Welcome back to the Man Buns & Manes blog and today we’ll be showcasing 5 interesting man bun braid styles from our founder Thomas In Action.
Thomas says he’s been really inspired lately by a lot of the man bun braid styles he’s been seeing in our Facebook group of late and has decided to create some of his own.
If braiding is something that’s out of your current skill set, you need not worry. Thomas has made an excellent man bun braid tutorial that can easily teach you the fundamentals. Let’s take a closer look at these man bun braid styles shall we?
The Double Side Braided Man Bun
The Double Side Braided Man Bun is another interesting yet simple man bun braid style. Like the The Low Side Braid Man Bun, the braids on this hairstyle also finish just behind the ear before transitioning into a plat. To add more detail to the hairstyle, Thomas wrapped each plat around the bun for an intricate finish.
The Hairline Man Bun Braid
Insecure about your hairline? This man bun braid style is the one for you. If you are familiar with Thomas’ content on YouTube, you’ll know he pokes a bit of fun at his own crooked hairline. When Thomas created this hairstyle he wanted to create a style that had an interesting look but could also serve a purpose.
Don’t get us wrong, hiding your flaws due to shame isn’t something we want to promote, however, it pays to have options!
The Hairline Man Bun Braid is one of the more intricate man bun braid styles that Thomas has come up with and takes a lot of practice as the braiding technique used to create this hairstyle is what you would call “inverted”. This means instead of braiding from your hairline backwards, you need braid it the other way around which makes this man bun style a little more difficult to pull off.
The Tri Braid Man Bun
The Tri Braid Man Bun is an interesting look that features 2 braids on each side of the head and one braid on the top of the head. The unique thing about this man bun braid style is the braids are only joined to the head until they reach the back of the ear before transitioning into a plat. This creates an interesting effect in the actual bun when it’s secured by intertwining the plats and the regular hair together.
The Low Side Braid Man Bun
The Low side braid man bun is a combination of a lowered man bun with a double braid on one side of the head and a singular braid on the other. Sleek in style, the man bun braid can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and is fairly straightforward to pull off once you know how to braid your own hair.
The Top Braid Man Bun
Simple but interesting, The Top Braid Man Bun consists of one singular braid on the top of the head accompanied with a full man bun. Depending on how detailed the braid is, this man bun braid style is quite subtle and adds subtle character.
And that wraps up Thomas’ 5 man bun braid styles. Just recap, we covered:
- The Low Side Braid Man Bun
- The Tri Braid Man Bun
- The Top Braid Man Bun
- The Double Side Braided Man Bun
- The Hairline Man Bun Braid
