Definition: A hairstyle created by twisting two sections of hair around one another to the ends. Sections of hair may range from large to small. While flat twists work well on different textures, twists generally work better on natural hair as the ends usually hold together without additional help from bands or barrettes. Twists can be combined with other styles, such as flat twists, braids and afros.
Also Known As: two-strand twists
