Bring out your African beauty in Bantu knots


If you need a protective hairstyle to rock this season, go for Bantu Knots as they keep the ends tucked away. Bantu knots have been around for a very long time and looks good on women of all ages. There’s no better way to look African but very gorgeous with new recreations of this beautiful style with natural hair.

We have seen celebs like Yemi Alade, Solange Knowles, Rihanna, Lupita Nyongo and others rock these styles to various events and make fashion statements. Bantu knots are used by some as an easy way to prep hair before bed in order to create easy curls. The good thing is that your natural hair is used to create this attractive style. Some ladies even use hair extensions.

Creating Bantu knots includes twisting diverse sections of the hair and wrapping it around into a Bantu knot. Interestingly, any hair type or texture can do the knots and they can be styled in different ways. For some it will create loose waves while others will get that curly effect.


There are various styles that ladies can go for to make them look lovely and stand out at different events like braided bantu knots, micro, twisted, Mohawk bantu knots and other nice styles. If you don’t want your knot to be too simple, just add twisting or braided designs in between your knots to look unique. You can also adorn your Bantu knots with hair jewellery to give it that stylish effect.
