Ken got a makeover. There are now more Ken dolls to choose from, including one with a man bun.
Twitter is blowing up about it.

Nostradamus predicted that the world would end soon after the Ken doll got himself a man bun makeover. https://t.co/ZzMpfb995A— Kirkland Ciccone (@KirklandCiccone) June 20, 2017
The reason I'm conflicted is not because I think a man bun is lame. In fact, I find many men with buns attractive. What makes me hesitant about liking the man bun on Ken is because I always felt like Barbie and Ken were timeless. They were more about fashion and not about fads. So, I'm all for making Barbie and Ken with different body types and skin tones...but I feel like a man bun would be considered a fad. Thoughts?
