Surely you're already hip to the fact that French braids are an everlasting vibe. They can be dressed up or down and can help protect your natural hair without putting too much stress on it. So, may we suggest adding today's lovely Braid Up look to your style inspo files? These French-braided mini buns are def worth obsessing over.

The master behind today's work, New Jersey-based stylist Dasia Lewis, did an impeccable job of convincing me that life simply can't go on without this style in it. Don't believe me? Watch to see the final masterpiece. And read on for intel on how you can do these braids justice on your own:

1. Prep with leave-in conditioner. Priming your hair with a moisturizing leave-in will set you up for success before the braiding even begins. This is a great step to include before getting any protective style done, tbh, because it'll help keep your hair hydrated inside your braids.

2. Section evenly. Lopsided braids and buns are not what we want with this look. Section off your hair with a set of styling clips to keep the parting process organized and help keep your braids tight.

3. Add some sparkle. Incorporate some ~bling~, like hair cuffs and rings, sporadically throughout your braids to up the ante (which, obviously, we always wanna do).

4. Give yourself some shade variation. The golden-blonde braiding hair in today's episode created a gorgeous final style with lots of dimension. But if the blonde's not your vibe, explore other feed-in hair options! Auburn, light brown, or even colorful ombré would look amazing.
