How to Style Passion Twists {I Totally Got this Style All Wrong}

During the quarantine when everyone was experimenting with doing their own hair, a lot of us were forced to learn how to trim, braid, cut, dye and process our own hair. We failed a lot. A lot a lot. Sometimes, we were successful. I installed crochet braids in my hair twice. The first time was a hot mess, but the second was not too bad and I did my daughter’s hair too!

The second time, I purchased Passion Twist crochet hair and assumed it would look like the many photos of women I’ve seen in that style in person and online. It kinda looked okay.

The second time, our state and neighboring cities and counties were open and stylists, nail salons and barbers started to be allowed to take clients. I went to my braider’s home where she was strictly abiding by the guidelines and being extra careful because she has children incuding an asthmatic child.  She installe the crochet passion twist in my hair but didn’t twist them. It looked all big and poofy and frankly, ridiculous to me. Eventualy, after a week of looking like Diana Ross’ long lost child, I realized I should return to YouTube for advice.

That’s when I discovered that I was supposed to twist the hair once installed!


By this time, it had been a week since I left my braider, who is not really a stylist but more of an installer, so I did it myself and this is how they turned out:

I even did a quick video about the dilemma that I’ll post here soon. Here is a snippet from this blog’s Insta feed.
