Ladies (and possibly long-haired gents), stop, drop everything, and grab a brush and hair tie—it's Braid Bible time!

If you tuned in last week, you saw how to create pigtail Dutch braids. This week we're scaling it back with a quick micro braid tutorial. Scan through these easy, step-by-step instructions on how to DIY the look yourself. Although this one is great for all hair types, it's particularly perfect for short-haired Influensters since the braid begins at the front of the head and runs along your part.

Step 1: Make sure your hair is completely brushed through to avoid any tangle trouble mid-braid.

Step 2: Give yourself a middle part using a fine-toothed comb. Now, make two more parts—one on either side of the center. They should form two sections of hair about an inch wide each. (Important note: make sure your part continues all the way down your head to your neck). At this point, you should have three parts beginning at the top of your head.

Step 3:  Before we begin the braid, you should grab two hair ties and section off the hair you aren't braiding (the face-framing pieces).

Step 4: Separate the hair into three sections and prepare to weave a classic Dutch-style braid. Start with the right piece under the middle, then the left under the middle, and so on. Remember to add a little more hair each time you pull from each side. Be sure to take even strands for a cohesive look!

Step 5: Repeat the three-strand Dutch braid pattern until you reach the back of your head, then finish the length of your hair with a classic, three-strand braid. 

Step 6: At the bottom, tie off  with a hair elastic. We love these hair ties to keep the look subtle; but if you're feeling adventurous, try Goody SlideProof Spiky Soft Touch Hair Elastics to finish with a pop of color. 

Step 7: Repeat steps 3-6 on the remaining half of your hair. 

Step 8: Voila! You're done. Now go show off your gorgeous masterpiece!
