Passion twists are the latest of the natural hair twist styles that you've probably been noticing all over social media!
Similar to spring twists or kinky twists, this style uses crochet hair to create beautiful, long twists that can be styled many different ways!
Although they aren't as hardy as box braids or cornrows are, this has become one of my most popular summer hair styles!
This summer it's been all about passion twists and knotless box braids! These twists use water wave crochet hair to add length.
For this style you'll need:
As always, I began with shampooed, conditioned hair. If you plan on leaving braids in for any long length of time, it's beneficial to deep condition first as your hair will appreciate the extra moisture!
The first thing I like to do before I begin is to section the hair out into four different sections, parting from the top of the head to the nape of the neck. And then parting from one ear to the other and then clipping each section out of the way.
You'll want to comb the ends of the crochet hair out before adding it in. This will create fluffier twists and a more full hair style.
For both box braids and twist styles, parting the hair out into a brick lay pattern will make for beautifully laid twists.
To ensure a tight enough base, you'll want to braid about an inch of the crochet hair into the real hair, and then switch over to the two strand passion twists.
Be sure to coat the real hair with Murrays edge control to ensure a seamless blend.
A typical install, depending on how long the twists end up being, takes anywhere between two and four hours. This style, when properly maintained, should last anywhere between four and eight weeks. Just like cornrows and box braids, the smaller twists last longer than the larger ones do.
Most of my clients like to add a bit of a highlight to their hair. So I will use a base color of #1B or #2, and then a highlight of either #27 or #30.
This has quickly become one of my favorite natural hair styles to do. Although they don't last as long as box braids do, they're a beautiful, low maintenance style that will still give you several weeks of little to no manipulation.
