The man bun isn't just for hipsters! With the man bun reaching peak popularity, there's never been a better time to get on board the trend - here's how to grow your hair longer in preparation for a man bun.
The Ideal Length For A Man Bun
The first thing you're going to need in order to pull of a man bun is length – but how much is enough? Ideally, bob length hair or longer will give you the best man bun. However if you just want to dabble with a mini man bun, a few inches of length will also work. If you'd prefer to keep your locks on the shorter side while still having the ability to rock a man bun, an undercut is the perfect solution. Ask your stylist to leave the top section longer – that way, it can be tied up into a half man bun.
How To Help Your Hair Grow Faster
Unfortunately, you can't go from short to long hair overnight! However if your mane is in healthy condition, it won't take long to grow your hair to a man bun-ready length. To ensure the hair is in the best possible condition, be sure to have regular trims every six weeks and always wash using both shampoo and conditioner. If your hair is on the thinner side, speak to your hairdresser about a product like L'Oréal Professionnel Serioxyl. This redensifying treatment will help make your mane more voluminous so that it can be styled into the perfect man bun.
