THE JOURNEY TO ACCEPTANCE

As a teenager, Baker struggled to love her gray hair. She believed it was only for older women and dyed her hair for many years. However, in about 2015, she made a bold change, wearing her natural gray hair.

Many women revealed they would never be able to embrace their gray hair. But Codrington quickly offered them a powerful word of encouragement.

People often asked her about her hair color, curious about the products she used to attain the look. Baker always informed them, "This is my natural hair color."

THE HAIR INFLUENCED THE MAKEUP

Codrington used Baker's hair as her makeup inspiration, picking colors that complimented the gray hair. The look needed to be cohesive, and the makeup artist did an excellent job bringing the bride's features together. She revealed:

"Instead of opting for a nude lipstick, I chose a beautiful mauve lip color that paired well against her hair and skin complexion."
