Though his hairstyles can be a bit Marmite, you can’t say Machine Gun Kelly’s barnet is boring. And his medium length hair with piecey man bun is the latest way he’s given his bleached bonce a little unexpected twist on the red carpet.
It’s giving MFH serious retro vibes TBH – I’m thinking a more product-heavy version of the wispy 90s updos beloved of celeb ladies of the era like Alicia Silverstone, no?
But little word of warning to MGK – given the rumours he’s had a hair transplant, MFH hopes he’s giving those refreshed hair strands plenty of TLC.
Because with all the colour changes, extreme product use and heated tools involved in many of his lewks, it’s survival of the fittest follicles…
- Machine Gun Kelly’s medium length hair with piecey man bun goes to the top of his collar when it’s down.
- His hair has been cut in choppy layers of different lengths all over – it has a 70s shag look when it’s unstyled.
- Machine Gun Kelly’s hair has been bleached blonde which takes a professional to do if you want it to be an even tone all over and not have yellowy blotches near the roots.
- If you like the colour looking fresh, you’ll need to get the regrowth touched up every 4 weeks.
- The hair gets easily damaged when it’s bleached, so ask your stylist if they can use a bonding treatment like Olaplex or similar to help prevent damage while it’s being coloured.
- Machine Gun Kelly’s medium length hair with piecey man bun is, unsurprisingly, all about the product.
- Ideally, this is best on 2nd or 3rd day hair, but if you have to wash it use a sea salt shampoo.
- Don’t use conditioner.
- Gently towel dry the hair (don’t rub it, just pat the moisture out gently).
- Use a heat protecting product all over your hair.
- Then spritz it all over with a sea salt spray or texture product you like.
- Blow dry the front of it back, and pull it into a little bun using a small elastic band.
- Make sure you’ve pulled some chunky strands of hair down on both sides.
- Using small hair straighteners, straighten each pulled down strand.
- Apply some matt paste/clay/wax to the strands.
- Spritz liberally with high hold hairspray.
