Trending men's hairstyles: undercut or man bun?

Undercut vs man bun

Female celebrities aren't the only ones who like to change up their hairstyles – male celebrities enjoy it just as much! They like to alternate between short and long styles, Brad Pitt being a prime example. Which style suits him best: the undercut or the man bun?

Brad Pitt's undercut

The hairstyle: For his role in ''Fury'' Brad Pitt had to trade in his iconic long blond locks for an undercut. The top part of the hair is left long and then the sides are buzzed in order to create a striking contrast between the two. The final look is modern but retro at the same time.

The style: This haircut is a cross between modern gentleman and hipster, resulting in a unique style that can complement lots of different looks. Brad Pitt was able to pull it off amazingly well as a soldier in the movie, as well as in a tuxedo on the red carpet. To keep the style in place and create a wet look, spray or gel is used.

What the editors say: We're tempted to say that everything suits Brad Pitt and that he can make anything stylish because well...it's Brad Pitt! However towards the end of 2015 Ewan McGregor also got an undercut, proving that this haircut really is a trend.

Brad Pitt's man bun

The hairstyle: There's no exact formula for what the 'man bun' is. So long as a guy has long hair and creates some sort of bun (tight, loose, high or low on the head...) it can be classified as one.

The style: The man bun suits so many different personalities, face shapes and styles, that a lot of men are jumping on board with the look. Surfers, rockers and hipsters are all able to pull it off and make it their own.

What the editors say: For years Brad Pitt has rocked a lob and tied it up into a man bun, even before it became cool. He was a top trendsetter for this look along with Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp. If only one thing's for certain, it's that Brad Pitt has an irresistible timeless charm and is able to seduce the world, no matter what his hairstyle is!
