The Man Bun hairstyle is alive and well for 2018 and beyond
Off goes 2017; welcome 2018! I apologize for having been away but all the work at our barbershop has left me with almost no time to blog about our favorite men’s hairstyle and way of life. Our barbershop has grown so much that we’ve open a second one and I didn’t remember just how much energy the opening of a new business saps your energy! With my partner and our staff, things have smoothed out and we’re on our way to 2018 like a boss!
Also, I was involved mid last year in a motorcycle accident. I was hit by a car that invaded my lane in a blind curve. I was actually coming back home for lunch to then go back to my barbershop, so I was not suited up ATGATT (i.e. with all my protective motorcycle gear). I was only wearing a helmet, a light leather jacket, jeans and some boots. Thankfully, I was only clipped by the oncoming car at 40 miles per hour prior to impact so I was lucky to flow over the bonnet of the car and slid on my right side and back for about 50 feet before coming to a stop. The leather jacket burst and left me some bad road rash on my right arm. The jeans fared even worse and my right thigh and hip is pretty bust up with road rash and a knee fracture.
Luckily I needed no surgery and I was sent home after two days in the hospital. Insurance paid it all and I was at no fault (of course I was since that damn car invaded my lane!). I’ve got a new motorcycle and will continue to ride. While I own two businesses, I have no kids or wife. I do usually take my motorcycle gear very seriously, but accidents can happen when you least expect it. For those of you riders and bikers out there, check out this excellent motorcycle gear guide that details and explains everything about protective motorcycle clothing and gear; it’s a long guide so make up some time to read it. I did email the guy who owns the site and he confirmed that the leather jacket I was wearing is known to burst on impact, so buy your motorcycle gear wisely; it’s all I can say.
Some people say that the man-bun hairstyle is over; they don’t know squat. We continue to get tons of dudes coming to our barbershop asking for manbun undercuts, topknot fade haircuts and even manbun undershave haircuts! Sure, you don’t see the manbun as prominently as days gone, but it’s still there and the hairstyle in itself created a sub-culture that was kickstarted by this very-same website. I cannot but thank you all for the many years supporting this website and this hairstyle that we all love and cherish (in a manly way, y’all know).
Here’s to wishing you all man-bun dudes a great 2018 and let’s keep our manbuns raised and proud!
