Saying Goodbye To The Bob

Posted In: Lifestyle
My Dad always said “girls should have long hair” so that was instilled in me from a very young age. I think that’s why I have always had my hair long, even super long sometimes with the help of a weave. With this in mind, it seemed a no brainer that I would grow my hair even longer for my wedding, so I did. I grew it long and luscious and was able to p[...]
