Tap into the man bun life with these easy tutorials.

You’re a dude who beats to his own drum with some awesome long-ish hair to boot. But you’ve started to realize that day-to-day hair maintenance is no joke. From your new washing routine to brushing your hair, you might even be starting to feel the pain us ladies have been enduring for years! We’ll let you in a little secret/not-so secret: You can put your hair up into a man bun as another option to style your hair. This look can be worn for the office, a casual weekend or when you play sports. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve had several unsuccessful attempts, we’ve got you covered in your path to creating the perfect man bun. Read to learn more about how to do a man bun in three stylish ways.

Look 1: How to Man Bun

Step 1: Use dry shampoo.

Yup! You read that right, guys are all about using dry shampoo on their hair. It helps soak up all of the grease and excess oil in the hair leaving your hair feeling refreshed and ready to style. Hold some of the Dove Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo six-inches away from your roots as you spray the product on your hair. Use your fingers to spread the product through out your head. After this, use a brush to detangle your hair.

Step 2: Use a blowdryer to create a pinch of volume.

With the concentration nozzle attached, use a blowdryer to give your hair and roots a quick blast to create a bit of volume to your hair.

Step 3. Brush hair upwards to create a smooth high ponytail.

Apply some of Dove Men + Care Defining Pomade onto the base of your hair to create a smooth base and to tame cowlicks. Use your brush to smooth hair up into a high ponytail. Try to position your man pony at eye-level, this is a great technique to use when trying to determine which height is best for you. Secure your ponytail with a hair elastic.

Step 4: Wrap hair ends [neatly] into a bun.

The goal of the modern man bun is to have a bun that’s neat, controlled, and handsome. Brush the ends of your hair to smoothen, then twist the length of your hair. Roll your coiled ends into a bun right around your hair elastic.

Step 5: Use hairpins to lock your modern man bun in place.

Again, you read this right! Get some hairpins and tuck it in! You’ll thank us later. You know why? Because you won’t have to worry about re-doing your man bun again throughout the day since you sealed the deal with this handy hair styling tool.

Apply product.

Work a finger-tip amount of the product throughout the lengths of your hair.

Brush hair to smoothen and detangle, then brush in the direction you want your bun to go. In this case, brush your hair into a low ponytail.

4

Twist your hair.

Twist the sides of your hair flat, then hold the ends of your hair and twist it around your fingers until it coils.

Step 1: Brush your hair.

Skip the morning shower—you’re wearing an updo, all is forgiven—and just reach for that flat brush. Remove all tangles with some well-meaning brush strokes from roots to ends. Time: 30 seconds.

Step 2: Apply some pomade.

Providing your hair isn’t limp from buildup from the day before, you’ll definitely benefit from a styling product to keep that look polished and frizz-free. Apply a finger-swipe of non-greasy pomade—we like Axe Signature Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade—evenly onto palms. (Tip: Rubbing your palms warms it up for a smoother application.) Spread evenly from hairline to ends. Time: 1 minute.

Step 3: Refine with a comb.

Give your strands a quick pass with a fine-toothed comb just to make sure your product is evenly distributed. Get your hair tie on the ready. Time: 30 seconds.

Step 4: Tie it up.

Short to medium hair: Gather hair up into a ponytail, and with a free hand, keep looping your elastic around the ponytail until it’s tight enough to be left as a knot. The ends are to be left tucked into the elastic for the final look.

Medium to long hair: Gather your hair up into a ponytail, then twist hair tightly to resemble a rope. Coil the rope around itself, forming a bulb or knob. Tie the elastic around the base of the knob, maybe twice or thrice, to secure. You’re done! Time: 1 minute.

You’ve mastered this man bun tutorial! Now, get inspired by these really cool long hairstyles for men!

How to Do a Man Bun

Get your hair off your neck and create an amazing man bun.

You’re a dude who beats to his own drum with some awesome long-ish hair to boot. But you’re starting to realize that maintenance is no joke. From your new washing routine to brushing your hair, you might even be starting to feel the pain us ladies have been enduring for years! We’ll let you in a little secret/not-so secret: You can put your hair up in a man bun as another option to style your hair. This look can be worn for the office, a casual weekend or when you play sports. Plus, the ladies will love it! Trust us. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve had several unsuccessful attempts, we’ve got you covered in your path to creating the perfect man bun. Read to learn more about how to do a man bun as you seriously rock your killer style:

Creating a Man Bun

The modern man bun.

Step 1: Wash your strands.

Some dudes love their man buns so much that they wear them for days on end. And after you create your look, you may just become a member of the #nowash club. Start things off fresh by washing and conditioning your long mane. Try Axe White Label Night 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner whose formula can clean your hair as it provides your scalp with an invigorating feeling.

Step 2: Brush your hair.

