What Is A Man Bun?

A man bun is simply a long hairstyle for men that requires gathering all your hair into a bun. Similar to a top knot or man ponytail, the difference is a more rounded knot of hair that rests in the back of the head as opposed to the top. To get a man bun tied up, you’ll need to grow out your hair to at least several inches.

However, men who want the man bun can cut their hair on the sides short or long. For example, you may want to add an undercut, taper fade, bald fade, or even shaved sides to contrast with the longer hair on top.

How To Do A Man Bun

You’ve probably seen a few guys with hair buns, but may still be wondering how to do a man bun. The final look really depends on how you like to style your hair, messy or neat, but the same overall steps apply. Similarly, how tight you want your hair and what feels comfortable for you will determine how you tie a man bun.

To get a man bun, brush all of your hair to the back of your head and hold all of the strands at one point. Next, you can either fold the remaining hair, use a hair band to tie it in place and create a man ponytail or you can grab your hair from the end, spiral about that point and use your hair like rope to keep it in place. How you tie a man bun is all about personal preference and art so be creative and find unique ways to get your hair bun.
