Kinky Twists: 10 Perfectly Stylish Ways to Wear the Look

The twisty style we love.

One of our favorite protective hairstyles besides braids is kinky twists. We’re currently obsessed with kinky twists: Women tend to go for this look because of the beauty of the texture, and some gravitate towards this look as it complements their natural hair texture.

To create this look, you can use Marley braiding hair, and use the many different ways of styling it. If you’re looking for a style that has longevity, no need to worry about running out of styling options, as there are quite plenty to recreate!

If you’re thinking about getting a kinky twisted hairstyle this season, below we’ve rounded up our top favorite styles:
