A braiding style that dates back to almost 3000 years ago, when an ancient civilization in parts of Africa used to wear Jumbo braids as part of societal expectations and traditions. While we do not adhere to those societal expectations anymore, we do find ourselves happily following and carrying on the practice of the jumbo braids.
However, as much as we love faux braids and the wonder it does, the entire process can be quite time-consuming and the aftermath could be painful. We say painful because with knots to hold the installed hair in place, our head can feel heavy and weighed down. Not to forget that sleeping with that hair is awfully uncomfortable.
As a solution to this dilemma, the braiding community has come up with the wonderful idea of knotless braids. And the jumbo knotless braids are absolutely magical because no knots, flatter yet fuller braids, and can be weaved in no time. It is everything good in the braiding world wrapped in one package. To find out more, stick with us till the very end of this piece and stock up on your knowledge about jumbo knotless braids.

What Are Jumbo Knotless Braids?
Before we go any further into our discussion, let us briefly describe what exactly are jumbo knotless braids that we are raving about. A variation of jumbo braids, which is a braiding style consisting of six to twelve thick braids, the knotless braids are the same apart from the fact the feed-in hair will be added to your natural hair as extensions.
This means the faux hair will not be required to tie into knots to stick around, rather will be added and directly braided with the natural hair. This will help to prevent extra weight on the head and unwanted pressure on the scalp.
Our Favourite Top 20 Jumbo Knotless Braids Hairstyles
After much consideration and research, we have managed to create a foolproof list of jumbo knotless braids that will suit you no matter your facial structure or shape. These hairstyles, given below, are incredible and impeccable – when done right, of course. We love every single one of them, and we are confident you will too.
Jumbo Knotless Box Braids
Box braids are a type of braiding style that will never go out of trend. It is a classic we always find our way back to. Thus, when knotless jumbo box braids came to life, we box braids lovers were ecstatic, to say the least. We could get our favourite hairstyle now without the trouble of having knots that made us feel uncomfortable due to the added weight on our heads. Also, as the braids are jumbo, the braiding period is much shorter.
Jumbo Knotless Box Braids with Beads
Now that you know you can get yourself jumbo knotless box braids, you might want to jazz it up. How can you do so? It’s an easy solution. We will once again go to our favourite classic hair ornament – beads. You could never ever go wrong with beads in your braids.
Jumbo Knotless Box Braids with Curly Ends
If for whatever reason, you do not want only braids, we have another solution. Once you’ve got yourself a head full of gorgeous knotless jumbo box braids, leave the ends of each braid as it is. You can then use perm rods to curl the ends, this will give your braids more character. This hairstyle will look somewhat similar to Coi Leray braids.
Jumbo Knotless Goddess Box Braids
However, if you want more volume and more personality to your hair, you must give our all-time favourite the jumbo knotless goddess box braids a go. This style will allow you to have braids and stunning locks of curls. The combination of both will make your head look full with different hair textures, giving it more personality.
Medium Jumbo Knotless Box Braids
Of course, jumbo knotless box braids come in every length. Nonetheless, we prefer the medium length the most as it makes the style look whole and sophisticated. The boxes seem more prominent in correlation to the length of the braids.
Jumbo Knotless Braids with Beads
We have already briefed about getting jumbo knotless box braids with beads. However, if you are not opting for box braids but want a simple jumbo knotless braid, you can get that with beads too. Your braids will look spectacular as ever once adorned with some beads, we promise.
Baddie Jumbo Knotless Braids
If you want something more in the daring side of the style, you could try the baddie jumbo style. The braids simply need to be thicker, with only about six braids in total. This is not for everyone as you need to know how to pull it off, so beware.
Jumbo Knotless Braids with Curly Ends
Let’s say you got basic jumbo knotless braids but now you want to jazz up your braids. What can you do? You can curl them, at least that’s what we would do. Whenever in doubt of the ends of your braids, and you don’t want to use ornament, you may simply get curly ends as they always make you look dolled-up.
