Butterfly hair accessories have been fluttering up everywhere and we are obsessed!

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. ?  

Need a new way to upgrade your everyday hairstyle? Butterfly hair accessories are back and better than ever. They’ve been fluttering across our social media feeds and at all our favourite events, and once you see just how pretty they look you’ll be trying the trend next.

So cancel that salon appointment, because not every new hairstyle requires a haircut or colour. Instead, spruce up your look with zero commitment by adding quirky butterfly accessories to your everyday style – et voila, you will have a new ‘do for every day!

Garden box braids

This beautiful box braid wearer was spotted at Afropunk London, and we just love how she has placed cute floral and butterfly accessories throughout the lengths of her woven strands.

Editor’s tip: Want to ensure your hair is moisturised while in box braids? We suggest misting them with the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Hydrating MistThis will help keep your hair in the best condition (and smelling great, too)!

Vanessa Hudgens practically invented the flower crown that we all know and love, so when she rocked up to the 2017 Billboard Awards with gorgeous, ethereal butterfly clips in her hair we had to take notice.
