2016 Men’s Hairstyle Trend: The Man Braid

Starting with the man-bun, it was only a matter of time before this popular men’s hairstyle transformed into something more creative. With men everywhere sporting a scruffy beard and top-knot, we now have something completely new: the manbraid.

In reality, this surprisingly new trend actually looks kinda cool – if you’re a guy who can pull it off having already put in the hard work of growing out your hair. In fact, #ManBraid is now one of the trendiest men’s hairstyles on Instagram!

So how did this popular men’s hairstyle come to be? Well, during its evolution, it was the comeback of long hair that started it all. And once that long hair started to get annoying, the man bun steamrolled its way in with guys getting tired of having it constantly in their faces. Then, as things progressed, many of these man-bun types started embracing the buzz cut around the sides while leaving the top long. But as any Boise hair salon stylist knows, even the most modern haircuts grow out, leaving you with impossible hair that won’t stay in place. So like their female counterparts, men have finally started turning to the braid with trendsetters and celebrities alike taking their man buns to the next level with intricate braids to fasten their long locks.

In fact, with the internet buzzing it looks like some guys have really gotten the technique down. Gone are the terrible days of cheap buzz cuts and men’s haircuts. Instead of shearing off their glossy locks, many men are starting to enjoy the process of visiting their favorite Boise hair salon to groom them in more creative ways than ever.

While it remains to be seen whether the trend will reach the height of the man bun, one thing is for sure: men aren’t giving up on their long hair, instead they seem ready and eager to experiment with new do’s. While buns are usually quite simple, it’s not always easy to master the perfect braid. At Undone Salon, your Boise hair salon stylist can help you achieve your man bun or man braid goals.
