Passion twists are quickly climbing the ladder as one of the most requested protective hairstyles at local braiding salons. The style is equal parts easy, breezy and glam, so it’s no wonder why it’s picked up traction on Instagram. Miami-based hairstylist Kailyn Rogers, known online as The Boho Babe, is responsible for the easy-to-maintain hairdo that’s totally Instagrammable (her YouTube tutorial on the look went viral). 


If you want to give passion twists a try, we recommend first using Carol’s Daughter Goddess Strength Hair Oil on your locks. It wraps strands with moisture to help protect hair from breakage and split ends that can often come with heavier styles (don’t forget your scalp!). It’s also always a good idea to start with some hairspiration since passion twists tend to take on a life of their own. Below, find six passion twist styles that you’ll want to recreate.

A ’90s Twist

’90s makeup and hair are having a moment right now and this style screams nostalgia.

Add a Headband

Push your twist out of your face to show off a fierce makeup look by simply sliding on a headband.

Regal Updo

If you get tired of wearing your passion twists loose, tie them up in a high bun with a strand or two hanging down for an effortless feel.

Side Pony

Let your earrings and hair both shine by throwing your twists up in a side pony.

Half-Up Half-Down with a Bun

Whether you like your twists picked up or hanging down, this style is the best of both worlds.

A Splash of Color

Really switch things up by adding a fun color into the mix. We love this burgundy dye job for the fall.
