Messy man bun
The highly stylised semi-bun style, with mini topknot and shorn sides (as modelled, briefly, by Zayn Malik), may have had its moment in the sun, but that doesn't mean it's time to throw away all those hair ties. A rugged, outdoorsy take on the style that we're calling the messy man bun – think lots and lots of locks, pulled back casually into a loose knot, and, ideally, paired with a mountain-man beard – is a strong look for the coming cooler weather. Just rake back your hair casually, running your fingers through it to add a little texture and volume, and twist it up into a relaxed bun. Don't worry if some sections fall out – it adds to the Viking vibe.
