I think this is just a preference, no? Which way to twist? I have tried it both ways and, for me, it works better toward my face. There is a slight break in the back center of my head, then I twist each half toward my face. I think this works better for me because my arm seems to like the twisting toward my face motion better it seems like a more natural movement to me - so I get a cleaner twist, if that makes any sense.
