Not all man bun are the same. Depending on your hair type, the length you wear and the technique/products you use to finish the look. You can wear your man bun in many different ways.

For a discreet look you can position your bun in the neck area. If you do not want to see the man-bun too much for work, the ideal is to position it at the nape of the neck because, as seen from the front, you hardly notice that you are wearing it.

Low Man Bun

A bun with a profiled edge is perfect for those who hate their sideburns. Asking the barber to mark a small profile with the razor is great because it removes bad hairs without sacrificing too much hair.

Use Shaved Pins

A disheveled man bun brings a very bohemian and summery air. If you go for surf wave looks you will want to ruffle your bun to the fullest. Use textured powder by the roots, tie your rubber with little tension and do not forget to leave some loose wicks to finish your casual style.

Disheveled Bun

The man bun with an undercut is an option for those who have “too much” hair. If you like to create visual contrast you can shave the bottom of your mane. It is cool for those who complain about having “too much hair” but do not forget that removing 50% of your hair, can leave you with a strange look when it comes to wearing loose hair, especially if you have thin/poor hair.

With An Undercut

For a formal finish you can make a repeated man bun. For special occasions, creating your bun with enough tension in the rubber and the rest of the crushed/repelled hair is a total success. Catch the rebellious hairs and finish your look with paste (for a matte finish) or wax (for a glossy finish).

Tips For Making Your Man-Bun

Making a man bun is easy. You bounce back to the height you like (or as far as your hair goes well) you put your rubber as if you were going to make a ponytail, and on the last lap, you catch the hair inside creating your bun.

That said, perfecting your man bun and leaving it exactly as you like it takes a little practice. Here are some tips to perfect your style:

Never make your bun with wet hair. When you have wet hair, it is at its most delicate time and you run the risk of breaking it when you apply tension with the rubber.

Always use rubber that does not break your hair. The rubber with pieces of metal seams or made of hard material. They are not worth it. Get some seamless black jelly beans for special occasions, a pack of pop bands.

If you lack hair, use accessories. Sometimes you don’t have enough hair to hook all the hairs inside the rubber well. Get some hairpins to catch rebel tufts discreetly or a headband so you don’t go crazy with the hairs that escape throughout the day.

A man bun is better with dirty hair. When your hair is not clean, you have a better grip to create your bun. A little bit of accumulated fat helps you manage your hair and create a bun with fewer unruly hairs.

Use ointment, wax or paste after making the bun. The means/ends of the hair do not like this type of product but if you apply them on the hair that is between the forehead and the bun, you can soften unruly hair and/or add shine.
