Man buns are all over the place these days. So of course clip-in man buns are a thing. Turns out that some guys just can’t wait for their luscious locks to grow long enough to toss them up into a luscious bun. If you know one of these men, you can get them a man bun on Groupon for $9.99 and they were originally priced at $63, so it’s really a bargain. Get yours today.
OK, now can we talk about these man buns for real? It’s understandable that everyone has personal preferences about body hair. But this is just very confusing. Beards and man buns used to be reserved for weirdos who live in the woods or Game of Thrones characters. But now every male hipster from Bushwick to Buckman is sporting a beard. Or a man bun. Or both. It’s a travesty. Whatever happened to a good, clean shave? The good thing about this Groupon deal is that guys can totally go either way. They’re pitching it for Renaissance men who travel in diverse crowds. Seriously, here’s the pitch:
One of the hottest trends in men’s fashion, the man bun has been popularized by fixed-gear bicyclists and introspective Hollywood actors alike. But although the hairstyle oozes with fashion sense, those who sport it might find themselves outcasts in sports bars, motorcycle gangs, and the annual government-mandated machismo test. This attachable—and, equally important, detachable—man bun lets you blend in with your surroundings, putting it on when you smell fair-trade coffee or hear a banjo, and taking it off when someone utters the word bro.
Check out the models:
I mean, really, it’s rather amazing. Even more amazing? Seventy people have already bought the Groupon deal as I sit here typing about its ridiculousness. That means there are 70 men out there who are psyched to be pinning their brand new man bun into their head before their next Tinder date arrives. Or perhaps pinning one to their head this very minute.
Let’s stop this insanity. OK, or not. (Whatever you’re into.)
