Bantu Knot High Bun
- Using a stretched out hair elastic, pull curls up into a high ponytail.
- Secure curls with bobby pins to form bun.
- Leave a few curls down to frame your face.
- (Optional) Use your favorite gel, jam, or jelly hair product to smooth your edges.
The Messy 4-Braid Updo
- Split hair ear to ear then from front to back into 4 sections. (Optional: Leave a small section out to fame your face. I bantu knotted my bangs for a soft curl)
- Loosely braid each section. Pick apart and fluffy your braid creating an illusion of plumped fullness.
- Repeat until complete. Secure the section with a hair tie if necessary.
- Take one of the braids in the back and cross it over the back of your head. Secure with a bobby pin.
- Repeat until complete.
- Tuck in all of the loose ends.
Bantu Knot Side Tuck
- Create a side part then gather all of your hair to one side. Leave a few curls in the front.
- Secure with your banana clip. Finger fluff and separate curls for a fuller look.
- Tuck all of the ends up with hair pins.
- Pull your the loose curls in the front back, tuck, and secure with hair pins.
