man bun

It may not be new, but I have a hunch the man bun is coming back bigger than ever. With so much gender-bending and androgyny already seen on this year’s runway, the man bun is bound to evolve and grow, going from a trend to a staple. The style reinforces the masculinity of long hair for men, and paired with a little or a lot of scruff and a devil-may-care attitude, it’s sure to dominate 2015. So gentlemen, if you have the length but lack direction, click through to style notes for some inspiration. Just don’t forget the beard. –– Michelle Rotbart

In this style the disparate aesthetics of a defined center part and ruffled bed-head feeling surprisingly harmonious. A low ponytail can feel conservative, especially when paired with a neat, even part. But a tousled surface and subtle waves add lived-in sexiness for a more approachable vibe. Learn to create this trending style in the notes. –– Laura Martin

Nothing says romance like a big pile of voluminous hair pinned loosely atop the head. Pair it with a shoulder-baring top, lightly smudged eyes and nude glossy lips for the ultimate come-hither look. This style should look effortless, but attaining lots of volume while keeping texture loose can be a challenge. Learn how to do it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
