First Chair author Lauren Salapetek writes:

According to Vaughn Acord, celebrity stylist to the stars, ““the man-bun” is a real statement maker; it oozes confidence and shows character. But, don’t confuse it with a ponytail – the man-bun is definitely manlier; think samurai. It also frames the face, allowing chiseled features to stand out. And, it is best paired with a beard.”

Here are Vaughn’s tips on how to style the man-bun:

STEP 1: Start off on damp hair. Rub a wax through hair from root to tips that will create separation and definition to hair so when it is pulled back, it is not completely slick. Try: V76 by Vaughn V-Rated Wax.

STEP 2: Next, using your hands, loosely pull hair back above the nape of the neck.

STEP 3: Secure with an elastic pony holder, looping hair through, making it appear as effortless as possible.

STEP 4: You can either wear it completely slick back or leave it as is, but for a slicked look, apply a grooming cream to get rid of any flyaways.
