Knotless braids come in various colors, lengths, and sizes, just like the curls attached to them. Here, we have a different variety of curls – loose curls. Though these knotless braids have good volume, they would have been pretty ordinary, but around waist length, they blossom into loose fairy-like curls. Black is very minimalist, so you could recreate this in another color to make it pop even more. However, if you’re proudly simple, rock your black braids with your head high.

Our favorite thing here is the styling. This look shows many ways to wear your knotless braids with curls. First, the left side of the classic side part is styled in a high ponytail, while the right is left down. Following the ponytail, medium-sized braids transform into tight curls around the middle of the back. Moreover, the braids will frame your face nicely with this look.

6. Knotless Box Braids with Curls

Box braids don’t have to be lengthy to look good. If you’re looking for a more convenient length, this is for you.

It is full and thick while remaining at a comfortable length. Irrespective of the color you make these braids in, you’ll be getting approving stares from everyone.,

7. Medium Brown Knotless Braids With Curls

We love a good mix of colors. Black and brown create a generally more exciting hairstyle than only black hair. Evenly aligned sections and smooth braiding makes your braids look better, so make sure your stylist gets that right. Increasing the uniqueness of this hairstyle are the curls attached to the braids at their roots. End curls are great, but this is another unique way to incorporate curls in your braids. 

8. Colored Knotless Box Braids With Curls

Nothing beats a stunning center part. Here, we have thin knotless braids that frame each side of the face, falling down each side of the center part and ending in tight curls. This number is a classically versatile style suitable for anyone and any occasion. You could leave it down for a casual look or put it in a high ponytail on a hot day. Brown suits every skin tone, but it can be recreated in any other color or length (if you prefer shorter hair). 

9. Cross Green Knotless Braids With Curls

When was the last time you let loose in a club? Here, you have the perfect club-girl hairdo. Of course, flashing neon green will get every head turning to look at you. But, for most people, a head full of vivid green can be overpowering, so pairing it with black makes it easy on the eyes. 

If you have an angle you’d prefer to show off on your face, choosing a style worn to one side like this is the most fashionable way. Thin braids burst into black or green vine-like curls down the shoulder. Show off the sides of your face you prefer, whether right or left.

10. Goddess Knotless Braids With Colored Curls

Image by @afrosis_ via Instagram

It’s almost magical how much difference you can make by using varying shades of the same color. Our primary color is dark red, but using a nearly black shade for the thin braids and a lighter shade for the bouncy curls at the ends adds definition and depth that wouldn’t be there with a single shade.

Numerous extensions come with this color progression already made, so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself. Waist-length hair is decidedly feminine, but you could shorten yours for more comfort. 

11. Kids Medium Mid-Back Knotless Braids With Curls

Image by @slay_the_a_way via Instagram

Children aren’t left out! Young or old, there’s a curly knotless braids style for everyone to slay. Kids can get fussy when sitting too long, so this style has moderately large sections and medium-sized rather than thin braids. This way, they’ll be done quickly. 

Around the shoulders, we have loose curls twirl lightly at the end of each braid. Black or brown are the most appropriate colors for kids to avoid overwhelming them. Keep things short and simple so they have the freedom to jump around while looking good.

If you loved the last hairstyle, don’t worry, there’s a version of it for grownups. Here, we have the same style in a lighter shade of black. Firstly, if you like natural looks, you should try this in the exact color (for dark-haired folks). In this shade, the braids look like your own hair. 

We have more extensive, more aligned box sections for a sexier look and thinner braids for volume. This style is slightly longer at mid-back, and the loose curls take up more length. It’s the most suitable look for minimalists and would look chic on everyone.

No rule says jumbo braids have to be extremely long. Here we see jumbo knotless braids with end curls that stop at mid-back. Side parts are always more unique than regular center parts, but if you like, you can interchange your parts every day with knotless braids. We’ve already established that dark brown is a universally attractive color, though gold or red would be bomb with this hairstyle. As long as you love it, you’re good to go.

