A mom was shocked when her electrician husband had got their daughters ready for school - and did their hair using zip ties.

Chelsea Kunz, 35, overslept one day so her husband Matt, 37, got their two daughters ready for school instead.

Electrician Matt didn't want to wake Chelsea by going in her bedroom to find their hair bobbles so made use of the items at hand.

He dug into his toolbox and used zip ties on Scout, four, and Hendrix, two, to do their ponytails for school on December 12, 2022.

Chelsea, from southern Utah, woke up and found the situation hilarious - because the zip ties worked better than expected.

She said: "He thought it would make me laugh - and it did.

"He thought they would be really durable in the hair and they did work out great.

"They did start to slip out a bit and obviously we changed them for normal hair ties before they went to school.

"But they gave us all a laugh - the girls especially found it super funny.

"Hendrix is in the phase where she hates a hairbrush when I do it - but she'll let her dad do anything."
