In no way is the man bun a new trend. It’s been around for years and been done by everyone from surfer dudes to soccer players. Yet, when we saw Leto walk the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globes with a top knot, we asked ourselves: Is this trend sweeping Hollywood sexy or silly?

That said, we compiled 10 of the most significant man buns of all time, so take a look and let us know: Are you a fan?
Oh, and in case any of you guys are skeptical, even Vaughn Acord, grooming gtylist to the stars, approves.
