The man bun makes me weak in the knees.
Check out Gavin Rossdale, who was sporting one last night:
Now, it's partly just my generation. I was a teenager in the 90s, which means that every single one of my boyfriends from age 15 to 21 had long hair. Literally. You've seen a picture of my high school boyfriend, and I could unearth pics of the three that followed him, all of whom had long, luxurious hair.
But it isn't the shaggy mane or the ponytail that gets me going . . . it is specifically the man bun.
Here are some more examples of hotties rockin' buns:
Casey James, from last season's American Idol. He looked a zillion times hotter with the man bun than when he wore his hair down. Man bun + drawl = xtra hottt.
RIP Heath; you sure did know how to sport the man bun.
my poet crush, Li-Young Lee--now this may not be a man bun PROPER, but I've seen him live & in the flesh with the man bun atop his head
These next two pictures are going to require a little faith. Because while you can't see the actual man bun . . . you just have to trust that it's there. It's just proof that the man bun looks hot from the front as well.
Hello, Orlando. I love your locks.
Arguably the hottest man alive with the messy version of the bun.
So what do you think: Man Bun, yay or nay? What quirky trend do you think is smokin' hot?
