Man buns became an “official trend” in 2015 and are still going strong. Man buns are… interesting. Sometimes they look awesome, and sometimes they look strange. They are basically the male version of the culotte (in that the opposite sex doesn’t dig it, but the trend prevails anyways, because not everything is about attraction, okay?!). The guys who look best in man buns, in my opinion, are those who are so insanely masculine that the long hair bun adds a warrior-like vibe to him. (See: Brock O’Hurn.) When it works, it freaking works, and the sexy man bun draws lusty gazes from men and women alike. When it doesn’t work, it looks like the guy is trying too hard to adapt to an image that just doesn’t suit him.
But hey, who am I to judge? If a dude wants to wear his hair in a man bun, he can… and it doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks at the end of the day, if he’s into it! Still, I can’t help but think this hairstyle is like the mullet of the 80s, and we’ll all be laughing at it in ten years.
In all seriousness, though, while I personally don’t think man buns look good on most guys, if the person wearing the man bun is into it, more power to them. I’m still going to make fun of it, though, because ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR. Here are the funniest things people have said about man buns:
1. Guys are always trying to get away with a short hair man bun.
