35 Chic And Fab Bantu Knots Hairstyles + Tutorial

Bantu knots are a traditional African hairstyle that has been around for centuries and has been reinvented over the decades. The iconic hairstyle is said to have originated with the Zulu tribes of South Africa but has become very popular today with all women of African heritage across the world.

According to NaturallyCurly Branded Content Editor Gerilyn Hayes, “Bantu knots are also known as Zulu knots because the Zulu people, a Bantu ethnic group, are the originators of the look we love and wear today.”

The Bantu knots hairstyle is so chic, timeless, and cool that since American celebrities discovered it, it’s remained the look to rock for an effortless standout look. It is traditional, edgy, and sexy and it really doesn’t get more versatile than that for a hairstyle.

How to do Bantu knots

Being a protective do, Bantu knots is one that helps to tuck away the tips of the hair which is prone to damage easily. They are made by twisting your hair and/or extensions around itself until it forms a knot. The hairstyle is one that can be easily done by the wearer for those who love to do their hair by themselves. Hello DIY queens!

The hairstyle can be achieved on short, medium, and long hair, with or without extensions. It can be styled on natural, relaxed, braided, or even loc’d hair. Your knots can also be accessorized with a variety of hair jewelry as you deem fit. Be sure to match your makeup to your hairdo as a complementary face beat is always the icing on the cake.

The best part about having your hair styled in these knots lies in the fact that once you take them off, your hair is all curled up and you can rock the loose curls for a few extra days before heading off to the salon for a new look. A win-win, right?
