OUT WITH THE MAN BUN - IN WITH THE MAN BRAID!?

November 8, 2015

 

 

 

Ok ok - so when I first saw the #mbraid - otherwise know as the "man braid" - popping up all over the place my immediate reaction was skeptical - to say the least.  I actually liked the man bun - wait - let's clarify - on the right person with the right kind of hair texture.  Even though it was a look my finer, poker straight hair could not support.  A really loose, textured bun on the right guy looks really cool - but a BRAID?  is that crazy talk?!  

 

Well I decided to give it a try & share the results in the spirit of Movember.  And I got a very mixed response.  As with the bun it's the kind of look that only works in certain scenarios.  When we tried the look I was wearing a pretty dressy "work" outfit consisting of black pants, a button down shirt, and black monkstrap shoes.  And  it just didn't feel right.  Some people liked it but most were pretty unsure.  I slept on it - literally - & wore it to yoga the next morning & the 6 a.m. crew LOVED it.  I showered but kept the braid in & at this point it was pretty loose & textured.  This combined with a more relaxed outfit choice - camo pants, denim shirt, & black military like boots - made the braid feel right.  

 

I'm not quite sure I would wear it on the regular but until I wore my hair back in a pony or braid I kind of didn't realize how much time I spent at hot yoga pushing my hair out of my face.  It really does make a difference.  

 

 

 

I'm all for everyone doing what they want? How do you all feel about the man braid?  Yes, maybe so on the right person or a resounding NO!

 

Cheers - Hal
