10 Different Ways to Style Knotless Braids

August 23, 2022

As a babe that absolutely loves knotless braids, it tends to feel like a waste of beauty when I just keep my braids in one or two styles for the entire duration I have them because, laziness.

I did some research on cute ways to style knotless braids and believe me when I say your style game is about to be elevated.

High bun with a side sweep

This style works great for when you have long braids, but the heat isn’t smiling at all. It’s easy too; just pack your hair in a regular bun, but leave out some braids in the front so you can sweep them to the side to add to the bun.

Halfway double buns

For when you want to show everyone you took Beyoncé’s ALIEN SUPERSTAR to heart. For this style, part your braids into two horizontal halves, let the lower half flow free and then style the upper half into two buns.

Halfway double pigtails

If you think the halfway double bun is too dramatic, then you can just leave the buns as pigtails. Leave out one braid from each pigtail for a bonus look.
