When done correctly, the twist out, a natural hair technique, gives you the defined, luscious curls and volume you desire. On the other hand, a bad twist out is akin to a melted ice cream cone — it can result in a shapeless, frizzy look.

Read on for five tutorials to check out if you want to get schooled in the twist out.
