“She’s like my little bodyguard,” Benny Harlem (@bennyharlem), an artist and musician from Los Angeles, says of his 6-year-old daughter Jaxyn. “I laugh every single morning when she reminds me that I’m her best friend — but she has four other ones too.” The duo bonds taking pictures — and washing their show-stopping hair together daily. Benny started growing his as a teenager, inspired by his beautician mother. “It’s just a part of our family, taking care of our bodies, taking care of our minds, taking care of our hair,” he says. And as much as Jaxyn looks out for her dad, Benny doesn’t take his role lightly. “Fatherhood is a miracle and an honor. To be loved and greeted with gratitude from your child for this gift is fulfilling.”
