Does the “man-bun” appeal to you? Do you think it practical, sexy, or silly, or does it depend on who is wearing?

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.

A Couple Of Notes About The 2013 Golden Globes

As far as award shows go ever since Ricky Gervais took over 4 years a go and now with Amy Poelher and Tina Fey taking over the hosting duties along with the nominations and award winners I feel like even though winning an Oscar has more cache I would a hundred times rather watch the Golden Globes.

The Oscars have just become way too pompous and arrogant as opposed to the more fun Golden Globes.

  • Ben Affleck winning best director for Argo was fantastic as a bitch slap to the Oscar snub even though I’m not particularly a Ben Affleck fan.
  • Jodie Foster came out in her acceptance speech.  Wait, what? This is news?   We didn’t know she was gay like 20 years ago????
  • This morning the television fashion critics awarded Hugh Jackman as best dressed man.  Now I have no idea how you award this category.  Women wear any different type of dress and you could easily critique their  style.  But a Tux on a man is a Tux on a man.  So I guess you give it to the best looking guy wearing a not  screwed-up tux.

There are two categories of Tuxedos.  A Tux, or some crazy variation of a tux where you look like an idiot.

There’s no gray area.
