This Corn Row, Fade, Man Bun Combination Is Giving Us All The Feels

Omarion

It is kind of rare for us to feature a guy on the blog, not on purpose but just because we typically get caught up in our own hair needs we sometimes forget about the guys.

A week or so ago Omarion caught the attention of many of us on social media with the above style. It was a combination of a man bun, cornrows and a fade.

I am no Omarion fan but I can appreciate a good looking style and brother when I see one. I loved this combination and many of the guys in our communities are starting to do it more often.

The natural hair care message is for everyone and the guys are starting to get the memo and get creative with their hair as well as taking great care of their own strands.

How many guys do you know on growth journeys and who are constantly asking you for hair advice? They are shopping in the same aisle as we are and they are on YouTube talking about their own hair styles and hair care trials and they are on Instagram showing off dope styles like the one above.

Check out Quentin Combs take on the trend in the below photo:

Then Chris Brown joined in along with Kid Ink:

Not to be left out, someone thought it would be fun to add President Obama to the mix:

If you want to rock the same style it can be done. As a matter of fact blogger Fresh Lengths did a version of the style that I am absolutely in love with and would not mind trying myself. She combined corn rows with an elegant top knot ensuring that her edges were styled to perfection, see below:
