Man Braids Are The New Man Bun, And We're Still Deciding How We Feel About It

Finally. It's happened.

We never thought this day would come, but the man bun trend finally seems to be waning. Sure, the bun had its day, as every guy and their dad seemed to rock a top knot, but now it's time for those long locks to take a backseat to another hairstyle in town — the man braid. 

Now, let's be clear — braiding one's hair certainly isn't a new trend as men of color have been rocking cornrows, and Native American men have been braiding their hair, since pretty much the dawn of time. But still, the post-man bun braid seems a wee bit different, as it's more focused on the single french braid, right down the middle. Of course, there are many variations to strike your fancy. 

We're still not sure how we feel about the man braid, but we can say we are happy to see men experimenting with their hairstyles as much as women these days. Because, why not?
