This hair tutorial on how to tie a messy man bun was published in 2017, and we are still rocking it. First written during the holidays, we’ve kept the original references and language below from 2017 for posterity.

We also offer a complete line of hair care products and accessories, including our world-famous Hair Ties For Guys, shampoo & conditioner, headwraps, headbands and more. Join the community below…and we’ll even share the secret handshake.

If you’re a guy with long hair, you’re in the right place.

A Quick, Easy Family Favorite

As we get ready to spend quality time with family and friends this holiday season, we’ve got another men’s long hairstyle to add to your quiver.

Just like sloppy joes for dinner, this messy man bun is fast, easy, and the whole family will love it. Here at The Longhairs we like to call it The Sloppy Joe. If you’re not sure why, start with How to Tie a “Man Bun” (without calling it that).

How to tie a messy man bun with El Moreno

A lot of big things have happened here at The Longhairs these last 12 months. Milestones were hit, goals were achieved and this amazing community has continued to grow. Looking back, there is so much to be thankful for, but most importantly is you. Without you, none of this would be possible, and we thank you from the depths of our hair.

So grab yourself a tall glass of eggnog (with or without cheer), give this holiday high ball a whirl, and keep lettin’ it ride. With our warmest and most sincere holiday hair whips and high fives, here’s how to tie a messy man bun.


  1. At night when I sleep my hair keeps getting in my mouth. What do you guys do to keep it from falling in the mouth. For the guys that have people that keep botching to you to cut there hair. Tell them to Fuck off. Now on the series side. If people keep bitching about you hair. Keep growing after while no one says any thing. They actually will start telling you they like it. So keep growing.

  2. What I have concluded from this video is that you have better hair and styling techniques than I do.

    Thank you for that.

    My Christmas wish has come true.

  3. “So get yourself some eggnog, light up that fat stogie and tell grandpa (or whomever is telling you to cut your hair) to kiss your ass cause you’re going for one more year of growth.”

    I immediately texted this to my younger brother who’s always busting my balls about my hair. You’re next, grandma.

  4. with my almost classic length, it should be difficult doing a messy bun, and i must adapt female buns…lol
