There are different styles of micro braids which are very popular today.
African-Americans usually wear short afros with textured hair. When individuals decide to braid their afros, they often put them in cornrows.
Cornrows are braids close to the scalp that usually follow a vertical, horizontal or diagonal pattern, which resembles rows of corn in a field. Cornrow braids are low-maintenance hairstyles, allowing you to protect your hair from breakage.
Braiding short afros can prove challenging because of the length of the hair. Understanding the braiding steps can help you create professional-looking braids from your short afro.
