Ladies and gentleman, I’m taking of the internet’s foremost curly hair expert Rogelio Samson, a man who has provided the tools and knowledge for curly men worldwide to, as he calls it, rock an epic “awesome mane”.

After publishing my man bun guide for curly hair and seeing how so many of this site’s readers were talking of Rogelio Samson in the comments, I thought that it’d be a good idea to interview the man who has revamped the outlook on men’s curly hair and who has led the field with his ManlyCurls.com website and his two books: “The Curly Hair Book” and “The Men’s Hair Book”.

Harry Styles Man Bun Hairstyle

Harry Styles rocks a man bun like a Sir

Harry Styles is one overrated singer, but we do agree that he knows how to wear a man bun. Harry Styles man bun hairstyle shows that dudes with long wavy hair can rock their buns while looking trendy. I dig that blazer too, just for the record (although guys like Harry have image consultants by the dozen; I would not expect anything less).

Harry Styles looks to have been growing his mane longer and longer, so, as long as he keeps his long tresses and rocks a man bun, he’s welcome here. Rock on, Mr. Styles!
