A few months ago, Justin Bieber was on Ryan Seacrest's radio show and mentioned that he wasn't sure about the man bun trend—he hadn't tried it yet, but he was open to it. Well, my friends, that sacred day has come, and it's all thanks to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
For Kanye's birthday, Kim rented out Staples Center for Kanye and a bunch of his friends, including Biebs, to play basketball. You know what's hard to do with hair in your eyes? Play sports. Enter the man bun.
Despite his semi-recent cut, JB's hair is still long enough on the top to bun it up. While part is cut out of it in this photo, it appears to be a very loose, partially tucked bun. Don't worry, Justin—if you dream big enough, one day Harry Styles' full bun can be yours.
If you were wondering what the 'do looks like in motion, behold this clip in which he sinks a shot and then runs down the court, bun flopping around on top of his head.
In a photo from after the game, Biebs let his hair down—literally and figuratively, I presume—and showed off that envy-inducing swoop.
Please let this mini bun be the sign of fuller buns to come—it's a good look for you, JB, embrace it.