Most man buns are renowned for their slick-back crown. To start this look, you’ll need to brush your hair, which will also get out any tangles or knots that you may have lurking about.

Step 3: Add in some hair product.

You don’t need much product to create this look. Some serum or a little molding wax like the Bed Head for Men by TIGI Matte Separation Workable Wax to tame frizz and flyways (you know: those annoying, wispy bits of hair around your crown). Make sure you coat the product throughout your hair for an even and concentrated distribution.

Step 4: Pull your hair back.

Hold your hair with both hands as you smooth the strands along the crown. Pull the hair back, using a ponytail or hair elastic as you create a ponytail. The second time around your pony meets, fold your hair underneath your pony and in half. Some guys also like to leave some hair out and have a messier look underneath the bun with a more controlled look on top.

Step 5: Vary the length.

The length really depends on your preferences and style. We’ve seen man buns go really high and low. Whatever length you pick, be ready to be the turn heads wherever you go.

Are you ready to give the man bun a go?

How to do a man bun 3 ways: Your ultimate guide

Thanks to A-listers, new-wave models and Instagram stars, the man bun has come a long way since its hipster heyday. Once regarded as the hairstyle of choice for free-spirited creatives, the ‘mun’, as we know it today, is now widely accepted, and very much coveted, among all men. Whether it be on the street, the runway, the red carpet or Tumblr, you’re sure to spot the bro bun alongside some of the most popular haircuts today. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have hair that rivals Lord of the Rings‘ Legolas. And the best part? They’re not complicated to do at all. Whatever your hair length, find out how to do a man bun with our detailed step-by-step guides below.

How to do a man bun: 3 Ways

 

The classic man bun.

1. The simple man bun

Inspired by: Zayn Malik, Kit Harrington, Leonardo DiCaprio

Perfect for: shorter to medium length hair

This easy man bun is perfect if you have chin-length hair, which is just long enough to pull into a ponytail. Have an undercut, but your hair is a little longer on top like Zayn Malik? The man bun is still achievable. Find out how to make it work for you below.

Step 1: Begin by choosing a styling cream to help keep your hair in place. Opt for a flexible formula like the VO5 Texture Rework Putty (£3.99*). Try to avoid firm hold styling products as they’ll look too heavy and unnatural.

Step 2: Take a small amount of product, roughly the size of a 10-pence piece, and work it evenly through your hair, going from root to tip.

Step 3: Use a wide-tooth comb to sweep hair back. Then smooth it backwards with your hands, pulling the hair into a ponytail. Tip: finding out the right ‘degree’ for your man bun will make things easier. So, if you have medium hair, the bun should sit around the midpoint of your crown, rather than at the top.

Step 4: Wrap your hairband around the ponytail a couple of times, then on the final wrap, pull only half of the ponytail through to create a small loop. Note: don’t worry if some hairs are too short to be looped into the hairband, strayed strands add to the casual overall look.

The messy bun.

2. The messy bun

Inspired by: Brock O’Hurn, Chris Hemsworth, Jared Leto

Perfect for: medium to long hair

Want that casual, cool look with a touch of boho charm, championed by the likes of Jared Leto and Joaquin Phoenix? The messy bun is the epitome of effortlessness. Note that for this type of bun you’ll need a little more hair (at least shoulder-length or longer).

Step 1: Brush your hair to remove any small knots or tangles.

Step 2: Lightly mist your hair at the roots using Toni&Guy Casual Flexible Hold Hairspray (£7.49*). Its lightweight formula is ideal for holding understated styles like the man bun, while still allowing some movement.

Step 3: Roughly smooth the hair back with your hands, pulling the hair into a ponytail at the midpoint of your head.

Step 4: Twist the whole ponytail in your hand and loosely wrap it around itself to create your bun. Once you’ve twisted and wrapped all of the hair, secure with a hairband.

Step 5: Finish by using your fingers to comb through your hair to tidy. Again, don’t worry if your hair has a few bumps and lumps, a little mess is part of the charm.

The half-up man bun.

3. The half-up bun

Inspired by: Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal

Perfect for: on-the-fence guys with medium to long hair

Not sure if you want to put your hair up or down? Good news: now you can do both. The half-up bun is the best of both worlds and works well on medium-length to long hair.

Step 1: Divide your hair into two parts. Lightly finger comb and smooth the top section, pulling the hair towards the midpoint of the head to form a ponytail.

Step 2: Wrap your hairband around the ponytail a couple of times. On the final wrap, pull half the ponytail through the hairband to create a small loop.

Step 3: Mist the bottom half of your hair with the Toni&Guy Mens Messy Salt Spray (£7.49*), aiming the spray towards the ends of the strands, and scrunch the product into the hair for a textured look.

