You remember micro braids; the super small braids that took hours to install, but were extremely popular in the early 2000s (back then R&B singer Alicia Keys was the covergirl for the look.) This week model and actress YaYa Dacosta posted a photo rocking a mini cornrowed updo.
My first thought was that the style is elegant and she really pulled it off in her gorgeous yellow gown that she wore to the African Americans in Television Gala. My second thought was that I’ve seen this before, on songbird Jill Scott. Jill opted for a casual, side swept beachy look.
The micro cornrow look seems to be a hot trend this year. Actress Lupita Nyong’o wore micro cornrows surrounded by a crown braid in January at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
There are even a few instagrammers who are picking up on the trend and are doing all kinds of cool looks with the braids. It makes for a great protective style!
Will you rock the micro cornrow trend this fall?
