BYU-Idaho Says No to the "Man-Bun"

MR says: After learning the Honor Code Office has outlawed the "man bun" as an extreme hairstyle, men across BYU-Idaho's campus are mourning the loss of their locks even while some girls on campus are rejoicing.

The BYU-Idaho Honor Office has started enforcing disciplinary action against those with a hairstyle commonly known as the “man-bun.”

The “man-bun” is typically worn with hair shaved on the sides of the head with a top-knot worn in the middle.

“We would consider the ‘man-bun’ to be an extreme hairstyle,” said Tyler Barton, Student Honor Administrator. “It’s just something that deviates from the norm.”

Barton said any hairstyle that is different or uncommon would fall under this same category, therefore receiving the same action.
