August Alsina

Singer August Alsina is the latest hip hop artist to rock a man bun. Chris Brown sported the look in a recent social media post. But he did it to criticize black women for wearing hair weave.

The man bun has been around for decades. But the style really took off after actor Colin Farrell started wearing his hair in a slicked back mini bun last year.

There is even a Tumblr page dedicated to men who wear hair buns or Bantu knots.

And if your man or son needs a guide to show them the best way to pin their hair up in a bun, they can visit this blog.

Whether you think a man bun is sexy or silly, wearing a man bun is a personal decision between a man and his hair.

Some people can’t tolerate today’s men going against the status quo. Some vigilantes in London are reportedly going around chopping off man buns with scissors.

Then there’s the ongoing debate over whether designer Marc Jacobs invented the Bantu knots.
