Just When You Thought It Was Over, Clip-On Man Buns Are Now A Thing

Let's just set the record straight here - when it comes to personal style, you do whatever the heck you want. Fancy decorating your beard with baubles? Fine. Wanna wear ripped jeans in the sun? No problem - although don't forget the sunscreen.

However, it's kinda undeniable that having a top knot - AKA 'man bun', AKA 'mun' - does project a certain hipsterish quality about a person.

Nevertheless, the inescapable hair craze surfaced several years back and has continued to be worn by blokes across the world, as more and more men adopt the questionable hairstyle. Again, fine. No judgement here.

But surely, just surely, the latest in the top knot craze is a step too far - clip-on man buns.

Yes, folks, it looks like clip-on man buns are a thing and they're all the rage, apparently.

Bluecrate are the culprits behind this new product, having recently launched the man buns and put them up for sale on their website.

Those who are struggling to grow a ponytail or would simply like to test run the hairstyle can purchase the clip-on man buns - which come in blonde, brown, and black - for just under $8 (£6.25) each.

While you might think this is some sort of weird joke, the clip-ons are close to a five-star rating on Bluecrate. Which we're afraid to say means people don't hate them and they're actually buying the damn things. Yikes!

Perhaps we should look on the bright side in that at least if you fall into the very small pool of people wanting a man bun and not being able to grow one, then at least there's a solution.

As the website so helpfully says: "The hair extension that attaches to your head! Giving you the perfect man bun, anytime, anywhere.

"Simply tie up your hair; open up the man bun; then secure it to your head; and enjoy the new hairstyle you deserve."

While you're at it, you might as well grab yourself one of Bluecrate's Beer Belly bumbags and Animal Paw Hands, and just go full weird. You're worth it, fellas!
