Brooklyn bar creates ‘man bun’ booze offer

4th January, 2017 by Annie Hayes

Brooklyn bar Boobie Trap has taken aim at the ‘man bun’ hairstyle trend with a special offer: chop it off for a free bottle of booze.

Would you part ways with your man bun for booze?

According to reports, the neighbourhood hangout is keen to stamp out the notorious “hipster” hairstyle as a new year rolls around.

The bar posted a pink sign on its door stating the terms of the ‘Man Bun Special’ after Christmas: ‘one full booze bottle in exchange for one bun removal…!’

“We’d film the amputation and pin the bun up on the wall,” Boobie Trap co-owner Kristen North told Brokelyn. “I don’t think they’re cute and just think I’ve seen way too many of them last season and want to help along a new style sensation.”

SB understands no male bun-bearers have come forward as of yet – watch this space.
