There’s a reason why stitch braids have been on trend for, like, ever—they’re a guaranteed cute look that really lasts and doesn’t take hours and hours to get right (hi, looking at you, box braids). In honor of the classic style, Stasha Harris, our braid guru, chose her three favorite stitch braid styles in Braid Up history. Trust—it wasn’t an easy decision, but all of the styles are truly so good. I can’t wait to try them out.

Down to recreate this look? Here’s everything you need to know.
1. Lather up with a sulfate-free shampoo. It’ll cleanse your hair—giving you a good foundation for your braids—without stripping it of its natural oils.
2. Your rat-tail comb is your braiding savior. It’s the best tool to help you get smooth edges and sleek parts. The super-skinny tail allows you to part sections easily, so you can get razor-sharp square parts with zero effort.
3. Dip your braids in hot water. Bring a pot of water to a boil and then carefully dip your braided ends into it. This simple, one-minute step actually seals and secures your look, preventing your braids from unraveling by the end of the day.
4. Set your braids with two pumps of mousse in the a.m. This helps to prevent frizz and flyaways from popping up throughout the day. Work the mousse through your hair in the morning, wrap it up, and then hit it with a blow dryer.
