The resurgence of the man bun
Although it may seem like the latest hipster hairstyle trend, the man bun has been around for thousands of years in a variety of styles. When thinking of the man bun many images spring to mind: David Beckham in the Real Madrid years, historic Japanese Samurai warriors, Leonardo DiCaprio's recent hipster beard and bun or beach bumming hippy surfers too laid-back to visit a hairdresser.
Whatever your stance on the man bun, or if you would like to grow one, there's no denying its popularity as an alternative male hairstyle throughout history.
