Kind Bus Driver Braids Young Girl’s Hair Every Morning After Her Mom Died

This amazing story has achieved viral success, and for a good reason!  What`s the story about? Read on to find out!

A kind-hearted bus driver from Utah has been styling the hair of a little girl whose mother passed away a couple of years ago.

Tracy Dean, the loveliest school bus driver, has been braiding Isabelle Pieri’s hair every single morning since the girl lost her mother.  The fact that the poor girl was having difficulty styling her hair didn’t escape her notice, and she didn’t hesitate to help her out.

Isabelle`s mom, Patricia Pier, passed away three years ago from a very rare brain illness.  Her little girl had trouble fixing her hair, among other things. The good news is that Tracy was there to give her a hand!  As part of their morning routine, the lovely bus driver began braiding the girl`s hair. 

“I can tell she was struggling with her hair.

We usually do two French braids first and once in a while she just wants one braid. I also taught her how to brush her hair.

She’d get on the bus and she’d say, ‘I brushed my hair. Does it look good?’

I’ll say, ‘You did awesome,’” she told the ABC.

The kind-hearted bus driver is a mom of four kids, one of which is Isabelle` age.

As she explains, helping the little girl out with fixing her hair is not a problem at all, and she actually got used to it and really enjoys it!

“It’s just the way my mom raised me, to be nice to everyone—people who need a little love in their life.”

Philip Pieri, the girl`s dad, worked at a convenience store close to his home in American Fork, Utah. After his wife passed away, he did try styling Isabelle`s hair, but simply couldn’t manage.  He is more than grateful to this amazing woman who selflessly takes care of his girl and turned her into the princess that she is.  

“She’d get mad at me for pulling her hair. I didn’t know how to do it. One day [Isabella] came home and it looked beautiful. I call her my princess and she looks the part, she plays the part and her confidence is way up, which is what I’ve been intending,” he says.

As he explains, fixing his daughter`s hair was quite difficult for him. And, all he could do was giving her a crew cut,  which as you know is a haircut in which the upright hair on the top of the head is cut relatively short. Luckily, Tracy came into their lives and brightened this little girl`s life.  At least she could show off her hairstyles without feeling embarrassed.

Needless to say, Isabelle is more than grateful for Tracy`s kind gesture!

“Tracy is the best bus driver in the whole galaxy!” she exclaims.
