4. Braided Half Ponytail

If you can do a regular braid you can do an accent braid. We know it sounds funny but trust us it’s totally stylish. Just create a simple braid from a small section of your hair around your ear. Then pull the top half of your hair into a half ponytail. The ponytail holder will secure both the ponytail and the braid. This super stylish look is a winner.

5. Messy Half Up Man Bun

We’re obsessed with this half up look with shaved sides. You don’t need to have super long hair to create a man bun! This mini bun was done with hair that’s only chin length. The half up look shows off your shaved sides perfectly. Leave the rest of your hair down to show off that length.

This dapper man bun is perfect for formal occasions. It’s really only one more step from your normal man bun routine. Just apply a little bit of the Bed Head For Men By TIGI Matte Separation Workable Wax to the front sections of your hair so it will hold in the twist. Then, twist those front sections backwards. Finish the style by pulling all of your hair into a low man bun.
