Man Braids Are A Thing, And They're Taking Over Instagram (PHOTOS)

As much as we love the man bun, we have been suffering from a bit of fatigue from the hairstyle as of late. Luckily, there's a brand new 'do for guys that's unfurling, and it's giving us major plait envy.

Presenting the man braid, a style that's currently taking over Instagram, and for good reason. A quick search of #ManBraid on the social media app will bring up some very impressive and intricate hairstyles, which put our own plaiting skills to shame.

And while the man braid isn't exactly new (remember when Harry Styles donned the look last year, or when Jared Leto showed off his plaited hair at the 2015 Golden Globes?), the style is definitely making its way to the mainstream, and taking on several different variations.

From French braids to waterfall plaits and everything in between, check out some of our favourite man braids below.
