'THE HAIRSTYLE, I SWEAR I MEAN THE HAIRSTYLE!' (said Nicki Minaj, never)
Anonymous UBC Confessions contributor, I commend you. I've been seeing this everywhere, and the first couple of times I thought, 'well, unique is interesting, I guess.'
Then I saw it again... and again a week later, until now I've been seeing it almost every day during my wanders on campus. So I figured, what are the opinions on this one? Is this going to be as big as the parade of Hunter boots around campus for the sheer functionality of it? I mean, if you can avoid getting your hair cut for months on end, as you commit to a hip new look, that's a win-win situation, right? (Haircut costs made up in elastics lost all over the place, don't say I didn't warn you.)
I was walking with a wonderfully sassy friend of mine and spotted one of these fabulous looks, and interrupted the flow of conversation to ask, with perfect subtlety and absolute discretion, with a nod in his direction,
"So, what do you think of man buns?"
WELL, I got about a million and a half sidelong glances from everyone in earshot for that one (GUYS I SWEAR IT WAS IN CONTEXT, PLEASE BELIEVE ME, I CAN'T HELP MY LOUD VOICE). Gold star for me, my life is actually a game of how many times I can be on
My friend never did answer me on that one, she was too busy laughing. Really though, these man buns are all over the place, even Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is rejecting that fantastical flow..
for something much more fun (hair in the eyes, please, he's above that).
The man bun, or the mun, or whatever you feel like calling it, may have shown up a while ago (and been somewhat pioneered by Hollywood in general) but I'm thanking all of you lovely UBC students who rock this one everywhere. I'm not taking credit for the compliment, but I'm definitely a fan.

About Me: My major is Integrated Sciences; I'm integrating physiology and psychology, and completing a minor in kinesiology. The movie 'The Imitation Game' blew my mind, and every piece done by the artist Alex Cherry is spectacular. Also, if you look up the definition of a bookworm, you'll find me.
Integrating Physiology and Neuroscience!
I like hanging out at Tower Beach but you can usually find me studying at Ponderosa even though I don't live there.
