Ken gets a makeover: You can now buy the doll with a man bun (plus 14 other versions)

Lovers of the man bun, rejoice! Your (questionable) preference is now reflected in the look of the world's most famous male doll: Ken.

After decades (the last major update happened 56 years ago), Mattel announced 15 new Ken looks that include different body types (slim, broad and original—whatever that ever meant), skin tones, eye colors and hairstyles.

 

"By continuing to expand our product line, we are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation,” said Lisa McKnight, senior vice president and general manager of Barbie.

Barbie got her own realistic makeover over a year ago, when curvy, tall and petite dolls were added to the line. Considering that a live-action Barbie movie starring Amy Schumer is set to be released in the summer of 2018, we think it's about time that Ken himself started looking like a man that actually lives in our world.

You can buy the new Kens for $9.99 in select shops and online stores right now, but the doll will be available nation-wide starting July 8. Check out the 15 new dolls right here:
