Men who wear man buns: you’ve officially been recognized.
The artwork shows a heavily tattooed man wearing a tank top, laser-focused on crafting a top knot for his long hair:
Artist Peter de Sève, who created the cover, told the magazine about his muse(s) for the artwork:
“Brooklyn’s eccentricities are an endless font of inspiration for a guy in my line of work,” de Sève said. “I live in Park Slope, and my covers are often inspired by a person or place a few blocks from my home—if not right outside my window.”
Though the hairstyle took off a few years ago, this cover is proof the man bun’s popularity hasn’t slowed down one bit. At one point, Groupon even offered clip-on man buns for men who wanted the hairstyle but didn’t quite have the long locks to achieve it:
Considering real man buns are believed to cause baldness, these fake buns might actually be the best option for men who wear the hairstyle often.
What a time to be alive.
