Summary: Some men in Brooklyn — possibly elsewhere, too? — have decided to try to make buns happen.
Representative Quote: "Once you’ve committed to a man bun, how do you create one? Alexander Kellum, 31, a fine-arts painter and yoga teacher who lives in Williamsburg, bends forward and pulls his long chestnut hair in front of him; then he performs a twisting and wrapping motion until his hair is firmly tucked into a knot at the back of his head. Sometimes he’ll let a little hair poke out for an “abstract expressionist” flourish, he said. A rubber band, a hair band or even a piece of string holds his bun in place."
Takeaway: All style-related trends originate in Brooklyn, whether we want to be associated with them or not.
