Marley Twist and Protective Hairstyles

Marley Twist install at Bladez Barber Salon


Women of color love twists hairstyles. Twists protect hair and with the right care, they can last about eight weeks. One of the best things about this hairstyle is that it makes your hair look thicker, plus you will look and feel like a beauty queen. Let’s talk more about the fabulous Marley twists.

The Marley twists, also known as Kinky twists, are two-strand twists that use Marley braid extensions. They were named after Bob Marley. At first, they were created to look like dreadlocks but as they evolved, now they look more than twists than dreadlocks. They are coarse and look natural.

These extensions can be found in different colors. And you can buy them at any beauty store so you can get your twists put in the same day. One of the greatest benefits of using Marley twists is that you can tie your hair on a high ponytail or a bun as they are not placed on your scalp.

There are two sizes jumbo or thin.

Marley Twists Tips

If this is your first time using Marley twists consider the following to have better results: For thinner twists is better to only used two strands. This will make your twists smoother. For thicker twists, you should use more than two strands. If you want a more fullness look you can tease the strands in advance.

For thinner hair, you will need more strands. Approximately 6 to 8 bags for about seven dollars each.

  • You should know that Marley twists are not as practical and versatile.

Marley Twist is a protective style that looks kind of permanent. If you ever wanted to see how it would feel to have dreads, Marley twists are the way to go.

Overall I love the style! Your hair will be really shiny depending on the brand you choose and it gives you a really nice sex appeal. Get ready for men to look you up and down like candy and call you "Imperess" because I promise you they will do it! This style is work but if you can get through it, it will be so worth it! Depending on the color that you get away with you can have it look really natural and it can pass for your real hair.

Also styling will be awesome! It will take you less than 5 minutes to style your hair. Just gel your edges and free hand something in your mind. This style is also very low maintenance. Other than making sure you keep your roots, my hair likes to act up and i don't have time for that so my hair will be in a protective style. Also styling will be awesome!
