The butterfly haircut is all about the blend of short layers on top and long layers on the rest of the hair which brings flowy movement and volume to your mane! It has a lot of layers to give away a feathery look, and once you tie your hair up in a ponytail, the shorter layers will make you look like you actually have short hair.

What makes this hairstyle so popular is that it brings texture to your strands, not making them look flat and shapeless. After all, your hair is your crowning glory– so why not make the most out of it and play around with the flattering (or fluttering) butterfly hair?

Can you get a Butterfly Haircut?

Yes, you definitely can! This cut can be tailored to any hair type. Butterfly hair is the perfect look for those who want short hair, but can’t fully commit to chopping off their long locks! Even better, if you have natural wavy or curly hair that goes past your shoulder, then this haircut would complement your natural hair pattern and length, making it quicker and easier to maintain and style your hair.

Most, if not all, hairstylists are aware of the butterfly haircut thanks to its popularity amongst Gen Z and Millennials. All you have to do is ask your trusted hairstylist to give you a butterfly haircut or, in other words, cut your hair in layers where it is short on top and longer at the bottom. Take note– the shorter the layers, the better. This creates more natural bounce and texture to your strands, making them look full and fresh! It also means that it can last up to 10 weeks before you’ll need to freshen up your cut.
