Today is Part 6 of our Wedding Hair Series featuring the ladies from my bridal party. If you missed Parts 1 thru 5, check the bottom of this post for links to those posts. Today’s post features another of the natural bridesmaids who has 4b hair.  Her hair is very coarse and extremely coily so can “draw-up” to half  (or less) of its out-stretched length. Her hair was also braided the day before the wedding.  For her...
