The samurai bun: does it look better on women or men?

Popular for both men (a la the "man bun") and women, the samurai bun is trending. We have to ask: which one looks best?

The feminine samurai bun

The look

The feminine samurai bun is created with an extra-sleek ponytail. Whether you have mid-length or long hair, secure your locks at the crown of the head so that the look is totally visible. The ends of your hair should be left free, but without too much range and movement.

The style

Somewhere between chignon and ponytail, the samurai updo found its own place in fashion magazines- and soon in your hair ! To make it even trendier, don't hesitate to give it the wet look twist.

What the editors say

We count very few samurai women in Japanese history, yet the unisex hair trend inspired by these warriors is clearly more popular for women at the moment. What a stylish way to bring back such an iconic look!

The masculine samurai bun

The look

The masculine samurai bun is worn low on long hair and high on mid-length and short hair. This step is very important, to show the connection between the bun part and the ponytail part of the look.

The style

We note that the "hipsterization" of men's hair trends has made the samurai bun a popular look, and wearing it with an undercut makes it even more on trend.

What the editors say

To make the look even more masculine, don't forget to pair it with a neatly trimmed beard!
