6 Man Bun Hair Ideas For Dudes with Medium-Length to Long Hair

Modern man buns to wear this year.

This new year has seen lots of men shearing their locks for shorter looks. But, we’re still totally into the idea of medium-length to long hair on guys. It gives you so many more options than the buzz cut, and you can still wear man bun hair looks. We like man bun hair because it gets your hair out of your face while still looking stylish.

To make your 2017 man bun hair look that much more modern, it’s time to think about texture and style. Things like changing up your look will give your man bun so much depth. Read on to check out these six man bun hair ideas to try out on your hair.

Man Bun Hair Looks to Give a Try

1. Half-Up Man Bun

Take your half-up man bun up a notch by utilizing pomade to make a sleek, shiny texture. We like this look because it shows a bit of contrast. Your man bun will be a bit tight and shiny on top, and the rest of your hair is loose and textured. Contrast, dudes, makes for a great hairstyle. Style this look with the Axe Smooth Look: Shine Pomade through the top of your hair. Then, just pull the top half of your hair into a mini man bun.

2. Super-High Man Bun

Change up your man bun hair this year by trying out different placements as seen in this high-up man bun. If you’re going to wear a man bun, might as well show it off! To get this look, just pull your hair up slightly higher than you normally would. Then, just wrap your man bun as usual.

3. Man Bun with an Undercut

Haven’t tried an undercut hairstyle yet? Get on board for 2017! We love pairing up an undercut with a man bun. This style is great, particularly for dudes with super-thick hair. The undercut literally takes half your hair out of the equation. You’ll get a smaller bun but a much cooler look overall.

4. Dapper Low Man Bun

For a sleek and modern look, try out a dapper low bun. We like to style this look with a cool matte texture. To get the effect, use the Bed Head By TIGI Manipulator Matte Cream to slick down the top of your hair. You can add in twists to make this man bun even more dapper. Then, just pull your hair into a low bun right at the nape of your neck.

5. Mini-Man Bun

Who says you have to have tons of hair to wear a man bun? We think this teeny bun looks great because it’s super-sleek. The mini bun look is great for dudes with naturally straight hair. Just wear your man bun hair at least a few inches long to be able to tie it into a bun. This look also works well for dudes with an undercut.

6. The Undone Man Bun

Tired of the tight man bun? Try a looser style instead. Because of the loose texture of this style, wear the look with shiny hair. All you need to do is apply a bit of the AXE Spiked-Up Look: Extreme Hold Gel to your hair. It gives that sleek look and hold for your loose man bun hair.
