And it's about time!
Brigham Youth University(BYU), Utah, has, in a move that leaves us with mixed feelings, banned its students from having a man bun.
The private university is "enforcing disciplinary action against those with a hairstyle" as it "deviates from", according to Tyler Barton, Student Honor Administrator. Because why would you want any kind of diversity in college, you're better off crushing any kind of free-thinking and individuality, amiright, Utah?
Barton said that the university would consider the man-bun to be an extreme hairstyle, and is out of line with the school's Honor Code. Extreme? It's a of long hair tied up, hardly earth-shattering stuff.
We don't like man buns, or maybe we just don't like a lot of the people who have man buns, either way there's something about them that doesn't sit quite right with us. Having said that, BYU sounds like a pretty crap place to go to study if they have a dress code that stops people from expressing themselves.
Still, it doesn't sound like they're going to change, so all we can do is leave them with this message.
