One style I go to a lot is Bantu Knots. I don’t know about you but when I wear them, I feel powerful. I remember my mom trying to get me to wear them when I was younger but, of course being in middle school, I thought I’d look weird and get picked on. When I was older, I started to appreciate the style more and the vibe it gave off. It was like I was oozing all kinds of #BlackGirlMagic and no one can stop me. Bantu Knots can be done on any length of hair so the women with TWA’s or that weird, awkward length, y’all can wear them also.
Knots and braids go together perfectly. Add beads on the ends for more decoration.
Larger knots cause less stress than smaller ones plus adding cornrows brings more edge to the knots.
Add a couple twists or plaits to your jumbo knots for a playful take on the style.
Bantu Knots can be glammed up for a different take on special occasion hairstyles. Make a crown out of the knots or add flowers.
How often do you wear Bantu Knots? Do you glam them up or keep it simple?
