Here’s all you need to know about the really cute new trend, passion twists.
- This style is growing in popularity because it is protective, easy to install, affordable, and low-maintenance.
- Materials needed: 6-8 packs of hair, brush+edge control, rat tail comb; depending on the method used: latch-hook crochet needle, rubber bands
- Make sure the hair you get is the “water wave.” If not, the hair will end up looking more like a kinky twist after installation.
- The twists look great at any size.
- When you install, twist tight together; make sure both sides of the twists have equal amounts of hair.
- Make sure your hair is at its curliest state, and moisturized when you install. (Allows hair to blend with twist and dry for a natural look.)
- There are at least 4 installation methods
- ‘Traditional knot’ method – using this method, the twist is installed using the braided start with 3 strands, eventually combined to 2 strands, latching the twist via a knot
- ‘Crochet cornrow’ method – using a latch-hook crochet needle, the twist is installed via a loop, to several cornrows on the scalp. Recommended: 6-8 cornrows.
- ‘Crochet rubber band’ method – the hair is parted and each part of hair is sectioned off with a rubber band; using a latch-hook crochet needle, the twist is installed to the section of hair, via a loop, then tightened and twisted.
- ‘Crochet braided start’ method- the hair is parted and plaited; using a latch-hook crochet needle, the twist is installed to the section of hair, via a loop, then tightened and twisted.
