Introducing the Man Bun: The Hairstyle All Men Should Get for 2015

Long hair used to be reserved for the rock gods and the wash outs, and it was usually coupled with an inordinately large amount of facial piercings and tattoos. It was presumed that a man with long hair was not entirely successful. I even remember my dad saying to me at a very young age, “Never marry a man with long hair, he’s going nowhere!”

My my well how things have changed. Enter the Man Bun! This new hairstyle is challenging stereotypes everywhere, with more and more men growing out some luscious locks in order to rock the Man Bun. Not to be confused with the topknot, undercut or a lazy bun, the Man Bun is when hair is pulled back from the forehead and tied up just in the center of your head, and there can be some hair left out if that is what you desire. The Man Bun is proving to be so popular that there have been tons of YouTube videos made just to explain to men everywhere how to execute the look.

It has so many different options it’s ridiculous! The Man Bun can be laid back and relaxed or office appropriate. It can be made into a wild, disheveled ‘just out of bed’ mess or into a posh looking gentleman’s cut. Limitless options abound and women will appreciate every single one.

How Should You Wear Your Man Bun?

The truth is that any way you do a Man Bun it is going to be shit hot. But we understand that everyone has their own unique styles that they want to match their hair with, so here are a few options for the different Man Bun looks:


  • Office Appropriate: Slick back the top of your hair and tie it in a tidy bun. This combined with a good suit and tie will not only look professional, but it is also irresistible. Just btw.


  • Sporty Look: Think David Beckham. A loosish bun with some hair left hanging out.


  • Rugged: Ah! The combination of an untidy Man Bun and beautiful beard….. I can’t even go on.


If these options are not enough to convince you to grow your hair for a Man Bun, then all you have to do is have a look at the latest celebrities who are jumping on the bandwagon. Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest in a long line of famous men who have been spotted wearing it, and frankly we can’t imagine him with anything else now. Bradley Cooper’s Man Bun has woman everywhere trying to convince their partners to grow their hair, so as just to have a little bit of their fantasy at home.


Q: How long does it take to grow a man bun?

A: If you're starting off with short hair a man bun can take upwards of a year and a half to grow out, if your starting point is medium length it shouldn't take you longer than 8 months.

The great thing about the Man Bun is that it suits pretty much everyone regardless of face shape or style. So if you haven’t started growing your hair out to at least try the Man Bun, then you better get going pretty soon, otherwise you could be missing out on basically the most sexy hairstyle since….. Well. Ever.
