Well, because…

You’re at the bottom of the list, Colin. No man bun trophy for you.

21. Shia LaBeouf.


Well, at least he’s not bottom.

20. Alex Ebert.

It’s one of the most outstanding of the bunch. But because it’s just one massive mess on top of his head he scores low.

19. Adrian Grenier.

Okay, so he’s incredibly pretty but it’s a man half up-do, not a true man bun. Come on, guys.

18. Emile Hirsch.

He can’t quite tie it up, therefore he’s not getting any higher.

17. Joaquin Phoenix.

Just a bit too unkempt we’re afraid, Joaquin.

16. Leonardo DiCaprio.


It’s more a ponytail than a bun. And we’ve seen him look SO much better. But it’s Leo, so we’ll let him off.

15. Mickey Rourke.

What a bun, what a bun, what a mighty good bun. But it just doesn’t look quite right.

14. David Beckham.

Circa 2003. He of course was one of the first to rock the trend. But a bit slick and a bit too highlighted for us.

13. Gavin Rossdale.

He gets points for wearing a man bun so often. But time to hide the receding hairline?

12. Jason Momoa.

The Game Of Thrones star can’t really do any wrong, and well, it just suits him.

11. Orlando Bloom.

We approve, Orlando.

10. Bradley Cooper.


It’s so small you can barely see it. But my he makes it look good.

9. Oliver Proudlock.

Good bun, body not bad either. Proudlock, we salute you.

8. Shahrukh Khan

This is what we call a proper man bun.

7. Penn Badgley.


So good it’s good enough for an Alexander Wang commercial.

6. Chris Hemsworth.

Another frequent wearer of the man bun. So casual, so him, so yes.

5. Harry Styles.

Harry with a bun and a headband. Just so right.

4. Russell Brand.


He misfires in many, many ways, but this is pretty fantastic.

3. Jake Gyllenhaal.


Neat and small, but big man bun points.

2. Brad Pitt.

One word: YES. So silky, much style, wow.
