While we can't think of many positives when it comes to the man bun, the cut that caused a fashion furore back in 2014 has come into some use recently after a car vandal was caught thanks to his distinctive (read: terrible) hairstyle.
As reported by the AP, CCTV footage captured images of a man with a man bun vandalising cars in the south side of Pittsburgh, with the culprit eventually being reprimanded thanks to an eagle-eyed resident who recognised the top-knotted terror as a neighbour, 22-year-old Isaac Gettleman, who now faces 36 counts of criminal mischief.
To quote the AP: "Gettleman lives in the same neighbourhood, which led fellow resident Erin Catalina to wonder, 'What motivates someone to do that, I have no idea.' She was referring to the vandalism, not Gettleman's hair style."
So, if you are a petty criminal with a stupid haircut, beware - because it just might be the clue that cracks the case.
