Box braids will always be the crown jewel of protective styles. But with new techniques being birth at light-speed, the black girl staple is quickly fading to the background. Now, new buzzier styles are taking the throne.
Last summer, knotless braids; a more modern iteration of classic box braids, took the spotlight. These braids offer less tension at the root. Then, passion twists entered the fray.
What Are Passion Twists?
When you think of passion twists, think senegalese twists, but with a touch of Lisa Bonet. In fact, these twists are installed the same way other two-strand twists are done. But for the uninitiated, you start off with washed, moisturized and stretched dry hair.
You can attempt this style on your natural texture as well. However, you may experience difficulty depending on how curly or kinky your own hair is.
For those not in-the-know. Passion twists are created by Miami based hairstylist Kailyn Rogers – Boho Babe on Instagram. The style meets at the intersection of senegalese twists, bohemian, or goddess locs. And the latter inspired Rogers to create the now trending passion twists.
As a result, thousands of how-to YouTube videos have been created. Women demonstrating style techniques in varying lengths and iterations. For example, crochet, knotless, and jumbo braids usage. Additionally, a multitude of hairstylists have now added the style to their services.
