Is the man bun a “masterpiece of seduction”?
I love buns. I wear them all the time. In fact, I can't recommend them enough as a go-to 'do for when your hair is dirty or just plain misbehaving.
Despite said admiration for this kind of up ‘do, I've never really given much thought to the man bun. You know, that hairstyle males with shoulder-length hair gravitate towards when they don't want their locks lingering in front of their face?
“The man bun is a masterpiece of seduction that lacks proper recognition.”
Now, I don't know about the whole “master of seduction” thing, but yes, this truly is a hairstyle that never seems to pop up in conversations or get any real street cred. And it's a pity, really, because I know firsthand how wonderful it feels to pull your long hair off your face at the end of the day – and men with long strands deserve that, too.
But is the man bun the reason some of Hollywood's most famous actors are deemed attractive?
Sure, Chris Hemsworth looks sexy, but is it the bun making him look like a hunk? Or do you think he'd look sensational no matter what his hair length or style? I'm not sure.
And yes, Johnny Depp is a heavenly-formed creature with some of the most handsome features around, but is he sexier with or without the man bun? I can't decide.
Either way, it's a darn good question, Schwarzkopf. And probably one the man bun itself has been hoping someone would pose for years.
So, what do you think? Is the man bun sexy? And does it deserve more credit than it currently receives?
