For all the praise Bantu knots receive, they might still be underrated as far as curly protective styles go. The historic style (originally conceptualized and worn by the Zulu people of South Africa) manages to be elegant, artistic, edgy—easily fitting into almost any context or occasion, while also being a two in one style. If styled a certain way, taking down Bantu knots after a day or two will usually reveal springy, heat-free curls. And because Bantu knots involve twisting and wrapping the hair onto itself and keeping the ends tucked away, it can truly be considered among the elite of protective styles.
In short, this style deserves its flowers, and then some! If you’ve been thinking about switching to Bantu knots this season—or if we’ve just convinced you—keep reading for 4 style ideas to get your creativity flowing.
1. Jumbo Braided Bantu Knots
Looking for a bit more boldness? Grab some braiding hair and braid the Bantu knots before wrapping and securing them. The more hair added, the bigger the knots.
2. Bantu Knots and Braids
Two braids at the side of the neck really add another layer of elegance to this look. Feel free to get creative with baby hair formation.
3. “Messy” Bantu Knots
This is the Bantu knot equivalent of the “messy bun.” No need to perfect each knot. In fact, you can leave out tendrils of hair to add to the whole “I woke up like this” aesthetic.
4. Bantu Knots on Long Curls
For those who want to showcase their natural length, keep it simple. Add a few Bantu knots in a crown formation at the top of the head, and fluff them out to the desired thickness. The looser the knot, the bigger it will appear, and vice versa.
