OK - so it's not only the little 'bun' thing I hate but the way that the hair's pulled back in order to style aforementioned bun is also really unattractive!!

Am I too set in my ways /conservative re hair dos? (notice no apostrophe)

Terrible fad. I can't wait for all this excess hair fashion to just fuck right off.

Should it not be "does", as in "hair does" ?

I like them on a man who actually has long hair. It's when they've scraped about an inch of hair into one by shaving off all the surrounding hair that I don't like.

Its like they've never heard of Aunt Flo or Little My.

Some men pull it off really well

Some don't...and then they look stupid

it's great on the right person...guy at work had all the young things skipping heatbeats ....he was Spanish though! I could see the attraction.

it's like pony tails....Ross Poldark, and a frock coat....OhYesPlease.
Francis Rossi and double denim...no, just NO!

I hate the name. As if men would feel insecure putting their hair into a lump on top of their head if it didn't have "man" in the title. God forbid they'd have the same hairstyle as a woman.

I can make an exception for Brock O'Hurn.

Drool!

I love them!

I actually saw a man yesterday with hair so wacky I had to take a double look

He was bald. Completely and utterly bald. From the front anyway

At the back of his head, right in the middle was a very thin braid down the bottom of his neck.

It looked awful

The only man buns I've seen have been at the back not the top and they look fine. The ones on the top with the donut insert look ridiculous, whether on men or women.

I've never heard of Little My so now need to google him/her/them/whoever.

Do you mean the 'bin bag' look?

RiverTam Thu 08-Sep-16 13:59:45

Grim. Even on the beauteous Aidan Turner, who seems to have a penchant for them.

They're the man-bob of the day. When I discovered that DH had had a man-bob when he was a student I was deeply upset, I'm surprised we stayed together, tbh.

Lurking husband, the plural of hairdo is hairdos. Are you trying to wind us up?

Hariasa Thu 08-Sep-16 14:02:28

This is the second thread we've had about men's hair in a few days.

Why shouldn't they wear a bun (or as in the other thread die their hair)?

It will suit some better than others but then not all women suit their hair in a bun either...

As long as it's clean why would you care?

TheHubblesWindscreenWipers Thu 08-Sep-16 14:03:07

I'm really hoping we've reached Peak Beard and that men are going to start shaving and trimming again.
beards and moustaches are a (perhaps irrational) pet hate of mine

in AIBU grin

seems my sense that "hairdos" looked wrong is ... well wrong smile

I don't know, why do people now consider the mullet to be a horrible hair trend? Or shell suits in fashion? Or why disco music is now 'cheesy'. Sometimes you can just see a 'trend' being looked back on as awful, even whilst it happens.

As with the mullet, I think it looks silly. I think the same of women who wear a 'top of head' high bun, they look like Nanny Plum. I'm a judgmental cow-bag, I know.

"Am I too set in my ways /conservative re hair dos?"

Yes, you are. Like them or not, and I agree that they are just "buns" no "man" needed, it's nice to see men experimenting a bit with their looks and exploring styles that are traditionally for women.

I hate them! DT1, is growing his hair so he can have one. It's his hair and his choice, but I think (in the main) they look daft

freetrampolineforall Thu 08-Sep-16 14:28:40

They look stupid. As do beards on young men unless they have a religious reason for having one. That's not how you prove your manhood. Nor do man buns. YOU JUST LOOK STUPID. (and relax)

HerBigChance Thu 08-Sep-16 14:28:58

I just think 1990s drug dealer hair when I see them. And yes, of course men can experiment with their hair, but I still think the buns look naff.

I like them on a man who actually has long hair. It's when they've scraped about an inch of hair into one by shaving off all the surrounding hair that I don't like.

See, I think that must look really, really silly when it's out of its hairband, like a drizzle of hair on top of the head.
