Man Bun Undercut Hairstyle - Official Guide with Pictures, How to Style, Inspiration
The man bun Undercut hairstyle is a spin-off of the slicked back Undercut. As you can see in the picture of a man bun Undercut, the hair is buzzed very short as per the regular Undercut haircut while the hair is left as long as one may desire. The hair is tied as a single bun atop the head, and the location for the man bun is usually the vertex of the head.

A good length to aim for with the man bun Undercut is 6 inches (on the top of the head) as this is the minimum hair length that will allow you to tie the hair on the front of your head. Any shorter length can lead to traction alopecia, which unfortunately is a hair loss issue that is usually downplayed by young guys until it's too late.

With regards to the sides and back of the head (i.e. the Undercut hair), the length should be a hair clipper length no higher than a number three and as low as a zero hair clipper length with no guiding comb attached. Since the hair in the manbun Undercut is tied tight, there are no sharp edges (unlike with the rest of Undercuts) and thus extremely-short lengths can be chosen for the sides and back of the head. In fact, you could choose an undershave (i.e. shave the sides and back) instead of an Undercut and the hairstyle would still look decent.

Pictures of the man bun Undercut:

You will notice in the pictures below that the size of the buns differ. This is because the size of a bun is dictated by how long the hair on the top of your hair is. In fact, the topknot hairstyle is the short-bun version of the man bun Undercut and is another name for the 6-inch-long manbun Undercut.

Either way, you can call it whichever hairstyle name you want; the important thing is that the sides and back of the head are buzzed in an Undercut haircut and the hair on the top of the head is the only hair left to grow as long as you want and to be used when tying the bun.

What hair products should you buy for your man bun Undercut hairstyle?
Hair products for the manbun Undercut:

The hair products needed for a man bun Undercut are minimal: an elastic hair band, some hairstyling cream and a good hair clipper.
  • Hair band: simply browse through our detailed men's hair accessories guide and get yourself a set of elastic hair bands that are metal free. You may also want to get an elastic headband if the hair on the front (i.e. forelock) of your head hangs down your face and cannot yet be tied into your man bun.
  • Hairstyling cream: the best hairstyling product for long hairstyles including the manbun and topknot is a hairstyling cream aka styling creme. Go through our recommended hair products to check out the one that we recommend in the forum.
  • Hair clipper: the Undercut is a very easy haircut to cut on your own, so there's no need to visit the barbershop or hair salon every time that you want to trim down your Undercut. That's where owning your own hair clipper becomes extremely convenient as you can literally give yourself a great Undercut in less than 10 minutes. Go through our recommended hair clippers to choose a good hair clipper according to your budget, and never buy one of those cheap generic hair clippers as they will burn down after you 7th Undercut!
More pictures:

Some more man bun Undercut pictures. You will see in some pictures that the hair looks to be pulled back and tied very tight. While this makes the topknot or bun look more aesthetic, the actual pulling of the hair and the constant tension on the follicles from the bun is something that you want to seriously avoid if you appreciate your current hairline.

We've already spotted cases of men stating to destroy their hairline from pulling their hair and keeping it tied all day through into a man bun. It's better to wait a little more and grow some more length so as to be able to tie the bun properly than be tying your hair super tight because you hardly have any length to make a bun. Trust me, you will thank us 5 years down the line when your man-bun buddies have an awkward hairline while you've gotten to keep your hairline intact! Smile

How the hair on the top of the head with the Undercut on the sides and back looks prior to tying the bun. This should give you an idea of how the hair is disconnected with the Undercut!

RE: Man Bun Undercut Hairstyle - Official Guide with Pictures, How to Style, Inspiration
If you wanna keep the undercut with the man bun, how much time should pass in between undercuts?? i read in the forum that the maximum time to pass is one month for the undercut, but cause the undercut is so short with the topknot should we do something like one week periods to buzz the undercut??
Thanks dude i always love these threads where you go thru the hairstyle in full and with all the pics Smile
