Mission: The Man Bun

Three words, one look, and millions of hair ties: The Man Bun.

In society today, the Man Bun is at an all-time high when it comes to men’s fashion. Celebrities such as Jared Leto, Chris Hemsworth, Orlando Bloom and David Beckham are all legendary men who have rocked the Man Bun–but what exactly is a Man Bun?

It’s pretty much a hairstyle worn by men with long hair who pull it up in a tight bun. There are many different ways a Man Bun could be worn: pulled tight together on top of the head, a small bun on top of the head with hair shaved on the side, bun loosely pulled together with strands of hair coming out or even a simple headband can be worn with it.

Needless to say, the style of the bun depends on the style of the man. We are all different, so why can’t Man Buns be?!

Check out some of these cuties around campus who know how to rock The Man Bun!
