This year, the man bun has upped the casual factor even more, with a surfer-y, laid-back style proving most popular. Instead of tying the hair at the top of the head, it is pulled to the back of the head or the nape of the neck. For an even more relaxed look, pull or leave a few strands out around the face, or leave a ‘tail’ of sorts like Jason Momoa. Bonus? This look is super easy to achieve.
The man bun is back for summer 2021. Here’s how (and why) you should style it
Ah, the man bun. A divisive hipster staple in the 2010s, and one that many of us (myself included) were glad to see virtually disappear for the past few years.
Now though, it seems like the man bun is back. It seems the likes of Brad Pitt and Antoine Griezmann are proving that it might just have outgrown its hipster reputation.
With longer hair proving a definite trend in 2021 (likely because of the months of lockdown and lack of access to a haircut that isn’t performed by your mum with the kitchen scissors), it seems that a cultural reset on the man bun is here. And honestly? We’re ready to welcome it back with open arms. Here’s how to bring the man bun into 2021.