Jumbo Knotless Braids with Curls
You could say this style is the love-child of the goddess braids and the braids with curly ends. You will basically weave in feed-in loose curls with the braids and let them down loose. However, the volume will not be as thick as the goddess style.
Short Jumbo Knotless Braids
It is natural to have different hair length preferences. That’s the best part of having feed-in hair, you can get it in whatever length you currently desire. For instance, if you are into short hair, why not get short jumbo braids for a while? They will look chic and cute.
Long Jumbo Knotless Braids
Do you prefer long hair over short hair? Do not fret, as the braids are iconic in long hair. They are quite popular for long hair as they look very traditional and feminine, as a tribute to our foremothers.
Medium Jumbo Knotless Braids
These knotless braids are most popular in medium-length hair with curls or beads adorning the ends. Wearing your hair in these braids at this length will make you look glam enough to be ready to go anywhere at any time.
Jumbo Knotless Passion Braids
Do you want curls and braids but not separately? How do you get a fusion of the two? The answer is passion braids. The jumbo knotless passion braids are the dream hair of anyone who has ever wanted thick pressed ringlets that almost look like braids.
Big Jumbo Knotless Braids
As we already know jumbo braids are quite thick, however, some people might want to opt for braids that are much more prominent. Perhaps, with only half a dozen braids in their head, you can check out the big jumbo knotless braids. They are bold and quite conspicuous.
Jumbo Knotless Braids with Colour
Colored hair is the best thing that happened to the faux hair industry, in our opinion. Who doesn’t love the flexibility and option of having hair in every possible colour out there? Not only does this allow us to explore our artistic side but also gives us the room to be and express ourselves in our truest form. Given below are some of our current much-loved colored jumbo knotless braids.

Jumbo Knotless Goddess Braids
We have already emphasised above how much we love goddess braids. For those of you, who do not like medium box braids, you can still get jumbo knotless goddess braids. The style will look equally stunning if not more so.
Jumbo Triangle Knotless Braids
The exact opposite of box braids is the triangle braids, which can also be done in the knotless method. The triangle braids give more dimension to your hair, and the overall visual is aesthetically pleasing.
Jumbo Bohemian Knotless Braids
Bohemian hairstyles always make us feel as though we are challenging the conventions and embracing the life of a free spirit. This bohemian hairdo will not make you feel any different. You will have the braids with a dash of curls, and the right kind of jewellery. The style is perfect to the T.
Jumbo Butterfly Knotless Braids
Butterflies are all about freedom and stepping out of their comfort zone. Once you have tried out this butterfly knotless braids style, that’s exactly how you will feel. It is a style that is not quite popular but holds immense power and character for those who are bold enough to try it.
Jhene Aiko Jumbo Knotless Braids
Do you know who Jhene Aiko is? If yes, you must have seen her with her gorgeous goddess box braids that she put her own style in. The hairstyle, thus, acquired the name the Jhene Aiko jumbo knotless braids. It is only fair, in our opinion, because she owned the look.
How to Do Jumbo Knotless Braids?
Jumbo knotless braids like any other protective hairstyle can be acquired in a few simple steps with the help of some basic products. We will not delay, rather jump right into the steps.
- Brush and stretch your hair out to get rid of any tangles.
- Use a rat-tail comb to divide your hair into sections. Start at the bottom-most sections, i.e., the back of your head. Select the corner part and divide it into a box or triangle or whatever design pattern you are following, but remember it must be big as this is a jumbo style.
- Use edge control or other conditioning gel to control and manage the hair.
- Start braiding your natural hair, and add extensions as you go along. Don’t forget to add a lot of hair as the braid needs to be thick.
- Once you are satisfied, move on to the next one. Repeat the technique for the rest of the hair.
- When you are done braiding, apply hair mousse all over the top of your head and braids to moisturise them. You can also tie the top part of your head with a silk scarf for a while.
- Use scalp oil to moisturise your scalp and keep them healthy.
- If you want curls at the end, use perm rods to wrap the ends around and dip them into hot water to set the curls in. You can then remove the rods, and you’ll have your perfect curly ends.
- These are the basic steps of how to get knotless braids but you can improvise and alter depending on the style you pick.
