There are very few iconic hairstyles: Twiggy’s pixie cut. Brigitte Bardot‘s bangs. And, of course, the infamous man bun. I can’t promise the man bun will stand the test of time, and let’s get real: it’s a style created out of convenience, not art, but it’s still popular nonetheless.
Recently, Groupon had a deal for a clip-in version of the man ‘do: for the man who wears many hats, but no bun. Originally valued at $65, you could get one for yourself for only $10! What a steal! It was clearly an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.
We ended up buying all the shades offered except blond, because we didn’t have any blond male co-workers in the office. Let’s just say these hair accents aren’t the best color match, aren’t easy to apply, and don’t look anything like a normal man bun. If you really want to pull off the look, you should use a hairband to wrap up the bun and make it smaller so it doesn’t resemble a hairy yarmulke just chillin’ on your skull.
Check out how the men of POPSUGAR fared when presented with a man bun, and let us know what you think of their final looks!
