For his "controversial" (aka completely white-washed) movie, “The Great Wall,” Matt Damon rocked a man bun. Submitted for your approval:

It takes most men years of patience and hair growth to achieve locks long enough for a coveted man bun, but Damon took the easy way out: 

He purchased a set of hair extensions.  

According to Damon, his man bun required "700 extensions" and 12 hours of work to create.

“I mean, they put 700 extensions in,” Damon told Us Weekly in this week's print issue. "It took 12 hours, and then I had to try and keep them in."

(Welcome to the world of being a woman in the entertainment industry, buddy.)

He even had a hairstylist fly from London to China for the job.

Yahoo Celebrity reported in August that a London-based hairstylist would fly to Beijing just to style Damon's bun.

Which leaves me with one question: If Damon's man bun literally took a village, why does it look so terrible?

It's almost as though the actor picked up a tangled ball of hair that had accumulated on the floor of a barber shop, shrugged, and said, "That'll do." 

I'm not being harsh — Damon even referred to his own extensions as a "rat’s nest."

"It was like a rat’s nest,” Damon attested before adding "I think there was stuff living in there.”

*screams forever*

His fans also think his man bun is grade-A awful.

Damon definitely found himself in a hairy situation with his "Great Wall" man bun.
