Given the popularity of the man bun (it was the most searched hair trend on Google in 2015 after all), it was only a matter of time before men expanded their portfolio to include plaited looks.
Men have been wearing cornrows since the dawn of time but the current man braid takes on several different variations. There’s the French braid mohawk with shaved sides that’s every hipster’s dream come true.
There’s a single cornrow worn with blown-out hair.
There’s the man crown braid replete with hair accessories.
And the marriage of the man bun and the man braid (a plait that runs up the back of the hair into a glorious top knot).
Who wants to help out the guys and introduce them to our pancaking braiding technique?
