Think of a braid as an accent for short hair instead of the basis for the overall style. A small inverted braid is perfect for adding pizzazz to the standard man bun.

Black men's long hair doesn’t mean that all of the hair has to be long! This has a Samoa-inspired feel to it because of the curve of the fade. For more visual interest, the line design was cut in to demarcate the two sections.
For an easy way to stand out from the crowd that doesn’t require too much maintenance, go for a half top knot. Ladies love a black guy with a bun. For real. This is a creative style that is still very urban. Keep the fade below looking clean with regular trips to the barber.
The micro man-bun evokes a younger vibe and it's here to stay. Perfect for any age-range and face features.

The man bun is back! 💪🏼 What do you think is better? Bun or beard? #manbun #beard #helix

If your facial hair is growing fast, find the perfect balance between the hair on your head and your chin. The best in this style is the combination of medium locks and long beard.
Most Asian men have thick textured hair. That is why they like to wear braided hairstyles with shaved sides.
Bun styles for longer hair can be experimental. It can be sleek and messy, high and low, neat and fluffy, business- or hipster-styled. To find your own you have to experiment a lot and let your inner creativity be wild.
A simple line or an intricately carved pattern can be added as a shaved design to your tapered sides and will be a great asset to your cut.
