Matt Damon is now rocking a thick man bun. Typically he wears his hair in a short, shaved cut, but at a press conference for his latest film Jason Bourne he showed up with really long hair thanks to the help of extensions . The last time we saw him rocking long strands was back in 2015, when he wore a ponytail for his movie The Great Wall. Damon wasn’t shy about revealing his hair secrets, and he explained it all while on The Graham Norton Show . “There were 700 hair extensions,” Damon confessed. “It was a full day to put them in. They flew somebody all the way to Beijing to put them in.”
Damon isn’t the only star that’s making a strong case for the man bun. A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio and David Beckham have also worn the cool updo in the past. Some people love a great man bun while others aren’t quite fans. Either way, we can all agree that these guys are handsome regardless of how they wear their hair.
