Are these microbraids?

Hi everyone. :) I have 3a or 3b hair... depending on the day haha. I'm thinking about getting it braided... although I really like this look : as oppossed to this one (that
one still looks really cool though haha)
I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the first one is the same kind of braids just on thicker hair or is it a different style than microbraids? Also has anyone had microbraids and did you like them?
thanks! :)

    Those look like twists, not microbraids.

    They look like Senegalese twist to me. They also look great when the are untwisted. Sort of like locs.
