Our story
Welcome to a behind-the-scenes look at Butterfly Hair.

We started the business in 2006 - becoming the UK’s only retailer of African Butterfly Hair clips. Having understood the story behind the hair clips, we just had to become a part of it. Here’s a little more information about the makers of these fantastic hair accessories.

Manufactured in the Gauteng region of South Africa, the African Butterfly Company employ both full-time and part-time locals to hand-make each individual hair clip. Employees benefit from the stability and the fair wage they receive. It’s more than just manufacturing for them, the employment and opportunities provided by the African Butterfly Company help men and women who have to cope with poverty and the devastating effect that AIDS is having on bread-winners in their community.

We’re extremely proud to have such a rich history and purpose to our business - which gives us that extra push to get bigger and better!
If you’ve seen us at exhibitions and trade shows then you’ll probably have met Lin or myself, Nicky. We’re a family-run business based in Bedfordshire, selling internationally. If you’d like to attend a show or check out where we’ll be next, please click here.

Butterfly Hair clips are our passion. We’ve all had those bad hair days, but our clips help you wave them goodbye. With so many colours and styles to choose from we’re sure you’ll find the right one for you.
