If, upon reading the headline here, your eyes rapidly darted just below, to find the associated content that followed– in some type of eager expectation of finding a description, expose or promiscuous diatribe focused upon a specific area of the male anatomy, sorry to disappoint you. Anything of that nature is not what you will find here. We’re talking about what might be loosely considered to be an anatomical component, although it is certainly no longer a vital part of the living body. No, what you will find here is a foray on a currently trending hairstyle, and one that is being taken up by members of the male species. Not that women’s hair is excluded in any way from this style, but this is more based on a hairstyle that is new to men, and at the same time is not so particularly noteworthy, from being nothing new to women at all.
A Little Knowledge is Helpful
No, what you will find here is a somewhat brief attempt to showcase/explain/justify the latest burgeoning man-trend fashion of man-buns. The first thing to know about them is that they make a loud and proud (but particular) statement, and anyone should first learn about how wearing man braids will define them before they clip one or a couple onto their man head. Whether your hair is long enough to form your own man-bun or you must go buy one to wear whenever the “man bun” mood strikes, sporting a man bun is one of the bolder fashion statements you can make. When worn in the right circles, a man bun can immediately credit you with a certain belonging that might never be possible otherwise.
Benefits of a Clip-On
While the purchasable variety has received a market value of around $65, you can pick one up for under $10, plus S&H, and the clip on variety will allow you the freedom to switch modes, back and forth, as you are so inspired. This price range will give you your very own man bun made from artificial hair, and with the wide variety of colors available, you should be able to match one to your own hair color without too much difficulty.
Worth the Risk?
There are concerns over how going to the man bun as your default hair-wear could wind up balding you. A condition known as Traction Alopecia can occur when the hair is kept pulled tightly back regularly–after a while. This condition gets worse with time, and sometimes it’s sadly been incurred and well-advanced before it is even noticed by the bun-wearer. This form of balding is generally seen around the hairline, where it’s most noticeable, and when women have been surveyed as to their take on this trend, an overwhelming majority used words like “abhor,” “never,” “feminine” and even “hate–” so…
We would love to hear from you! Tell us what YOU think about “man buns” – love, hate, could care less?? Could this be a fad that fades or lasts?
