Opinion: Don’t fake it ’til you make it

By: Jessica Kaiser

Messy bun tutorials are no longer for just women, as men have hopped on the up-do craze with “man buns.”

Ever since Brock O’Hurn posted the Instagram video of him just simply putting his hair up in a bun, the trend has gone viral.

According to Hollywood.com, the top five celebrity man buns are Jared Leto, Harry Styles, David Beckham, Jake Gyllenhaal and taking the number one spot is Chris Hemsworth. These men dedicated themselves to growing their hair out just to join this hair trend.

But, wait, there’s more. Now you can get your very own man bun without having to grow out your luscious locks.

The clip on man bun is now available. You can purchase them from almost anywhere on the internet including eBay. This lovely accessory comes in all hair colors including blonde, brown, black and the ever-so-trendy, gray. If that’s not enough, they even make them with real human hair. Yes, you read that right. Real human hair.

I personally believe that these clip on man buns are ridiculous. There is a very small pool of men that can pull off this hairstyle.

Pictures online showcasing these products are absurd. The men modeling the clip on man buns often have short hair and look odd with a clearly fake bun on top of their heads.

I can’t see this product actually being used because if guys really wanted a man bun that bad, they would grow out their hair. It’s that simple.

This business idea was a horrible one, and I will not be surprised when I hear that the business is going down the drain.

But, if you’re a man that’s craving a bun, go for it.
