10. Bantu knots – Short-term protective style
Although not common as a stand-alone hairstyle, there are some edgy and bold Bantu knot styles that you may have seen that are just bomb. You can make them fancy with cornrow details, add hair accessories like beads or rings or just wear the plain Bantu knots for a simple playful look.
Bantu knots are of course a short-term hairstyle and will last from a few days to a week but you can also get a second style out of them. Let the individual Bantu knots loose and separate the resulting curls for a gorgeous curly look.
