Photos: Man Buns Are Everywhere, Even Disneyland
Whether you love or hate the man bun, we're seeing it on men everywhere now. It's a style we blame Jared Leto for starting, and celebs like Leonardo DiCaprio and Kit Harrington for spreading (though, we had to admit they look pretty good with the hairstyle).
In Man Buns of Disneyland, you'll see DILFs with man buns, one dude with TWO man buns, and bros hanging out together both sporting the same hairstyle. It's wonderful. We think the man bun may be growing on us. Hey, sometimes gets hot at Disneyland, and you don't want messy hair while you're riding Space Mountain.
Man Buns of Disneyland was started in February by Christy, who asked us not to use her last name. She tells LAist how she came up with the idea for this Instagram. "I'm an annual pass holder, so I go to Disneyland a lot," she says. "And I remember seeing a guy with a perfect man bun in line for the Jungle Cruise and my first (creepy) instinct was to Snapchat it to a friend. So I did, and after that I kept seeing dudes with man buns and thought it would be pretty funny to make a IG page out of it. And voila, Man Buns of Disneyland was born."
Feel free to snap your own photos of man buns you spot at Disneyland using the #manbunsofdisneyland hashtag, and direct message the Instagram account here to submit pictures.
