The Know-How On Knots
Bantu Knots are big this season. And if you want proof, just gaze on the hip hairdo as worn by young actress Amandla Stenberg in this shot. Bantu Knots are great for Naturalistas—as well as for anyone looking for a cool way to do an upsweep this season. To know how to knot, begin with damp tresses (they’re easier to work with). Your call on whether to prime tresses with leave-in conditioner or a styling cream—whichever will deliver the control and hold you’re looking for. Then, part mane in the pattern of your choice; diamond-shaped partings look cool. Taking hair sections within the partings, begin twisting strands until it begins to coil into the cute “knots” you desire. Tuck ends under and use a small hair pin if needed. The best part: When you’re done rocking these knots, release tresses for a lush, full, curly coif!
