How to Use Butterfly Clips
Butterfly clips are an easy way to create up-dos for work or play. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

Sometimes you just want to keep the hair out of your face for a neat look. Other times, you want an easy but cute up-do. Butterfly clips allow you to create attractive hairstyles easily. These two-sided clips come in a variety of sizes and can be used on long, short, fine or thick hair. For a conservative look, choose clips close to your own hair colour.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Brush your hair back in the same manner you would a ponytail. Hold your hair in a large behind your head in the centre.

  2. 2

    Grab your hair into one section tightly. If you are creating a half-up look, grab the top half of your hair into a section.

  3. 3

    Twist your hair into one direction by turning your hand until your palm is face up. Continue to twist your hair until it is tight.

  4. 4

    Place your hair up close to your head so that your ends are facing upwards. You may also create a bun with the twist by wrapping the ends around the clump of hair so that the ends are tucked behind the bun.

  5. 5

    Open the butterfly clip and close it over the twist and the hair in the middle of your head to secure.
