Can we finally bid farewell to the man-bun trend?

From Harry Styles' shoulder-skimming locks to Justin Bieber's (albeit short-lived) purple 'do, there's no shortage of men's hair inspo floating about these days. But what gets our vote is Brooklyn Beckham's loose man braid, which Posh and Becks' eldest offspring debuted to his 5.9 million Instagram followers on Wednesday.

Men's braids are hardly a new phenomenon — guys of color have always rocked cornrows — but in the waning age of the man bun, dude's plaits are enjoying a new revival on the runway and red carpet (anyone remember Jared Leto's plait at the 2015 Golden Globes, or True Detective's Cary Joji Fukunaga accepting an Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series wearing pigtails in 2014?). Brooklyn, 16, brings his own version of the style to the table with a short and sweet French braid running down the middle of his head.

Dad David Beckham (whose mother was a hairdresser) has had his own adventures in hairstyles over the years, from buzzcuts to mohawks. Looks like Brooklyn may be following in his dad's well-coiffed steps.
