To our delight (or dismay, I can't decide which), "man buns" are everywhere. They've been rocked by everyone from hipster dudes on the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn to our favorite male celebs, walking the red carpet at award shows. So naturally was only a matter of time before we saw a lady sporting a man bun... right? Er, right. Following the Victoria's Secret Fall Fashion Show last week, Kendall Jenner reportedly asked to wear a "man bus" to the after party — and now we can officially say that the hairstyle is here to stay.
Whether she's jetsetting in a chic cape or fighting off the rain in a fur coat and metallic booties, this 20-year-old is known for taking risks when it comes to fashion. And that may be just another benefit to growing up under a fiercely stylish trio of sisters. (After all, if your big sisters are Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian, how could you not turn out with a killer sense of style?) Though some of us will call what Kendall's sporting a half knot or simply a half-up bun, you have to admit that the 'do does draw some parallels to the coveted man bun. And man, does it look chic. Plus, Jenner proves the "man bun" isn't just for lazy Saturdays at a hipster coffee house. She rocked her own man bun in nothing but high style:
And while we're on the subject of man buns... here's further proof that the hairs style is taking over the world:
Clip-On Man Buns Are Now A Thing
For guys who want the look but may be — how shall I put this — sporting a little less hair up there, fear not: clip-on man buns are here! According to KVRR Fargo-Moorhead, stylists are embracing clip-on man buns because more and more men are looking to wear longer styles but don't have the hair to, well, cut it. And if you're one of those individuals, you're in luck: The Groupon is reportedly selling the extension for the low cost of $9.99.
And So Are Man Bun Fedoras, Believe It Or Not
This one's for dudes who love a good man bun, but also don't want to say goodbye to wearing hats... here it is: The micro Fedora. After all, why completely cover that majestic bun with an regular-sized hat? Now you can have the best of both worlds: a man bun mini-Fedora. And if it doesn't make sense to you (and most of the world), allow me to explain: it's a tiny hat that's perched atop the bun. OK, I don't get it either.
People Are Creatively Envisioning How World Leaders Look With Man Buns
And if you thought the Jenners were the only ones re-inventing the man bun, think again. Late last month, a company named Design Crown edited photos of world leaders so that they too could be blessed with the bun. So if you ever wondered what Barack Obama, George Washington, Vladimir Putin — and even Donald Trump — would look like with the style... you're welcome.
Viva la man bun!
