Can I be real honest with you right now?
I know it’s in the blood of most naturals to be super hard core about the rules of being natural, but that’s not me AT ALL.
I can appreciate a beautiful press, a well done weave and some oh so fabulous braid/twist extensions (especially cuz they make for EXCELLENT protective styles).
With that said, I couldn’t help but try this sweet hairstyle using a lil faux hair help
Check out the video below to find out how I got these HOT down-to-my-waist marley/havanna twists.
This hairstyle took me a few hours to do, but they were so easy!
In this video I show you my technique (which I literally just came up with like last week!) to achieve a beautifully natural looking extensions.
I bought this hair at my local beauty supply store but you can also find it here.
How would you tweak this hairstyle to suit your tastes?

Hey ladies! This is Cass from cassandrebeccai.com where I teach you how to manage Afro-textured hair. Today, I’m going to show you how I got these Marley Twist things that I did this week, and as you can see, I think they’re really cute.
I’m just going to teach you how I got them this way.
I got hair. It’s basically called ‘New Malibu Kinky.’ It’s like a kinky hair. It’s like a Marley hair kind of thing. I got it at my local beauty supply store and I got it for $4.50 a pack, which is pretty cheap, right?
I think I only used two of these for my hair. I got them in the color too because I thought that best match my particular color.
What I did was I found that the bunch came in like little pieces of hair like this. What I like about this hair and whatnot is that it just resembles my Afro-textured hair.
To me, I think, that’s really cool. You can put the style together and it looks really cute and natural, but still has this glamorous really long hair kind of thing.
How to Do It
I grabbed two pieces at a time, and as you can see, I took out one of the twists, so I can show you how I got this.
You part your hair in sections, take the two pieces of hair, and you just start thickening them up by separating the fibers… I’m doing this because I want the twists to be pretty thick.
Your hair is probably thick already, but for the look, for this style, I want it to even be more thick. So, I decided that I will use two strands and simply pull them apart.
Once you’ve thickened them out, you just lay them to the side, and just work with your hair by making sure your hair is de-tangled. I’m not going to de-tangle it only because it’s already been de-tangled, and you can see the crinkles. My hair has been in this style for a little while. You want to de-tangle your hair, put some moisturizer on it, and then, use a little bit of your gel to smooth over all the little frizzies on your hair.
Right now, I’m just grabbing some gel. I’m just going to smooth it over my hair. Then, I’m going to grab the piece of hair and place it right in between the two parts I made here.
What you want to do is twist one side and twist the other. Once you got that going, just twist your hair along with the faux hair. I’m just going to take some more gel. Then, just twist to the very end.
There you have it. Thank you so much for watching. I’m so glad you did. Please like, subscribe, share with others.
You can definitely leave your comments down below, and I’ll get right back to you as soon as I can. I, again, used a Marley Kinky type hair. I chose a color that resembled mine, and I took my hair and twisted it around and there you have it.
Thank you so much for watching. Take care, bye!
