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:

That is really pretty!

I don't have anywhere that much hair, but I do something similar to this with my hair sometimes. I call it a rope twist. You twist two strands in one direction, then wrap them around each other going the opposite direction.

Here are some more rope twists.

I think on their website they stated that they used braiding hair. It's funny because rope twists were my backup protective style in case I couldn't figure out how to get Havana twistslol

It's not "weave" (although I do realise that some use the term weave to refer to all extensions/fake hair). But the twists are done with added braiding hair (extensions) to give a fatter, fuller twist. Her hair is probably not as thick to make those twist look thick like that.

I saw your other thread, your hair could do this easy! You have gorgeous hair!

Oh, Haha! People actually look at my pics! Thanks! All of my twists end up on the fatter side , so I was confused at how... Normal hers looks in the pics. I call everything "weave" because I don't know any better. Seriously, I've never even touched a weave, and wouldn't know the difference! It's still a pretty style!

Yea, nothing wrong with using weave to refer to all fake hair. Lots of people do it. I just distinguish between wefted hair and bulk hair
