7 Heat-Protective Microbraid Styles to Get You Ready for Warmer Weather

"Microbraids are a protective style that has been trending for years, especially in the colder months," explains Carol's Daughter hairstylist Stephanie McLemore. "They are extremely versatile and can be styled with endless possibilities. You can add color, leave them loose at the ends, and wear them in a radiant updo. Microbraids are very small in diameter and take several hours to get, so make sure you carve out time. This style can be worn on hair that is healthy and thick in diameter. If your hair is fine, damaged, weak, or thin, as a professional stylist with years of experience, I would not recommend this service."

Here's every striking way to wear microbraids we've been eyeing, plus a few iconic throwbacks.
