What is a man bun undercut? New type of man bun hairstyle?
I was going thru the man bun hairstyles in the forum and I can see some man buns have the undercut haircut, is this called the man bun undercut? the hair is buzzed thru the sides and the back and then the hair on the top has the classic manbun. Or is there any other hairstyle name for this type of man bun with undercut hairstyle?

Example of man bun undercut, Zayn Malik in this picture:

The definition of a man bun Undercut hairstyle.
The man bun Undercut is essentially a regular man bun hairstyle that has the sides and back of the head clipped as per the textbook Undercut haircut. To make it even easier to visualize, think of the classic slicked back Undercut; now, grow the hair on the top of the head some 2 more inches and tie the hair as a bun to be placed on the crown of your head (i.e. back of the top of the head). That's your man bun Undercut hairstyle!

So let's take the slicked back Undercut of Jimmy Darmody as played by Michael Pitt in Boardwalk Empire. That's a classic slicked back Undercut. See below:

Now, you take Jimmy Darmody's slick back Undercut, keep the sides and back of the head buzzed (i.e. clipped) with the same hair clipper length while letting the hair on the top of the head grow a little longer. You now have enough length on the top to tie it into a bun. Since you've kept the single hair clipper length Undercut on the sides and back of the head, the bun that you've styled is now called the man bun Undercut.

As with most hairstyles, the man bun Undercut hairstyle name indicates that it's a blend of more than one style (e.g. another example is the slicked back Undercut or the High Top Fade).

This is how the man bun Undercut looks. It's essentially the same as a top knot hairstyle.

See the next two pictures below for how the man bun Undercut looks from behind. The second picture is actually a 2-step Undercut as a man bun can be cut on the sides and back of the head with a wide range of hair clipper haircuts. Likewise, the Undercut for the man bun is usually smoother and less aggressive aesthetically than the Undercut for slicked back hair, vertical hair and messy hair.

Comparing the regular man bun hair style with the manbun Undercut.
To give you a better idea of how different the man bun Undercut is, I will post below some pictures of regular man buns. Essentially, the difference between the manbun Undercut and the regular man bun is that the former uses an Undercut haircut while the latter has all the hair on the sides and back of the head tied into the single bun atop the head.

With a regular man bun, you grow the hair on the sides and back of the head as long or almost as long as the hair on the top of the head. With the man bun Undercut, you grow the hair on the top of the head while keeping the sides and back of the head very short by buzzing it with a low hair clipper length. Likewise, a longer hair length is needed for the regular manbun compared to the Undercut man bun.

Here are some regular man bun pictures.

RE: What is a man bun undercut? New type of man bun hairstyle?
Right that makes a lot more sense cause the topknot is the smaller bun and the undercut keeps the sides too short. The hair on the top is the only hair that you use for the manbun undercut aka topknot so the bun is smaller.
From what the guys have told me in the forum you need about six inches of length on the top for the man bun undercut. So if you want to get a bun with short hair then that would be the best hairstyle. I asked a similar question some time back and the replies were about the whole man bun using way more hair length.
I know lots of guys who grow their hair a bit longer to get those man bun undercuts, but these guys are mostly hipsters as the topknot is like the new hipster hairstyle trend.

This is a cool picture of the man bun undercut with beard. Check it out...