Somebody say bohemian chic! If you’re into the boho goddess vibe, you’re in luck. We have dark brown and gold extra thin knotless braids at waist length with loose curls that drape over each braid. Because they are attached to the tops of every braid, this style is incredibly voluminous.

It exudes femininity; you’ll look like a spring goddess paired with a slinky chiffon dress. Of course, any accessory would match these braids, but be careful not to ruin the curls when using them.

We’ve seen golden-colored hair previously, but if that gold didn’t stimulate your senses, or maybe you liked it; however, you’re the shy type, and it’s a little too much, check this out. This color is a more muted regal gold that will make you the star of any show you attend. 

We have box braids in thin sizes and tiny sections for extra fullness. The curls are shorter and stop around mid-back, but you could make your braid longer or curl more lengthy if you want longer hair. For flexibility, style in creative ways.

This style is made for accessories. From clips and pins to colorful rubber bands, any accessory would work here.

19. Beautiful Long Knotless Braids With Curls

Image by @braideddddd via Instagram

These braids are nothing short of beautiful. The symmetrical alignment we see here is an art form. Medium-sized box sections and medium-sized braids keep things firmly in the middle, not too small, but not too big either. 

Here, the works of art are the curls dancing between waist and butt length. Most curls are tangled and roped together, but here, the water curls drape down on their own individually, so there’s no risk of tangling. Recreate this in any color of your choice. Just keep your curls tangle-free.

20. Medium Knotless Braids With Curls

And yet another way to style end curls! Medium-sized knotless braids are accentuated with bold curls at the end of each braid. As we saw previously, each curl cascades down the back on its own without tangling. We have medium-sized box sections resulting in a slightly fuller look. This style has no stress, is minimalist, and is suitable for everyone irrespective of age or occasion.

21. Bohemian Knotless Braids With Curls

Image by @poise_beautysalon via Instagram

We saw this exact color progression previously, but this is another way to apply the color. Again, there are thicker braids here and medium-sized sections, and at mid-back length, this is slightly shorter than the last. 

However, the main difference is in the curling style. These curls have a more messy, relaxed vibe than the elegant ones we saw before. The kind of curls you use depends solely on what you prefer. If this red doesn’t do it for you, go for an ombre or burnt gold.

22. Colored Knotless Braids With Curls

What would we do in a world without colors? Colors have a wonderful way of adding life to anything, including hair. These braids would have been too severe for most, but brown saved the day with only two colored strands. Featuring ultra-thin braids in tiny sections parted in the center, the braids in this style cascade down the back and bloom into stately loose curls between upper and mid-back length. This style frames the face nicely and takes any outfit a thousand notches up.

We have plain box braids that transcend into something otherworldly with just end curls. Medium-sized braids travel from small sections of hair, hit the upper back, and burst into a shower of loose, draping curls.

It’s the most versatile style of knotless braids with curls. You could wear your hair in a high ponytail, half-up, half-down style, a bun with a couple of strands framing your face, or leave it to twirl effortlessly behind you.

Do you love super long hair? We present another variety of knotless braids with curls for you. The flexibility of these braids is already shown off with the high ponytail style. Small, widely spaced sections and thin braids guarantee full hair.

As for the curls, we have two attractions: curls at the tops of the braids framing the face and end curls at the bottom of all the braids. Black will never stop being beautiful, though any color you like will fit nicely.

25. Large Knotless Triangle Braids With Curls

Triangular sections are hot on the market right now. We have large braids in equal, large triangular areas for this number. Tight spring curls adorn the base of each braid, extending the length from upper back to mid-back.

A mix of colors in your hair always brings a fun, new dimension that far outshines using a single color, especially when the two colors are complementary. Avoid colors that clash with each other unless that’s the aesthetic you want.

