Want to feel personally victimised at your next family gathering? Wear a man bun hairstyle! Yep, it’s one of those long hairstyles for men trends that’s divided the world. Half of us seem to love the look, while the other half cannot bear it. As seen on many celebrities, sports stars and your standard hipster, man bun styles, it seems, are here to stay whether you like them or not!
If you’re a fan of this hairstyle for men and have the guts to give it a go - here are a few dos and don’ts about how to do a man bun…
Depending on the length of your hair to begin with, you’re going to need at least 6 months to a year to grow out enough hair for this popular men’s hairstyle. You’ll need to grow your hair to around mid-neck/shoulder length for a perfectly styled man bun.
To encourage your hair to grow faster, go for regular trims! This sounds counterproductive, we know, but regularly trimming your hair encourages faster growth. Avoid split ends (an epic fail for man buns) and wash your hair every second or third day. Afterwards, use a nourishing hair oil with ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba oil or coconut oil.
Step 1: Place a hair band around your wrist. Beginning at your temples, brush the top section of your hair back, away from your face. Brush your hair to the level you want your man bun to sit, whether this is a low bun or a top knot.
Step 2: Hold this top section of your hair with one hand in place. Then use your free hand and gather up the rest of your loose hair until it’s all gathered into one hand.
Step 3: Grab your hair band off your wrist and pull your hair through it. On your last pull through, only take your hair half-way through the hair band to create the ‘bun’. And, you’re done!
