Passion twists are clearly a play on Senegalese twists. In fact, they are a marriage between Senegalese twists and goddess locs. A knot is created at the scalp using your natural hair and added extension hair.
Then the hair is twisted down in a special fashion, leaving the ends loose. This style lasts anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months. They cost from $50 to $200 or more depending on stylist speed and your desired twist size and length.
Kailyn Rogers Method
According to Rogers, who came up with the style, passion twists should be started the same way that traditional Senegalese (2-Strand) twists are. However, the key is in the tension used as the section is braided down. While twisting the hair down, the braider should periodically pull the 2 sections of the twist taut to create the rugged structure of the passion twist.
