Twists— whether mini, 2-strand, or flat— are some of the most popular wig hairstyles for black women in the US. These hairdos are typically achieved by dividing the wig into various sections. The hair strands are then twisted.
A variation of hair twists called “twist out” hairstyle is where the hair that has been twisted is untwisted in order to create a texture that is big and loosely crimped. Twist out also comes with multiple varieties. The three-strand twist out, for instance, is done with the use of 3 strands of hair which gives a textured hairdo when untwisted.
Some of the most popular twists include Senegalese twists, flat twist, two-strand twists, Marley twists, and Havana twists. Depending on your hair length, some of these may require particular types of hair extensions.
