Braiding hair is one of the most popular hairstyles among women. We can say that this is also a timeless hairstyle option that will make the African American women even more stunning as it will easily flatter the style and any face type.
One of the popular braiding styles is micro braid, the one we will talk about here today. To make the most of micro braiding, the length of your hair may not be a significant matter at all.
#1. Create Bun with Your Braids!

Don’t get confused with the title first because the final look of this braided hairstyle is too fabulous to miss, right? Find out how the micro braids are treated as if they are strands of hair.
Simply let it all down and then divide them into three sections just like when you’re going to braid your hair at any time.

#4. Simply Let Your Braids All Down!
We personally find the all down hair is most likely the best way to pull off the micro braids. When hair in common, natural condition may find it difficult to deal with the tress, this problem is a stranger to micro braids.
Choose any side to part your hair, braid it, and… voila! You have a cool hairstyle that will get you ready to look fabulous all day! Well, isn’t being the coolest girl so easy?
#5. Half Braided with a Bun
If you are not really interested in braiding all the strands, it does not mean you do not have a chance to enjoy the awesome look of adding braids to flatter your hairstyle.
Take a look at this cute and adorable cross over micro braids carefully added on the back of the head with a beautiful bun nesting at the crown of the head.
See how this beautiful hairstyle can also make a great choice for your little kid when she’s about to attend her friend’s birthday party!
#6. Half Updo? No Problem!
Who says the only option you have is to updo or not to updo? A half updo hairstyle can make a fabulous choice for you who may find a complete updo is too formal for you.
Take a small section of your hair from each side and pull it to the back. You can braid them or tuck them neatly to form a bun-like at the nape level, while the rest of your hair is left simply all down to flaunt the fabulous details of each micro braid!
#7. Micro Braids + Cornrows = Perfection
Micro braids are not the only popular choice among African American women as there is cornrow as well.
If you’re too confused to make your decision between those hairstyle options, then why don’t you simply combine them?
As you can see, they will make the best combination to flatter your look and style anytime of the year! Even better, you can also get really creative with your cornrow by incorporating cool pattern into the detail!
#8. Try Micro Box Braids!
Alternatively, you can also try the box braids too. Similar to the all down hairstyle with micro braids, this one also has the fabulous details to make a simple hairstyle even more awesome and cool to look at and wear.
Bear in mind that even though the all down hair really is simple, it will not look as cool and fabulous if you do not maintain and care for your hair condition properly.
This means you must prep the hair before putting on the braids. Washing your hair everyday is also a must since the braids will hold moisture easier.
But don’t forget to moisture your hair too. And when you sleep, cover it with silk or satin scarf to keep the braids neat.
#9. Funky Bun
This hairstyle is one you definitely should never miss! See how the bun nests on the top of the head while the rest of the braided hair is left all down?
The combination of two different hairstyles here surely is too unique to be missed, right? This is another proof of how versatile and flexible the micro braids really are!
Again and again, see how this unique hairstyle can look even more fabulous with the micro braids.
#10. Another Fabulous Half Updo to Wear
