Origin

Kinky twists, along with other braiding styles, date back to Africa many centuries ago. The Kinky twist trends of today began in the early 2000s.

Description

Kinky twists have not been as popular in recent years as Marley and Havana twists, but they are still a great choice for African-American women. Kinky twists are a two-strand twist that generally falls at the shoulders with curled ends.

Other than the length of the twists, there are two other major differences between Kinky twists and Marley twists. The first difference is the installation process. When installing Kinky twists, the hair extensions are first braided for about an inch at the root before being twisted down to the ends. With Marley twists, the hair extensions are twisted from the root all the way down to the ends. The second difference between the two is the thickness of the twists. Though both styles utilize Marley hair, Kinky twists tend to have a much smaller thickness than Marley twists.

Kinky twists can be worn for up to 8 weeks. Because Kinky twists tend to be shorter, the style is usually worn down as opposed to being in a ponytail or bun.
