Leave it to Dad to devise a way to style the perfect ponytail in less than five seconds.

In a recently posted Youtube video, a father puts his daughter's hair into a ponytail with the help of a vacuum cleaner.

The dad's vacuum technique also made a splash on social news site Reddit this week. Some users even wrote in that they wished their fathers had thought of this vacuum technique.

"It just occurred to me that the reason I never went to school with brushed hair as a kid was because my dad used to get me ready in the morning," wrote one Redditor. "I thought it was perfectly normal to have crazy, tangled hair... On the bright side, he always made sure I ate breakfast!"

However, other users weren't completely sold on the idea of using a vacuum to style hair.

"In theory this is a good idea for dads, but speaking as one with a daughter I don't think it would work well in practice. I wouldn't have a clue where to look for the vacuum cleaner," wrote another Reddit user.

While it's not the first time we've seen a busy dad use a vacuum to make a ponytail, it may be the fastest use of the quick hairdo technique yet.

Watch how this father creates the perfect ponytail in the video above -- but don't try it at home!
