The man bun is more popular than ever and we are even starting to see it making appearances oi the runway and even the red carpet. An article in GQ suggested that the man bun was the “final frontier of grooming.” That’s pretty cool and it just goes to show how popular the style really is. Brad Pitt and Jared Leto have been rocking the man bun and have made it even more popular. That’s all you need is someone famous to wear a style and suddenly it’s popular all over again.
If you are unsure of what a man bun consists of let us remind you that it’s just like the female bun but on a man. It’s worn on the crown of the head or even at the nape of the neck, that’s all in your preference. You pull your hair into a simple ponytail and then twist it into the traditional bun style. There are many modern ways of wearing the style as well if you are looking for something edgier.
If you are thinking of trying out the man bun, then you definitely need to start growing out your hair. In order to achieve a man bun, you need about eight or nine inches to allow you to have the most freedom in a bun. Something you are going to have to learn when it comes to having long hair is that you have to take care of it, especially while it’s growing.
If you are interested in the man bun, then you have come to the right place.
