How to Create a Butterfly Tieback | Beautiful and Cute Hairstyles for Girls

PREORDER BrooklynAndBailey’s Single “WHAT WE’RE MADE OF” ▶

This week’s hairstyle tutorial is perfect for summer, and it is a super cute way of changing up your typical tieback. The inspiration is a butterfly, for those who love butterflies, and a version of which was something I had see by a fellow IG hair braider, HairDesignsByK.

Rylan volunteered to by my hair model today, and I added in the ribbon just for her… but for myself or for the twins, I would leave the hair as is.

You have seen this topsy tail technique before, from our Valentine’s Day heart hairstyles. If you are good with your fingers with braiding, you can easily pull the hair through on your own. Using a mirror, this can also be an easy DIY hairstyle.

To see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our app, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHButterflyTieback
