The Man Bun (Jared Leto, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Chris Hemsworth)
We always talk about the ladies over here on the blog, so it was definitely time to let the guys shine for a moment! Men’s hair styles are not talked about online nearly as much as women’s hairstyles, and we have one particular men’s style that we would like to harp on today- the man bun! We have all seen it and heard about it, and this style is definitely one of those “love it or hate it” sort of styles. From surfer dudes to Hollywood stars, this hairstyle is making girls swoon, so let’s jump in to how you can get the perfect man bun!
The first step in achieving the perfect man bun is obviously having hair that is long enough to go into a bun. Once your hair hits about shoulder length or a bit above, you should be able to get most of your hair into some form of a bun. Growing out your hair can be a chore, but just be sure to keep it healthy and moisture to maximize growth and speed up the process as much as possible. If you choose to have long hair then you really have to make the commitment to take care of your mane, otherwise it won’t be worth the hassle.
Next, there are a few different types of man buns you can choose from. Those with long, this hair can go for the full-on swirly bun, but those whose hair is not as long can maybe go for more of a “loop” style. You want to be aware of the placement of your man bun on your head. Too low looks strange as well as too high. Typically, a man bun sits at the back of the head, slightly lower than the crown. However with confidence and the right thickness and texture, you can rock your bun wherever you choose. To give your bun more of a hold, adding a styling product such as a gel or a mouse can really help to hold your hair in place! There is nothing more annoying than having to re-do your bun over and over again through out the day. Trust the ladies on that one, guys!
Our major man bun inspirations are Jared Leto, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Chris Hemsworth. All of these men rock their man buns with style and we can’t get enough!
