How long does it take to grow a man hair bun?

Once you start growing your hair to reach a man hair bun stage, you will be in the beginner stage for the first six months, though there are several ways to help your hair grow faster.

From months 7 to 14, you will be in the awkward stage, which means that your hair will look untidy and messy no matter how you style it. From 14 to 18 months, you will be able to pull back your hair and tie it in a ponytail. After around 24 months, you will be able to make a decent man hair bun with your hair.

Of course, this is not a fixed guideline to grow your hair, as the speed with which your hair grows will be largely affected by your genetic factors and your individual hair growth patterns. Because growing a man hair bun takes around 2 years, most men do not have so much patience and they fail to endure to it. So, if you have successfully grown your hair that long, the man hair bun will be like a trophy for you.

Where to place a man hair bun

You can place your man hair bun anywhere on your head, but most men like to place it near the lower end of their head, near the nape. You can also place it on the crown or vertex of your head, near the back of your head’s top part. Most men have a cowlick in this area, so it can be styled and hidden with the bun. Where you place your bun can vary by an inch or two, but make sure that you don’t place it too high in the front of your head or too low on the back of your head.

How to tie a man hair bun

You can quickly tie a man hair bun just by using your hands and a hair band made of elastic. First scoop your long hair using your hands, and start moving backwards across the length of your hair. Scoop and collect all your hair at the vertex of your head. Then pass the elastic hair band through the end of your scooped hair and choke them in as if you are going to make a ponytail. Then pass the band for a second time, but do not pass the full hair, but leave it in between. You will automatically get a bun with this step. Then close the band in the end and circle any loose ends around the bun to give it a neat look.
