Bantu knots have always been hot, but we’ve been seeing them everywhere lately. The trendy hairstyle was created many years ago to categorize hundreds of ethnic groups within South Africa. One of the groups called Zulu started an ethnic group known as Bantu. This is where the style originated. Today, celebrities are rocking this style while adding their own unique flare.
This style isn’t just a cute hair trend, either. It can create a beautiful curl pattern without applying heat to your hair, too. So not only is this a great style, it’s functional, as well. Celebs can’t get enough of this multifaceted style and nor can we! Here are a few of our favorite Bantu Knot looks.
