Tips to Style the Enchanting Butterfly Haircut on Short Hair


Delve in and get to know some of the best tips for styling your short hair with a butterfly cut.

The Achieving It Part

Firstly, if you’re someone who doesn’t already have a butterfly cut on short hair, take a look at this part first.

You want to keep things all fluffy and, of course, airy. The key to working with shorter lengths is thinned-out ends for a butterfly haircut. The butterfly effect is achieved on shorter strands by simply thinning out the ends of the layers to assist in eliminating weight and letting your hair have that fullness in it. We’ll go with the ponytail method to achieve this haircut as smoothly as possible.

•    To start, section your wet hair down the middle and comb it straight back behind the ears. You'll end up with a front and a back section after carrying this out.
•    Smooth the front section of hair with the help of a comb, draw it to the center of your forehead, and tie it up. You are not interested in creating an inconsistent look by tugging the hair, so make sure the ponytail is tight to begin with.
•    Style the back portion into a high ponytail with the comb, bringing it near the line drawn before.
•    Cut out a couple of inches while holding the front ponytail tightly. Make sure to follow the ponytail's natural methods when doing so. By tossing your hair over, you may achieve the look of layers while keeping more length than you might expect.
•    After chopping off a few inches from the top, you should flick the rear ponytail somewhat forward and chop off the same amount of hair.
•    For shorter hair, I suggest cutting back over with thin shears around two inches from the ends to help achieve the butterfly cut, as the same layering techniques we see applied to long locks can end up looking more bulky and less light and seamless.

•    After wetting your hair, apply a spray or foam to it that will give it more volume.
•    To separate the hair roots from the scalp, you should first roughly dry the top portion of your head.
•    You can make large, carefree blowout waves that are away from your face by using a blow dryer and a rounded brush, or whatever you call a blowout brush attachment. This will require some experimentation.
•    As a final step, use a styling spray evenly across your entire head of hair for increased volume and a more put-together appearance.
