Top 4 protective style tutorials- from cornrows to braids (no need for additional hair)
What we love about this style is that it’s a two-in-one. The knots themselves create a beautiful look that lasts a while, and once you’re ready to untie them you have bouncy curls that you can gently comb out and style. This tutorial shows how to do bantu knots on short natural hair. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flm13UYvY_U
If you, like many of us, just haven’t gotten around to learning how to cornrow, this is your chance. It’s classic and lasts really long. It’s also versatile - thick, thin, and can lay in any direction you’d like. This step-by-step tutorial breaks it down in an easy to follow, non-intimidating way.
Two-braid flat twist
A quick style with big results. This will last as long as you’re willing to take care of it and will make you look put together and professional with minimal effort. This tutorial makes this style accessible.
This is an upgrade on the twist, and maybe a style that would take more than a day. The longevity is totally worth it, and you can play around with accessories.
Whether you’re feeling up for doing any of these or have just enjoyed watching the tutorials, remember that taking care of your hair is taking care of yourself.
