At last night’s 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, celebrities came out to celebrate the best in television and cinema – and to walk the red carpet, kicking off award season with their best ensembles, hair and makeup.
After last year’s big-hit trend of beards and facial hair seen on A-listers such as, George Clooney, Ben Affleck and Hugh Jackman we wondered how they would top it – and they did with the hipster “man-bun”. The statement was made in a cool, yet assertive way.
Vaughn Acord, Celebrity Grooming Stylist to the stars, says, “the man-bun is a real statement maker; it oozes confidence and shows character. But, don’t confuse it with a ponytail – the man-bun is definitely manlier; think samurai. It also frames the face, allowing chiseled features to stand out. And, it is best paired with a beard.”
Here are Vaughn’s tips on how to style the man-bun:
~Start off on damp hair. Rub a wax through hair from root to tips that will create separation and definition to hair so when it is pulled back, it is not completely slick. Try: V76 by Vaughn V-Rated Wax.
~Next, using your hands, loosely pull hair back above the nape of the neck.
~Secure with an elastic pony holder, looping hair through, making it appear as effortless as possible.
~You can either wear it completely slick back or leave it as is, but for a slicked look, apply a grooming cream to get rid of any flyaways. Try: V76 by Vaughn Well Groomed Ultralight Cream.
