pic.twitter.com/Nih3jH2qSb

It really doesn’t get any better or sweeter than that. He is clearly shocked — but in a good way. Especially considering what Mom’s hair used to look like.
For everyone asking about my moms hair length before she cut her hair. There you go 💃🏽 pic.twitter.com/aBYFSgEADF

Like we said, it could’ve been this:
I had hair that long, cut it to the shoulders & it took my husband almost 6 hours to notice.

But instead, we were treated to this moment of loveliness, the kind of pureness we all need right now. And it seems the people of Twitter agree.
Your mom is so beautiful & your dad just fell in love with her all over again 💕
