"NAH." — your hair.

A twist-out is a hairstyle that's created exactly like it sounds: By untwisting one's previously twisted hair to create a head full of defined luscious curls.

2. Like this twist-out that decided to act all brand new in front of company.

3. Or this twist-out, which has brought shame upon all its twist-out ancestors.
