I know you may have wondered the difference between the two trending protective hairstyles– Spring twists and passion twists. And I believe this has a huge part to play on which style you are about to wear next. Just Guessing.
If that be the case, then that’s why am here. In today’s post, I am going to tell and as well show you the difference and similarities between the two.
So let’s get started,
What are Passion Twists?
Passion twists are one of the trending new styles of two-strands twists which are achieved with a wavy hair extension. I wouldn’t want to go into the full history of how passion twist came to be, But let me tell you how it all started. Passion twist was founded by Rogers (Miami Based hairstylist) when she wanted to create a style that looks like a bohemian Lisa vibe. The rest story is history.
What are Spring Twists?
As the name implies spring twist was named according to its gorgeous springy feature which is one of the reasons a lot of ladies go for it even men. It can be achieved with the use of a coily hair extension which gives it the springy and twisty pattern.

The Difference between Passion Twists and Spring Twist
Now that you know what they both are, I am very sure you are eager to know the differences as well. No need to keep you waiting.
No matter how much you try to manipulate the strands (in terms of length and density) passion twists will always be heavier when compared to spring twists. Forget the length of extension as the main cause, naturally, passion twists are not really that light in weight (I won’t use the word “heavy” again, I think it can scare you away lol)
The type of hair used for each style which is the major difference is the reason behind the price difference, but the short note you should have in mind about the price is that spring twist is less expensive and economical when compared to passion. You can even use spring twists hair extension twice( i.e after removal), but I doubt if you can do that with passion twists extension.
Appearance, Pattern Impression & Texture
None of them is bad at all, but to me, the most appealing style is the spring twists. The springy feature alone drives me crazy in love I don’t know about you. For the area of texture, Spring twist has a smooth and luscious texture while passion twist has a thick texture.
No doubt spring twists last longer than passion Twists. This is Tested and confirmed check my post on how long passion twists last vs how long spring twists last.
And one thing behind this is that passion tangles and unravel Very easily when I mean very easily it becomes messy and old so quickly.
Installation Method and Time: There are similarities between installing spring twists and other protective styles. But for the time spent aspect, as I said in my previous post the amount of time to be spent on installation, depends on the technique used, how fast and experienced you or your hairstylist is experienced with the style.
Some ladies do split and stretch spring twists strand before they start installing. Doing this (which in most cases is necessary) increases the time. That’s why I said it depends on how you install.
- Another similarity I shouldn’t tell you is that they are both beautiful. Lol. But the human choices and preference have a huge role to play on which one is more beautiful on every individual.
- They are both versatile, can be styled to any hairstyle you can imagine (But Bangs are NO for passion twists).
- Their care routines are quite similar, you just have to be creative with the way you handle them. That’s all.
