5 Reasons Why Every Guy Should Have a Man Bun Once in Their Life

I grew my hair for 1 year and 9 months and achieved man bun status after about a year. Recently, I decided to cut it. I just thought it was time partly because long hair can be somewhat of a hassle and also I was just ready for short hair again. I enjoyed having the long hair and there were a few things I learned from growing it out which is why I’m writing this piece- 5 reasons why every man should grow out their hair to a man bun or at least man bun length in their lifetime.

So here are some reasons I thought up.

1.Persistence- setting a goal and sticking to it

One of the things that growing out your hair teaches you is persistence. Obviously, there are the so called awkward stages and during this time there are points when you’ll want to cut it all off. (This happened multiple times for me) But if you have the goal of a man bun, you overlook the awkward stages and strive for the ultimate prize. Just as we should in life. Just remember to keep on going.

2.Focus on important things in life

In those awkward stages there might be times you think you look like a fool or your friends tell you your hair is terrible. But that doesn’t matter. Who cares what you look like. What matters is how you treat people. If you feel looked down upon due to your awkward stage hair. Who cares. It’s probably because they don’t even know you anyway or it’s just your friends ragging on you. Focus on what’s important, not the hair but how you treat people, relationships you have and who you surround yourself with.

3.Empathy for Females

Growing your hair out will give you a newfound respect for women in your life with long hair. You will now understand why they make take a little longer to get ready and the effort it takes to get their hair looking good. Seeing the world from someone’s else’s perspective is always a good thing.

4.You don’t know unless you try

If you bring up long hair with your friends or acquaintances you may get the reactions like it will look dumb on me or my hair is too curly etc. etc. But at the end of the day. You will never know unless you try. So if you would like to see what you look like in a man bun or long hair, just try it out. Don’t make assumptions. You may really like it but maybe you won’t. There’s some old saying nothing ventured nothing gained.

5.Use it or lose it

Straight up. We may not have our hair forever. There are those of us that are blessed with good genes and what not but some of us aren’t. Our long hair/ man bun chances may be limited so why not grow it out before you don’t have the chance to anymore.

So that’s it. The 5 reasons why every man should grow out hair to a man bun. Thanks for reading! Stay Chillin my friends!

Pittsburgh Kid Quits Job and Starts Podcast

A Podcast Based Out of Pittsburgh

Hey whats up, My name is Eric and host a podcast called Chillin with Deke based out of Pittsburgh. Back in February I quit my job working 9-5 and decided to start this thing. It’s tough to exactly explain “Why” other than it was on my heart and I thought I could be good at it. So I wrote about quitting/starting the podcast in my first blog post back in March which you can check out here.

So the podcast. What’s it about? I enjoy listening and learning and hope you enjoy the same. My goal was and is to hear stories and wisdom from successful/interesting/ inspirational people and see how I can apply to my life. And yes I’m from Pittsburgh and have guests from Pittsburgh but the podcast is not limited to just the city. Just as rappers like Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller are from Pittsburgh but they interact with people all over the  nation/world. I hope to do the same- have interesting guests from all over but also represent the city.

Honestly, there’s a bunch of podcasts like this out there. But what makes mine a little different is I have done nothing “noteworthy” like most people who host podcasts have. Whether it’s something entrepreneurial, in media, or radio- I have no experience in any of that. I didn’t have any connections other than my first 3 guests. I’m just an every man, chillin and chasing a dream which is to do podcasts with cool people.

With all that being said, I guess Chillin with Deke has layers. Almost a story within a story. So you can obviously listen to my podcast and hear some cool stuff from interesting people, but the other story is me and my journey to see where this podcast takes me. Where it will take me? I don’t know and that’s the fun part. However, I’ll write about my experiences/what I’m learning/ new stuff I’m on this website and also on the podcast. And hopefully by Chillin with Deke, you can be helped/ inspired on your journey in life too!

For my most recent podcast where I share more of my story in detail about why I quit my job, lessons I’ve learned on this journey, and why I do it click here.

Thanks, Peace and hope this helps.
