Finally it seems the man bun trend is over (or at least it’s getting an update) as trendy Instagrammers are all over the latest hair craze — the man braid.

Combining cornrows and an optional man bun or ponytail, it’s the hairdo of choice for hipsters this summer.

Mostly we’re just impressed with these guys’ incredible braiding skills.

We 100% could not do this on our own hair.
But we have to admit, this is a trend we can get behind.

Even when combined with a pop of color, it’s nowhere near as horrifying as the glitter beards fiasco of last year.

It’s basically just mini-cornrows, and who doesn’t love those?
We can’t put our finger on why exactly, but we’re really enjoying this Instagram/follicle movement.

Combine your man braid with shaved sides for that totally cutting-edge hipster look.

Oh, and sit in a coffee shop reading Dorian Gray to achieve true hipster status. You should probably mention The Smiths, too.
If you’re going all out, why not add some floral adornments to your pretty plait?

Foliage no, man braids yes.
