While some are able to master the style right off the bat, it can take others a little longer to get there. But no matter your skill level, many of us have experienced a so-called "twist-out fail."

Bantu knots are a quick and easy way to create a structural updo with minimal effort — and you can even keep the same parts you used to create your twists to speed things up.