Look 1: The signature man bun

Whether it be on the street, the runway, the red carpet or Instagram, you’re sure to spot the man bun alongside some of the most popular haircuts today. So, let’s get down to business and learn how to do a man bun, shall we?

2

Scoop a small amount of product.

Now that you’ve prepared your hair, it’s time to apply your second product. Scoop up a small amount of the Toni&Guy Men’s Workable Matte Paste roughly a fingertip’s worth.

Remember to use this product sparingly: a little bit of it will go a long way, and you can always add more if needed.

3

Apply the product.

Warm the product between your palms, evenly coating your hands and fingertips. Once you’ve spread the texturising gum across your hands, rake the product through your hair, concentrating on the mid-lengths and ends.

Tip: Don’t forget to open your fingers as you work it through your mane to distribute the product and aid control.

4

Gather your hair.

Now you’ve applied your product, it’s time to learn how to tie a man bun. Loosely gather your hair into a ponytail, roughly at the middle of your crown, and get your hair band ready to secure it.

5

Tie your hair.

Wrap your hairband around your ponytail a couple of times to secure. Then, on your last wrap, pull the ponytail only half way through to create a loop, with the ends of your hair facing down towards the back of your head.

Don’t worry about these loose ends, they add to the overall undone coolness of this hairstyle.

6

Final look.

Congratulations, you’ve mastered how to tie a man bun! If necessary, gently tweak the size and position of your ‘do to create a fuller effect.

Look 2: Half-up man bun tutorial

Now you’ve got the basics down, it’s time to introduce you to the man bun’s cooler sibling: the half-up, half-down top knot. It has been spotted on Sean Frank and Louis Smith, and is the best way to keep hair away from your face but still show off your lengthy locks.

1

Prep your hair:

When rocking a top knot, you’ll want your hair to appear voluminous and thick, as opposed to thin and flat!

So, start by washing your hair with a volume-boosting shampoo and conditioner, like the TIGI Bed Head Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, before letting your hair air-dry naturally.

2

Section your hair.

Now it’s time to create your half-up top knot. Simply section your hair in half horizontally, starting from around eyebrow height.

3

Create a ponytail.

Next gather the hair that you sectioned in step 2 into a ponytail, and secure it with a hairband. Then, twist your ponytail, as this will make it easier to fashion into a top knot in the next step!

4

Create your half-up top knot.

Now wrap your twisted hair around the base of your ponytail, until you’ve formed a neat top knot shape, securing it in place with some bobby pins.

If you have curly or wavy hair, use a small amount of the VO5 Casual Control Extreme Style Fluff Tamer, to smooth down any flyaways.

5

Final look:

And just like that, you’ve mastered the half-up top knot! See how easy that was? Now you can rock your new ‘do morning, noon, and night.

Look 3: Messy man bun tutorial

Even though we’re over halfway through the year, the man bun is still topping the men’s style board. However, if you’re looking for something a little more casual and low-key, then why not opt for a messy, low bun, instead?

Creating messy bun hairstyles may seem like a no-brainer, but there are actually some tricks and tools to the trade to get the look down pat. This disheveled lived-in look has masses of texture and looks extremely cool.

1

Prepare your hair.

Wash your hair with the Dove Daily Moisture 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner, then allow to air dry or use a hairdryer so that your strands are at least 90% dry before you start.

You want to keep some texture to your hair to give it that second-day look, so we suggest finger combing through your mane.

2

Create a low ponytail.

Next, smooth your hair back and gather into a low ponytail, towards the nape of your neck, or whererver feels most comfortable.

Make sure you get every strand and double check in a mirror to see if there are any remaining flyaways.

3

Create a loop.

When securing your ponytail, the last time you go to pull your hair through the hairband, leave it looped halfway through.

Take your time here as this step will form the basis of your messy bun.

4

Use hair pins.

Want to know why your man bun never stays put throughout the day? You’re not using hair pins!

These little styling tools are your new friend, so simply insert hair pins around the base of the bun to keep it in place.

 

Look 4: Twisted man bun how-to

Looking to add a little interest to your man bun hairstyle? Then why not try this twisted man bun style to take your look from ordinary to extraordinary?

With this twisted man bun style, you can turn your basic man bun into a cooler updo that’s suitable for any occasion.

1

Prep your hair.:

Before creating your twisted low man bun, make sure you’ve prepped your hair by washing it with the TIGI Bed Head Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner. This will help your hair look fuller and thicker – the perfect base with which to create your man bun hairstyle!

 

 

3

Brush your hair.

Create a side parting, then brush your hair with a natural bristle brush, which will help smooth your hair and further work in the product.

 

4

Twist your hair and create a low ponytail.

Divide your hair into 2 halves and, working on one section at a time, start twisting each section of hair from your ear back towards the nape of the neck.
When you reach the middle, combine the 2 sections and tie into a low ponytail.

