Are man buns already being supplanted by pigtails?


Jared Leto at Golden Globes 2015

I’ve been a big fan of the man bun – looks fabulous on the right kind of man –  but I was just informed by a friend (Linda Corshen) that she spotted men in pigtails (or maybe braids?) at the bus stop in Monticello this week!

So while I cannot claim firsthand sightings, I did a little research and detected a hint of this back in March 2015 in when they wrote:

#ManBunMonday – So what will this trend progress to? Are pigtails or braids next? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, we did see Jared Leto trade in his man bun for a man braid back in January at the Golden Globes. I can also see a confluence of trends that might be behind the emergence of pigtails/braids on men:  70’s fashion trends are ascendant, Snoop Dogg continues to sport braids, Native American themes are in the air, even Willie Nelson seems to be having a moment.
