Man buns. Why?

Mr C and I had the dubious pleasure of a short run in with a supposed 'Gallic charmer' at the weekend's concert.

He came over to request (none too politely) that Mr C put his video camera away (this was before the concert had even begun).

This specimen of humanity had an accent, designer stubble and a man bun.

Frankly, he looked a freaking mess!

I have nothing against men with long hair. In fact, quite the opposite. But I like it neatly long. A man with a pony tail, now you're talking. Or Jared Leto in his man braid days...mmm. One of our friends has grown his hair so long he can sit on the end of the braid when it's finished, never mind how long it is when it's unbraided.

But a man bun is neither long nor short, and it's not tidy either. If your hair is shoulder bob length, wear it down until it can go into a proper queue. Then, by all means come and find me. Until then, gel it into place so that it at least LOOKS tidy for work.

Please. Because my eyes are hurting looking at your excuse for a hairstyle.

And I was expecting a post about man BUNS.
Needless to say, I was disappointed. LOL

No, hair buns. Not buns buns. And yes, a man bun is apparently what passes for a hairstyle among the young men these days. Your friendly neighborhood librarian would be most upset.

I think I'll wait for the bun buns, thank you. emoticon :winking:

I was thinking along the lines of CoralLevang I was expecting a post concerning a point lower on the male anatomy. The idea of a man wearing his hair in a bun on top of his head kind of gives me an upset stomach.

I'm with CoralLevang . Wasn't expecting a discussion about hair styles. (O.o)

Same here. That's why I'd rather have been writing about buns buns, but never mind. Just have to disappoint cmoneyspinner and CoralLevang for now. Maybe once I've had a few glasses of wine tonight, who knows?