 

5

Create your bun.

Twist the tail of your pony, before wrapping it around its base. Once you’ve formed a bun shape, secure it discreetly with a bobby pin.

6

The Final look.

And there you have it: a simple yet effective twisted man bun hairstyle!

Easy Ways to Get this Look

This look has some serious staying power.

If you’ve been thinking about growing a man bun, you’ve probably already seen this style in men’s magazines, on your favorite actor or on the barista at your corner coffee shop. The basics of a man bun first, yes, involve growing your hair out, and from there you’ll need to master some styling tips in order to make the style more trendy than unkempt. Believe it or not, mastering the best way to keep your long hair out of your eyes is about more than just tossing your hair up!

If you’re ready, read on to learn more about how to grow a man bun and be prepared to change your just-rolled-out-of-bed game forever:



How to Grow a Man Bun



Man bun hair is a cool way to style your long hair.

1. Length is necessary.

First things first, to create the ultimate man bun you’re going to need medium length to long hair. Not all men can deal with that process since growing hair out can take a lot of time and be tedious but with some patience, you’ll get there. 10 to 12 inches is a good length to aim for to achieve a decent sized bun. Use a daily shampoo and conditioner, like Dove Men+Care Fresh & Clean Fortifying 2 in 1 Shampoo+Conditioner, to keep your hair fresh and clean throughout the hair growth process. Once your hair has grown to the appropriate length, you’re ready to create the perfect man bun style for your face type.

2. Consider the styles.

The traditional man bun style usually features a top knot look. It’s a kind of messy style that features a bun that’s widely looped with an elastic band. The man bun can be worn high on top of the head or low at the nape in a semi bun. Make sure not to pull the hair too much as you create the style as this can lead to hair loss and split ends.

Shaved sides with hair on just the crown, also known as the undercut bun, is another cool way to wear your man bun. It’s a trendier and more bohemian way to wear your new style. Another style that’s recently caught our eye is the man braid. This weaving style allows your hair to get out of your face while infusing some style into a vanilla bun. It’s a great look for that in-between stage or for those with medium-length hair.

3. What you’ll need.

It’s time to rethink the kind of products you usually use for shorter hair and upgrade your stash to include products meant for longer strands. A gel, like AXE Spiked-Up Look: Extreme Hold Gel, and a pomade, like Bed Head for Men by TIGI Slick Trick Firm Hold Pomade, are both great hair care products to help keep your man bun in place.

This is especially ideal if you’re wearing your man bun in a professional setting.  Even if you are going for the “messy” look, these products will streamline your overall ‘do and keep it office-friendly.

Rubber bands are a definite no when it comes to securing your bun. Instead, opt for elastic bands or fabric hair ties that won’t pull hair out or knot up your strands. Note that fabric and elastic headbands are a good way to keep locks out of your face when working out or washing your face.

The man bun 2.0: How to do a messy, low bun

Even though we’re over halfway through the year, the man bun is still topping the stylish men’s hairstyle board. Hardly a surprise seeing as it’s been donned by A-list stars such as Brad Pitt, Harry Styles and, most recently, Matt Damon! So, it seems that the man bun really is here to stay.

However, if you’re looking for something a little more casual and low-key than the traditional ‘mun’, then why not opt for a messy, low bun, instead? It’s super easy to do, plus it’s got those effortless, laid-back vibes down to a T. So, you in?

Read on for our step-by-step guide on how to create a perfectly undone man bun.

The man bun 2.o: A step-by-step guide

 

Note that you’ll need medium to long hair to pull off this look, so if your hair is super short, then come back in a few months!

Start with clean hair.

This hairstyle works best with clean hair, so make sure you’ve washed your mane and let it air-dry before you create your ‘mun’.

And since the man bun always looks better full and thick, so if you have thin hair, use TIGI Bed Head 4 Men Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, as this will help to create the appearance of fuller-looking locks!

Create a ponytail.

Brush your hair to remove any tangles or knots, and gather it back into a low ponytail that sits about 2 inches above the nape of your neck.

Create a loop.

When securing your ponytail, the last time you go to pull your hair through the hairband, leave it looped halfway through. This will form the basis of your messy bun.

Cover the hairband and secure.

Using your fingers, lightly tug at the loop you created in step 3 to make it appear more messy and undone.

Then, take a small section of hair (approximately an inch wide) from your ponytail and wrap it loosely around the top of the hairband to cover it. Secure this piece of hair in place with a bobby pin.

Secure your style.

To help keep your bun in place and to smooth down any frizz, spray some Toni&Guy Creative Style Spray Wax onto it. Then, spritz more product into the palms of your hands and gently smooth them over the top of your head to help tame flyaways.

The final look.

And there you have it: a messy, low man bun done in record speed! Now, go forth and flaunt the man bun 2.0!
