Historically, the man bun has been a warrior’s hairstyle worn by generals and samurais. The long hair worn in a high or low bun cuts a striking figure, so much that it is the hairstyle choice of Buddha himself.

So the man bun was a trend long before it was adopted by a multitude of male celebrities. The alternative hairstyle could get a bad wrap because it can be a greasy, scraggly mess.
