Soft and curly twist out

When it comes to your final twist-out look, a lot of it has to do with the technique you used on the twists themselves. Twisting small sections of your hair will give you lovely tight and curly ringlets as shown here.

Soft and wavy twist out

For the wavier twist-out curls shown here, do twists on larger sections of your hair. Twisting on dry, instead of wet or damp hair, could give you similar results, as well.

Twist out with minimum separation

twist out @xpressionsofyou

It’s totally up to you how much separation and fluffing you do on your curls once you undo your twists.

As you can see from this pic, minimum separation helps you to keep the definition of the individual strands of a two-strand twist-out style.

Separated and still defined twist out

twist out @baelikejasmine

Separating your twists may take a bit of practice but you can do it! Just go slowly at first until you get the hang of it.

Fully separated twist out

twist out @jadaadriel

Full separation of your twist is another twist-out style option to consider. It gives more volume without having each strand of your two-strand twists being too defined.

Light pink twist out

twist out @aphairdiary

We just love it when gorgeous pink hair just don’t care! The shades in this style are giving off more than twist-out inspo – I can feel a bodacious dye job coming on!

Blue twist out

When you’re REAL serious about Stylin’ and Profilin’, this is one natural hairstyle and color combination you have to try!

Shades of blonde twist out

To get different types of twist-out curls in different sections of your hair try:

  • Doing small twists in some sections and larger twists in others.
  • Separating sections to different degrees.
  • Flat twists in some sections of your hair.

Twist out on a sew-in

twist out @hallehair.nunailsbynell

Protective styles are an important part of a good natural hair care routine. Twists and sew-in weaves are just two options.

Protective styles keep your hair safe from over-manipulation and external stress factors. When done right, protective styles can help you grow longer, healthier hair.
