Twisted Man Bun Tutorial



Start clean and choose your styler.

Before creating your twisted man bun, wash hair with Dove Men + Care Fresh & Clean Fortifying 2-In-1 Shampoo for a deep cleanse and condition. Once your hair is clean, choose your styler of choice. We recommend using a product that’ll help you mold your twist and keep your hair in tact like Dove Men + Care Scuplting Paste.




Apply product.

Work a fingertip amount of product throughout the lengths of your hair.



Brush your hair.

Brush hair to smoothen and detangle, then brush in the direction you want your bun to go. In this case, brush hair into a low ponytail.





Twist your hair.

Twist the sides of your hair flat, then hold the ends of your hair and twist it around your fingers until it coils.




Create your man pony.

Gather your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a hair elastic.

Loop the ends of your hair into a bun and there you have it! Your simple, and dapper twisted man bun hairstyle.
