Butterfly Bun Hairstyle

When it comes to spring hairstyles, this butterfly bun hairstyle is the perfect go-to for your child. I love finding hairstyles that will work for certain seasons and this butterfly hairstyle is just perfect. I know that there are certain butterfly styles like a butterfly braid and butterfly ponytail, but this is the butterfly bun.


It’s a super simple and easy hairstyle to do. It’s one of those styles that once you get it down, you’ll be able to do it again and again and again. I’m all about sharing hairstyles that aren’t too difficult because (honestly) who has the time? All of my hairstyles can be done in minutes. None of them take an extended period of time.

This butterfly bun is one of my favorite hairstyles for Victoria. It’s a hairstyle that really did well on TikTok, too. We had over 2 million views on this one.

Also – If you want a good tip, the dirtier the hair is – the better. It seems to keep it in place better. I prefer this on her because that’s the texture of her hair.

Everyone keeps asking us about our favorite products – I created a FULL post on My Favorite Hair Products. I share how we get her hair so shiny and smooth, too.
