Man Bun · /man bən/ · Noun

An adult human male who eschews gender-specific hairstyles by curling their locks into a tight coil at the back of their head, unironically.

Believe it or not, it’s a thing. A thing that once upon a time only popped up in Brooklyn beer taverns and hipster-chic Manhattan coffee shops, but now has taken off.

The trend has made its way to Hollywood, sweeping up the luscious locks of some of the most desirable leading men in Tinseltown.

Thanks to the likes of Thor hunk Chris Hemsworth, romcom favorite Bradley Cooper, and soccer superstar David Beckham, the male top knot has become more than acceptable — it’s attractive.
