In a study of search terms from January 2013 to August 2015, Google found that more internet users are interested in men's hair than women's hair, that "man bun" is one of the most popular search terms of 2015, and that Harry Styles is the celebrity most associated with the trend. He has so much to be proud of, bless him. 

Thanks to the likes of Harry, Jared Leto and Leonardo DiCaprio, "how to grow a man bun" and "how to tie a man bun" are among the most common beauty terms on Instagram.

In other news, "natural hair," "box braids" and "goddess braids" are the biggest search terms for women, and are most popular down South. Google also reports that people are searching for grey and silver hair thanks to Rihanna's brush with the color in 2013, and interest in lavender hair has spiked since Katy Perry wore the color at the Grammy Awards.

Oh—and also search-y? Comb-overs. Look at what you've done, Donald Trump.
