Mattel’s Barbie has always kept up with the fashions of the time. Now the toymaker has unveiled its next line of dolls, the ‘Fashionistas.’ The addition that has the Internet abuzz is an updated Ken doll, now complete with the infamous man bun.

The new Kens come in two varieties: slim and broad. Other dolls added to the line have dark lipstick, curly hair, dyed blue hair, cornrows and natural hair. These changes in style, size and design come in the wake of Barbie’s three-year campaign to include more diversity in skin color and body type. The man-bun Ken has been widely mocked on Twitter for sporting an over-the-hill fad and excessive ‘hipster’ fashion.
