If you have natural hair, you’re likely aware of protective hairstyle options like box braids and crochet braids. These hairstyles make growing out your curly hair a little easier and they’re seriously stylish at the same time. The protective hairstyle we’re most obsessed with at the moment? Passion twists! One of the easiest protective hairstyles to install, with the right natural hair extensions you can easily get the look at home. Ready to switch up your ‘do? Below, we’re sharing a step-by-step tutorial on how to get a passion twist hairstyle, three different ways you can wear this trending look, and tips for taking care of passion twists.
Ready to style your mane? Follow the steps below to say hello to a head full of beautiful passion twists!
Starting at the nape of your neck, use a rat tail comb to create a section about two inches high. Clip the rest of your hair so that it's out of the way. Split that section into two smaller sections that are about two inches wide.
Take the section to the left and apply a dab of an edge control product or hair gel, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel, then comb through.
Take a piece of your passion twist hair and wrap it around the root of the section you just created to install it.
Once your extension is installed, split the section into two. Twist the strands around each other until you reach the ends of your hair.
Take the right-hand section you created in step one and repeat steps two through four.
This time, you’ll be repeating steps one through four! Create another similarly-sized section of hair, split it into two smaller sections, and twist. Repeat throughout the rest of your mane, adding extensions and twisting your hair until you have an amazing passion twist hairstyle.
Now that you know how to install passion twist hair, you may be wondering how you should wear your twisted tresses. If you need a little inspo, we’re naming three of our favorite ways to wear passion twists.
After taking the time to install and style your passion twists, you likely want to leave your locks long and proud so you can show them off. That being said, we get that having your hair in your face can get annoying at times—not to mention simply wearing your hair down gets boring after a while. The solution? A half-up bun! To get the look, create a section at the crown of your head from temple to temple. Then, twist your twists into a high bun at the top of your head. Secure with plenty of bobby pins to keep everything in place and you’re good to go!
Passion twists look particularly stunning with lots of volume on top. Since you can’t exactly tease your twists, consider creating a deep side part to give the illusion of extra voluminous roots!
Of course, when it comes to passion twist hairstyles, it doesn’t get more classic than a high bun. Your twists will give your updo some serious volume and texture, making for a style that’s fit for just about any occasion. Twirl your twists into a bun, secure with bobby pins, and you’re ready to head out the door!
So, what’s the deal when it comes to maintenance for a passion twist hairstyle? We have good news: a passion twist hairstyle requires very little upkeep! Still, you’ll want to keep the following three tips in mind.
Don’t fuss with your hair too much—let it be a little messy. Remember: Passion twists are supposed to look natural and relaxed!
How you sleep on your hair matters! Put your hair into a pineapple updo or wrap it with a silk scarf while you sleep to help prevent unwanted frizz from popping up.
Show your hair some love by keeping your strands hydrated. Try applying a bit of the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment, which hydrates and nourishes to transform dry, lifeless hair into soft and lustrous locks.
