Is a Man Bun Right for You?

Did you think the man bun craze was over? Well, think again! The man bun is alive and well and men are finding fun ways to make the style fresh and exciting. So if you’ve been thinking about growing out your hair to rock this style, you can be confident this look is here to stay. Here are some of the freshest ways to sport a great-looking man bun.

Bun with Dreadlocks

The man bun and Black hair make for a stellar look. Once you’ve put the time and effort into growing out your hair and twisting it into dreadlocks, you’ll want to make the most of the look. A great way to casually show off your impressive dreads is to tie them up into loose man bun. Not only is it a great way to switch up your look every once and awhile, you’ll also find it to be quite practical at times.

Mini Bun

If you’re a man with medium-length hair, you’re still invited to the man bun party. While you may not be able to rock a full bun quite yet, a low-profile mini bun looks surprisingly suave. For this look, you’ll need to tie up your hair lower to prevent the shorter hairs from hanging loose. But the end result will look cool and relaxed.

Man Bun with Mid-Fade

Akin to the wolf-tail look, this variation of the man bun combines the trendy look with a tight fade. Rather than letting the hair extend out into the wolf-tail, this style ties off the hair to create a sleeker look. This style works well with all hair textures, including medium to long dreadlocks.

Half Bun

This handsome style is a fun way to mix up your look when your hair gets longer. The half bun keeps the top half of your hair tied up while you let the rest of your hair hang down. This look gives off a classy vibe and keeps your hair out of your face while still allowing some of it to hang loose.

Two-Toned Bun

Switching up the color of your hair is a great way to add a whole new dimension to your hairstyle. One way to make your bun really stand out is to get a fade on the sides and to bleach the hair on top or add a bright color. You can also keep your hair the same length and dye the ends of your hair that get tied up. This look is sure to exude a sense of edginess and confidence.

Classic Man Bun

Why not go out with the OG? The classic man bun look is fairly straightforward to achieve. The style works with hair that is shoulder length or longer, which is then tied up high and tight. It looks great with all types of hair and works well with a mustache, beard, or clean-shaven face.
