With hairdressers and hair salons mostly closed due to lockdowns last year, many men had to skip haircuts and let their hair grow out.

Some took the opportunity to experiment with their locks, or they tied it back out of convenience, which sparked a man-bun revival.

British fitness trainer Joe Wicks is one of the athletes to wear the man bun hairstyle this year, which has a section of long hair tied in a bun at the top or the back of the head.

The hipster hairstyle became increasingly popular in the 2010s when it was worn by musicians, actors and footballers alike.

Harry Styles, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto and Gareth Bale were all fans of the man-bun during this period, but it's set to make a comeback again.

Now that men are forced to grow their hair during the pandemic, fashion editors predict the trend will return.

Speaking to the Guardian, Garrett Munce, the male health editor, said, "I think we'll see a lot more men with long hair in 2021.

“Some because they discovered (during lockdown) that they like to have long hair, others just for practical reasons.

"As of 2020, when most of us spent most of the year in quarantine, haircuts became rarer."

Charlie Teasdale, Esquire's styling director, says the man-bun "pays homage to a traditional, gross view of masculinity," while others wear it "with more of an allusion to sexual fluidity."
