The Clip-On Man Bun is Real and It’s Terrifying

+

Can’t grow a man bun or simply haven’t the patience for your man locks to grow that coveted bun-worthy length? Don’t! Or, if you’re dead set on sporting the douchiest hairdo available to mankind, you can now purchase a clip-on man bun via Groupon for the low, low price of $9.99… so long as there are enough douchebag wannabes also up for the purchase.

Unfortunately, there are. According to Groupon over one thousand clip-on man buns have been sold already. This is my nightmare.

And as the reasonable price indicates, these beauties are manufactured from 100% synthetic crap in a wide range of lifelike colors. It even comes with its very own cheeky, self-aware instructions:

  1. Comb your hair back toward the crown of your head, in a similar motion to lacquering a reclaimed-wood coffee table
  2. Attach the man bun to your natural hair the way the lay public attached itself to Arcade Fire
  3. Use bobby pins to secure the man bun, decide bobby pins are too mainstream, use antique paper clips instead

So ladies – next time you’re cruising Williamsburg, be sure to tug on those suckers and see if they’re real.
