micro braids hairstyles

Micro braids hairstyles have been around for years now but it seems like they are losing their momentum as the natural hair craze picks up speed. 9 1/2 times out of ten if you see a micro braid style it’s going to involve some weave or hair extensions which is NOT what many all natural hairstyling women use. They are more likely to rock regular braids or cornrows for protection of their ends.

I must say they still look great though when done correctly because they can be styled with more options because of the usual length of extensions chosen when braided up by a stylist. Even though I have been natural for over 11 years I get micro’s when I go the route of getting braided up.
