Minnie Dlamini was recently criticised on social media after she described her Bantu knots hairstyle as "ghetto". The hairstyle is far from that and has been used by black women as a protective style for years. It recently gained popularity among celebrities as they have begun to embrace rocking natural hair.
Briefly.co.za takes a look at a few times celebs looked fierce with Bantu knots.
1. Beyoncé sports Bantu knots on her Already music video.
The music icon recently debuted her movie, Black Is King, which pays homage to black people and Africa. It only made sense for the starlet to rock Bantu knots in one of the music videos in the hit film. She looked gorgeous with a braided version of the popular style.
2. Boity Thulo looks gorgeous with the hairstyle
Our very own Boity Thulo has also rocked the fabulous hair-do. The media personality is known to try out different hairstyles but has recently gone for a more natural look with protective styles like cornrows and Bantu knots.
3. Natasha Thahane slays in natural knots
Actress Natasha Thahane also showed off her stunning beauty while wearing the protective hairstyle. She looked nothing short of amazing.
4. Ciara set the internet on fire with her hairstyle
When Ciara debuted her Bantu knots, social media users went berserk. Sis looked incredible and it was a refreshing change from her long weaves.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Boity Thulo decided to get her hair done and did it she did. Sis is already a naturally beautiful boss babe but this new do is just the crown she needed. Mzansi celebrities never fail to serve some serious hair goals. Be it all-natural, a wig or weave or even totally shaven off, they set the trends.
Briefly.co.za saw that Boity went out and got her hair done and it is honestly one of the best styles we have seen on her yet – who dat hottie with the new hair?!
Boity has been doing the most to regain her confidence by losing the few extra kilograms sis said she put on. Being naturally beautiful though, Boity hardly even has to try and she be droppin' jaws.
Taking to social media with some flaming snaps of her new hair, Boity had the people sweating. Ooooh, but those golden braids are exactly what a queen like Boity should be wearing on her head.
