Now, let's dive into what makes the Butterfly Cut so captivating. It's also known as the thousand-layer and it’s very similar to the octopus haircut, this layered haircut it's the ultimate blend of shag and long layers. But what truly sets it apart are those two distinct sections: long layers that gracefully drape below your shoulders, creating the illusion of endless hair, and short layers that playfully dance about two to three inches below your chin, framing your face with a delightful dose of volume. It's like layering redefined, stepping away from the beachy, tousled waves that we've seen for ages (and that we also love, ofc).
