Or, rather, not groomed himself into my ideal man. Wild, untamed, untrimmed, wooly mammoth beard? CHECK. Hair long enough to be casually pulled back into a haphazard low bun? CHECK. Emotionally stunted, as evidenced by his recent tendency to date much younger swimsuit models? CHECK … okay, so he’s not quite my dream man. But close enough! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
The Oscars are this Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I have been positively, absolutely salivating from the anticipation of finally finding out — no, not which film will win “Best Picture” — how Jared Leto will style his gorgeous head of cascading ombre man locks for the occasion. Having seen those strands in person, having touched them however briefly, I can confirm that his hair is as great as photos suggest. It’s glossy and has the perfect copper-y ends, but is also limp in that way that only man hair can be limp and sexy. SO ANNOYING. Basically, it’s perfect, down or up, though you know I ride hard for man buns.
Which is why I am positively verklempt to read what his ombre expert (duh, of course he has one) has planned for Academy Awards night. Given that Jared is practically a lock to take home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the man formerly-but-forever-known-as Jordan Catalano has got to look like a winner.

It is rare that I meet a man bun I don’t love — and this is not one of those times. I imagine I might be alone in this, but I find Jake Gyllenhaal even more bangable with that nubbin of knotted hair. I wonder what kind of hair ties he uses? I’m a Goody girl. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Y’all know how passionately I feel about man buns. (I like them. I like them a lot.) So I’m horrified that people — okay, Buzzfeed — are so loose with the term that they would even think to refer to this little turd poking out of the back of Leonardo DiCaprio’s head as a man bun. C’mon, there is no actual bun to speak of. Calling it a man bun is insulting to real man buns, ones with volume, and heft, and sex appeal. Really, it’s the world’s teeniest, tiniest, most useless ponytail. And this is gonna sound harsh, but real talk: just because you can pull a few strands of hair back with an elastic doesn’t mean your should. Okay, Leo? [Photos: Fame/Flynet and Splash News]
Controversial opinion: I love a guy with a man bun. By that I mean, I love a guy who has just enough hair to pull it back into a small bun. I don’t particularly care for long, flowing locks on a man, nor do I like men’s hair pulled back into a ponytail. No, no, my lust for men’s updos is limited explicitly to the man bun, which, lucky for me, you can find in droves in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. A couple weeks ago, I followed a guy for five blocks simply because of how hot his man bun was. This weekend, I played a rousing game of “Spot The Man Bun” while having drinks at a bar in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and came up with five in as many minutes. You know where else spotting man buns is like shooting fish in a barrel? Hollywood! Here are 16 famous dudes doing the man bun thing…
