New haircut trend: the Butterfly cut

volume, soft shapes and easy maintenance

One of the most popular hairdos you can try this year is the butterfly haircut, it is a perfect choice as this cut won’t give you a drastic change in your look.

This hairdo is inspired by the styles of the past, specifically the shag haircut from the ’70s and the ’90s blowout.

The butterfly haircut has lots of wispy, descending layers that are pulled away from the face instead of inward. This effect mimics a butterfly’s fluttering wings.

The haircut can also be considered a two-in-one look because the short layers give an illusion of a shorter style that frames the face. However, you still get to keep your long hair.

Whenever you need your hair to look short, you can just tie the back section and let the shorter layers in front loose.

Another goal of the butterfly haircut is to remove weight from your tresses. You’ll notice the change most when you put your hair up. The ponytail will feel so much lighter!

Which Hair Types and Lengths Can Try the Butterfly Cut?

We know how getting a haircut can be terrifying at times. You may not want to let go of your long hair because it’s hard to grow it back out.

The butterfly cut is the best way to experiment with short hair without actually chopping most of your hair.

But long, thick, and wavy hair can also benefit from this cut. The longer the hair, the better the haircut would look. That’s because the length allows more space between the short and long layers.

If you have natural waves, you won’t need much effort in styling this hairdo because the strands will flow and move on their own.

The butterfly hairstyle is also good for those with coarse but flat and lifeless hair, as the layers will give the shape and movement that your locks need.

However, this haircut isn’t for everyone.

It’s not recommended for fine hair because the cut will only make the locks look thinner. As for face shapes, the butterfly cut will flatter round faces the most but will make rectangular faces longer.
