Seriously, the man bun has such great demand that guys are buying man bun clip-ins to get the look — gotta’ fake it ’til you make it, right! Whether you’re looking for a new way to style your man bun, or need just a little more inspiration to get you to finally consider trying out this hairstyle, take a look at the five new ways to style it. And of course, we curated quick and easy hair tutorials for how you can do it on your own!
1. The Undone Man Bun
Step 1: Sleek and controlled hair is the key to nailing this look. Wash hair with Dove Men + Care Aqua Impact Fortifying Shampoo to clean and add moisture to your hair. For a sleek finish, your hair must be hydrated as dry hair gives the look a dull appearance.
Step 2: Apply some of the Bed Head for Men by TIGI Matte Separation Workable Wax to provide your look with hold and definition.
Step 3: Smooth your hair into a neat (but not too tight) ponytail. Take the ends of the hair and loop it halfway through leaving the ends out for a super cool undone look.
2. The Diamond Undercut Man Bun
Step 1: Ideal for men who have a widow peak, this diamond shaped undercut hairstyle is the new way to make bold geometric statement with your hair. Ask your barber to create this angular cut to register the clean and sharp lines.
Step 2: To sculpt your straight look into a sleek style, use some of the Axe Smooth Look Shine Pomade. Work the product into your hair and loop your ends once through your hair tie for a “half-in” man bun style.
3. The Hipster Man Bun
Step 1: Best done on second or third-day hair, refresh hair with some dry shampoo.
Step 2: Skip the brush and use your hands to comb through your hair to create texture and to work the dry shampoo through your hair.
Step 3: Gather hair into ponytail at the center of your crown and secure with a hair elastic.
Step 4: Loop the ends through the elastic to create a bun and you’re done!
4. The Low Man Bun
Step 1: Wash hair with Dove Men + Care Thick & Strong Fortifying 2 In 1 Shampoo + Conditioner to create a visibly thicker look to your hair.
Step 2: For a style that embraces your natural texture if you have wavy or curly hair opt for air-drying.
Step 3: Once dry use a wide-tooth comb or brush to gently detangle.
Step 4: Smooth hair back into a low bun and loop the ends through until it’s secure.
5. The New Classic
Step 1: Prep clean hair with heat protectant spray. Then, use a blowdryer to give you a straight finish.
Step 2: Apply some of the Axe Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade throughout your hair for a medium hold, then gather hair into a ponytail that’s positioned at eye-level.
Step 3: Wrap the ends of your hair around the base of the bun then secure with hair pins.
