About Nubian Knots

What began as a personal quest to revamp derogatory attitudes towards natural hair soon became a passion. The sixties were long gone and bone straight hair was in. Not to mention Florida had a way all it’s own. Somehow Tampa moved to a different rhythm quite out of step with the northern east coast states. If it wasn’t straight and flowing it wasn’t in. Soon all that changed on a hustling corner north of Hillsborough Avenue in  East Tampa.

Baby Locs was the name of the style that changed the game. Short neatly parted coils in perfect rows. It was the beginning of a trend. Everyone wanted them; wether for style or for culture. The face of that corner was forever changed, or rather the head. Within no time well groomed Locs were noticeable all around town. Natural hair was back!

Nubian Knots assisted the Tampa area in rejuvenating it’s love of black hair. 2 Strand Twists, Sisterlocks, Fishtails, Nubian Knots, Corn-Rolls and more all became all the rave. Nubian Knots provides well trained professional stylists confident and able to style African textured hair in a wide variety of styles without the use of chemicals.
