This is not a drill: You can now purchase clip-on man buns. That's right, man buns are now optional and attachable. Now it's not only women singing along when "Get Me Bodied" comes on when you're on the dance floor. The boys can join in too, with weaves of their very own! Kind of! You can now purchase the detachable man bun for the super low price of $9.99 on Groupon, reduced from a whopping $64.34. You know, if attaching a little pet to your man head is a thing. Apparently it's someone's thing, because over 1,000 of these bad boys have been purchased already.
The clip-on man bun is apparently "for the man who wears many hats, but no bun," so if you're looking to Jared Leto–up your look this fall, you're in luck. The description, which might be the best part about this temporary man bun (which, by the way, is made from artificial hair) continues,
"One of the hottest trends in men’s fashion, the man bun has been popularized by fixed-gear bicyclists and introspective Hollywood actors alike. But although the hairstyle oozes with fashion sense, those who sport it might find themselves outcasts in sports bars, motorcycle gangs, and the annual government-mandated machismo test. This attachable — and, equally important, detachable — man bun lets you blend in with your surroundings, putting it on when you smell fair-trade coffee or hear a banjo, and taking it off when someone utters the word bro."
It's hard to know if this product takes itself seriously or not (I'm going to err on the side of no, it does not), especially with the following instructions:
"Comb your hair back toward the crown of your head, in a similar motion to lacquering a reclaimed-wood coffee table.
Attach the man bun to your natural hair the way the lay public attached itself to Arcade Fire.
Use bobby pins to secure the man bun, decide bobby pins are too mainstream, use antique paper clips instead".
You can be a brunette bun bro:

Choose your own adventure!
Holy man bun.
