As the summer heat continues to set fire to fashion and style, there has been an influx of men, rocking the ‘bun’ hairstyle.
This ancient Roman hairstyle has taken the world by storm. Celebrities, from One Direction’s Harry Styles, to actor and bad boy Collin Ferrell, have been captured on many occasions, red carpet included, rocking the man bun with their own little twist, of course.
Who’s best suited for the ‘man bun’, you may ask? Well, it seems that the only real requirement is long hair. Some men have gone so far as to add extensions to achieve the desired look. This trend knows no bounds. It has transcended all ethnicities, young and old. Whether professional or recreational, the man bun continues to blossom.
Women, for many years have resorted to the trusty bun hairstyle on those bad hair days, but it seems as if the men want in on the action, also. They are keeping those rubber bands, twist bands, and scrunchies handy. And they have become quite creative, i might add. Wearing their buns to the side, to the back, and more recently, the top knot. However, some do go a little far, and are downright comical.
I find the trend quite interesting, but I have mixed feelings about it. There are some men, though, who can pull the bun off a lot better than others. However, many men are opting to go to the salon to find the proper bun for their own unique style.
What are your thoughts on the man bun a.k.a. the ‘honey’ bun? Is it a good look for your significant other or potential mate? My feelings are, though I am not a huge fan, I can see how women are drawn to a man not afraid to step outside of the hairstyle box, it’s just not right for me.
