The man bun is officially dead thanks to Kit Harington (aka Jon Snow from HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones). He’s only the hottest actor of the moment — and he’s the sole reason that man perms or “merms” are a legit trend. 

“It’s definitely become bigger in this year alone,” Sara Benitez of NYC-based salon Hayato, told Mashable. “It’s very of-the-moment.” She also noted that perms “give men definition and texture — and of course, sex appeal.”

We can definitely attest to the sex appeal of those ringlets!

How do you ask for the “merm” at your hair salon? Benitez told Mashable that instead of tight ringlets — you know, the perm you had back in the ’90s — men are requesting tousled, soft waves.

We’ll leave you with a few #manperm shots from Instagram because…summer is coming.
