It looks like guys now-a-days are looking back to samurai culture for hair tips. Yesterday, in an article titled Spare a Hair Band? A Man Bun to Go, the New York Times reported that a new trend of the “Man Bun” is emerging. It looks to me that the style is reminiscent of the historical “topknot” hairstyle worn by samurai warriors.
I’ve actually seen this style worn before by rock stars and athletes but now it seems that everyday guys are adopting the “Man Bun” as an easy go-to style. It’s worth mentioning that I haven’t seen any curly or kinky-haired dudes rocking the “Man Bun”…well not yet at least. For more on the trend, check out this article from Gothamist.
What do you think? Yay or nay?
