Step 2: Create The Butterfly Face-Frame With Vertical Sections
The key to the “butterfly” layered effect is cutting smooth, even sections that do not fray through the ends. This haircut is heavily layered, meaning it’s essential to use razor-sharp scissors that do not snag the hair. Creating any kind of hole or breakage will disrupt the symmetrical blend needed. To ensure precise, clean lines Justin uses his go-to, ARC™ Scissors Master Series Paragon II.
