Welcome to ‘Fraud-itch’. Where the ponies (as in tails, not horses) become phoneys and posers become losers (shut up, just pronounce it ‘lowsers’ ok?) with Groupon’s new ‘Clip In Man Bun: For The Man Who Wears Many Hats And No Bun’ hair accessory. Admittedly this is an American nightmare, but we feel it’s so relatable over here in hipster-ville. Not sure whether to laugh or to cry? NEITHER ARE WE.
Thankfully, it appears that Groupon aren’t taking this new and TOTALLY RIDICULOUS fad too seriously, writing in item description: “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.” LOL! ?
We mean, the advertisement on this outrageous (non)commodity is priceless – and the instructions are even better!
How To Wear It
- 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.
So, sorry hipsters – looks like all that effort you put into growing you hair just to make the man bun possible has gone to waste…what. a. shame.
