30 Photos That Prove Bantu Knots are a Wearable Style

Though bantu knots have been around for a LONG time, more and more naturals are demonstrating that we inherently emanate regality in the style.  Bantu knots are more than just a means to an end; they are are more than just a technique to set the hair into curls.  Bantu knots are a wearable style, and with both the knots and the knot out, you can get two looks in one.  Here is how:

Yes, I went to the shop and got a bantu knots to take out the next morning for a conference I was presenting at. They looked so cute that I didn’t take them out for like a week and a half. I just loved the way they looked, and so did almost everyone (black, white, etc) who encountered me. I didn’t go a day without a compliment.

Yay A hair article. Love the styles. I had finally got the hang of Bantu knots but I just can’t sleep comfortably in them so I quit. Any suggestions are appreciated.