26. Cute and Small Knotless Braids With Curls

Tiny, tight curls are a favorite look for a lot of us. They’re an easy way to romanticize your hair, and they look great. Here, little curls dance at the very end of each braid in a slight golden ombre hue. In addition, small box sections and thin braids in dark extensions lend a more natural look. 

Long hair is undoubtedly feminine, and at waist length, this style exudes sweet girlishness. In addition, this hairstyle presents another color progression, so if you don’t like the ones we’ve shown before, try this.

27. Beautiful Knotless Braids With Curls

We love trendsetters. Regular braids are a classic, but they’re also mainstream. If you like edginess and want something different? You can’t go wrong with this. These braids incorporate everything from knotless braids to cornrows at the top to a crown braid at the left side of a side part. 

The asymmetrical end curls, which converge at a point in the middle, add more detail here. This style is for our creative queens; you’ll either love it or hate it, but it’s an attention grabber.

Accessorizing is so much fun! Gold cuffs take black braids to something that looks straight out of the memorable Queen Cleopatra of Egypt’s handbook. Curls define knotless braids, and this here is no exception. We have thin braids and small sections, and the curls increase the volume the thin braids lend to this hairstyle. 

This number is fun, feminine, and glamorous. You could rock it to a hangout with friends or a fancy dinner party with your expensive designer outfit.

This number is drop-dead gorgeous and perfect for anyone in any season. It features thin braids and small sections of hair. Moreover, the top loose curls flirting gracefully around each braid are stunning. Coffee brown best suits this style for a natural look, but go all out if you fancy a brighter color.

Each braid has its curl, so this fit is gloriously full. Waist-length hair is both sexy and feminine, and as seen above, you can style it in any direction you like. Imagine these braids in the summer breeze! With accessories, they would be to die for, but if that’ll be too much for you, then skip them.

30. Platinum Knotless Braids With Curls

Colors to make you stand out? Platinum will do the job. It’s bold and loud but fashionable. There’s a similarity to the previous style, except that the curls are much messier. There’s a more relaxed feel to this look, so if you don’t want to be too “queenly,” you can try this incredible number. 

You can also see another way to style your braids for the day. Though this is our last look, it’s definitely the most unforgettable. Be careful with your curls, though, so you don’t rough them up!

What are Knotless Braids with Curls?

If you’re a new member of the braid gang and you don’t know what knotless braids are, it’s not a problem. You know braids always begin with that large knot at the top where your extensions are fixed to your hair, right? That obnoxious knot doesn’t exist in knotless braids, so your braids look like a natural part of your hair. 

Now, how do you make knotless braids with curls? It simply means adding curls to your knotless braids. There are many ways to add curls to your braids; read on.

How Long Do Knotless Braids with Curls Last? 

Knotless braids on their own can last up to three months (provided you’re maintaining and touching up your braids regularly). They’re a superb protective hairstyle because of the absence of those knots that tend to pull at your scalp too hard, and they also protect your natural hair ends, so you can wear them for as long as you want.

Make sure to visit your stylist after three or four weeks for a retouch and take care of your scalp and exposed hair. Also, though this style is loved for its flexibility and ease of styling, be gentle when fixing your braids daily. Pulling always causes damage.

Do I Need Many Extension Packs?

It depends on the look you want your hair to take. Knotless braids look amazingly scanty, or voluminous; there’s no need to bother about looks.

Voluminous or long hair will probably cost you multiple packs of extensions, while shorter, thicker braids tend to need less, so if you’re worried about money, you could reduce your length or increase the size of your sections. Check out the pictures below for inspiration.

How do I Curl Knotless Braids?

It’s more straightforward than you think—hot water. Choose the part of your braid you want to curl, use your preferred curling tool, wrap that piece of hair around the tool and soak in hot water. After some seconds, unwrap the hair. You’ll have a bouncy curl.

Curls have several shapes and sizes. Depending on the form you want your curls to take, pick a tool that will give you your desired shape. For example, you could use rollers or thread, and you could braid that piece of hair and unravel the braid afterward- your options are endless.
