One Brooklyn bar wants to end the man bun once and for all. Bushwick drinkery the Boobie Trap will gift a full bottle of booze to any dude willing to chop off his top knot inside the bar. “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,” Boobie Trap co-owner Kristen North told Brokelyn.
Distaste for the man bun hairstyle hit peak furry in 2016 when citizens took to the streets and interwebs to voice their negative opinions about what some would consider a dirtbag hairstyle. Boobie Trap is known for its no f*cks attitude on calling people out, from a “Shitty Yelper of the Month” to a sign shaming European tourists for being lousy tippers. Discarded man buns will join the bar’s wall of shame as Boobie Trap promises to “film the amputation” and pin the clumps of unwanted hair to the wall. While the new decor may be unappetizing to some, those who oppose the trend can breathe a sigh of relief upon seeing those bushy buns attached to something other than a grown man’s head.
While we here at Supercall could care less about your preferred hairstyle—as long as it doesn’t come anywhere near our cocktail—we think a full bottle of liquor is a pretty good incentive for trying out a new do this year.
