Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams’ Daughter Has Lovely Natural Hair That Dad is Learning to Style 

Alexis Ohanian, co-founder and executive chairman of Reddit married to tennis superstar Serena Williams, wants to learn how to style his 20-month-old baby girl Alexis Olympia’s natural hair.

The Internet entrepreneur and investor sought out advice on social media.

Ohanian tweeted on Thursday:

Not only did Twitter users applaud Ohanian for wanting to be that dad who grooms his daughter’s hair, but they also started providing helpful tips on where he could find knowledge.

Some men posted pictures proudly showing how they’ve styled their daughter’s hair:

Others recommended books, such as Matthew A. Cherry’s recent release “Hair Love,” illustrated by Vashti Harrison. Cherry is a former NFL wide receiver turned filmmaker. “Hair Love” is a book based on the animated short film, which is the story of a father, Stephen, and his relationship with his daughter Zuri and her hair.

One Tweet summed up the sentiment on Ohanian’s Twitter thread:

Ohanian, whose grandparents came to the US as refugees after the Armenian Genocide, wrote a letter to his younger self in March as part of CBS’ Note to Self series.

“You’ll spend your whole life creating: websites, companies, even logos that millions of people love, but none of those compare to how proud of you are of your most important creation: your family,” he wrote.
