WATCH: Steelers' DeAngelo Williams, other NFL players attempt to style their daughters' hair

Written by Edgar Ramirez on .


"Definitely stepping out of my comfort zone."

As evident in these videos, DeAngelo Williams is not alone.

The Steelers running back is one of three other NFL players that is taking part in Pantene Pro-V's "Strong Is Beautiful" campaign.

In the first video, Williams tackles his kindergartner Rhiya's hair.

"The *only* style I'm able to do is a ponytail," Williams warns.

Sure enough, he runs into a couple of obstacles in attempting a new 'do, not to mention when Rhiya throws him a curve ball in asking "Daddy, can you, like, put the bow inside the braid?"

"You know what's easier for me is running through a defensive line because I have help running through that defensive line," Williams jokes.

The end result? The DeAngelo Williams Curtain Call — aka Twisted Pigtails. Take a look:

In the second video, Williams doesn't have it any easier with his younger daughter Reyna.

"You going to let me do your hair?" Right off the bat, Reyna responds by running away.

Hair aside, what makes the video worth watching is Reyna's "Here We Go Steelers" chant — not to mention the end result of The DeAngelo Williams Princess Samurai aka Princess Puff hairdo.

Well done, Williams.

Other players that took part:

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten

"Catching a touchdown pass is a lot easier than making a beautiful braid."

New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson

"Feels like mommy but he has bigger hands."
"It might be the hand thing that makes this thing difficult."
