The best thing about having long hair is that you can style it in sooo many ways, from buns, ponytails, to braids. But let's be honest: We don't always have a lot of time to get ready. If you want to switch up your look without putting in the effort, may we suggest getting a "butterfly" haircut?

Coined by hairstylist Sunnie Brook, this trending "butterfly" cut on TikTok is all about having lots of pretty, bouncy layers (think: Rachel Green from Friends' iconic hairstyle) that frame the face. Even with little to no styling, the heavily layered cut looks effortlessly cool!

It has a mix of two sections: Short, chin-length layers that add volume to the hair and long layers that fall below the shoulders. What's nice is, the combination of "two haircuts" also gives you "the option to play with short hair without having to commit to cutting all your hair off," Sunnie told PureWow. "It's a fun, almost optical illusion to change up your style and give the appearance of a big change."

While it would suit different hair types, it works best for thick or wavy hair because adding layers will enhance its natural texture.

Doesn't it look gorgeous?!
