It is 2015. We like big buns and we simply cannot lie. That is … big man buns. The messy, gruff look of the man bun has become wildly popular, as women swoon and men groom their locks to achieve that immaculately tousled up-do. Instagram has quickly become filled with countless fan pages documenting the man bun and all of its glory.
Yet, perhaps the man bun is representative of something much larger than a growing trend in the world of men’s hair and fashion. Ultimately, the man bun identifies an increased concern for male’s fashion as a whole. The public is yearning for more attention to be paid the world of men’s fashion, and consumers will quickly be satisfied.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America has announced the launch of New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Following suit after the men’s Paris Fashion Week, the show will be held from July 13 to July 16 this year. Names like Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors and Rag & Bone will be featured in New York Fashion Week: Men’s to launch their spring 2016 line. It appears as if the man bun, as well as men’s fashion is not only growing, but here to stay.
