The spot just below the crown is a good place to tie man bun intact. But you can always try out a variety of positions and see what suits you best. Some may be more comfortable tying it around the neck.

Men’s Low Bun
This is a super quick man bun for a carefree, casual look.

Smoothen your hair towards the nape of your neck, then securely tie it together in a bun.

Loose High Bun Hairstyle
The loose high bun is probably one of the most popular ways for men to arrange their longer hair, as it’s a timeless yet stylish look. Use your fingers to scoop your hair upwards towards the top back part of your head, before creating the bun. The important step is to then loosen and release some strands of hair to complete this ultra-casual, natural look.
This is a great style if you have thicker, more voluminous hair, but also works really well with thinner hair too. Use a brush or comb to help direct your hair upwards towards the top of your head, before bundling it together in a bun.
Loop it around a couple of times if necessary, and ensure that loose strands are directed downwards at the back of your head, to maintain a clear look from the side and front.
