Did I CUT my HAIR!?!?! How I achieved this FAUX Tapered Look!

Absolutely NOTTTT! I won't be cutting my hair anytime in the future. I will, however, do a Bantu Knot Out. A Bantu knot out is the perfect way to achieve a short hair look with medium length tresses! I had about 14 Bantu Knots all over my head.

To do bantu knots, I sprayed my hair with water until it was slightly damp. I didn't saturate my hair too much with water because it would take my low porosity hair forever to dry ( To find out about your hair porosity, check out this post). Then I lightly applied these two products to the ends of my hair.

My homemade moisturizing cream and Naturally Athena Goddess Curl Creme

The next morning, I quickly took them down, separated a few curls, and fluffed my roots before dashing out the house. 

I love the short crop of this style!!! 

The shape of this style is FAB-U-LOUS!!!!

It definitely provides the illusion of a short cut! 

If you don't know how to do Bantu Knots, check out this Youtube tutorial by NaturallyGG. She makes it very simple to understand. 

This hairstyle was perfect for the look I had for the day! I feel like I got similar curls when I did my twist and curl. For information on my twist and curl, click here to read the post.

Until next time,

Be faith-filled, fearless, and fabulous,

  1. Looks awesome and so full. I prefer bantu knots as well but sometimes its just so much easier for me to do the twist and be done.

    1. Thank you Kahleel! I've always loved bantu knots, even when I was a transitioner!
