Knotless Braids - Celebrity Inspiration Inspo

Knotless braids have easily become the breakout out hair trend of 2020. of the biggest hair trend that have been dominating 2020. This versatile hairstyle is similar to box braids, however knotless braids look like they’re growing out of the scalp while box braids are attached to the scalp with a small knot. Personally we have happily made the switch to knotless braids from the bulky braid knot because it doesn’t put any form of stress on your scalp and sooooo much quicker to install. 

To get a sense of how chic and flawless this hairstyle will be on you, here are 15 knotless braids styles worn by some of our favourite celebrities to inspire you;
