Butterfly Locs Are The Protective Style Taking Over Our Timelines

Meet the hair manifestation of carefree summer.

Hair

If you're looking for the hairstyle of the summer, look no further than coveted butterfly locs that are saturating our timelines. The ultimate boho classic look and sister to distressed locs, butterfly locs are the hair manifestation of carefree summer we're all looking forward to. While faux locs have been trending for some time, there's something about butterfly locs that effortlessly attracts everyone.


What Are Butterfly Locs?

Butterfly locs are beautifully undone locs that naturally frame the face while creating this euphoric vibe. A modern combination of passion twists and goddess locs, this style is relatively low-maintenance and puts less tension on your natural hair than faux locs. The difference with butterfly locs are the curly loops created, giving them their signature look.

But do not let the beauty of this look deter you if you're a first-timer. This in-demand look is dominating our feeds because it's both easy to install and maintain. While there are a few different methods to achieve butterfly locs, beginners can successfully recreate this look with a bit of time and patience. Butterfly locs are achieved using the crochet method, where wavy hair is looped into a braid using a crochet needle and then loosely wrapped to give it an unraveled look.

How Long Do Butterfly Locs Last?

If maintained properly, butterfly locs can last you 2 to 3 months - essentially the entire summer season. The amount and type of hair you'll need are dependent on your natural hair length and your dired loc length. If you're wanting more bounce, opt for the shorter length with water wave hair. For the longer style, you'll need to factor in filler hair as well to achieve the messy, bohemian look.

The look is ethereal and celebrates natural hair without damaging your natural hair. If you're on the hunt for your next lightweight protective style, add these looks to your saved tab for your next go-to summer style.
