Black Hairstyles

These stylish and elaborate looking manes are tress goals! Bantu Knots have taken over social media and magazines and never fail to look stunning. This easy-to-recreate style can be done over the entire head or just on a small section, which means you can customize it to fit your style needs.

Cool Contrast
Cute coils, bangin’ braid and captivating knots.

Get the look: Hairdresser Danielle Easterling, from Danie Nikol Salon in Lanham, MD, created these trendy tresses that stun from all angles. Ruby spirals cascade over one side while braided Bantu Knots dominate opposite side. A single bead-adorned braid is left free to accent.


Gilded Texture
A full head of honey colored knots.

Get the look: Rayna Nash, of It’s A Natural Thang in College Park, GA, is the artist behind this bold hairdo. Dark chocolate roots are parted into triangular sections with each portion twisted into tight, tall golden Bantu knots.

‘Frohawk Knots
Big hair and even bigger style.

Get the look: This detailed coif is for a real fashionista. Karmen, of HairByKarmen in Redwood City, CA, divided locks into two sections from an off-center part. One area is molded into a texturized Afro that curves around the head and the other is styled into medium-sized Bantu Knots.
