Man bun undercut has become a trendy hairstyle for so many young guys. This hybrid hairstyle is a blend of the slicked back undercut and regular man bun. It comes in many different variations. Some choose to sport a fade on the sides, while others prefer settling for the undercut. A man bun undercut is often reserved for those with medium to long hair. Let’s look at 15 inspirational ideas to get you started.
Man Bun with Taper Fade
Go for a drop side part on either side, letting them dip sharply towards the back. Let the part lines merge to isolate the hair at the top. Sport a light texture to the hair below the part line and give it an undercut that sports a taper fade. Texture the long top and add some hair cream. Pull it from the back and front letting the strands merge in the middle. Tie into a knotted bun using the extra length.
Simple Man Bun
Settle for a messy yet cool styling that will let you steal the show with ease. Start off with some texture and make it more on the sides. Give the hair a comb part to isolate the top and proceed to sport a messy tapered undercut that connects to the beard line. Go for a ranked textured look at the top and pull towards the back to tie into a messy bun that’s given a chop at the tips.
Man Bun Cornrow Braids
Start this style by sporting an undercut that sits high on the sides. Let the undercut extend to the nape and give the long hair along the center a blowout. Start braiding from the front to the back and tie into a knot bun at the crown. This hairstyle is ideal for those with medium to long hair and might do well with some light texture on the undercut sides.
Man Bun Fade
Start with a shaved at the back and grab the rest of the hair-pulling it back to the position at the crown. Hold into a voluptuous ponytail and secure the base with a rubber band. Fold the ponytail into a bun and use the extra length to wrap around the base. Leave the tips loose for extra visual volume. Finish by trimming the beard to match the length of the undercut at the back. This hairstyle is a great choice for those with long voluptuous hair.
Classic Man Bun Undercut
Start in style by first going for the “gray man” look except for the beard that’s left dark brown. Sport a disconnected undercut and brush it to sit sleek. Sport a skin fade at the nape to add that clean and fresh look. Give the middle long hair a sleek pull to the back and tie it into a twisted low bun. Finish with a little taper at the merge point between the hair and beard. This hairstyle is an ideal choice for both medium and long hair.
Top Knot Undercut
Let the skin fade sit both on the sides and back. Give the long top hair a blowout texture, and add some hair cream to give it that shiny look. Proceed with a nice and smooth slick back and hold into a ponytail at the crown. Fold-down the ponytail at the middle and tie it into a bun secured with a rubber band.
Make this style look cool by starting with a light texture to your dark brown hair. Give the sides that cool high undercuts, letting it connect to the beard line. Give the top a pull towards the back, ensuring not to leave loose strands at the front. Position into a ponytail at the crown and tie into a short bun. Pull loose a few strands for extra touch up.
Man Bun Braids
Begin this style with dark brown hair sporting platinum blonde highlights. To get this style right, ensure you’ve got long hair. Start with a drop part on either side, letting them merge at the back. Sport a drop fade on the sides and give the long top hair a blowout texture. Pull it up and position it into a ponytail at the center top. While holding the base gives the ponytail a fold at the middle and secures it into a high bun. This style looks great on medium to long hair.
Line Up Haircut with Bun
Add that clean and fresh look to your bun hairstyle by starting with a high bald fade. Let it extend up to leave only the top section. Pull up the long top and hold first into a ponytail. Fold the ponytail at the center and secured the base to create that sexy looped bun. This is a great style for men with long hair.
Disconnected Man Bun with Design
Settle for an undercut sporting a blurred fade at the temple. Let the undercut sit high so as to leave only the top hair. Add some hair cream to the long hair on top and give it a smooth slick back. Grab it into a bundle at the crown and tie it into a bun using a rubber band. Finish with a skin fade at the start of the beard line to disconnect the hair from the beard.
Braided Man Bun with High Fade
Start this style with a mid-side part line that isolates the top. Settle for a high fade on the side to create that sexy connection to the beard line. Give the top hair some texture and pull back, ensuring not to leave any loose strands at the front. Hold into a ponytail at the crown and twist it in one direction. Fold into a bun and use a rubber band to secure it. This style is a perfect match for those with long hair.
Messy Bun with Undercut
Begin by styling the hair into textured curls and go on to sport a hard part on the sides. Settle for a high skin fade that disconnects the hair from the beard. Pull back the curly top and position it at the crown to tie it into a bun.
