Default I need these Havana Twists!! *Pics included*

I came across a website afrigenix.com. It's a salon in New York, but I live in Georgia so there's no way I can get this style of twists done from them. They're called Havana Twists on their website, but does anyone know if they're also known by another name, or will a stylist know what I'm referring to when I say Havana Twists? This would be a great protective style for me while I'm chasing my 4-month old around the house since I barely have any time to do my hair.Here are the three pics of the style:

Those are really cute, but I'm not sure why they are called Havana twists...those look like regular chunkier twists to me. My twists look like that when I do like 30 twists instead of 50+.

Very pretty. To me, they look like thick, 3-strand twists. I would need extension hair to get more than like 4 twists that thick on my entire head.

At first I thought it was really her hair, until I looked on the website and they stated that they used braiding hair with this style. If any of you do find someone to do it let me know if they call these twists by another name and post pics of your hairstyle too!

I saw these the other day on an unrelated site and my jaw dropped! I LOVE them.

I'm looking for something new to do with my hair, so I might try these.

I've been eyeing these for over a year!

I'm afraid to get them though, really nervous about extensions/weave/whatever the correct term is.

Thanks CocoT

After I'm done experimenting with products, I'm going to put these in!!!!! Maybe for fall/winter PT--because it rains so dang much here, there is no point of having my hair out, it just shrinks up and tangles and I lose all texture I have created with braids or twists--I would be so happy if all it did was shrink, but the resulting tanlges and SSKs are horrific.

ETA: cool, they are reuseable! You can wash them and use oil
