They say two is a coincidence and three is a trend, but with Lizzo, we’ll make an exception. The singer is clearly on the path to making butterfly-adorned hair a big trend after her second time wearing the nature-inspired accessories in her hair this summer.
Over the long Labor Day weekend, Lizzo shared two posts to Instagram — one multi-photo carousel and one video clip — in which she’s posing in a sheer, shiny, magenta mini dress and extra-large hoop earrings. “Starin at ya dress cus it’s see-thru… talkin all the shit u done been thru.. you say that u a Lizzbian girl me too😏,” she wrote in the caption. And yes, we definitely stared at the dress. But what we really can’t take out eyes off of is her hairstyle.
On either side of Lizzo’s pristine middle part are pigtails, both wrapped at the base to hide any hair elastics used to hold them in place. The wavy ponies reach well past the singer’s waist, brushing her rose-quartz manicure when she holds her hands on her hips. And topping it all off: about a dozen realistic-looking butterflies in pink, purple, and blue tones clipped throughout the length.
This is the second time in about a month that Lizzo has bedecked her hair with butterflies. During the first week of August, for virtual workshop with Dove, she wore an incredible Afro embellished with orange monarch butterfly barrettes. The fact that she decorated her pigtails with a similar accessory proves not only that she loves the look but that it works well with a variety of hairstyles.
We have a strong feeling this isn’t the last time we’ll see butterflies in Lizzo’s hair, and considering her far-reaching influence in the beauty realm, we’re quite sure they’ll be landing on people’s hairstyles throughout the rest of the year.
