Men Are Creatively Weaving Their Hair to Transform Man Buns into “Man Braids”

Posted on Fashion 1 Comment 326

Man buns have long dominated as a popular hair trend for guys, but this style is now evolving into something with a little more finesse. Known as man braids, these intricate hairdos feature long locks that are layered and twisted into fashionable designs that span the top of men’s heads and down their backs.

Like any hair style, the way a guy wears his braids is all based on personal taste. Some men prefer a traditional French braid that tapers into a tasteful pony tail. Others take an avant-garde approach and pair sections of tiny twists with perfectly-coiffed poufs. The endless possibilities of man braids makes them appropriate for special occasions or everyday wear.

The Instagram hashtag #manbraids proves that they aren’t just for women anymore—check out some of our favorites, below.
