While most kids her age are playing make-believe or, you know, curating their sticker books, a five-year-old named Magnolia is creating works of art with hair. And not simply with her American Girl dolls, but on adult-sized mannequins boasting full heads of hair...

Taking after her mama, pro-stylist educator Jenny Strebe (opens in new tab), the kindergartner is impressively seasoned in braids and updos—from the classics, like the faux bob, to free-styled bridal looks inspired by Princess Belle (who let's be honest, was the O.G. of half-buns (opens in new tab)).

Based out of Scottsdale, Arizona, she's already got quite the following on Instagram thanks to her adorable how-to videos, which have garnered hundreds of thousands of views. And as if her gargantuan fan base isn't impressive enough, she already has an official job under her belt—styling hair for a local toddler fashion show. In other words, watch your back Odile Gilbert (opens in new tab).
