I’ve noticed that during the holiday and party season, that men’s hairstyles are a lot longer. This includes high fades, low fades, bald fades, with or without hard part disconnection, or simply cut with sheers for a more natural short-hair look.
The pompadour was a popular men’s hairstyle in 2016. The latest trend that I’ve been seeing are modern versions of the pomp that are longer, looser, and blown dry to give some big hair styles with movement. The pompadour is fine, I suppose, but I’m still loving the Man Bun.
Long hair used to be reserved for the rock gods and the wash outs, and it was usually coupled with facial piercings and tattoos. It was presumed that a man with long hair was not entirely successful. I even remember my dad saying to me: “Never marry a man with long hair, he won’t amount to anything!”
My how things have changed! Two years ago, the Man Bun was introduced into mainstream society. This hairstyle was challenging stereotypes everywhere, with more men growing out some luscious locks in order to rock the Man Bun. The Man Bun is when a guy’s hair is pulled back from the forehead and tied up in the center of his head. The Man Bun has proven to be so popular that there have been several YouTube videos made just to explain to men everywhere how to execute the look.
I know they are not as popular now, but I still love the Man Bun! It has so many different options that it’s ridiculous! The Man Bun can be laid back and relaxed, or office appropriate. It can be made into a wild, disheveled ‘just out of bed’ mess or into a posh looking gentleman’s cut. Limitless options abound and women, like me, will appreciate every single one!
The truth is that any way a guy does a Man Bun is hot. The great thing about the Man Bun is that it suits pretty much every man, regardless of face shape or style. So, guys, if you haven’t started growing your hair out to at least try the Man Bun, get with it already! Otherwise, you could be missing out on basically the most sexy hairstyle since ... Well, ever!
