This year hair trends dipped back all the way into the decade that was the nineties. Bantu Knots reemerged as a stylish and high fashion hairstyle that was even spotted coming down a Marc Jacobs catwalk. Nevertheless, time seems to be the killer of most hair fads that find their way into the spotlight. For example, what happened to twisties that were worn at the crown or mini ponytails with most hair hanging down straight (google Aaliyah.)
Since cool hair seems to come and go it is quite the feat when one hairstyle seems to stand the test of time. When it comes to Bantu Knots numerous celebrities have worn this modern hairstyle and we would like to briefly pay homage. Here are 8 black celebrities who all prove why Bantu Knots are still the bomb.
Mel B. aka formerly Scary Spice
Jada Pinkett Smith
The late Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes
Bonus: When Solange Knowles took over as the Art Director for sneaker brand Puma this was the ad campaign designed for the Wild Wonder Puma Collection. Notice anything?
