#Blackgirlmagic is real and the mesmerizing beauty we possess trickles down to our clothes and most certainly encompasses our hair. We see it daily on the street, on social media and on our favorite celebs.


Singer Teyana Taylor gave us life on Instagram recently with a selfie that gets her the Hottest Hairstyle of the Week award. The 25-year-old beauty rocked thick, two-toned Bantu knots with splashes of gray thrown in. She paired the hot hairstyle with a beautiful blue-and-burgundy dashiki and a pair of ripped leggings that totally made us swoon. 

She is definitely rocking our favorite look of the week and her hair is just another exciting touch to a classic black girl hairstyle that looks great on natural or relaxed hair. Edges laid to the gods, thick knots with gray braids weaved into her own black hair, and the gold bamboo earrings are reminiscent of the 90’s “around the way girl” look. This hairstyle is forever etched into our black girl stylebook. 

Her fans were also digging the look and left comments like “I LOVE the look flawlessly done,” and “I would love to slay your Bantu knots!!!!!!!”


Easy to create, this protective style is jazzed up with gray braiding hair and can last a week or even longer if you cover with satin or sleep on a satin pillowcase. 

Teyana got us all feeling good.
