The Man Bun Hairstyle For Men



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. My, my, 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. This hairstyle 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.

How Should You Wear Your Man Bun?

The truth is that any way you do a Man Bun it is going to be 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.

How long does it take to grow a man bun?

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.
