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. Continue reading
Get the best view of the topknot undercut with this photo!
One of the best ways to fully visualize a hairstyle as a barber is to see the hairstyle from all angles. As a matter of fact, this same practice is also extremely useful for those of you wanting to get one hairstyle or the other (or one haircut or the other). That’s why, if you come to my barbershop, you will see our own hairstyle photo book with all haircuts portrayed in different angles (we usually do four angles per haircut). The same goes for all the hairstyles that we also do, but it’s mostly haircuts that our barbershop clients ask us for.
Another great way to see how a hairstyle looks is by seeing it on an average Joe, a regular dude. Not one of those handsome male model dudes or celebrity guys who are obsessed with themselves and only with themselves (Oh, hey there, Zayn Malik and Jared Leto). You’ve gotta see the hairstyle on a dude who is just as ugly (or not much-more handsome) than yourself. Hence, I dig it when we get pictures of our site’s readers. Continue reading
A full guide on the 7 types of manbun hairstyles for dudes
While the man bun is a global hairstyle, it can certainly be customized to one’s own preferences and tastes. A man bun is simply a bun that is placed on the vertex area of the head (i.e. the crown), although even it’s positioning can be moved about on the head (higher or lower) as in the case of the low man bun hairstyle!
As a barber who too has a man bun, I get a lot of questions from my barbershop customers about getting a man bun and about growing hair long. I’ve gone as far as publishing a popular man bun hairstyle guide that has all the information that you need on the man bun and which too touches upon the different types of manbuns. So, considering that the manbun is a hairstyle that leaves a lot to the imagination, I want to now dedicate this guide that you’re reading to covering all the types of man buns.
These are the 7 main types of man buns for men:
- Full man bun
- Semi man bun
- Low man bun
- High man bun
- Man bun undercut
- Man bun taper cut
Let’s now continue this guide and go through them all in detail! Continue reading
