A bride has gone viral on social media for embracing her natural gray hair on her wedding day.

On 2 July, Miami makeup specialist Tia Codrington took to TikTok to share a video of her client, Kadeja Jackson Baker, looking absolutely gorgeous while rocking her natural hair color on her special day.

"I loved my bride's natural gray hair. She's had it since she was 16," Codrington wrote in the overlay text as Baker is seen getting makeup applied to her face while she has her gray strands pin-curled up.

Immediately after posting, Codrington's video garnered attention on the social media platform, amassing 2 million views and over 270,000 likes.

Hundreds of people on the video-sharing app commented about how beautiful Jackson looked at her wedding and praised her for choosing to keep the natural look.

One user shared: "I had mine since I was 10, I pray it gets like that. she’s so beautiful."

Another commented: "She is breathtaking!!!"

A third chimed in and said: "I think grey hair looks soooo amazing, like i genuinely can’t wait until my greys starting coming."

A fourth user joked: "I’m gonna embrace my grays one day…. not today though."

The makeup artist spoke to Good Morning America about Baker's stunning bridal look and the overwhelming support for her hair on social media.

"I initially didn't have any expectations when posting the videos other than to share her beauty through my eyes, but witnessing how she embraced and embodied the beauty of her hair was something I felt compelled to share," Codrington said.

"It was amazing to know that she had options to change her hair color or try something different for that day, but chose to be herself and wear her natural hair color," she added.

The 38-year-old bride also spoke about the social media response to her hair, saying that she was "shocked" by the replies she received.

"I did not expect for the responses to be as plentiful as I look at myself in the mirror every day and did not think it was that big of a deal that I was embracing my natural hair and look," she said.

"Being the best version of yourself is the best thing you can offer to the world," Baker added.
