Man buns : yum yum yum.

Man-buns are simultaneously controversial and appealing at the same time. They are the essence of a gender subversion and are a little bit arrogant – which I like. When a man puts his hair into a bun and walks through the streets of Cape Town, he declares to the world that “Yes, I am comfortable in my masculinity”. He doesn’t give a rats ass what you think and he’s backing himself — to me that is the most attractive thing of all.

A reappropriation of the hard semi-androgyny of a ballet dancer’s hair and the messy ‘dos of a fashion runway, an iconoclastic moment of genderfuck, it’s a style choice that is both high- and low-maintenance at once.
