2. IT’S DIY FRIENDLY.

No need to run to the salon. Marley Twists are incredibly easy to install! Save a special weekend date, grab your Netflix, and get to twisting. The best thing about installing these twists yourself is that they don’t have to be perfect. The more unique the twists, the more natural they appear. There are several Marley Twist tutorial videos out there. Check out our faves: here, here, and here.

1. THE STYLES ARE ENDLESS

Marley Twists are super flexible. While you may have to wait a few days (or even a week) before doing fabulous updos with tight and rigid box braids, Marley Twists give you the ultimate style freedom due to its softness. The twists are also a great choice for colorful looks.

**Mane Tip: If you want a fuller style that’s also carefree, try Havana Twists — the voluminous cousin of Marley Twists!
