Jammin with my Marley Twists

This weekend I set out to do some protective styling. My style of choice? Marley Twists. I’ve been wanting to try them for a while but had to wait until the weather got cooler. Three hours and nine packs of Jamaican Twist Braid hair later, I had my Marley Twists. Yes, I said three hours. For some that may seem like a long time so sit still but when compared to other protective styles that is a short amount of time to be in the salon. For example, when I did box braids it took seven hours.


I used two colors for the install, the main color was 33B and I used P1B/530 for a  few highlight twists. I did not do this style myself, I went to the salon to get it done.  I trust myself to do a lot of things to my hair, but braiding and twisting are out of my  repertoire. I admire those who are able to do their own installs.

I finally got them done and I live this style!

When telling the stylist what I wanted, I indicated  that I wanted medium size twists. Letting your  stylist know details such as size and length that you desire is vital. Otherwise you will end up with  a result you probably were not expecting. With  twists as big as mine, they are definitely hard to  manipulate into those cute buns I see everyone  rocking. I’m not saying it is impossible, but I am saying it would take some work and probably be heavier than I’d like. I will try some different styles though.

I expect to keep these in until the week before Christmas. We will see if I get that far though. So far I love the style and as of now I would definitely do this style again. The question now is how easy will they be to remove. You know, I will share the entire Marley journey with you. Stay tuned!

You can learn more about Marley twists on YouTube of course!

    These look great! Where did you get the Marley hair from? I have a hard time finding it (I live in a smaller town in Ontario, Canada).

      Hi Jess, I got the hair from a local beauty supply store. However, you should be able to order it online. See if this site ships to Canada. http://www.hairtobeauty.com/Freetress-Equal-Synthetic-Braid-MARLEY-BRAID-p/ftequal_sb_kmb00.htm
