Scroll TV reporter Sydney Jensen interviewed students on the BYU-Idaho campus to get their reactions regarding the university’s policy regarding the “man-bun.”
The “man-bun” is typically worn with hair shaved on the sides of the head with a top-knot worn in the middle.
“We would consider the ‘man-bun’ to be an extreme hairstyle,” said Tyler Barton, Student Honor Administrator. “It’s just something that deviates from the norm.”
Barton said any hairstyle that is different or uncommon would fall under this same category, therefore receiving the same action.
“As part of the dress and grooming code, we commit to avoid extreme hairstyles,” said Kevin Miyasaki, Student Services & Activities Vice President. “A ‘man-bun’ would be considered not consistent with this standard.”
