Every woman who has had long hair knows the problem: at some point, you want to try a new hairstyle, but you just don't dare to cut your hair short. A pixie hairstyle looks great, but what if short hair just doesn't suit me? Then it would just take forever for the hair to grow long again. The butterfly haircut offers an alternative: the layered haircut combines the cool undone look of the short hairstyle with the elegance of long hair. This results in a versatile changeable haircut.
Short at the top, long at the back - the butterfly haircut is basically a step cut for women with medium-length and long hair. Long bangs are styled at the front, reaching to the chin and framing the face. The hair is also cut in stages at the back of the head.
The cut has a decisive advantage: the mane is visually filled out and the hairstyle looks voluminous.
The butterfly haircut suits women with oval, square and heart-shaped faces. The levels should be adjusted to the thickness of the hair when cutting. Women with thin hair look best on slightly overlapping steps. On the other hand, if you have thick hair, you can opt for divided steps.
Since the hairstyle itself is a bit more specific, the question arises: what hair colors go well with it? A Midlight - strand technique will compliment the trend hairstyle. A warm shade such as chocolate or honey blonde is taken as the basis and combined with lighter highlights.
The combination of different lengths offers numerous styling options. You can tie your hair back and in front, it will appear as if you actually have short hair. You can create a similar illusion with an updo.
The structured hairstyle is undemanding and you can keep your hair in shape in everyday life without much effort. Since it works best with curly and wavy hair, women with straight hair can use a curling iron to help. You can also style the hairstyle with a hairdryer.
During the fashion weeks in Paris and Milan, it became clear: the new trend hairstyle is called "butterfly haircut". After the renowned fashion houses set the tone, true Hollywood fashionistas dared to cut their hair.
The young actress Hailee Steinfield now wears her hair short at the top and long at the bottom. If you love experimenting with your hair without sacrificing your long mane, then this style is for you. As far as the color is concerned, go for warm chocolate nuances.
