I got a question ya'll, to get microbraids or box braids does the hair have to be super super long? I mean my fro is pretty big but I'm just wondering if I'm still able to get this style because one of my female friends said she can do my hair for me if I'd like and I was just wondering.

When you say "the hair" are you talking about the packaged hair or your own hair?  The bag hair can be cut to any length and generally the standard bags of hair need to be cut.. unless your buying the short 8" hair.

I duno about geezers and micros.. I think guys look better with canerow but thats just my opinion.. micros on guys are too zesty for my liking lol

2 inches for hair extensions.

But for the love of mac and cheese, do not get extensions if you are a man-- unless that is the look you are going for.  It is not a good look AT ALL and looks very unnatural on males.

Oooh ok, *whoosh* I read microbraids and automatically assumed adding hair lol LOL.

Yeah you look like you have long enough hair to get braids definitely. I have seen done on much shorter hair. Be careful with really small braids because left into long can make them really difficult to take down. Good luck Smile

If you have at least an 1 1/2 - 2 inches of hair it'll be enough. It's good you found someone to braid your hair for you. A couple of months after I bc'ed when I was looking for a hair braider, my friend complained and begged me not to ask her 'cause she has long nails that she likes to keep up. So finding someone who didn't mind "catching" my little hair was a pain. LOL
