Samurai hairstyles can be traced back to 794 A.D when the original Samurais styled their hair in this iconic style. For them, it was a practical choice, since this hairstyle requires very little maintenance and also kept the Warriors’ hair out of their face and tied back neatly. The modern man, however, wears this style because it is chic, bold, and sexy. The Samurai hairstyle has gained a lot of popularity among men in recent years, especially since more men now prefer wearing their hair long.
Samurai Hairstyle vs. Man Bun
Many men believe that a man bun and a Samurai hairstyle are one in the same thing. However, there is a slight difference between the two; in a Samurai hairstyle, the bun is worn a little higher than in a classic man bun. Also, your hair needs to be at least six to nine inches long to get the perfect Samurai hairstyle. You can also make this style your own by adding in a skin fade. You can wear a Samurai hairstyle in two ways; a semi bun or a full bun. You can make it sleek by pulling the hair back really tight and using a spray to tame any stray hair. Or you can pull your hair back and wear it in a loose bun with some strands left out the sides and back.
