by Kristiyana

As women, we’ve all had those moments when we’ve felt like just taking a pair of scissors and cutting out half of our hard-to-maintain long hair. I mean, girls with short hair just make it seem so easy, don’t they? Their hair seems so flowy, and easygoing, whereas If I don’t use the correct conditioner for one week the volume of my hair goes to zero. However, I fell like I am just not ready to take that life-changing decision of cutting my hair, so maybe I can just fake it and try out the butterfly haircut trend of 2022!

TikTokers have been going crazy about this trendy 70s hairstyle! The butterfly haircut trend of 2022 is coined by celebrity hairstylist Sunnie Brook. It is a hairstyle consisted of many flowy layers, and its longer ones fall just below the shoulder. The shorter layers of the hair are cut around the top of the head, making it so like you have short hair. Brook herself explains that the hair below the shoulders is cut in a way that the top layer can easily be separated with a pin from the bottom one to look like you have a shorter hairstyle. Perfect, am I right? This hairdo is already being rocked by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Steinfeld, HBO’s Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney and the Barbie queen Margot Robbie.

Butterfly Haircut 2022: Who should get it?

This glamorous hairstyle is ideal for those of us who to preserve the length of our hair, but also want to try out a short hair trend like the bob haircut. After you get the butterfly hairdo, just separate the top layer from the bottom one, and you will give the illusion of shorter hair! This hairstyle is also perfect if you seek something that is low-maintenance, and it makes your hair look healthy and puffy! Hairstylists have said that this look works best if you have curly, wavy or naturally dense hair, but anyone can really try it! However, if your hair is curly or wavy better to have the cut on dry hair, as curly and wavy hair tends to look shorter when it is wet. For those of you with finer hair, keep in mind that if you have the butterfly cut, it may look stringy.

Butterfly Haircut 2022: How to style it?

When the butterfly cut is done properly, it takes little to no products to style. However, if you want to enhance that 70s look, you can use a blow-dryer and round brush to give it more volume. Don’t be afraid of the brush! I am saying this as a person who has been using a wooden comb with wide prongs for most of my life! My hairdresser advised me of this when I was like 10 years old because my hair was too curly and brushing it just made it look worse! But this hairdo looks best when it’s flowy, that’s the idea, so if you are going to use a blow-dryer to style it you will need a brush! Also, use mousse to add shine and bounciness to your hair. For curlier hair, it can be best to use a curl-enhancing product. Before styling, add a heat-protection product.

If I didn’t have medium length hair I would absolutely try it out, but I first I think I am going to wait to grow out my hair. Or maybe I don’t really have to? Why should I wait? I bet I can pull this off with my medium hair as well!
