Micro Braids & African Micro Braids

What Are Micro Braids?

Micro Braids are an elegant and refined style featuring small, delicate braids. They are sometimes called "invisible braids." They come in several different sizes and lengths, and take about 7 to 9 hours to complete. Micro Braids styles are highly customizable.

For example, they can be combined with Cornrows. You can even curl Micro Braids for a different kind of look! When properly cared for, Micro Braids can stay gorgeous for up to three months.

What to Consider Before Getting Micro Braids

Don't get Micro Braids if your hair is brittle. Shorter hair takes better to Micro Braids than longer hair, because very lengthy hair is more susceptible to breakage when woven into Micro Braids.

If you are considering doing your hair in one of the Micro Braids styles, it's a smart idea to consult a professional hair braider to learn whether your hair type can be successfully done in Micro Braids. Before Micro Braiding, clip the hair ends and have a hot oil treatment.
