The butterfly cut has long been spotted on stars like Jennifer Lopez. Now he's also conquering street styles. Here you can find out how a butterfly haircut is cut and what you have to pay attention to when styling.
The butterfly cut has long been part of the signature look of actress and singer Jennifer Lopez. Now other stars and influencers are also daring to do the haircut.
The butterfly cut gets its name because the cut is reminiscent of butterfly wings. The hair is divided into upper and lower hair sections. The strands of the top section are then cut around the crown of the head and end just below the chin so that they adapt perfectly to the contours of the face.
The lower part of the hair is cut into long strands. In the foreground of the hairstyle, however, is the voluminous upper part of the hair, which is reminiscent of very large curtain bangs.
The popular haircut is particularly suitable for round faces because it encloses facial contours. It is important that the hair is at least slightly longer than your shoulders. However, how long your hair is after your shoulders is not important for the cut.
The special feature: With the butterfly haircut you can also try out whether you feel comfortable with shorter hair. Due to the voluminous upper section, you can simply tuck the lower section underneath.
Jennifer Aniston's butterfly haircut is also part of the ensemble in her role as Alex Levy in the AppleTV+ series The Morning Show.
It doesn't take much to style the haircut. Once you have the cut, the hair usually falls back into the butterfly cut after every hair wash.
For more volume, you can help with a round brush and a hairdryer. Mousse and hairspray can ensure that the hairstyle sits well.
