Joining the blunt-cut bob and the shaggy mullet, the layered “butterfly” hairstyle is quickly becoming one of the top haircuts in 2022. The popular hairstyle gives the illusion of a shorter hairstyle without actually compromising length. Seen on celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Rowland, Hailee Steinfeld and Sydney Sweeney, the haircut taps into the cool, ’70s vibes that will always be up for a re-do.

The butterfly haircut can be described as mixing two looks together. The style requires long hair that is cut into shorter layers on the side, so that it basically looks like the short side layers are melding into the longer layers in perfect sync. The look works best on hair that is bouncy and thick, though curly and wavy hair is also ideal. You can put the long back layer up in a ponytail, and let the short side layers fall where they may. Giving you the Farrah Fawcett lightweight bounce that was so common in the ’70s, the butterfly haircut creates a nostalgic, carefree look.
