Marley Twists: Protective Style *Video

 Watch Marley Twists: Protective Style Video

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?

    Hi Cass!

    I just recently put in my own Marley Twists based off your video, and so love them! My only problem with them is that the roots get loose, and so I keep having to redo them. Any advice on how to keep them tight?

      Hi Kristen! Why don’t you try braiding it at the root? That would help.

    I love this video! Thank you so much! I just started wearing braids and I love them. I’m going to definitely try these lovely twists. Do you have any tips on how to maintain them for 3 weeks to a month? How to keep the scalp moisturized and how to wash them, please? Also What is the best nighttime routine for them?

    to make the hair longer and thicker you will need four pieces. puff it out and place two in each had. twist the ends together and then continue as you would a regular marley braid. That is how I did mines

    I tried this style, I got the hair to attach fine but the twists were full of flyaways. Any tips to prevent that?

    You have to match the pieces that you apply to your hair uneven. You see at 2:45 how she makes sure they 2 pieces are even, don’t do that. But instead of using two pieces you would use 4 (so you can still get the thickness). This is how I made mine longer.
