A popular hairstyle you’ve probably seen a male bartender or yoga instructor rocking around town seems to have made its way to Rio de Janeiro. The man bun, as The Wall Street Journal pointed out Tuesday, is everywhere at the 2016 Olympic Games.
Male athletes love the hairstyle. Aron Baynes, a basketball player for Australia, sports perhaps the most high-profile man bun at the games. It’s hard to miss, really; Baynes is 6-foot-10 and 254 pounds.
Plenty of other athletes have grown out their locks and tied it up too, though.
USA Track and Field athletes Evan Jager (steeplechase), Michael Tinsley (400 meters) and Robby Andrews (1,500 meters) all have man buns.
French basketball player Antoine Diot, British gymnast Louis Smith and Slovakian mountain biker Peter Sagan sport the hairstyle as well. They’re ubiquitous in Rio.
“I haven’t seen anyone else with this hairstyle before,” Smith told The Wall Street Journal. “And it’s nice to be different.”
Clearly, Smith has never visited Denver.
