Trending: Groupon’s Clip-In Man Buns

Mock if you will, but I love a great man bun on a hot and scruffy guy. A sexy man is even sexier with great hair. Hipsters in Brooklyn made it a thing and leading men like Jared Leto and Charlie Hunnam gave the look the jump to Hollywood. Now it has reached the masses. Groupon, the coupon site, is now selling clip-on man buns, “for the man who wears many hats but no buns.” Hmmmm. Is this for real? Or perhaps an inside joke? The accompanying marketing copy on the site recommends to “put it on when you smell fair-trade coffee” and take it off “ when someone utters the word bro.” It’s a bit early for an April Fool’s gag but it seems that Groupon will have the last laugh on this new trend. Over ten thousand have already been purchased. To see more of this—ahem—interesting look, click through to style notes.  –– Michelle Rotbart
