Micro braided hairstyles is one of the most popular types of braided hairstyles I see in the African and African American hair community. Micro braided are smaller size braided that can be curly, straight, or wavy. These braided tend to take longer to install in the hair, but they can last longer than other braided as well. Micro braided start with a braided at the root and after about an inch or so, the stylist will form a knot in the hair. This knot helps seal the extension hair onto your real hair, and ensures that the braided will not unravel or fall out. Once this is complete the hair is then allowed to free fall creating the illusion of having longer hair verses that of traditional braids that are braided all the way to the ends of the hair.
