Ok, now let’s get down to business. In this video we're gonna be talking about a couple of things that you can do to make your man bun look more masculine. This question has popped up quite a bit which I thought it was necessary to do something about.
So, here we are and we're doing it. So, tip number one for making your man bun look a little bit more masculine. This one's gonna be the most obvious one, but it's facial hair. So, obviously facial hair is a feature that males have. Now, if you look at me, my face is very round, right?
So, without all this facial hair, you can see back in my like, check-in 16, I had a bare face and my face looked very round. And what I feel like beard hair does, or a bit of facial hair, is a, it helps shape my face to stop making it look so round but it's also enhancing the fact that I'm a male.
So yeah, I feel like it really enhances the masculine look of my face and ever since I started wearing it and playing around with my beard hair I feel like yeah, it does me a service.
But on the other hand, as well, so this leads me into tip number two, not a lot of you guys can grow facial hair. I mean my facial hair is pitiful as it is, like it's quite patchy and whatever, but it still serves me pretty good with what I have. Now, a lot of you guys might have very, very, very scarce facial hair so it's hard for you to have a masculine looking appearance.
A good way that you can counteract not being able to grow facial hair and still have a masculine looking man bun, is maybe considering getting the undercut man bun.
I always find like a shaven side, or shaven sides, make a more masculine appearance. Maybe because women just do not ever shave, well they do, they do shave their head but it's very uncommon.
But a shaven head is like a masculine trait, as well, that we kinda see in society.
So, by shaving up the sides, you give your head a little bit more length which can give it more shape but also yeah, you get that slick, shaven look which I feel really enhances masculinity. So, if you can't grow facial hair, try that out.
A full man bun might not be the best thing for you, you just kind of have to weigh it up. And if you can grow facial hair, maybe even try having a bit of shaven sides, as well. Then you've got like double masculine happening. So, moving onto tip number three.
Tip number three is to bold your features a little bit more. So with, I've discussed growing facial hair and how that can shape your face and make your face look more boof, like manly. But also, looking at your eyebrows and your eyelashes, they're a really good way to enhance your facial features, as well.
And because your facial features are on your face, they're very close to the hair, so it kind of ties the picture all in together. So, if we've got bold here, bold here, we can then look at the feminine looking hairstyle and go, okay, this is definitely a male. Do you know what I mean? It's like a differentiator and I feel like bold features really scream masculinity.
I've got my eyebrows on in this video as you can see. I've actually got accustomed to doing different shapes on my eyebrows. And I usually have a bit of patchiness through here. So, with my little brush tool and my eyebrow thing, I just go fwoop, and fill them in.
I also blink on it as well, just to enhance my eyelashes a little bit more and give me that bolder effect to tie in the whole look to my face. And that's tip number three.

As for new man bun video ideas, I have run a little bit low, so if any of you out there that have ideas about what I can do next for the man bun monthly episode, that would be great.
Maybe we could even do a deeper dive into the eyebrows thing or we could do a deeper dive into the colour schemes to wear and I could show you some different things to wear with it.
You let me know what you wanna see, okay? But yeah, I hope you found this informative and I'll see you next month for the next episode.
