)Each morning, 11-year-old Isabella Pieri gets ready on her own. 

Her father leaves for work early, and her mother died after years of battling a rare illness.

Over the years, Isabella’s father has taught her to take care of herself, but there is one area that’s difficult for most dads: hair.

“I originally just gave her a crew cut because I didn’t know how, and it was all tangled and I couldn’t get it out for anything,” Philip Pieri said.

After the crew cut, Isabella took matters into her own hands.

For a long time it was a quick brush, pony tail and then off to school. But a few months ago, something happened.

One morning as kids were getting off the bus, Isabella noticed Tracy fixing a classmates braid and got the courage to ask if she would braid her hair too.

Now, Tracy styles each girls’ hair almost every morning.
