Sprouting a beard allows most men to get away with just about anything, and from looking at one of the most popular trends this year, that includes wearing a ponytail, it seems - Or, a bun, to be more precise. 

The Beard & Bun is the latest look in the men's style sector, with more men sporting a full beard coupled with a small ponytail, usually tied tightly and high up on the head. As daft as this may sound, this style looks pretty damn cool, with both the beard and the bun complimenting each other well.

Let's face it, being able to grow a decent beard is a very enviable asset in itself, but having a good head of thick hair is also a major plus for a lot of men these days, so sporting the Beard & Bun kinda makes pretty good sense, right?
