The ‘Man-Bun’


Over time hairstyles come, go, come back again, get twisted, remixed and blur gender lines. The best part about all of this? They always stay interesting and worth talking about. The most talked about style over the past little while has most definitely been the ‘man-bun’.

Whether you’re a fan of the style or not it has definitely made quite the impact on the hair industry and popular culture as a whole. If you’re a man with long hair it provides a way in which to wear it that is not only stylish but can keep the hairs from out of your face. This particular hairstyle has become rather influential. “Man-bun mania has spread to everything from Halloween costumes to 70,000-follower-strong Instagram accounts and tongue-in-cheek memes featuring joke du jour, Donald Trump. But over the last six months, something has shifted. Almost overnight, the trend swapped hands. Or should we say, heads. Style savvy women everywhere are reclaiming the look. Out of nowhere, the fem-bun appeared.”

The fact that this bun style is one that both men and women can rock is pretty incredible. Regardless of how you may feel about the particular style, it appears as if it won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. If your hair is the appropriate length and you want to give this style a try, make sure to consult with your Ottawa hair stylist as they will be able to provide you with the right styling techniques to ensure your bun is the best it can be!
