I'm seeing a lot of these around lately:



Does this hair cut come with a free hacky-sack?

    Exceedingly few are able to pull it off.
    It's definitely not for me.

    I suppose if you have long hair, the bun is great because you just tie your tresses up and you're done. No hair goop or styling needed.

    But yeah, dudes have been rocking the bun/topknot for a couple years in my neck of the woods.

    I'm no better with my beard + skin fade :/

    I was recently in Maui and saw 3 in one day. They all had the sides shaved though, like clean sides, and barely enough hair to pull it up top. Maybe not a bun, but a top pony? Either way, it was NAGL.

    You mean like a 1990's undercut?

    That look has been going on for quite some time over here in Australia. Commonly referred to as the 'top knot'.

    My lady was talking about this older guy in our neighborhood who has a whitehaired version of this. I didn't recall seeing him, so I asked for more of a description and all she could say was "He really creeps me out."

    No worries. This is just everyone wanting to be Wade Garrett in Roadhouse.

    Hey Raj,

    It seems that more effeminate looks for men are in style right now. Apparently, the 'manly man' is so 1990s. ;-)

    effeminate looks for men are in style right now.

    Basically the look that chicks dig a lot of times. Euro-man, Japan-man stylez.

    I used to pride myself on not giving into these stylez, but my ex's have slowly but surely turned me
    into said Japan-man "clean" outfits.

    On the opposite spectrum, I still see dudes from time to time, being sloppy with their fashion and lifestyle...

    With all due respect, I wouldn't characterize the "bun" as effeminate so much as it looks more on some yogi styles, especially with a beard, and I think some women love that because it doesn't say "9 to 5er". Throw in visible neck/hand tattoos on a dude and younger women (in particular) seem to find it highly attractive (not all, natch).

    Looks are just a code to denote your socioeconomic status, your interests, your health, etc., and the code is largely set by the fashion industry. Today's "bun" will be replaced by an updated rat-tail, which will be replaced by clean shaven crew-cuts...etc.

    Like many looks, you can get away with it a lot more effectively if you are a bad motherfucker to begin with. See Opie from Sons of Anarchy:

    Ok I feel we getting close to a strutter fessing up on this.

    One of the dudes who keep touting Rumours. Or one of the DnB / Junglist crowd.

    Where's the betting?

    Yes! I will send a random record to any strutter that posts a pic of themself wearing a legit man bun or top-knot while holding any record.

    ^ turns out this was staged but entertaining none the less.

    I agree with their stance, knots are lame buns okay.

    He would've had to have grown it out since we met him in Lahndon though - vaguely remember the dude as being not that Dutty after all, maybe a grade 2?

    I never understood why straight women like the skinny androgynous look on men. It is beyond me me how dudes like Prince, Rick James or Michael Jackson could ever become sex symbols. For some reason there are very few men who like androgynous looking women with facial hair, no titties, a broad back, narrow hips and a baldhead...
