The Man Bun

The Man Bun. Some people love them. Many people hate them. I wear one. My dad hates it. There are plenty of different man bun styles. The full-bun and the semi-bun. I wear mine as a top knot. My dad still hates it. But my daughters like it. And that matters more to me right now.

The twins were born Feb. 21, 2016. Two-days before that I got my haircut. That’s when I decided to grow my hair out. I remember when I was younger my sister had fun messing with my dad’s hair. Up until that point, I’d always worn my hair short. And I liked it short!

But I thought it was time for a change. And I thought the girls would have fun with it. And they have.

But now my man bun is more of a statement.

Many people hate man buns. Why some people let how other people wear their hair bother them is beyond me. But they do. And they let me hear about it.

I tell them it’s my stand against the man. That the man wants me to have short hair. That the man hates man buns. So it’s my stand against the man. Whoever the man is, lol.

Not everybody can wear a man bun. It takes at least six inches of hair on top for a top knot. That takes time to grow.

Plus, if I don’t like my long hair anymore, I can just cut it off. But if I don’t like my short hair, I’m not about to sport a wig, lol.

But the real reason I wear a man bun is because I like it.
